Iguano Radioactive Atomic Hot Sauce Review

Iguano Radioactive Atomic Hot Sauce Review

Figured I'd give this old time sauce another try. Seems like you see this stuff darn near everywhere but I never really gave it a decent chance...and now I'm glad I did!

This weekend we decided on take out pizza as this would be the best way to give this sauce the attention it deserves. Pizza came and I put a few teaspoons worth on one slice. Why not just get the heat over and done with right? Nice surprise was not a huge amount of heat...at least not right away. After putting a half bottle worth on the pizza slices I had in my plate my nose started running and the heat came on fast. Not that hiccupping, can't breathe kind of hot, but rather a gradual nice heat. I added another part bottle to a bowl of seafood chowder my wife made up (thanks honey!). Same heat, which I thought strange because soups seem to bring out the heat in sauces). And there it stayed....an 8/10 heat.

First tastes I noticed were tart and salty. This is a vinegar based sauce and is tart and acidic. Not in a bad way by any means, just tart is all. Seems like a large salt content is present...enough that you can taste it, which made me thirsty but longing for more. The three pepper blend is tangy! Could have sworn I tasted Scotch Bonnet but the ingredients say otherwise...almost a sweet aftertaste. 7/10 taste.

Would I buy it again? Yes. Because of that tangy-tart taste that makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

Overall rating: 7.5/10
