Ed’s Roadhouse Hott Dam Good Pineapple Habanero Sauce

We last visited Ed’s Roadhouse for his Sriracha Wasabi Jerky. An amazing jerky that is the best we’ve ever had! Bar none. This time, it’s one of their 4 hot sauces we’re looking at – Ed’s Roadhouse “Hott” Dam Good Pineapple Habanero Sauce.

Ed’s Roadhouse describes Hott Dam Good Pineapple Habanero sauce as having a “Lightly sweet pineapple flavor with a habanero tang.” That’s putting it mildly. This sauce has a big kick! The habanero burn is predominant. The sweet pineapple is secondary.

Ingredients: habanero peppers, pineapple, sugar, salt, garlic, vinegar, xanthan gum, natural spices.

Great color and consistency

Texture and appearance: A beautiful bright colored sauce, the thick sauce and tiny chunks of pulp will please the eyes.

Taste: Wow. Bang. Hot. The habanero heat is way up front, with the sweet pineapple and sugars coming in a close second or third place. This is truly a habanero lovers sauce. No wonder they call it “Hott Dam Good”!

Overall impression: Personally, I prefer the sweet pineapple taste up front. Hott Dam Good Pineapple Habanero is all about the habanero pepper taste first, then the sweet kicks in.

True fans of the habanero pepper will enjoy the fresh taste that is first and foremost in this sauce. High quality ingredients and freshness bring this sauce to a level that is worthy of any chilehead’s pantry or as a gift for the person that just loves habanero sauces.

This sauce is made for pizza and other munchies.

Flavor: Rated 2 out of 5 Stars 2/5 stars – Other than the sweet pineapple, there’s not much going on here except the bright hot sting of the habanero pepper.

Heat: Rated 3.5 out of 5 Stars 3.5/5 stars – The burn is above average (2.5) but not over the top. If you know the classic fresh habanero burn, then this is it.

Deception Salsa “Entice” review

Deception Salsa Entice is a mild Corn and Bean salsa that is just as sweet as their Tease flavor, with the added sweetness of corn. Our second review of the Deception Salsa line-up may surprise you.

Entice – a Sweet Corn and Black Bean lovers salsa

If you like your salsa sweet, and are a fan of corn and beans, this salsa is for you. This is the second in a series of reviews of the Deception Salsa line-up. Our first was the Level 5 (their rating) Tease Salsa.

Ingredients: tomato, corn, onion, seasoned black beans (prepared black beans, water, salt, onion powder, spices, maltodextrin, garlic powder, natural flavor), sugar, green bell pepper, jalapeño pepper, red hot cherry pepper, white distilled vinegar, habanero pepper, chili powder, citric acid, black pepper, cumin, garlic

Texture & Appearance: Rated 3 out of 5 Stars – A pretty salsa that would look great on any table. Very coarse, with lots of corn but not enough black beans. We rate it high on looks, but low on flavor.

Taste Straight Up: Rated 1 out of 5 Stars – Sweet, sweet, sweet. The corn only adds to the sweetness, and the black beans are too few. Of all the flavors from Deception Salsa, this has to be their “throw-away” salsa. It exists only to fill a niche, and that doesn’t include us. No corn for me, and more beans for Marilyn, please.

Heat Level: Rated 1.5 out of 5 Stars – The mild heat is short lived. This might work at a family gathering or cookout where friends or family would enjoy a milder, yet exotic looking salsa.

Overall Rating (Taste on Food, Final Thoughts): Rated 1.5 out of 5 Stars – In our opinion, it’s not the biggest player in their salsa lineup. It almost seems like it exists to please a small corn and bean contingent. We pass on this one.

While certainly not our favorite of the Deception Salsas, it is still a solid product with the same great branding and label. And based on the quality alone, it is worthy of your consideration for purchase.
