Dave’s Gourmet Original Insanity Hot Sauce

Dave a.k.a the “Spice Meister” calls his Daves’s Gourmet Insanity Hot Sauce “the original hottest sauce in the universe.” In 1993 Dave went to the National Fiery-Foods Show where his product was banned. According to Dave DeWitt, who produces the National Fiery-Food & Barbecue Show (as it’s now called), “Insanity Sauce was just too hot for the normal method of tasting–getting a dollop on a cracker or tortilla. So we eventually had to come up with a method to allow the tasting of super-hot sauces, and there are now many of them to be sampled. There are no problems today.” The method was to allow tasting only on the end of a toothpick.

And thus Dave’s Gourmet Insanity Hot Sauce was responsible for spawning the ultra-hot hot sauce craze. Over the years, this sauce has developed a near-fanatical (insane, perhaps?) following, and is often used as the benchmark for serious chili-heads. Some go as far as saying that if you haven’t tried Dave’s Insanity Hot Sauce, you’re not really a chili-head.

    Not good. Cowboy up and get yourself the ghost pepper sauce instead. Yes ghost pepper is hotter but tastes miles better.
