My Take on the Sauce
Thick and spicy and delicious, I think that sums it up.  If you like RedHot in the past with the liquid drops that you typically would get, but this sauce reminded me so much of catchup but its flavor was so much better in my opinion that is. I loved being able to put these on chicken sandwiches as well burgers, and it made the meat just taste remarkable. My kids are not big into things that are too spicy, but I still had them try it and one liked it the other said it was too spicy for them. This was however good news for me!

Overall a great sauce, and one that I will be purchasing in the future!
