Zombie Apocalpyse Sauce Review
I knew this sauce was delicious from the first time I tried it. However, I didn’t know how addicting it was until there was 1/4 of the bottle left and I instantly started to panic. This is just one of those go-to sauces that is tasty on everything.
- The amazing flavor of ghost pepper and habanero come through nicely
- Citrusy sweet tones from the mandarin oranges
- Subtle notes of garlic and vinegar
How to Use It…
- Add to tacos, pizza, chicken, rice, ok… everything really
- Mix into hummus or dip
- Use it to spice up a pasta dish (we like it with beef stroganoff.)
- Use as a sandwich spread
Ingredients: Bhut jolokia peppers, habanero peppers, carrot, mandarin orange, tomatoes, garlic, distilled white vinegar, vegetable oil, sugar, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
This sauce has it all: heat, flavor and great texture. There is a reason it has a spot on our top hot sauces of 2020!
Zombie Apocalypse Scoville & Spiciness
If you’re a long-time fan of the show Hot Ones, you may remember this sauce from Seasons 3 and 4. Zombie Apocalypse lands around 100,000 SHUs.
Heat wise, this sauce is definitely tolerable for any pepper geek. The burn comes on kindly, and it doesn’t overstay its welcome. You’ll be reaching for this whenever you need a tasty kick in the tongue.
For reference to other Torchbearer sauces, this sauce is hotter than Headless Horseradish, but not quite as spicy as Garlic Reaper.
Zombie Apocalypse Consistency
This sauce does require some light tapping from the bottle. (Make sure you give it a good shake before opening!) We find the consistency perfect for dipping and mixing. If a little extra pours out from the bottle, that’s quite alright, it won’t go to waste.
