Fire Ant Juice
Gourmet Hot Sauce

Fire Ant Juice from Tropical Island Gourmet Company http://www.fireantjuice.com is offering a free bottle of Hobo Howey’s Jalapeno Treats with any order until the end of August 2010. Read on to find out how you can get yours!

This sauce rocks! I think the name “Fire Ant Juice” is funny, and the graphics on the label are a hoot. I know “fire ants” are a species, but Fire Ant Juice reminds me of when I was a kid and there were ants, and I had a magnifying glass…. oops! Sorry PETA, I digress.

This sauce has a lot of body and doesn’t run when you pour it out. It’s slightly chunky with bits of jalapenos, onions, and garlic. Very fine bits. And it holds its shape even after 20 mins on the plate.

Marilyn and I tried this sauce first on a spoon, then on tortilla chips, then on tacos.

When we poured some onto a spoon, it was hot. HOT. But after a few sips, the initial heat went away and we were able to discern its qualities better.

We then tried it on some chips to get the flavor:

Marilyn: I tasted the cayenne first, with a big hit of the roasted garlic. The mango smoothed it out a little for me, making it a very savory taste with a nice bite of heat.
Brian: I like the habanero profile – very unique with the mango. Hot, sweet, and very spicy – the garlic and salt really rounded it all out for me – and I love the roasted garlic in it.

Fire Ant Juice has plenty of heat with great flavor – on a scale of 1 – 10, we’d put it at an 8. But the flavor is what won us over.

Then we poured a lot onto some tacos made with our own taco seasoning.

Fire Ant Juice Gourmet Hot Sauce Ingredients:
cayenne peppers, jalapeno peppers, habanero peppers, onions, vinegar, mango juice, tomatoes, roasted garlic, salt

As you can see from the simple list of ingredients, there are no added sugars, no “parentheses” listing preservatives or the popular “xanthan gum” etc, … in other words it’s a straight-up gourmet hot sauce done right.
Fire Ant Juice Gourmet Hot Sauce is a keeper that we will have on hand at all times. We think you’ll love it as much as we do.

  1. You guys have never steered me wrong yet, so I just ordered a bottle of this, the Mad Dog Ultra BBQ, and the new orange crush habanero sauce from their website.

    1. Great! I love the Mad Dog sauces, especially the Inferno. And Orange Crush is my all time favorite habby sauce.

      Thanks for bringing them both up, as I’ve never written about either one! Doh!

      I think you will really like the Fire Ant Juice too.

      1. Actually I just ordered Mad Dog 357 Extreme Wing Sauce, Piney Pete’s Jersey Heat hot sauce, and Hobo Howey’s Chipotle Garlic Sauce. Woot!

    1. That’s awesome Wayne. I hope everyone enjoys their Fire Ant sauces as much as we do. Great promo job!

  3. Somehow, I like the name. It gives an impression of being hot and spicy just with the name alone. Sure would love to try it out one of these days.

    1. One of these days is here now. 🙂
      Now’s the time to get in on the free bottle with your order!

  4. Got my products from FireAntJuice.com this week and cracked them open last night. Going to do a post on my blog later this week but wanted to say I am very happy. Fast shipment and packed well.

    I have always just used Tabasco and Cholula, but Fire Ant Juice ruined me, can’t ever go back to that thin stuff again. Fire Ant Juice’s rich texture and flavorful heat are excellent!

    Thanks Brian for reviewing this and thanks to Chef Wayne for a great product and fast service.

    1. Hey Chris, you are on your way to becoming a true “chilehead” !

      While I love me the Tabasco and the Cholula sauces, there are a few more out there that are worthy of the “always on hand” status.

      Great to hear you are going to post a review on Fire Ant. Looking forward to it.


  5. Chris thanks for your good comments. I just checked out your blog site, very nice. I can’t wait to see what you do with Fire Ant Juice and the other sauces. Have a Hot and Spicy Day – Chef Wayne

    1. Hi Chef Wayne. Chris’ blog is awesome. He really has some great recipes to share.

      Happy to have both of you get together via HotSauceDaily.com.


  6. Hi Brian-I just stumbled upon your blog (linked from Chris @Nibble Me This). These hot sauces sound great- I am going to order some today! My daughter is a “chilehead”, and puts hot sauce on just about everything. There is no such thing as too hot for her! Her current favorites are chipotle based sauces, but I’m sure she will love the complexity of the Fire Ant Juice (it’s not just about the heat, after all!). I look forward to reading your archives for more product recomendations!

  7. Saw your “free bottle” promotion for Fire Ant.
    I believe we could provide a special for you as well with any of our products that would be of interest.
    We also have had good response for sites which held a drawing or competition to give away a gift box.
