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.
All three bottles together!
Hotter Than El Ghost Sauce – $5.99
We get started with the best of the bunch. The name Ghost Sauce lead me to believe this might be a Ghost Pepper sauce but it’s not quite that hot. It’s still pretty delicious and would taste great with many different dishes.
My second favorite sauce. It’s pretty mild but it could really help flavor lighter meats like chicken or pork. Tears of the Sun is from High River Hot Sauce which was started by the musically talented Steve Seabury.
Lazy Soul Sauce – $6.99.
This is more of a mustard sauce. It would be great on a hot dog or a hamburger that you want to kick up with some delicious flavor and a bit of spice.
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).
