Lucky Dog Brown Label – Ridiculously Tasty Mustard Chipotle Hot Sauce

Lucky Dog Hot Sauce’s newest offering called Brown Label also has the amusingly long name of “Ridiculously Tasty Mustard Chipotle Hot Sauce”.

But Lucky Dog can be excused. In our opinion, you can name your sauce anything you want as long as you excel in flavor and taste.

A unique style of medium heat chipotle sauce, with the rich notes of Meco chipotles and a dynamic balance between mustard, chipotle and cumin. Bartlett pear juice and figs add very subtle sweetness, while the creeping heat of the scotch bonnet chile builds in heat in a slow & sneaky way. ~LDHS

And Lucky Dog Hot Sauce Brown Label is already winning awards from all over:

  • 1st Place Pepper Blend – 2015 New York Hot Sauce Expo Screaming Mimi Awards
  • 2nd Place Medium – 2016 Scovie Award Winner
  • Finalist – 2016 Good Food Awards – Pantry Division

The flavor profile is complex, yet the end result is simple and tasty. Deliciously smoky but not overpowering with just a hint of sweetness to balance things out.

Chef Fartenburn’s Gourmet Hot Sauce

From an award-winning chef comes this second silly-named hot sauce. But sometimes the cover belies the contents. This is another winner of delicious hot sauce flavor from Chef Wayne Howey.

Chef Fartenburn’s Gourmet Hot Sauce – from Tropical Island Gourmet

Tomatoes, peppers, onion and garlic flavors all say “taco sauce” to me. Despite the cartoon label (and the implied joke), this sauce won’t burn your butt.

It’s a blend of 3 classic peppers along with the right amount of vinegar, onion and garlic. Some mango juice is thrown in to make everything all nice and happy.

Heat Rating: Rated 3.5 out of 5 Stars – Thanks to the habaneros, the sting really lingers… but the cayenne and jalapeños along with the mango round things out nicely. Big heat for taco meat.

Overall Rating: Rated 3 out of 5 Stars – Thick and pulpy, this is a hot tomato based sauce that is perfect on tacos or burritos and the like. Bold and spicy taco-like sauce.

Ingredients: cayenne peppers, jalapeño peppers, habanero peppers, onions, vinegar, mango juice, mangos, tomatoes, roasted garlic, and salt.

Texture & Appearance: Deep red in color, slightly thick with lots of pulp and bits to chew on. Satisfying.

Taste / Heat: Tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic – the sweetness from the mangos is muted and acts only as a supporting player. This is not an overly sweet sauce. Hot and savory.
