New York City Hot Sauce Expo 4 of 5

Pin It New York City Hot Sauce Expo 

Deception Salsa

Deception Salsa
I love the design on the labels from Deception Salsa. They have a broad selection of heated sauces from "Girly Girl" to "I Dare You." The 5 varieties go from mild, medium, hot to wickedly hot.

Mild to Wild Pepper & Herb Co. from Fort Wayne, IN sell many hot sauces, BBQ sauces and ground chiles. Mild to Wild have a cool fire department theme on some of their products. This is appropriate since the hotter sauces seriously burn you up. Mild to Wild also make the world famous "Stupid Hot" sauce.

A & B American Style Pepper Sauce
A & B American Style Pepper Sauce was a first since we had never heard of them before. This all natural, small batch pepper sauce is carrot based and tastes really great. It was very flavorful and had a delicate balance from the carrot and pepper. Allen tried this sauce on a tortilla chip, and would be great to use with a recipe in the near future. A & B American Style Pepper Sauce is made locally in NYC and does not contain sugar. It was great meeting Brian Ballan and his staff.

Baron's International Kitchen

Baron's International Kitchen sell a vast selection of international sauces with Caribbean marinades, Caribbean hot sauce and Portuguese relish. President and Head Chef, Therese Baron from West Hurley, NY makes all these fine goods.

David Rosengarten has an impressive local line of extreme sauces. The hotter sauce bottles were accompanied by a warning sign on the table.

We saw Chip Hearn from Peppers wearing a chicken hat on his head but did not get to meet him. The Peppers table had a huge selection of hot sauce and salsas. They also had some spicy taffy, which was tasty.

Happy Beaver Hot Sauce
CaJohns have a huge line of extreme hot sauces. Allen has known about CaJohns for a few years, but it was his first time trying some of the hot sauces. Only a portion of the hot sauces were on display for tasting and buying. This is Allen's experience: I wanted to try one of CaJohns most extreme hot sauce, the Black Mamba. I have eaten extreme sauces in the last few years, but this was the hottest one ever. The Black Mamba slogan is "Get Bitten." For me, this was exactly what happened. The moment I ate this hot sauce, I started salivating and then sweating. Within 10 seconds or so, I was hiccuping like crazy. The Black Mamba sauce rates on the Scoville Pepper Scale (Heat Scale) at 6 million, making it the hottest sauce I have ever tried. 

Angry Cock Hot Sauce
CaJohns Private Reserve Apple Smoked Bourbon Chipotle Barbeque Sauce
CaJohns Bourbon Infused Chipotle Habanero Hot Sauce
To give you an idea of how hot 6 million, Scoville Scale Black Mamba is, police grade pepper spray is only 5 million on the scale. I ingested sauce hotter than police grade pepper spray. This sauce got me good. It is comical now, but it was a heat experience like never before and took about 15 minutes for the heat to wear down. Now that is capsaicin in the extreme! I was given a sticker to wear on my shirt that said "Get Bitten" Black Mamba CaJohns for surviving (barely) the sample I tried. I only saw a few others with that sticker.
