Monthly Pepper Box ~ A SPICY Review!
My husband Sam (I refer to him often as “hubs” in my posts) is a Hot Sauce Lover. I had to capitalize his title so you can understand his love of the sweat that comes from a good hot sauce, haha. When I got the opportunity from Monthly Pepper Box to try and review a trio of hot sauces, I knew this would be a great way to suck hubs into my world here 😉
As you can see from the photo, those are NOT my hands, but like I said hubs was pretty excited to get into the Monthly Pepper Box when it arrived. So after he dove into the box, I casually mentioned that it was good timing, because we were having Tacos & Yellow Rice that night! Once dinner time came, we both tried out the Captain Assjack’s Minorcan Gold Citrus-Dital Mild Hot Sauce. I loved it, as kind of a wuss when it comes to hot sauces I appreciated the mild spice and the nice citrus tang it gave to the yellow rice – which by itself can be a little boring, but this hot sauce really perked it up! Sam tried it on his tacos and said it was good, but he wasn’t sweating so that was his cue to step it up LOL!! I swear, he cracks me up.
I will wholeheartedly admit that I was not going NEAR the Captain Assjack’s Minorcan Ghost Citrus-Dital Ghost Pepper Sauce *runs away & hides* but Sam was ready and willing and he LOVED it. He was sweating just a bit, but in his words “just enough” ha! He used a quarter of the bottle in one meal, so obviously that one was a hit in our house. I did just give it a sniff though, and it also has a nice citrus zing to it like its mild companion. Ghost peppers are quite high up there on the Scollville Scale (the measurement scale they use to gauge spiciness of various peppers) so this one isn’t for the faint of heart, but it will a unique kick to any dish if you’re up for the challenge 😉
Now unfortunately this last one, Flamingo Fire, I just received in the mail today as a replacement for the same bottle sent in my original shipment. I guess there was a small mix-up and a slightly expired batch of this one variety were shipped to some people, including myself. Monthly Pepper Box has amazing customer service though, because they reached out to me to advise me before we had really consumed it (I think Sam tested a little on his finger, no harm done lol) and remedied the situation in a quick and professional manner. I highly appreciate that in a company. I look forward to getting to try this sauce, the bottle’s ingredients have my palate excited! (garlic, salt, peppers, sugar, and spices, OH MY!!)
Thanks from my family to yours, Monthly Pepper Box, for allowing us to test these fun and unique sauces that are new favorites of my hot-sauce-loving-husband and also a new favorite of mine as an addition to dishes like cold pasta and potato salad, macaroni and cheese and to marinades to give a new spin on some of my old go-to’s!
