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 three bottles together.

Burns and McCoy Exitium- $9.99
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 admit, I had low expectations for this sauce as I’m not usually a fan of ginger and fruit in hot sauces generally don’t do it for me. That said, I was blown away by this sauce! It is one of the absolute best I have received in Fuego Box. It’s got really nice heat that stays with you. I think you could put this sauce on just about anything.
Hellfire Gourmet Red – $7.98
The description is always nice and informative.
This sauce was very deceptive. I read Hellfire and see that awesome looking devil face and I thought I was in for something with some heat. Maybe the picture should have been a demon yawning. It’s tasty enough but there’s not much heat.
CaJohn’s Small Batch Classic Serrano – $7.50
I know I said it before, but I really like the separate description cards.
I thought the flavor was okay with this sauce on the chip but iI’m sure it will be better on a prepared meal. There isn’t much heat despite being made with Serrano peppers.
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).
