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!
This sauce was a very pleasant surprise. It has some heat to it but not to an unbearable amount. It’s a sauce that can go on just about anything and enhances with just the right amount of flavor. The founder of Fuego Box, Mike, made this sauce and it’s clear he knows what he’s doing. It’s absolutely delicious. I had this on a cold slice of pizza and loved it.
Formosa Jalapeno Hot Sauce – $4.99.
This is a nice creamy sauce. I was instantly drawn to this sauce and was anxious to taste it. I was not disappointed. I feel like it can go on a myriad of foods and I feel like it would work well, especially tacos or sandwiches. I plan to put it on a hamburger tonight.
Bronx Greenmarket Hot Sauce (red) – $7.95.
I like this sauce as well. It’s not overly spicy but there’s enough due to the delicious serrano peppers. The sauce can go on so many different meals. I like the idea of eating it with eggs or on chicken. All three sauces were great 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).
