|Flaming Mofo Challenge at Ribslayer To Go (May 2014)|
My friend Jason Reilly grows fresh superhot pods in Hawaii. The 7 Pot Madballz is no joke.
The spicochist keeps finding a zillion snacks in the stores to review. Late July is a great organization focusing on using organic products and giving back to charity. I reviewed their Mild Green Mojo and Red Hot Mojo chips for separate reviews.
Ruffles has rolled out some deep-ridged chips. I tried the Hot Wing version for panda science.
Snyder's of Hanover has started making these Korn Kruncher snacks. Here's the chile lime version:
Yes, Lay's has a Pico de Gallo flavor in the United States. Pretty good, actually....
Want protein bars? Here's a Cookie Dough Caramel Crisp protein bar from Detour:
I've finally reviewed more hot sauces. The Habango sauce from the Arizona Spice Company has good flavor and heat.
I was quite impressed by the flavor on Dave's Crazy Caribbean hot sauce. In the past, I viewed Dave's as a company that produced superhot extract sauces -- and possessing that horrible, metallic flavor. I'm happy to see that they also sell all-natural, flavorful sauces.
Finn River made a habanero cider. Absolute must-try if you can find it. I think it was a limited-time flavor, but I hope it's still out there.
On May 3, 2014, I went back to Ribslayer To Go to take on the Flaming Mofo Challenge for the third time. I had defeated the challenge the other two times, when the flaming relish was much milder.
The challenge includes a pulled pork and brisket sandwich, topped with a "flaming relish" of habanero puree, superhot chile powder blend, and 4 million Scoville pepper extract. You have to finish the sandwich, chips, pickle, and cole slaw in 10 minutes. I wasn't looking to break the house record (a ridiculous 2:13), but still wanted to officially beat the 10-minute limit anyway.
The place has great food. However, one probably wouldn't want to have this as their first experience here.
More stupidity scheduled for this summer! Stay tuned.
