Ever since I first moved to Buffalo in 2001 for college I have loved spicy foods. In fact I crave it. I’m sure it had something to do with all the Buffalo Chicken Subs and Wings I ate (well, still eat.). The thing is, I get bored with the same old mild, medium and hot sauces. I like to try to find unique flavors that are just a little different, but still spicy. That is why I am so glad that I have discovered Scotty B’s Gorurmet Hot Sauces! I was lucky enough to receive their award winning Berries in Heat to review.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, how could something with berries in it be spicy? Here is what their website has to say about Berries in Heat:
This unique, multiple award winning gourmet hot sauce was created in Scotty B’s home kitchen with the idea of making a fruit hot sauce using a medley of frozen berries that he had in his freezer. This new creation represented the first time Scotty B strayed from tomatoes, using vegetable juice instead. The changes did not stop with vegetable juice though, Scotty B also veered from the traditional path by using Serrano peppers. This combination of mixed berries with the unique spicy taste of the Serrano peppers makes this a very unique, one of a kind, guaranteed to tantalize your gourmet palate, hot sauce.

I first tried it by just letting some drip on my finger. When it first hit the front of my tongue I could taste the sweetness of the berries. A split second later I could taste the heat of the Serrano peppers further back on my tongue.
So far I have only tried the Berries in Heat sauce on chicken fingers but I can tell its going to be great on lots of things! I love this sauce! It is spicy enough that I feel the heat, but mild enough that I can keep on shoving food in my mouth. I will definitely be bringing this sauce tailgating with us! It would be awesome on steaks and burgers!
