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.
DEAL: Use coupon code AMIGOS to save $10 on your first box!
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!
Freshies Green Heat Jalapeno – $6.99
We are going to start out with my favorite of the box. Freshies Green Heat Jalapeno isn’t very hot but it is incredibly tasty. The great thing about this sauce, it will be good on so many different things. Tacos, eggs and really just about anything that you want to add a little something to kick up the flavor.
Secret Aardvark Drunken Jerk – $10.29.
This was a tough one as it’s definitely not fair to just taste this sauce on its own. This will work great as a marinade and I’m really looking forward to whipping something up with this tasty sauce.
AmberFrye Mango Suave – $7.25.
Mango Suave just didn’t do it for me. It is going to put me on a mission to find the right dish to enjoy it. By itself, I wasn’t impressed but maybe a pulled pork or maybe I’ll take the suggestion from the card and try it with cream cheese and crackers.
This is new this month! This little card has $5 worth of savings for club members. 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).
