“Just a note to say thank you for creating such a fresh and natural hot sauce. I was surprised at the richness the Devil’s Tongue and Red Ghost Pepper hot sauces brought out in my food. I’m looking forward to trying some of the other choices.”  –Audrey

“Colette’s hot sauces are absolutely DELICIOUS! They are incredibly versatile and spruce up so many different types of dishes. I’ve used them on a variety of dishes, including: pastas, tacos (ghost pepper on my fish tacos are a favorite!), chilis, and salsas. As someone who loves her hot sauces and the quality of it, I can honestly say that it continues to spruce up and complement the flavors of my my dishes daily. Go ahead and taste it on it’s own too — its so fresh and pickled just perfectly!   –Tina

“Here is why we love it –the Dragon’s Tongue packs a hot hit without overwhelming the delicious smokey pepper flavor. Great for tacos and chili.”  –Mike
