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.
An award-winning sauce featuring organic Calabrian hot chili peppers imported directly from Italy. It also includes oven roasted garlic, red wine vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil. Enjoy this spicy, but not overbearing sauce on pizza, eggs, mac n’ cheese, soups, and more.
I think this is the sauce I’m most looking forward to trying. The info card hints at it being reminiscent of a “BBQ sauce with a lot more tang”. As a lover of BBQ sauce, this is totally right up my alley. Ingredients include yellow onions, dried chipotle peppers, garlic, sugar, dried guajillo peppers, and more.
According to the info card, this sauce was bottled and launched exclusively for Fuego Box! It was created in Denver, Colorado using all natural ingredients including habanero peppers, organic carrots, organic tomatoes, sunflower seeds, fresh garlic, and more. It’s gluten-free, sugar free, and in low sodium. Enjoy it on chicken wings, pizza, burgers, or even added to ketchup/mayo/bbq sauce as a flavor enhancer.
