Review: Red Rectum & Red Rectum Revenge Hot Sauce

Red Rectum Hot Sauces

Red Rectum Hot Sauce
This wasn’t very good. Even from a gimmick sauce point of view. In fact it was pretty bad on quite a few levels.

Just on first sight alone you know you are getting what you pay for. Bad label, bad graphics, not a very appealing looking sauce inside and stupid name. How many freaking sauces do we need that incorporate some type of anal destruction in its name? It’s been done. It was funny at first…give it up. If your target market are 14 year olds trying to piss off their parents then you have succeeded. But don’t quit the day job cause you aren’t going to get very far.

For the field test this isn’t getting more than some flat bread. Doesn’t matter what you put it on it isn’t very good.

Ingredients: Red Habanero Peppers, carrots, Scotch bonnet peppers, onions, vinegar, salt, lemon juice, acetic acid, citric acid, garlic, ascorbic acid and xanthan gum.

You add this to any dish it will just ruin in it. Give this to a friend and they will punch you in the throat.

I vented most of my anger on the Eat Shit and Die sauce. This one won’t get any more of my time.

Packaging 2/10 – Dumb, Stupid, poorly drawn and childish
Aroma 3/10 – Not very Appealing
Appearance 3.5/10 – Boring
Taste 4/10 – Not very pleasant – seems like this was the manufacturers first attempt
Heat 4/10 – Not very noticeable

Overall 3.5/10

Red Rectum Revenge XXX Hot Sauce
Ok this one was better. It actually had some substance to it. You could taste something significant. It is by no means a good sauce. But is much better than it horrible predecessor (that is not saying much). It has the exact same recipe but with a little more heat added. That is about it. It just seemed to work a little bit better this time around. Is it worth making another sauces adding the XXX, using the exact same graphic? No.

Unless your gimmick is sauces revolving around your anus – stay clear of both of these.

Ingredients: Scotch bonnet peppers, Red Habanero Peppers, carrots, onions, vinegar, salt, lemon juice, acetic acid, citric acid, garlic, ascorbic acid and xanthan gum.

One of the best things about writing and testing these bad sauces is going back to the fridge and grabbing an old (or new) favourite.

In some sort of weird type of defense for this sauce it said it had an expiry date on the bottle of November 30, 2005. I am sure that still does not count for much.

Packaging 2/10 – awful – same crap as before
Aroma 4/10 – Better but not by much
Appearance 3.5/10 – exactly the same as the other one (they may be the same sauce – just expired at different dates)
Taste 5/10 – Better than the original
Heat 4/10 – Not much more than the orginal

Overall 4/10 – Just not worthy of a passing mark
