The bottles were shipped in a bright red box protected by a bubble mailer to ensure that everything stayed in tact during transit.
A peek inside!
An info card listed all of the sauces, as well as a little background info on each one and suggestions on how to best enjoy them. — All of this month’s sauces were 2017 Screaming MiMi award winners!
Why yes, this label did need a closeup shot — and it had absolutely nothing to do with its cheeky name. 😉 A 2017 Screaming MiMi Grand Champion award winner, this sauce is made with a tropical blend of habanero peppers, mangoes, bananas, pineapple, raisins, and fresh spices. Enjoy it on tacos, pizza, chicken wings, burgers, and more.
This green sauce features a variety of peppers including organically grown fire roasted jalapeños, as well as the Carolina Reaper, 7-Pot, Trinidad Scorpion and the Bhut Jolokia. It’s also flavored with a blend of Granny Smith green apples, roasted garlic, scallions, tomatillos, cilantro, lime juice, cumin, and sea salt. It’s great to give some flavor to hot dogs, eggs, tacos, burritos, and even salad.
A 2017 Screaming MiMi Hot Sauce Hall of Fame Inductee, this Florida-born sauce is made using a 28-year-old recipe utilizing aged cayenne peppers, garlic, onions, black pepper, vinegar, and spices. It has just the right balance of both heat and flavor, making it ideal for enjoying on popcorn, pizza, eggs, subs, wings, cocktail sauces, and Bloody Mary’s.
