Da Bomb Hot Sauce

7 04 2010

I visited my grandparents over the weekend and ate at some unique places, including a regional fast food chain you have probably never heard of. A review will be coming soon. In the meantime, I wanted to do something a bit different than the normal fast food fare.

Da Bomb – “The Final Answer” Hot Sauce

Yeah, that’s right – a hot sauce, and one of the hottest commercially available.  I originally bought a bottle of this stuff at the Maryland Renaissance festival last year for $40 (one bottle). Now you may ask, “why would you ever spend 40 dollars for a bottle of hot sauce?” Well, my answer to that is – because this stuff is three times as hot as military grade pepper spray, and I’m crazy. This hot sauce weighs in at 1,500,000 scoville units of heat – 375 times as hot as a jalapeno. You can check out  various sauces on the scoville  scale here.

To be honest, this isn’t really a hot sauce – its a food additive. One drop of this will make an entire pot of chili very hot.  The only way to taste this stuff without going to the hospital is to gently dab the end of a toothpick into it and touch it to your tongue. Prepare to burn for several hours though. The burn is so intense, I had a hard time noticing that the sauce had any flavor.

I am by no means a “hothead” (someone who collects hot sauces and loves painfully-spicy food). If anyone does consider themselves one, I pull this out and give them a taste. The reactions alone are worth $40.
