REVIEW: Heartbreaking Dawns – Strawberry Trail Preserves

With Black Friday here I wanted to put up a review for my friend Johnny McLaughlin and to share this review with my audience because I personally think this is one of the better preserves out there to be had. In 2010, I created the Lenny Awards in memory of my departed Father and to reward best products of the year. I presented Heartbreaking Dawns(HBD), one for their Fiery Trail Preserves, presently my favorite product they make. Later Johnny followed that up with a very tasty datil pepper and mango preserve. To complete the trio he has introduced this strawberry one. This preserve is mixed with the world’s hottest pepper, the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, but it is a good mix that will bring out the flavor of the pepper and not too much of the heat you would expect. It is an enjoyable burn with a flavorful mix of fruit (strawberries and cranberries) that you will come back to again and again.

REVIEW: High Octane Sauce Company – JP5 Moruga Scorpion Pepper Sauce

This is our 2nd and last review for the High Octane Sauce Company out of Texas. They are using the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper which is presently the world’s hottest chile pepper. In our last review we gave feedback for their Hybrid Green Pepper Sauce which got a pretty decent review from our team scoring two 3 1/2’s and one 3 flaming hearts out of 5. Will this extra hot pepper sauce do as well? One way to find out folks, watch! Our review team once again is John Huber, Steve “The Machine” Smallwood, and Jacob Robertson. I wish Kevin Billings of High Octane Sauce Company the very best in their success for his young company. Things are all ready looking bright. Happy Turkey Day Weekend everyone, and start off your Black Friday with some good hot sauce here at High Octane.
