Let me preface my questions with the following:

Later this year I will be launching a somewhat unique brand of hot sauce in a variety of flavors (5 as of this moment)

I'm asking this question on 2 different forums to get a general consensus.

First, what do you look for in a hot sauce? Heat? Flavor? How hot is too hot?

Any funky flavors you would like to see but haven't seen produced anywhere?

How often do you buy hot sauce?


Thanks in advance for your input

There is no such thing as 'Too Hot' - bring it on


Oh and I buy it every week. Taco sauce, Chilli Sauce - You name it - if it's spicy I buy it.

Heat is always important to me when it comes to hot sauce. As for flavor, it depends on what dish I am adding the hot sauce to. Some dishes I prefer just the heat to hot sauce and others I like the flavor that some hot sauces bring.

Look at my name, I'm growing vipers as we speak specifically for this purpose.

Large amounts of heat, or just a small amount for a little kick?

If there's one thing this world needs more of, it's hot sauce!

I think what most people look for is a good balance between great flavor and how much it makes you sweat. DL Jardine's Texas Champagne has been my favorite lately and I still love the old standbys like Frank's and Tabasco.

What's this stuff going to be called and where will it be available? I'd love to get my hands on some

Heat is good but balance with flavor. Gotta have flavor as you can't taste heat.

The best sauces out are fruit based IMO. Lots of flavor to draw from with the sugar and uniqueness of the fruits.

The name is going to be Mess You Up Hot Sauce. The first 2 flavors to be launched will be Viper Fang and HabaMangoNero. It is 100% organic (uncertified though since the USDA is a pain to deal with right now) and I am anticipating a launch around October.

It will be available online at first, although I have a tentative agreement with 1 local store in a big tourist town in my area (southern Wisconsin)

I usually keep two or 3 types of sauce around. I like a small amount for a little kick most of the time. Other times I like to burn the hell out of my mouth but boy do I pay for it the next day.

Mango is a natural choice with the way it tempers the heat. Any odd fruits you would like to see paired with a little heat?

I don't like to much added flavor to the sauce - I want the heat from the sauce to bring out the flavors of the food im putting it on.
Too much flavor in the sauce itself is just making it disrupt the taste of the food it's on.

My ideal sauce would only have tomato (tomato flavor goes with almost anything) and a bit of smoke (like hickory) to it.
And yeah - it shall be strong. I mean really strong.
I rather just put a few drops of it on the food to get the perfect heat, then half a bottle.

I don't know if there is a way to achieve that "lingering" heat sensation?
The best sauces don't have that direct heat sensation to them, it's more like the heat kicks in after a few seconds and then lingers on, if you know what I mean...

Hot sauce...depends for what. We stay stocked with Chalula for Mexican, Siracha for chili, and Tabasco for whatever. Brand the sauce for a specific type of food. That's my thought.

The real hot peppers tend to linger in the back of your throat, and depending on the person, durations can last for quite a while after eating it.

That kind of similar to what you prefer?

I like a little bit of a kick... something that burns for a few seconds then dies out. I always have "hot" sauce, but non of it is actually hot. I cant really stand hot hot sauce, so for me the flavor is more important. Something that adds to the flavor of the food but does not hide the taste of it, or overwhelm. BTW I am interested in trying out your sauce once you launch.

By the way - you probably should check if you are able to use the names that you suggested on your sauces.
The makers of Vicious Viper Hot Sauce might not be too happy about another Viper Hot Sauce.
