NOLA SHOW REVIEW- Zydeco Spice Company

This is an on the spot review from the NOLA Hot Sauce & Gourmet Food Show in New Orleans. Our review team consisted of Eric Grant and Butch Taylor. I will add that I loved the Blackberry Blast, which was also chosen as the winner of the best fruit based hot sauces at the show. Well deserved.

With this review we have 4 products they gave us to sample. First we have the Cajun Carnival spice blend which they served in an olive tapenade. Then we went through all 3 of their hot sauces- Bangkok Blast, Blackberry Blast and their original Bayou Blast. The Bayou Blast sounds like one of those frozen foo-foo drinks they have on Bourbon Street. Their website is going to list all their products by next week for those interested in trying them out. Currently they only list their spice blends and their original Bayou Blast. They will also be at the Houston Hot Sauce Show in September if you wish to try them out then.

Let us see what our crack team had to say about these products.

    I may have to order some of the Blackberry since you all liked it – I wasn’t really clear on whether anyone actually liked the other sauces enough to buy them…

    The tapenade sounds good. I like the idea of companies mentioning and demo-ing good pairings for their products.

    I will get the blackberry sauce when they put it up on their site.

    Thanks again Buddah! All of the hot sauces are available on the site We’re offering 20% off for a 3-pack of them. All of the hot sauces are about flavor first but do have a nice 150K heat index, a late from the African Birdseye peri-peri pepper.

    Blackberry Blast has been selling like crazy since it won 1st place at the NOLA Show.
    Bayou Blast came in 3rd place at the show and is great as an everyday hot sauce.
    Bangkok Blast is for Asian food with flavors of lemongrass, ginger and clove. It’s the hottest since it uses peri-peri and chipotle.

    I just tried to place an order, but it rejected it because my Paypal shipping addy is different from my Paypal billing addy – only time that has happened to me…???
