Review:
The appearance of this jerky made my mouth water. It looks like a normal piece of brown jerky; but if you observe it closely, it looks like it is covered in seasoning.

The jerky smelled of chili pepper, beef and teriyaki sauce. It felt like a “normal” piece of jerky – hard, yet tender. It tasted in a way that caused me to want more of it. It tasted like a piece of teriyaki jerky with some brown sugar.

I would give this a 1 out of 5 for the heat level. It makes of big burst of heat at first which goes away over time. To me, it didn’t seem hot. To my dad, he told me it was really hot. Overall, I would give this a 4.5 out of 5. I love jerky, but the only difference I can see between this and normal jerky is the heat and the aroma.

Review of Heartbreaking Dawns Strawberry Trail Preserves with Scorpion Peppers

Today I am reviewing Heartbreaking Dawns’s Strawberry Trail Preserves which I had asked Johnny McLaughlin to review during the North Market Show back sometime in February.

Its ingredients are strawberries, sugar, cranberries, crystallized ginger, trinidad moruga scorpion peppers, vinegar, garlic, mustard powder, and red pepper.

I would give the Strawberry Trail Preserves a 7 out of 10 for it’s heat level and I would give this product a 5 out of 5 for its overall level for taste. The trail preserves is a reddish color. It’s both spicy and strawberry-smelling. It’s kind of thin and runny for a jelly, and somewhat chunky. It is very hot and strawberry tasting. This sauce is really good on biscuits, rolls, and other things related.

Lucky Dog Mild (Green) Hot Sauce

The first sauce I will now talk about is the Lucky Dog Mild Fire-Roasted Pepper Sauce.

Its ingredients are distilled vinegar, onions, roasted chile peppers, roasted garlic, water, carrot juice, chile peppers, sea salt, sugar, carrots, lime juice from concentrate, and dried chile peppers.

This sauce is not spicy at all to me, so I would give it a 0 out of 10 for its heat.

I would give it a 5 out of 5 because of how extremely interesting and flavorful it is. If you would eat it plain it would taste as if it would go good on vegetables; yet it is also really nice on chicken or other such meats. The sauce tastes like fresh veggies like peppers and onions and is a tiny bit salty. It looks greenish, and it’s runny, thin, smooth and smells like vegetables. I love it!

Lucky Dog Medium (Red) Hot Sauce

Lucky Dog Hot Sauce

Next I will talk about the Lucky Dog Medium Fire-Roasted Pepper Sauce.

Its ingredients are apple cider vinegar, onions, roasted chile peppers, roasted garlic, water, carrot juice, chile peppers, sea salt, carrots, dried chile peppers, sugar, and lime juice from concentrate.

This sauce I would rate a 1 out of 10 for the heat level. The heat for this sauce slightly builds up and lingers for a couple minutes.

My overall rating is 4.5 out of 5. The sauce is brownish and it is thick, chunky, and smells again like vegetables. When you taste this, at first you get a giant spark of a
veggie-like flavor.

Lucky Dog Hot (Orange) Hot Sauce

Lucky Dog Hot Sauce

Next I will talk about the Lucky Dog Hot Fire-Roasted Pepper Sauce.

Its ingredients are apple cider vinegar, onions, roasted chile peppers, roasted garlic, chile peppers, water, carrot juice, sugar, dried chile peppers, sea salt, carrots, and lime juice concentrate.

I would give a 4.5 out of 10 for the heat level. The heat for this sauce also lingers.

I would give this sauce a 5 out of 5 for the overall flavor because I personally like heat, but not too much. It was a good level for me. The sauce tastes like peppers, onions and carrots like the other two Lucky Dog hot sauces. It is a brownish-red color and is chunky, thick, and has a strong veggie smell. I love this sauce on my tacos.

These are some of my favorite hot sauces. I had to break into some of my dad’s supply because I like this on everything!

Heartbreaking Dawns 1841 Ghost Pepper Sauce

1841 smells fruity and really spicy. In my opinion, I think this sauce is good for meats, like chicken or hamburgers. I also think its good, but also hot, on Mexican foods like tacos or burritos. The heat level is 7 out of 10 and is hot!

My overall rating is 4.5 out of 5 because its really hot but, it’s still delicious! 4.5 stars

Heartbreaking Dawns Fountain and Fairfax Ghost Pepper Chocolate Chip Cookie

I like desserts and snacks a lot. My dad loves to eat sweet things that are also spicy. He gave me some of his Heartbreaking Dawns Fountain and Fairfax Ghost Pepper Chocolate Chip Cookie and it is hot!

Dad told me to put this cookie in the microwave for 10 seconds to warm it up. It made the chocolate chips gooey and warm. They were delicious! The cookie got very, very hot! I could only eat half the cookie. I needed lots of milk to put out the fire! My dad had to finish the other half. But it was yummy.

This cookie would be a good cookie to play a trick on my friends or a spicy dessert when I have lots of milk. It would give it 4.0 stars
