Mustard based hot sauces and barbecue sauces can be “hit or miss” depending on their execution and ingredients. They can either be stellar (original and different), or mundane (tastes like yellow mustard). I don’t think there is much room for anything in-between.
Bigfat’s 2o8 bajan style hot sauce falls into the stellar category. It’s very chunky, flavorful and zesty. The second creation in their signature line-up of sauces, 2o8 bajan sauce is mildly spicy while retaining the gourmet taste and profile that makes Bigfat’s sauces such a big hit.

A nice, thick, mustard based sauce that screams “put me on hot dogs, pretzels, or sandwiches”! Let’s look at the details of Bigfat’s 2o8 bajan hot sauce.
Bajan is a Creole word usually referring to a language of Barbados, or in this case a style of seasoning or sauce that originates from the islands. Bigfat’s has captured the flavor and nuances of an island based creole mustard hot sauce with their batch of 2o8 sauce.
Ingredients: water, onion, yellow mustard (distilled vinegar, water, mustard seed, salt, tumeric, paprika, garlic powder, spices), carrots, habaneros, garlic, vinegar, sea salt, vitamin C (ascorbic acid)
Texture & Appearance:
Taste Straight Up:
You can really taste the mustard and onion flavors. For those of you that don’t like a big hit of vinegar, you’ll appreciate that it is muted here. There is some sweetness up front too. The fiery habanero heat finishes things up.
A soft pretzel is the perfect canvas for sauces like this, and I love the easy SuperPretzel.
– Surprisingly spicy for only the 2nd warmest sauce in the line-up, 2o8 brings on the habanero heat.
Bigfat’s has some of the classiest and consistent designs on their labels. Without question, the best.
Overall Rating (Taste on Food, Final Thoughts):
– for being the best mustard-based hot sauce I’ve ever had. Everything about this sauce is 4 star, from the color to consistency to flavor.
