Review: Crazy Mother Puckers Hot Sauce(s)

Crazy Mother Pucker's Hot Sauces

I admit it, I have been remiss in my duties as a Hot Sauce reviewer. I am a layabout, a sloth, a human hot sauce slug! The bottles to be reviewed stack up even though I am consuming hot sauce daily and trying new bottles, the ones to be reviewed remain unopened. I keep planning to do a review, later today, no, tomorrow I will do it, but as procrastinator that I am tomorrow usually becomes tomorrow again!

The Super Bowl! A day for gluteny and slothfullness! No more perfect situation for reviewing hot sauces could be had. I made a plan and put it into motion for the Big Hot Sauce Bowl.

I have three bottles of sauce made by the same company “Crazy Mother Puckers” and during the Super Bowl, with the assistance of another Lunatic fringe Capsacian addict a triple threat review will take place!

We watched the game, we ate, we tasted and reviewed hot sauce and opinions ran like water! Here are the results:

Crazy Mother Pucker's Hot Sauces

The three sauces for review are “Crazy” Mother Pucker’s Cayenne Concoction, Fire Roasted Fusion and Groovy Garlic. The bottles, 5.7 ounce flasks are very attractive, I have looked at them often on the shelves and I like the shape, the colors, the metallic background and the pelican in various states of hot sauce induced pain. The pelican always seems to be smiling, even though he is breathing fire or has smoke coming out of his bill, much like the way we feel eating this stuff!

Crazy Mother Pucker’s Cayenne Concoction-
IngredientsHabanero Peppers, Red Wine Vinegar, White Vinegar, Molasses, Tomato Paste, Worcestershire Sauce (Distilled Vinegar, Molasses, Corn Syrup, Water, Salt, Caramel Color, Sugar, Spices, Anchovies, Natural Flavor, Tamarind), Salt, Sugar, Garlic, Cayenne Pepper, Xanthan Gum, & Sorbic Acid

First the smell test, opened up the bottle and we took a good snootfull, it smelled a little like tomato and a lot like steak sauce.

It has a smooth, dark appearance, a few seeds not too thick, but not watery like a franks or tabasco.

Straight taste test yields a little heat, a little sweetness and you can taste the worcestershire directly.

After trying this sauce straight, on tortilla chips and pizza, we decided that this sauce would be great on steak! It has a taste of a great steak sauce, a little sweet, a little spicy, hints of tomato and worcestershire. I cooked up a big London Broil the day after the game and went to town with the sauce! It was the perfect steak sauce!

Crazy Mother Pucker’s Fire Roasted Fusion –

IngredientsCrushed Tomato, Vegetable Juice (Tomato Juice, Water, Concentrated Juices of Carrots, Celery, Beets, Parsley, Lettuce, Watercress, Spinach), Salt, Asorbic Acid, Flavoring, Citric Acid, Roasted Habanero Mash (Roasted Habanero Peppers, Vinegar, Salt), Water, Onions, Roasted Garlic, Worcestershire Sauce (Distilled Vinegar, Molasses, Corn Syrup, Water, Salt, Caramel Color, Sugar, Spices, Anchovies, Natural Flavor, Tamarind), Cilantro, and Black Pepper.

The first smell was vegetables, peppers and a little smoke.

It is thick and a deep red with bits of peppers and black specks, the roasted peppers I assume.

The straight taste test yields a crazy mother puckin flavor, vegetables, spicy burnt V-8 is the only way I can describe it! There seems to be way too many flavors going on at once. We try it on some tortilla chips and try to decide what this sauce would be good on…we can’t think of anything!

Crazy Mother Pucker’s Groovy Garlic-
Ingredients Red Peppers, Distilled Vinegar, Salt, Garlic, and Xanthan Gum

The smell test – It has a distinct aroma of Vinegar and Garlic.

Poured on the plate it is a bit watery, has a pleasing bright orange color with bits of visible Garlic.

Straight taste test brings no surprises, tastes like vinegar and Garlic, light on the heat.

We tried this on Tortilla chips, Buffalo chicken tenders and Pizza, It was very good on Chicken and Pizza! This sauce has a lot of garlic flavor!
