I received this product free for testing purposes but the opinions are 100% my own.
My little envelope of happy mail arrived today: Herb’n Farm Hot Honey Hot Sauce. To say I was excited is a freaking understatement. I am a clinical social worker, but today I felt like a chef getting free goods in the mail and being asked to review someone’s product. My first thought was this is the most adorable bottle ever (the bottle is small read 6.4 oz for $10, and some may balk at that price as it’s about the size of a chicken leg). However, if you don’t judge a book by its cover, you don’t judge a sauce by its bottle or size. I placed a dollop on my finger and my first thought was, “This is a delicious mind fuck. It tastes sweet then beautiful blessed nightmare the heat hits you.”
To truly test this product, I needed a focus group. So, I whipped up some wings and invited a few friends over. Verdict: there wasn’t a wing left at the end of the night. The feedback was “You got all that flavor out of that little bottle?!” I did. The trick was not to marinate my meat in it. I just didn’t have enough, so it’s best used for what it is- a sauce to finish off and glaze your wings with. It makes me happy it came with a “drizzle” top. Some of the other feedback was “Herb guy nailed this”, “This product is amazing”, “Can I order online” (yes, you can) “The ratio is perfect.” Others disagreed and said, “Wish the heat would been stronger and the sweetness hit you on the back end.” To either of those, I say you could adjust your seasoning profile in the wing recipe. The end results: I would purchase this product. I think it’s a great foodie way to turn your BBQ up a notch and would make a great hostess gift. Bon Appetit
