Do you value flavor more than heat? Then you’ll love Ghost Scream Ghost Truffle Hot Sauce. Ghost Truffle Hot Sauce is full of savory spices and fresh ingredients, including black truffles! This gourmet and specialty hot can be considered a black truffle hot sauce since one of the main ingredients is black truffles which are part of the umami category of taste. The black truffle, or "umami" taste, can be thought of as an earthy, bold, and bright flavor.
So, what are black truffles? Well, they’re a special fungus like mushrooms that grow between Hazelnut trees in France. While we just use a bit for their flavor, truffles are typically considered part of a special savory taste category called umami. They are common in certain types of gourmet cooking, which is why they’re often deemed a delicacy and other parts of the world.
And, of course, we add our signature fresh Ghost Peppers for a boost of heat, too. If you’re looking for an estimate on the heat scale, we would give it a six or seven out of ten; not spicy enough to cause panic, but still super flavorful.
There are a ton of different ways you can enjoy our truffle hot sauce. Add it to fries or chicken sandwiches with garlic aioli for a mouthwatering treat. We also really love it with steak, tacos, burgers, and pizza. Are you looking to spice up your pasta sauces? The added garlic and olive oil in this gourmet hot sauce make it ideal for that, too.
Full Ingredient List: Red Wine Vinegar, Olive Oil, Roasted Onions, Water, Roasted Red Bell Peppers, Fresh Garlic, Fresh Ghost Peppers, Salt, Fresh Black Truffles, Truffle Essence, Spices and Xanthan Gum.
Absolutely love this flavor
The heat is comparable to the original Ghost Scream, but add truffles! It's definitely got a place in certain items but it can be overbearing on others. I usually drown enchiladas in the original, and I used the Ghost Truffle and it was a little bit too much truffle. I make salsa and add the Ghost Truffle and it's amazing! Definitely worth checking out!
