Calavera hot sauce review by Ragnar Snedeker

Today’s review is going to be of Calavera hot sauce by Cajohns Fiery Foods. I found this sauce due to pure curiosity. As far as the flavor, I found it to be very much to my liking. Something I like about this sauce is that it has no pepper extract. Just pure ingredients to provide flavor and heat.  The heat is a medium level heat by my standards.

    Diane, it has enough heat to be noticeable. However, the flavor is quite good. As I said, I would describe the heat as medium level. There is enough spice to notice, however, not so hot that I would be unable to enjoy it.

    Diane, I like the flavor of this sauce. The heat is not as intense as some of the other sauces I have tasted and reviewed. Having said that, this sauce has a great flavor to it. This could be used on any meats and would probably add a decent amount of heat.

    In Thailand, where I now live, there is enough ‘heat’ in most food that only the brave and stupid add hot sauce to the flame.

    Lovely pix, btw.

    ST, if by stupid you mean that people overdo it with spicy foods, any person whose tolerance for spicy foods is high could be seen as being stupid. Just my thoughts.

      No, I mean people (mainly tourists) who do not understand the food is spicy enough from the kitchen and doesn’t need more ‘heat.’ They end up making their meal so spicy that they cannot even finish it. I call that stupid.

      BTW, thanks for responding to my initial comment.

        America On Coffee, the only similarity is in the name. Otherwise, there is no commonality. Gottfried, it is purely coincidental that the name is similar.

    America On Coffee, there is no relationship there. The only commonality is the name.

    Koolaidmoms, America On Coffee, ST and Diane, the flavor of this sauce is quite pleasant, as well as the spice factor. This sauce has a decent level of heat. It is my personal belief that the flavor and heat work quite well together. When I first tasted it, the spice factor became quite evident. Not painfully spicy, however, just enough to be aware of it.

    Sandhya, this sauce does have a decent level of heat to it. Not so hot that I would be unable to enjoy it, however, just enough to be noticeable.

    Saania Sparkle, Diane, Sandhya, Koolaidmoms, ST and America On Coffee, what I like most about this sauce is its flavor, its heat, as well as the fact that it has no pepper extract in it. The heat is not too intense. Just enough to be noticeable. Personally, I could use this sauce on any meats and really enjoy it.

    Happy Orbits, I have a pretty high tolerance to hot sauces and spicy foods. When my body decides that it has had enough, I do not argue with it.

    Hey Ragnar…I haven’t had a chance to try any of the hot sauces that you’ve reviewed. However, I’ve made note of some of these + will check with my wife on ordering some. Currently, we use the “Cholula” brand of hot sauce + truly enjoy it. Take Care!


    • ragnarsbhut · May 18

      Perry Casilio, some of the hot sauces I have reviewed have been spicier than other sauces. Be sure to look them over and you can tell me what you find to be most appealing.
