Review by Darth Naga – bottle kindly supplied by Burning Desire Foods
Happy Friday chilli padawans! And even happier still because it’s this old pith lords 34th birthday (happy birthday to me, happy birthday … yeah you get the idea). So just to celebrate my birthday in style, I have a very special video review, of a very special sauce, from a very special company that sits close to my heart! (Wow that was a mouthful!). The sauce I review in this video comes to you from the lovely folks over at Burning Desire Foods, my good friend Jason sent me this sauce because he wanted me to video review something for him, and since the video reviews are *mostly* proper hot, he gave me one of his hottest new sauces from his “Dark Side” range, so pin ya lugholes back, open ya peepers and get ya laughing gear round this!
Ingredients: Red peppers, onions, celery, 7 pot jonah and 7 pot chilli, cider vinegar, lime juice, dark muscavado sugar, sea salt.
The thing that’s stands out the most with this sauce (aside from its name) is the professionally designed labels, wrapped around the unusual bottle. The bottles are akin to old school cough medicine bottles from yesteryear, the name of this sauce is quite a tongue twister, its moniker is “The dark side range: 7 pot scorpion insane hot sauce” and looking at the fiery red label, and the orangey pulpy fluid inside, this looks to be a hot one!
You’ll notice in this video I decided to review this sauce with an author by the name of Gideon Burrows, who happens to be writing a book about the chilli industry in Britain, and funnily enough the book is called “Chilli Britain: a hot and fruity adventure”. Gideon is travelling round the UK, visiting different people from the chilli industry, including reviewers, growers, chilli product makers and more, his travels will be chronicled in this new book due out towards the end of the year, and you can learn more about it, and pre-order the book over at http://www.chillibritain.com.
Right, without any further ado, here is the video in all its glory!
And there you have it, as expected I found it pretty darn hot, whilst Gideon didn’t seem too fazed at all! Some people have all the luck (and higher tolerances than yours truly!). The sauce, as mentioned in the video, is bloody tasty and because this was his first chilli review with me, I even gave him the bottle afterwards to go and enjoy at home, so if you’re reading this Gideon, I hope you enjoyed it!
You can all pick up a bottle of this sauce over at Burning Desire Foods for about 5 or 6 quid a bottle, and that’s a pretty darn good price for this tasty, yet punchy sauce that would go well on chips, or even mixed with a salsa for a nice spicy dip!
Right my chilli padawans, that’s all we have time for this week, I’ll hopefully get another video up soon, but it may take a while as I am now without camera and waiting for a tripod and kit to arrive so I can use my nice new spanky smartphone to do my reviews on! So keep your eyes peeled for that!
Have a good one padawans, and may the sauce be with you, always!!
