Review Mama Bulls Louisiana Hot Sauce on Wings

Week of Wings II – Day 6 – Mama Bull’s Louisiana Hot Sauce

On Day 6 of our wing roundup this year, we bring you a a review of Mama Bull’s Louisiana Hot Sauce Cayenne Pepper Sauce as a straight wing sauce. No butter added, we just followed the directions on the bottle to dunk the wings in the sauce!

As a rule, I’m not a fan of Louisiana style hot sauces… but I’m getting there. Check out our review of Swamp Scum or Louisiana Gold Pepper Sauce and you will see I’m becoming a fan. This review is another great example of how a Louisiana style hot sauce is inching me closer to liking them.

Taste straight up:Rated 2.5 out of 5 Stars

Marilyn: There is a big hit of vinegar both through the smell and first taste. The taste is slightly sweet in a veggie way – probably the carrots.
Brian: At first I thought this was a very traditional Louisiana sauce, but it’s bigger than that. The flavor really pops!

Texture & Appearance:
Marilyn: I see crushed red peppers and seeds, and perhaps bits of garlic. At first I thought it may be too thin to cling to the wings, but it’s now setting up nicely and there is a thick coating on the wings.
Brian: A thin sauce with bits of garlic floating about. I also see crushed red pepper flakes and seeds. This sauce sets up nicely and clings very well to the wings.

Taste:Rated 2.5 out of 5 Stars

Marilyn: I taste vinegar first, then hot. Yes, hot hot… it’s burning my lips. Then I get a slower back of the throat burn. There’s a full flavor profile with the vinegar, heat and finally a nice warm depth of flavor. A winner with me.
Brian: A very traditional Louisiana flavor, this is a good flavor bringing on a nice medium-to-strong heat. I’m digging it. I wish we had prepped this sauce with some butter for a traditional “Buffalo” style sauce… but we followed the instructions on the bottle that said to simply toss the wings in the sauce.

Heat Level:Rated 3 out of 5 Stars

Marilyn: Make no mistake, this sauce is hot! I already said it burned me right away. Brian first thought it was mild, but then it got hotter for him.
Brian: Go figure. It was tame at first, but the more I ate, the hotter it got. I was surprised. And I grew to like it. I don’t think it was as good as other wing sauces we’ve reviewed here on but I would enjoy these at a local bar if they were their only offering. Just add beer!

Label/Graphics:Rated 2 out of 5 Stars – As you can see from the pic of the label above, Mama Bull’s label doesn’t exactly stand out. The words “hot sauce” are the most prominent. I think the Bull should be more “Mama-like” and less “Bull-like”. The label is just so-so. And we reviewed their “hot” version as opposed to the “mild” version which they also offer.

Overall Rating:Rated 3 out of 5 Stars – We’re awarding 3 stars for overall goodness. Heat, flavor, and consistency was pretty solid. Stay tuned for our review of Mama Bull’s Mild Louisiana Hot Sauce

  1. Don’t knock Mama Bull’s appearance….we all know they are injecting cattle with growth hormones these days! (And don’t mention her mustache, it ticks her off.)

  2. Thanks for this review. I was searching for a carrot based cayenne sauce. I think I’m going to get the wing sauce though. It has the exact same ingredient list, I wonder what the difference is between the wing sauce and the hot sauce.

    1. Thanks Jen. I would go ahead and order a bottle of each. The shipping is probably the same.

      Please let us know how you make out with the sauces.
