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

Consistency of Zombie Apocalypse hot sauce

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.

Where To Buy Zombie Apocalypse

You can purchase Torchbearer directly for their website directly from their website or from Heat Hot Sauce Shop. You can also find this sauce on Amazon.

Overall, this sauce has become a permanent staple in our fridge. We always have a back-up bottle in our cabinet as well.
