Review: Triple Dog Dare Hot Sauce
Bottle Description: Triple Dog Dare is made with sautÃ©ed tomatillos to give a green spin on your standard hot sauce. Hotter than most, it lives up to the rather imposing name.
Ingredients: Vinegar, tomatillos, peppers, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, spices.
Packaging: Ha! A baby food jar, that’s pretty original. I really like the design on it. Cut but deadly! The only potential problem with the container is that it would be hard to pick up women when it looks like you’re eating baby food.
Appearance: Looks like a common green sauce with seeds.
Smell: I love the smell of this sauce. I think tomatillos and garlic is a potent aromatic combination. It’s warm and familiar.
Taste: A big plus to the boatload of peppers used in this sauce. The lemon and vinegar gives it a bit of tang that is entirely acceptable. The garlic and spices give the sauce a nice body.
Heat: (7.7/10) You have had green sauces before but Triple Dog Dare brings some decent heat.
Field Test: Mexican food. It works fantastically with Mexican food. That’s pretty much all you need to know.
Final Word: Maybe it’s because this sauce takes me back to every Mexican restaurant I’ve ever been to or maybe it’s the taste, but this sauce is good. It’s a good variation of the green sauce theme. It’s kind of like a Lynrd Skynard cover band. They all play Freebird but some cover bands play it better than others. Triple Dog Dare is that great cover band.
