Review: Dragonfire Hot Sauce

I met Rick Villafrade from Dragonfire Hot Sauce at the Bowers Chilefest back in September. He had been in the business of making hot sauce for just a month at that time. First show to boot. He seemed eager to please and was willing to listen when I told him about the fact people do not like fructose corn syrup in their hot sauce. I enjoyed the flavor of his sauces, and wanted me to setup a review, so he gave me some bottles to take back with me. It didn’t take him long to ship out replacement bottles to the ones he gave me for review without any of the fructose corn syrup.

We decided to taste both styles with and without the corn syrup to see the difference. The reviewers for this review are Atomic, Eh? and myself. Eventhough my video is long, I think you will get a kick out of my trials and tribulations for this review. Enjoy.

    I have been eating this sauce on everything! :hungry: It does have that jolokia flavor…For me that’s one of the things I like about it. And it’s hot! 😈 I can’t wait to try his super hot. Thanks Buddah for hooking me up on this. :_toastbeer: Cheers!

    Buddah….For the first three minutes or so, you had me rolling.

    I don’t think I would be interested in this sauce unless the consistency problem was remedied. I could tell from both of the videos that it was way too thick. I don’t like runny sauces. But, thick sauces ruin the experience, also.

    Good reviews, guys. 🙂

    Remember, this company is brand new. I think patience might be in order. The base sauce is good, plus they have all ready made 1 adjustment with the corn syrup. Tweaking is part of every good business. I heard the passion in Rick’s voice at the show, and he is all ready playing with Trinidads and Naga together, and that sauce in next for review. I am just not doing that one. :splode:

    I will give them that much. It sounds like he is open to suggestions.

    Naga and Trinidad? :_onfire: That’s sounds like a killer combo.

  • December 9, 2010 at 9:30 pm

    It is called Naga’s Revenge.

  • December 10, 2010 at 10:42 am

    :splode: I love it spicy & HOT :_onfire: !

    Hey Guys,
    thank you for the reviews, just a quick note neither one of the sauces had either the Bhut Jolokia or Trinidad peppers in them (they are both habanero based).

    Ryan, email me your info, i would like to send you a bottle for you to try and review.. Everyone did a great job on their reviews and look forward to seeing the reviews on the Naga’s Revenge..

    Happy Holidays Everyone

    The only sauce I know of that combined Jolokia and Trinidad Scorpion (and hab) is the HBD “Thomas Gately’s Ball Kickin’ Wing Sauce”….There are only 3 bottles left here….so good!!

  • December 11, 2010 at 7:06 pm

    I tasted it over and over again, if there is no jolokia in there then I am a mistaken, but it certainly tastes it for sure. I know Ammond said the same, so are you 100% sure?

  • December 11, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    Ammond, why did you think it had the Trini in it??

  • December 11, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    I will:)

  • December 11, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    You all ready are. I told you about this one.

  • December 11, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    Buddah…Foo Foo drinks?

  • December 11, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    You were hillarious.

  • December 11, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    I am pretty sure, i sent you a bottle of my Mild sauce.. try that one, it would have the same taste.. i sent a bottle of the Naga Revenge to Atomic Eh? lets see if he can tell the difference, like i said i am pretty sure that was hab based…

  • December 11, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    I will let u know then. Thanks.

  • December 12, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    I will attempt to compare all three. I was just talking about you Hot sauce yesterday to a friend. It does taste like there is Jolokia in it. The reason I say that is not the heat factor but just the fruity taste that reminds me of the jolokia. It has a very fruity, sweet taste. Not sure why…I look at the ingredients almost every time I try it and shake my head. It’s good, it’s hot, but is not the flavor I would expect from reading the label. Don’t let that discourage you-sauce on! :_punk:

  • December 12, 2010 at 12:05 pm

    I thought it had Jolokia in it. I have not had the scorpion pepper yet. So I can’t compare it to that.

  • December 12, 2010 at 12:13 pm

    I’m pretty sure you mentioned that it had Scorpion peppers in it…

  • December 18, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Thanks for this review and for telling us about this company. I didn’t buy his sauce, but I did buy his Trinidad Scorpion powder and it ended up being my new favorite. I hope he offers other exotic superhots in the future. I’m anxious to try 7 Pot and Chocolate Habanero. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks, I might not have found my new favorite pepper if it hadn’t been for this site. 😉

  • December 19, 2010 at 11:03 am

    SB, thanks for stopping by, and I am glad you were some help to you. I too am a big fan of the flavor of the scorpion. I was not aware until now that Dragonfire was selling ground pepper. Good to know.

  • December 28, 2010 at 9:06 am

    Check back in 2 weeks, we will be adding new products after the new year, ground chocolate habs will be one of them.. any questions please don’t hesitate to email us.
