Let us get this out of the way first and foremost, Tabanero has no connection in anyway with the infamous Tabasco hot sauce or the McIlhenny family whom created it. Tabanero was named after the state of Tabasco, Mexico from which it is made and the habanero pepper. Combining the two words: Tabasco + Habanero = Tabanero. Ta Da! We assembled a team for this review and they are HairyZona’s own and cartoonist Derrick Wood, the Virginia couple Alex and Lauren, the Schobergs, and from the swamps of Louisiana and www.FieryWorld.com, the one and only Ken Alexander. Before we get to their reviews, let us educate you a little background for Tabanero Hot Sauce.Read more
From the age of 5 all the way until I was 21, I had a dog named Lucky. I loved my dog very much, and when you grow up with a dog that many years he is more than family, more than your protector, he truly is your best friend. You can see that 16 years went by, and in dog years that is 112 years old. So in reading about Lucky Dog Hot Sauce as you will see below, their company is named after their beloved dog named Lucky. So right there I am rooted for positive reviews from our team. Lucky Dog Hot Sauce presently has 3 styles, starting with the red label which is their medium fire-roasted which a balanced blend of habanero, serrano and jalapeno peppers. Next week we will review their green label which is their mild version of fire-roasted chiles, but the cayenne pepper replaces the habanero. Then in week 3 we will review their last hot sauce, the orange label which is their hot fire-roasted chile version using cayenne, jalapeno, serrano and a heavy dose of orange habanero to kick it up a notch to three. They are in the process of making an even hotter version they will call their black label which will be an extra hot, extra garlic sauce.Read more
It has been a real long time since we did a review for Rippin’ Red Sauce Company. Two and a half years in fact (HERE), and since then they have re-branded themselves as more than a mere wing sauce company introducing this new hot sauce with the help of our friends at Endorphin Farms. Together they created this “custom crafted habanero sauce”, as the label says. Let me take you to that custom crafted part and let us examine the ingredients:
Guava Nectar, Red Habanero Peppers, Onions, Lime Juice, Pumpkin, Distiled Vinegar, Garlic, Soybean Oil.
Guava and pumpkin? Not sure how they came up with that combination. I give them credit for trying even if the reviews go south. Speaking of which, let us introduce our review team. We have G from Northern Virginia, Zzombie & Big Daddy B from Louisiana and Jerret from Washington State. So we got 3 coasts covered. Can the guava, pumpkin, habanero hot sauce combo work is 3 different regions? You can check the videos and find out, but first here is a great deal from Rippin’ Red that you should take advantage of if you are interested in trying some of their products…Read more
After a small delay we have come to our final review for Demitri’s Bloody Mary Seasonings. They gave us 4 different Bloody Mary Seasonings and 2 of their Rim Spots. Below this paragraph you can click onto any of the reviews and catch how much our team adored these products. I would like to thank Demitri for allowing us to review his creations, and wish him much success in the near future. It looks like you have very good products that I would recommend to any Bloody Mary lover. I saw them on our good friends over at www.iBurn.com as well if you are doing any shopping for the holidays and want more than one company. If you want to support Demitri and buy direct, all the information is below the reviews. Once again we have Dale Gilbert, Fiber Joe who makes something very special with the seasoning, and round it up with Derrick Wood.Read more
This is our 3rd and last review for Big Red’s Hot Sauces. This Arizona hot sauce company uses the habanero flavor as their main ingredient in all their sauces, and in this ghost pepper version it still is prominent, but the ghost pepper is used to raise the heat level. The reviews for the first 2 sauces have been for the most part pretty decent save for one review. This sauce gets the best average with our review team. Please check out the other reviews and see what they have to offer.Read more
