Fuego Box is a monthly hot sauce subscription box that brings the heat without being extreme, focusing instead on the 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.
Fuego Box has pretty cool packaging that is efficiently and specifically designed for shipping sauce and is in a cushioned pack.
The card on the inside of the box has a bold Fuego logo, in case you missed it on the lid.
The information card gives the details on each product – the flavors, the peppers, and where it was crafted. The card also gives food pairings for each sauce. I thought this selection was awesome — each sauce had a distinct flavor, but each could work for many similar dishes.
Everything in our box this month!
Volcanic Pepper Aleppo Pepper Sauce – $5.99. The Aleppo pepper originates from the Middle East and gives this sauce an interesting flavor. This isn’t the hottest sauce out there but has enough kick to add to your meal. I am looking forward to cooking with it. The card suggested mixing it with hamburger meat before cooking it which I think sounds like a tasty idea.
Butterly Bakery Cilantro Onion – $6.00. This was not my favorite sauce. It had a more vinegar flavor than anything else. I would imagine it would taste better with more of a food dish. It would probably make an excellent chicken marinade.
Bravado Spice Crimson Hot Sauce – $5.99. This was easily my favorite of the three sauces. I think this would be a nice peppery sauce for fried chicken, maybe even a wing sauce. I think it would be delicious on top of pulled pork as well.
This is new this month! This little card has $5 worth of savings for club members. It’s on the other side of this card. Fuego Box brings awesome sauces and even helps you save money. What more can you ask for?
Fuego Box remains one of the best ways have excellent sauces delivered to your home. The price is on par with specialty shops and vendors (the only other place you’d find this variety of high-grade sauce).
