REVIEW- Fire Over Ice Peach Habanero Sauce

A few months back, Doug from www.PeppersandMore.com reached out to me to do a product review of something he has in development. After years of jerky making, and with his lovely wife having been a successful hot sauce maker, he decided it was time to try a new venture. A dessert hot sauce using a combination of peaches and habaneros. Can jerky boy make the leap? We assembled a crack review team for this task. Let us see how this new age hot sauce does. We first have Mike from Madness, then to Phil and Matt and then to yours truly.

    Buddah – 4 hearts seems kinda high for a product that’s not even on the market yet, and fizzed over like an elementary school science project on camera….just sayin’.

    Tom, I really liked the flavor a lot and can not think of one other peach hot sauce that I really as much. Sure the fizzy chemistry experiment was out of the normal, but it was the flavor I enjoyed. More peach flavor higher score. Also, Phil and Matt were grossed by the color and I was drawn to it. Once I shook up the remainder, it smoothed out and was a clean orange color.

    I did notice it during my editing stage, but I left it in for the hilarity of it. This was a fun review once the eruption started, and I just went with the flow of things. Overall, I am a sucker for sweet sauces, and even if this needs some tweaking, I really did enjoy it, and would buy some more to play with sans the volcano. :splode:

    I didn’t love or hate the sauce, but felt it needed something more. By itself it was fairly bland and needed more sweet and a stronger peach flavor. Of course you really won’t be eating this by itself, and it worked better over ice cream, but I was really looking for more of that sweet and freshness. I think they can tweak it and it would bring up the overall acceptance. Great idea, though! We could use a good spicy peach sauce.

    Hope you get to try Bonfatto’s Wing Sauce & Marinade Peaches N Scream over ice cream as a comparison

    This sounds like a sauce worth trying for sure. The Peaches and Scream on ice cream has me very intrigued.

    Pluses on Peaches and Scream. I enjoyed that one. Thick, sweet, syrupy, nice heat. I’d have to try it on different food types, but it worked on grilled chicken.

    I got a bottle of this from Doug last week….candy, tastes like delicious candy with notes of fresh peppers bursting through! I have yet to “use” it other than a few swigs off the neck here and there, but so far i dig it!

    Gotta agree with fht on this one. No ingredient list on the bottle? And it fizzed over? No way in hell I would have touched it.

    I had some of Fire Over Ice a few months back but because of the whole divorce drama I didn’t post a review of it. I loved it! When employed correctly, peach and habs are a perfect match. I would have given this a rating of 4 or 4 1/2 out of 5. :_thumbsup:

    Sorry to hear about the bad stuff, Scott. Good luck moving forward. All the best. :_greenpepper:

    The fizzing meant that the product wasn’t bottled correctly. Either that or its old and fermented. Like maybe its been in storage for a while? Maybe an old unreleased THT product that’s been relabeled? I know it sure sounds a lot like Make Me Moan Mango, only with peaches.

    The sauce fizzed because it was bad and the maker just laughs it off. Thats just wrong. There was either an issue with the packing of the product or the product was old and fermented. To not address that is totally irresponsible for the maker and this site.

    Again I would like to thank everyone for the input on this project… I say project because that is just what it is. I contacted Al awhile back about getting some feed back about a sauce that i was looking into. The key word here is looking into to!! The fizzing was due to way to much acid in the peaches, A problem that will be looked into if we decide to move forward with this project. There was no ingredient list on the bottles because they where just sent out to a few people to get an opinion,and that is what we got.

    As it being irresponsible on my part as well as I love it Spicy………Everyone is initialed to there own opinion and that where i am going to leave it…. I had a chance to see the comments on here before they where deleted and i would like to say this.. “The Truth” is gone and has been for awhile now….Shit was said…names where called… and feeling where hurt….There is One comment about someone’s family that was uncalled for and for that I am truly sorry..There was reasons behind those comments and many know why….The back and fourth stops here for me…..

    Thanks for listening….

    The sauce fizzed because of unkilled pathogens and bacteria caused by improper bottling.

    *From Buddah- After much thought and a full day of deliberation. I found the link provided here to be nothing more than a man looking to continue a grudge that is many years in the making and has no place here. It is my feeling that while there is definitely bad blood, I have or had friends on both sides of this feud, and I do not wish to have to choose sides. I have been dragged down by this man who I thought was a friend into something that made me look like a tool. Why? Because he would not stand idly by and be heard while his posts were deleted. He had to create a whole post to show that I was neglectful of my duties as a bloghost, and he paraphrased our private email conversations to make me out to be some sort of uncaring soulless person. He did later take that part down, but our friendship was strained from the attempt. I never received an apology for it, but he did continue to question my decision making.

    I try to be as neutral of a person as one can be. There is definitely merit to his arguments, but to go out of your way to create trouble for me and this company in his review, well that is a plea for help in my opinion. I tried to address it, but my post never got past moderation and my email responses got more and more strained.
    I am closing this thread down, and I am sorry that it came to this. I deleted some comments over the last day plus in the need to keep the peace. This website will not have a place for fights, so if you wish to have one, then do it elsewhere. You are free to debate, but do not make it personal.

    To address the improper bottling issue, that DK was nice enough to investigate, we, as reviewers must be careful in tasting products that have an inconsistency to them as this review had. I was not fully aware of the seriousness of this, and I must apologize to my two young reviewers, Phil & Matt for taking on the risk with myself. I will not take such a risk in the future nor do I advise anyone else to.

    Thank you.

    I didn’t note anything unusual with the bottle I received or the sauce itself. Obviously, though, food safety is of utmost importance. I’m working on a new book about chili pepper preserving and safety is a huge part of the material. Thanks for including me in the review team. :_dancingdevil:
