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.
All of the contents of the box.
The three bottles up close.
Community Gardens Small Axe Peppers – $8.99. This sauce had some nice heat at the end and it stays with you. The ginger isn’t overpowering but does give a nice flavoring.
Fuego Box has used these bookmark style description cards in the past and I’m happy to see they have returned. 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.
It tastes nice on its own but I think it will be even better on some sort of roasted beef or chicken. The suggestions on the card are nice and varying so I may check those out as well.
Seed Ranch Flavor Co. Umami Reserve Hot Sauce – $7.95. This sauce has an interesting flavor. Much like the previous sauce, the heat sneaks up on you at the end and lingers nicely.
The description is always nice and informative.
The sauce is a bit oily making it an unconventional texture. I feel like this could be delicious on a burger.
1542 Southwest Habanero Hot SauceHeartbreaking Dawns Southwest Habanero Hot Sauce – $6.95. Before tasting, I thought this would be my favorite of the bunch. It was good but it fell just a bit short of expectations. I thought that there would be a bit more heat.
I like the stories of how these sauces came to be.
This sauce is still delicious, just not number one.
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).
