Soooooooooooooo here we are just a few days from the West Dean chilli fiesta, and Gerald from The Chilli Pepper Company (www.chileseeds.co.uk)has kindly asked me to review these two new exclusive products of his that will be launched at the fiesta this coming weekend! One is a tipple and the other is another of his legendary sauces!
As you can see from the ingredients list, these two products are pretty minimal on ingredients, the “Fully Loaded” sauce comes in a lovely wavy red bottle and is affixed to a certificate of authenticity, the “Looney Juice” comes in a bulbous bottle and have a lovely pinky red hue to it and you can clearly see the capsaicin at the bottom of the bottle.
I will let the following video do the talking as i believe these two products definitely have to be experienced, rather than written about, so here you are!
There is not an awful lot to say about the products as they are both very simple in both ingredients and presentation, no silly stuff in here, just a nice pouring sauce that really gives you the flavour of the chilli, and a vodka that is stupidly hot and would do well mixed with other things, like drinks for escaped lunatics, or perhaps a hot toddy for lucifer himself?
As you saw, the sauce hit me pretty hard but perhaps due to that, the looney juice probably didn’t have its full effect on me, and due to my mouth already being aflame, i was able to handle the vodka pretty well! Don’t be fooled though, it’s damn HOT! You can buy both these products at this weekends “West Dean Chilli Fiesta” taking place in chichester.
Well there you have it my chilli padawans, another couple of quality products from the lovely folks over at the chilli pepper company, alas i am not sure on the cost of them as they haven’t been officially launched yet, i estimate around £5-£8 for each of them though, and well worth it too! Hopefully you and i shall meet at the chilli fiesta this weekend, and if not, why not?? Hehehe, well until we meet again my chilli padawans i guess this is farewell for now…may the sauce be with you..always!!
Right then guys, a little pointer for you. When you are asked to do a double review, make sure it is of a mild product. Not in the case of me and Cameron doing two product in one video for The Chilli Pepper Company www.chileseeds.co.uk. I should know better after my last experience when Ged sent me a bottle of heart throb which near killed me. But for some stupid reason I am doing two products.
So today we have got a sexy little number going by the name of ‘Bullet To The Brain’. Great design of a bullet on a keyring and the bullet is packed with a near neon powder from the Brain strain chilli. I dont think I need to tell you much about the chilli apart from its effing hot. I tried some neat a couple of days before and it was mental. And the second product is called Pure pain paste and to be frank about it the name sends shivvers down the spine. Not purely due to its name, but I know who made it and that is a lethal combo. Anyway, enough of this chatting rubbish, let’s get to the business end of the review. Take a look and see what pains have been inflicted on our poor bodies.
Well there your go. The Bullet is awesome styling and a great product to ramp up both heat and flavour to any dish really. Packs a great punch and as it is something you can take around with you anywhere I reckon its one to pick up as you ever know when you may need a quick fix. And at only £3.50 its not a lot of dollar.
But the paste????? Yes it is extremely hot but at the same time a glorious chutney style flavour and texture. I wont lie, I was a bit let down at the start as there was no heat. And when I say no heat I mean none what so ever. Well 20 seconds later I’m crying so that shut me up. Okay so Cam is not a chilli head but he thoroughly enjoyed both products and came out extremely worse for wear. Cameron just got out of camera shot quick enough before sprawling himself in pain of the flower bed and wrecking the plants with what I can only state as ‘Too much chilli syndrome’. I think you get what I mean. Not no picnic for me either and again, a £3.50 product. You can’t complain about the prices as they are very cheap for what you are getting.
Well I think I will leave there for you to ponder if your up for a dose of heat on both the hot and the extreme, but I’m sure you are.
So until next time guys, if it burns going in, it will burn coming out.
