Ever since Dave's Insanity hit the market in the early 1990s, many hot sauce manufacturers have jumped into a hot sauce weapons race reminiscent of the nuclear stockpiling and development programs of the Cold War.
Hot sauce is a versatile way to add more flavor and kick to everyday foods. Because of this, it's pretty commonly used to add spice to everything from eggs, to tacos, to pizza. But what about other foods?
We love hot sauce. The heat, the flavor, the euphoric feeling you get when you get a dose of some really, really hot food. However, there's a real downside to handling peppers, hot sauces, and spicy food. We call it "the burn": the unintentional burn you get to, well, to very sensitive areas when you forget to wash your hands or didn't wash them well enough.
