Fuego Box May 2016 box

What a box of hot sauce and one of them was all hot!  Fuego Box is a monthly hot sauce subscription box that brings the heat without being extreme, focusing instead on the best flavors (while still of course being hot – just without added heat extracts and the like).  They search out the best flavors to go with every type of food and discover new artisan hot sauce makers to bring to your door. Your first monthly box will be an introductory box (see our review of the Fuego Box intro box), with a tasting journal and two favorite hot sauces from Fuego Box. Subsequent boxes include 3 full-sized artisan-made hot sauces like this box.

Once again, I had a family dinner with my parents and 2 daughters and their children.  Before we had dinner we did a tasting of Fuego Hot Sauces.  The pictures show that we like to sample the sauces with white rice, it just works for us.
We’re not really much of a hot sauce family, didn’t grow up using it.  So we can truly sample without having any kind of bias.  We rate the sauces on a scale of 1 – 10.  Ten being the best.  We had an age range of 9-82 years.

The Bronx Greenmarket Hot Sauce. This was my personal favorite. I thought it had a little bit of a tang to it.  My 14 year old granddaughter thought the color was gross.  I did a double take when she said that and I have to admit it is kind of a muddy green color.  I gave this sauce a 9 but overall the family said it was an 8.

Isabel Street Heat Fatalii Hot Sauce. This has a caution notice of, “Very spicy!  This sauce is for the individual that has an addiction to heat.”  The second I put this even near my mouth I could smell and tell that it was very hot.  I told my youngest grandchild not to try it, it would make her cry.  We discussed the use of the word spicy.  We didn’t think of it as spicy, being with a lot of spices, we thought it didn’t have much flavor at all, just a lot of heat that lingered.  We rated this a 5; but if you’re just into heat it would rate a 9 or 9.5.

Jersey Barnfire’s Black Garlic Hot Sauce. This was the family favorite.  The family liked the tomato flavor and my mother thought it reminded her of teriyaki sauce.  We could see why this one won an award, lots of good flavor.  We rated this an 8.5.
