Jealousy, turning sauce into the heat

Choking on your hot sauce fries
But it’s just the price I pay!
Hot sauce is now calling me!
Open up my eager eyes!
‘Cause I’m Mr. Hot Sauce!

Yeah, it’s that good. Hotter than Vegas, and with four tasty flavors, it’s more than we thought we’d pull off, to be honest.
Made by hand, in small batches using only the finest ingredients like aged chilis, habanero peppers, cayenne peppers, hickory-smoked sea salt, and a dash of real sin from Las Vegas to make this most fabulous hot sauce on the market.
