Fuego Box - The best craft hot sauces you've never heard of
Hot sauce I think is one of those things that depending on who you are depends on what you consider to be just a little hot, or burn your mouth hot. I'm one that's a little more sensitive when it comes to hot sauces so I always have my husband test them out before I even think about giving them a shot. He knows what my limits are so he's able to judge for me what I will be able to handle. He on the other hand has the motto "the hotter the better". In his opinion if it doesn't make his eyes water and mouth burn it's not hot enough. I've actually witnessed him in tears at the dinner table from eating hot sauce on his food claiming it wasn't hot enough..to me that's just plain craziness.
When I found information on the Fuego Box online I knew it was going to be a perfect fit in my house and had to check it out to see. And of course as I expected I was right. My husband couldn't get his hands on the bottles fast enough when they arrived. He immediately was turning each of them over and reading the ingredients to see which one to try first. From there it was like a ritual each night at dinner until he had been through them all....guess that answered my question as to if he liked them or not. Now he's asking me when I'm going to set him up on a subscription plan so he can try some more because he's become somewhat addicted to trying all of the different and unique flavor combinations. Fuego sauces aren't like most because they aren't super burn your mouth hot, but instead they have unique flavor combinations that leave you wanting more.
Fuego Box was created by a guy who went down the hot sauce rabbit hole . It started with an early Tapatío obsession and advanced with the likes of Cholula, Crystal, and Sriracha. After that, things really got crazy... bhut jolokia and african fatalii peppers; locally harvested, hand-bottled hot sauces; and unique and delicious flavors that go with just about every kind of food.
In a nutshell, Fuego Box wants to bring emerging hot sauces that you've probably never heard of to your hot sauce shelf (you have one, right?). No need for you to go down the hot sauce rabbit hole; we already took the trip and came back with some damn fine sauces. We always focus on flavor over 'ass-burning heat' and avoid gimmicky hot sauces like the plague. So go ahead, place an order and get ready for the world's best hot sauces to come a-knockin'!
The nice thing about their subscription box service is that you control how many bottles of sauce you'll receive and how often. You can get one or three bottles, and you can get them monthly or quarterly. This is nice for those that may use them more often than others. I know in my house we go through quite a bit of hot sauce. My husband tends to put it on EVERYTHING! He even put it on his ice cream just to see what it would taste like. I honestly thought he was crazy, but he said it really didn't taste too bad...I'll take his word for it.
