NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) — Ever wonder what it is about hot sauce that keeps people coming back for more? Is it the spicy flavor, clever name, eye-catching bottle design, or simply an addiction to the zesty life? “Chile Pepper” magazine heats up its pages this month with an in-depth look at these popular, pungent brews, from Devil’s Drool to Ultimate Insanity. The March/April 2006 Hot Sauce Issue includes an array of saucy topics — who’s making the hottest sauces, what to look for in fiery flavor, where to purchase your favorites, how to make your own sauces at home, and much more.

With a behind-the-scenes-look at hot sauce makers and a special feature on more than 110 hot sauces of different flavor profiles, this issue will help everyone find a hot sauce to please their taste buds. “Chile Pepper” editors and staff conducted a blind taste test, sorting the hot sauces into nine categories, such as fruity/sweet and triple-X hot, adding tasting notes to help consumers decide which hot sauces best fit their zesty lifestyle.
