Flashbang hot sauce gets my first negative review to date. It starts off something like this: Oh dear God why? I do not think this should be called a hot sauce at all, it is an extract that pretends to be a hot sauce. With that in mind, one positive thing I can say about it is that if you are looking for pure heat to add to your own creations this is one of the most affordable ways to purchase capsicum as a food additive.
The ingredients in part list Carolina Reaper, Scorpion, Jolokia (Ghost), and Habanero peppers. However, the sauce itself is hotter than any of these peppers because it is made with capsicum extract and that is exactly what you taste.
Although the list of ingredients include traditional hot sauce fixings like tomato paste, vinegar, onion, and garlic, all a person can taste is hot, hot, and more hot. The ratio of capsicum extract to these other ingredients is just so high that no other flavor came threw for me.
My off the spoon review is: Hell no I am not going to eat that off the spoon. After opening the inner container, the smell was enough to warn me not to put too much of this in my body. I took one drop from an eye dropper and put the bottle down. It was just that hot.
Interestingly enough, it seems the sauce may have recently sent a man to the hospital. Evidently, a tourist was vising the Pepper Palace, sampled Flashbang hot sauce and succumb to seizure. Although he seems to believe it was flashbang hot sauce that triggered the seizure he also credits it with saving his life. After being rushed to the hospital, doctors found a potentially fatal medical condition which was later addressed.
