the Hot Spot, Hot Chinese Chili (250 ml)

produced in Sweden

Tasted 1998
A mild, fruity, sligthly sweet sauce with a taste of soy sauce, red peppers, chile pepper, plums, garlic and ginger.
This sauce is not hot, but it has a very good harmony between all included ingredients.
I prefer to spice it up with some "Pure Cap" or some other hot sauce
(which adds heat without changing the taste), to make it perfect.

the Hot Spot, Jalapeño Original (156 ml)

produced in USA

Tasted 1999
A rather mild sauce with a mellow and fruity jalapeno taste, and a hint of lime and onions.
I like this sauce for its clean jalapeno taste and its long and fruity aftertaste.
Good with most kinds of food if you don't like it really hot.

the Hot Spot, Mango & Jalapeño Glaze (415 ml)

produced in USA

Tasted 1998
A mild, fruity and rather sweet sauce with a taste of carrots, onions, mango and jalapeno.
Even if it is a glaze, it is also a vere nice (but too mild) pour over sauce.
I use to add 6 - 12 fresh sliced jalapenos to a bottle and let it rest in the refrigerator
for some days before I use it as a pour over sauce.

the Hot Spot, Mango Habanero (156 ml)

produced in USA

Tasted 1999
A rater hot, sweet sauce with a taste that is initially dominated by carrots,
followed by a swift flavour of mango before the fruity habanero flavour takes over.
One or two seconds later comes a fresh clean habanero heat.
Good with all kinds of food, but should have been labled "Carrot Habanero" and not "Mango Habanero".
One bottle = one serving.

the Hot Spot, Mesquite Smoked Chili (415 ml)

produced in USA

Tasted 1999
A mild chile sauce with a rather sweet and smoky taste of chile peppers, tomatoes, lemon, garlic and onions.
A very wellbalanced taste with good harmony between all ingredients, but too mild to my taste.
I added fresh habanero juice to this sauce and that made it perfect for all kinds of meat and poultry.

the Hot Spot, Polynesian Pepper Dip (250 ml)

produced in Sweden

Tasted 1998
A mild, sligthly sweet, fruity sauce with a fresh taste of tomatoes, chile pepper, lime, ginger and garlic.
This sauce is not hot, but it has a very good harmony between all included ingredients.
I prefer to spice it up with some "Pure Cap" or some other hot sauce
(which adds heat without changing the taste), to make it perfect.

the Hot Spot, Waikiki Papaya Chili (156 ml)

produced in USA

Tasted 1999
A sweet, mild sauce with more taste of papaya, garlic and ginger, than of chile pepper.
Still there is an almost perfect balance between all components in the taste.
The sweet, mellow fruitiness and the mild chile taste really make this a sauce for chile virgins.
Goes well with most kinds of grilled and fried food, but best with grilled seafood.
Also good on honey icecream.
