A great hot sauce collection gift pack
These bottles are awesome – they look really well, um, cute. These sauces make for a great chilli head gift – and all for under a fiver. Beneath the funny names, colourful bottles and plentiful use of the word ‘ass’, lies a seriously good sauce. There is no better way to sample four great tasting sauces from those US legends South Western Foods.
Ass Kickin’ Original Hot Sauce
With 100% natural ingredients this sauce has plenty of Habanero and Serrano peppers to give it a kick like a mule.
Ass Kickin’ Cajun Hot Sauce
A rich authentic tasting cajun sauce that will add some serious heat and flavour to your Gumbo or Jambayala.
Ass Kickin’ Roasted Garlic Hot Sauce

Ass Kickin’ Wasabi Horseradish Hot Sauce
This new addition to the great tasting US hot sauce range is a revelation . This sauce has plenty of Habanero but the Wasabi takes centre stage.
CaJohn’s Puree Collection
CaJohn’s has a range of exclusive food products that now total over 150 lines – from salsas, hot sauces, barbecue sauce, rubs, spice blends, mixes and mustards make up the line. All products are natural and preservative free, carefully prepared in small batches and monitored to ensure a high level of quality and a consistent taste. Only the finest of ingredients are used.
These are not actually sauces per se, they are more like purees. They certainly make our mouth water just looking at the bottles. The colour of the purees are so vibrant and bottle design so simple to focus on the pleasure within, you know you’re in for a treat before you open them up.
And once you’re in you get fresh fruity flavour and fire with an intensity that few can match. These purees taste so fresh and pure it’s as if the chillies were picked and bottled just for you within the last 24 hours. All distinct in flavour, all different in heat level, these are essentials for anyone who takes their chillies seriously.
Packed together in a brilliant wooden crate this will make a excellent gift for any chillihead.

Beer with an actual chilli in it
The Americans are a crazy bunch. Expecially those chaps in the Arizona desert, which is home to 20 million rattlesnakes, various scattered F-16 parts and lizards the size of smoking beagles. All of it baked to a crisp 130 degrees. It’s also a place where a cold beer is pretty damned important.
For crazy Ed Chilleen, of Cave Creek, Arizona, (Population 1,328 including coyotes and cattle) beer was much too important to be trusted to outsiders. So, in 1989, he started brewing his own.
Obviously the thing to do when brewing beer is to put Serrano chillies into the beer. These are the roots of what Ed today calls “Cave Creek Chili Beer” ”
