Review: Cracker House Hot Sauce Fire

I tried and wrote the review on the medium sauce before opining this one, and although it was good on fajitas it really wasn’t my favorite, and I wasn’t overly exited about opening this one. I did open it the next day and made more fajitas with it, and I remember thinking that it definitely had noticeably more heat. I didn’t Wright a review on it then, I ate about half the bottle sampling it on other foods and every combo I tried was a miss. Today I made more fajitas and broke it out, I already knew it was good on fajitas and I couldn’t go wrong. The first flavor you taste is the peppers, not hot peppers but bell or sweet peppers. I can taste the jalapenos and I can taste the brown sugar. The sweetness in it tastes more like a sweet pepper than sugar sweetness though because the dominant flavor is peppers. The vinegar is well hid in the background, and after eating my fill of fajitas with the sauce I had a slight tingling on my lips but not really enough to say it is that hot. Overall I liked it better than the medium, but probably wont ever buy it again. It was good on fajitas but no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t find anything else to put it on that I liked. Some of my failures include eggs, pizza, mixed into a stir fry, and on a burger.

Cracker House Hot Sauce Fire

Ingredients: Tomato Concentrate made from red ripe tomatoes, fresh red and green Tomatoes, Sugar, fresh onions, distilled vinegar, green bell peppers, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, fresh datil & jalapeno peppers, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, garlic, salt, spice, black pepper, onion powder, oleo resin capsicum, and natural flavorings.

Taste: 5/10 it would be more if I liked sweet peppers more.

Smell: 4/10 it smells just like it tastes but sweeter, when you eat it, it is still sweet but not as bad as it seems like it would be from the smell.

Value: like another sauce I recently reviewed there is a 2 bottle minimum order and the price is 2 Bottles of Sauce for $12.00* Case of 12 bottles for $38.00* shipping is included. 6 dollars is about the average and I wouldn’t say it’s a bad value, but the sauce wasn’t really my favorite anyway and its not such a great price that I will buy more. 5/10

Heat: 3/10

Overall: 5/10 I have already finished off this bottle and I eventually will finish the medium also but its not something I would buy again. It’s a little to sweet for me and that’s the biggest thing holding it back, if you enjoy sweeter sauces and want to try one with a fresh pepper (mostly bell and sweet peppers) taste to it I would recommend this one to you.
