Review: There is a lot to admire and enjoy with this product from Cobra Chilli. The initial taste test from the teaspoon made my pupils dilate as there was certainly a bit of a heat, thanks to the trusty habanero! But then a lovely sweet flavour shone through. The flavour was coupled by a beautiful, almost creamy like texture, which was just superb. It is no wonder that Cobra Chilli took out the entire Hot Wing category in the Mr Chilli Awards in 2016. This particular sauce received 2nd place behind the mild version.
The aspect of this sauce that I really appreciated was that the heat reached a ceiling in my mouth. Rather than compounding in heat with each mouthful, it levelled off. I was able to enjoy my meal and not have to have a break to reach for the ‘hanky’ to pat my forehead down. I was able to enjoy my meal, soak up the goodness and keep eating. I even added more sauce because it was so tasty.
I recommend giving it a try. It is a little different and although I didn’t have it with wings, I’m sure it would have been even more enjoyable if I had.
For flavour give this sauce an 8/10 and for heat I give it a 7/10. It’s a very tasty sauce indeed!
