Satan's Spawn - Evil Hot Gummi Bears

Satan's Spawn - Evil Hot Gummi Bears

These are evil hot gummy bears, as the description on the packet reads! And they really do mean it! These cute little bears bite back!

Are you, like me, a gummy bear fan? And a chilli fan? These seem ideal! They are small, orange gummy bears with a cute and harmless appearance, as innocent as any bear shaped gummy sweet could be! They even smell innocent, with a Delicious and inviting fruity smell. However, this is all an act and they are trying to deceive you! Be warned! I immediately popped one in my mouth, naively thinking to myself “what harm can a little gummy bear really do?” – famous last thoughts! Fruity gummy bear flavour starts, but they soon bite back with heat, and oddly enough its all on the left side of my mouth! The flavour is intense and hot and completely takes you by surprise! My immediate reaction was “where is Hot Juan? He has to try these!” and he did, and they did the same thing to him! These bears have bite!

So, what do they contain I hear you ask?

Ingredients: glucose syrup, sugar, gelatine, citric acid, habanero chilli, fruit concentrate (grape, apple, apricots), flavourings, coating agent: vegetable oil, bees wax(E901).

You can really smell the fruit concentrates and you can taste them to start with too, but then the habanero kicks in and really takes over your entire mouth!

These evil but cute creatures come in bags of 250g, with a label on the front warning you about their evilness – stating it isn’t their fault, these spiteful little devils were just born bad! They can be bought at the very reasonable price of £2.99 from the hot-headz website.

Brilliant for birthdays or christmas, or taking to the cinema as a spicy sweet alternative while you enjoy your film! Or if your feeling cheeky this halloween, you could even use them as a trick treat for those annoying trick or treaters!

Ok, so asking people if they wanted to try some chilli jam, the response I got was “chilli jam???” along with a look on their face like a dog that has just been shown a card trick. They could not understand how the two would work, well it’s easy, its pure bliss in a jar, well when it’s done right and guess what folks…Habanero Gold is the sexiest jam I have had the pleasure of tasting yet.

Cambridge Chilli Farm - Habanero Gold Jam

Cambridge Chilli Farm - Habanero Gold Jam

Ingredients: Sugar, Apricots, Red Onions, Cider Vinegar, Apple Pectin, Red Pepper, Habanero chillies.

Jar kindly provided by Cambridge Chilli Farm

This deep orange jam comes in a healthy sized 220g jar, once opened its straight under the nose…hhhmmm, strong vinegar and Habanero smell instantly fill the nostrils, the consistency is like a normal jam, it looks very easy to spread, the label tells you that it will go great with bacon, all cheeses and ham.

Well, not today my friends, it’s going on some toast first of all….have I ruined my first tasting of this delicious looking jam ?… I will be honest and the answer simply is no and here is why.

It spreads perfectly, not lumpy at all, very smooth and the salt from the butter just mixes so well with the sweetness of the apricots, which is a big hit with the taste buds, oohhh there is a party going on in there, another bite…..more of the vinegar and the bite of the peppers, slight after taste of the red onions, I don’t want to finish this slice too quickly, oh, too late its gone.

The heat is only slight, a lovely tingle that is not uncomfortable in any way, my friends four year old boy had some along with his three year old brother, the four year old loved it, he smiled like a Cheshire cat, the brothers response was “mummy it’s too hot” but he still finished his food because of the sweetness it was a hit with them.

This was when we put it on some bacon sandwiches , the Cambridge Chilli Farm were spot on with this recommendation , there was silence in the room as we all tucked in, we could not get enough of it.

So please people, use your loaf, get onto www.cambridgechillifarm.co.uk and get some, its great tasting for friends and family and they will be telling their friends about this amazing jam.

Thanks for reading sauce fans.

Chilli Talent.

The Wiltshire Chilli Farm - Habanero Gold

The Wiltshire Chilli Farm - Habanero Gold

I’m a big fan of chilli jam, we have it on everything.. chips, pizza, pasta, curries, veggie kebabs ..i’ve even tried it on ice cream!

So after a trip to Wiltshire delivering plants, I stopped back at the Wiltshire chilli farm for a chat with Jamie and a mooch around his polytunnels.

I like his ethos of using only “own grown chillies” in his products. Something I feel we should all try and do. “Grow you own” always tastes better than “import your own”, although I appreciate it is not that easy.

Anyway, I managed to stock up on a rather good selection of products including this Habanero Gold chilli jam.

It is supplied in a 227g jar and I like the labelling, easy to read and very eye-catching. My one criticism would be that the words “hot jam” needs to be on the front panel of the hex jar.

Upon opening there is a definite aroma of Apricots and a hint of onion. The jam is quite thick but packed full of little chunks of onion and red pepper and of course specks of Habanero Orange chillies in the mix.

The flavour is excellent. An initial sweet taste of the apricots and peppers is soon overtaken by the Habanero, leaving quite a nice kick but not to overpower the other ingredients.

This jam leaves a fruity aftertaste and is not bitter but again not oversweet. I would guess some attempts have been made to get the flavour and balance just right. It was well worth perservering as the taste is superb.

Ingredients : Sugar, Cider Vinegar, Apricots, Red Peppers, Red Onions, Apple Pectin, Habanero Chillies.

At £3.75 a jar, it is not cheap. However you get what you pay for and this is a very good example of a proper well made chilli jam.

BACK ONCE AGAIN LIKE THE RENEGADE MASTA!!!!…..*ahem* where was I?..oh yes! Its a lazy sunday afternoon and what better way to inject some much needed enthusiasm into my day than to do a cracking hotsauce review and give it my all!!

Borrowed Image

Borrowed Image

The sauce I am reviewing today comes from a man we all know and love, mr “Chillipepperpete”, based in brighton this guy has been producing quality hot sauces for years, he also tends to win alot of awards for his sauces too! he also helps his wife Miranda out with the FFUK festival now on three times a year!! Visit www.fireyfoodsuk.co.uk for more details!

Ingredients: onion, green bell pepper, coconut, peas, broccoli, spinach, apricot, herbs, garlic, lemon, spices, naga chilli, ginger, sugar, salt.

(Review bottle kindly supplied by www.chillipepperpete.com)

“Naga Green Headhunter Sauce” as it is known is one of CPP’s range of “Headhunter” sauces which also include Red and Blue, they all seem to serve a different type of chillihead, with the red one being very sweet and hot, the blue one is as yet untested by the Chilefoundry but rest assured we do have a bottle ready! So today i’m reviewing the “Green” one, and i say that in speechmarks because its very green! Not a man to use artificial colouring it only takes one look at the ingredients list to see what CPP uses to colour this sauce, lots of green vegetables, and it really does the trick as you can see from the photograph!

The label is one of CPP’s newer labels with the new logo and design, which in my honest opinion is much more professional looking and really does the trick in this case, very colourful and a good use of greens and reds as contrasting colours!

The sauce itself is relatively smoothe in texture and smells very much like a thai curry, possibly due to the coconut in it, as Naga is quite a way down the list and with no extract to be seen i was to assume this one would’nt be that hot, was i right?? read on!!

I popped the cap and poured some of the sauce onto my tasting spoon, gave it a lil sniff then went about treating myself to a mouthful, swishing it reound i was immediately greeted with the flavour of coconut and oddly enough, peas!! it is one of the strangest flavour combinations i have come across but it works really well! and it tastes very much like a curry sauce, which after doing a bit of research it turns out this sauce contains all the ingredients for a nice goan curry base, it even says on the bottle “great green goan flavoured naga sauce” which obviously makes much more sense given the ingredients list and resulting flavour!!

The heat is more of an afternote with this sauce, thats not to say it is’nt hot but the heat in this sauce comes secondary to the extraordinary flavour given by the very diverse ingredients!!

You can buy this lovely sauce from www.chillipepperpete.com for the low price of £3.50 for 125ml of one of the best curry base’s you can buy, seriously i think this would go awesome as a base for a nice, green prawn or fish curry. So if you’re into curry and naga then go ahead and grab a bottle of this to help your next curry dish go with a bang, trust me you’ll be glad you did!!

Till next time peeps, may the sauce be with you!!
