Note: Because I get so many “food” submissions for the lifestyle section of this blog I’ve decided to start a food site. Some items which appear here may or may not be there or vice versa. That site, whose name will be announced soon, is under development! Stay tuned.
Anyone who knows me knows I’m a connoisseur of hot sauce. I must have 25 bottles of random hot sauce at home at any given time. My most recent devouring was of Florida Gold‘s “Original American” and “Salsa Picante Latin Flavor” premium habanero sauces.
Typically I don’t mind habanero based sauces but prefer the taste of other peppers like jalapenos because they’re a bit sweeter. Most habanero sauces I’ve tried have the same dark taste with mega heat and it is hard to tell them apart. Florida Gold’s sauces do not fall into that category. They have great and unique flavor, as well as the heat which you expect from habaneros.
I sampled two of the three flavors Florida Gold offers. My favorite was the Salsa Picante Latin because it was a bit more fun and flavorful but both sauces were excellent. It took me only two days to polish off both bottles between having them with tortilla chips, tacos and burritos.
Loved the sauce, but the Florida Gold web site needs a major overhaul.
Hot sauce isn’t all about heat. If it was just about heat, I’d just hit my taste buds with a blow torch. Florida Gold’s sauces bring heat, but have a unique and fun flavor which makes them stand out over other habanero sauces.
