Review: Mindslayer Hot Sauce- 10 Skulls Habanero
Ingredients: Habanero Peppers, Water, Tomatoes, Sugar, Vinegar, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Salt, Onion, Garlic, Spices
Container: There’s nothing on this label that makes we actually want to consume this sauce. I think the super evil skull on the front is too comic book like. The text is bordering on hyperbole.
Read to find out why.
Appearance: Ketchup with seeds and skins.
Smell: Very sweet. Kind of like ketchup. The habanero scent is faint and the spices, garlic and onions are equally as weak.
Consistency: No complaints here. Good flow, not runny. Runs better than ketchup.
Taste: If you’ve been reading then you’ve noticed that I’ve been referencing ketchup (or catsup if you like) because this sauce tastes like habanero ketchup. When this sauce first hits your tongue there is an indescribable taste that makes you shudder. This split second taste is atrocious. I have no idea what it is. Then comes a surge of sugar and HFC syrup and finally the habanero, onion and garlic combination, which is actually quite delicious.
Heat: (6.9/10) This label is one of the few sauces that brag about its non-existent heat. I often wonder how this form of fibbing is good for the hot sauce selling community.
Field Test: Alone, this sauce is terrible but it luckily its saving grace is that it is really good with other foods. Since it is so related to ketchup I would suggest hitting up your local burger chain. Pile this stuff on. Your food will mask the initial bloodcurdling taste that you get when you have this sauce solo. It works also on white cuts of meat as well because of the sweetness. I wouldn’t waste a steak on this sauce.
Final Word: Don’t even taste this sauce, just dump it on your fries.
Overall: 7.0/10 Good ketchup. Ok hot sauce.
