Ingredients: Carolina Reaper peppers, garlic, canola oil, vinegar, lime juice, mustard powder, chili powder and salt

I mentioned earlier that I'm generally not a fan of Carolina Reaper sauces; They tend to be all hot and have no flavor in my experience, but this one is different. The flavor of this sauce is like an explosion of garlic, with a very pleasant heat that quickly grows to the levels you would expect from a Carolina Reaper sauce.

I like this for two reasons, and the main one is that I like garlic sauces a lot, but it's difficult to make one with heat. It's hard to walk a tightrope, making sure that the flavor of the garlic isn't dominated by the taste of the pepper itself, and doesn't increase weirdly. The sweetness of the Reaper itself is working in your favor for once, giving it no flavor but plenty of heat to what would otherwise be a tasty but exceptionally smooth sauce.

The second reason is its smoothness. It's a great sauce to mix, as shown by Hot Ones (a talk show about eating hot wings).

I don't think of it as a condiment, but as a marinade or sauce to throw, it's one of the best on the market. The sauce is also “accidentally healthy,” as they say, with all natural ingredients and a number of minor side benefits (it's also vegetarian, gluten-free, and extract-free).

It's a bit expensive (the price per bottle is low, but the bottles are quite small), but that's to be expected for such a spicy sauce; A little helps a lot in most cases, but if you're going to use it to throw hot wings, you'll get over it pretty quickly.


A perfect marinade for almost anything.

Delicious garlic flavor

Burns slowly but eventually in intense heat

The creamy texture is smooth on the tongue and pairs well with most

The things you are going to marinate

The inconvenient

A little too creamy and spicy to make a good seasoning.
