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.

Hank’s Heat Hank Sauce – $7.95
Fuego Box changed up the description card in the past couple months and actually made it into 3 bookmark style cards. This could work well for a recipe book, especially if one of these sauces fits the dish just right. These aren’t just descriptions as they also have suggestions for what food to add the sauce to.
I had high hopes for Hank Sauce but there was really no heat and the flavor was not great. I will need to try this on something else, maybe I can cook with it.
Kerala Pepper Sauce -$7.95
The description is always nice and informative.
This one just didn’t do it for me either. I think I need to try all of these sauces with some different dishes. No heat and the flavor isn’t terrific on their own.
Riza Sauce – $7.95
I know I said it before, but I really like the separate description cards.
I thought by seeing ghost pepper on the label that I might get some heat from this sauce. That didn’t happen unfortunately and the flavor wasn’t exactly remarkable.
The box also came with a $5 off coupon!
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).
