Keep Calm and Pour On More Hot Sauce, in 3 Flavors!
That classic piece of British advice, along with the iconic crown and simple bold lettering, is wildly popular these days, appearing on everything from t-shirts to coffee cups, and often replacing the last two words with a pithy phrase like "drink more beer" instead of the original "carry on."
It was only a matter of time before someone produced a line of hot sauce capitalizing on the "Keep Calm and Carry On" craze.
And once we found it, of course we had to add those new hot sauces to the Carolina Sauce online store.
Meet the Keep Calm and Pour On More Hot Sauce family!
The first of this family is Keep Calm and Pour More Cayenne On Hot Sauce. This is a classic Louisiana style cayenne pepper sauce, made from pureed aged red chilies in a savory vinegar base. This is a straightforward, honest hot sauce for purists, with true cayenne pepper flavor and solid medium heat that's typical of this kind of all-purpose hot sauce. In addition to its suitability as an everyday table sauce for adding zip to any meal without masking a food's flavor, this cayenne sauce is a wise choice for cooking applications anytime you want to add a little heat, or you're following a recipe that lists "hot sauce" as an ingredient.
If you prefer the earthy, dark smokiness of chipotle, along with its higher heat intensity, Keep Calm and Pour More Chipotle On Hot Sauce is for you. Made in the Mexican tradition, this hot sauce begins with smoked red jalapeno peppers and blends them with vinegar and savory ingredients including onion and garlic, for a robust and complex richness with potent peppery heat. It's fantastic with any kind of Mexican, Tex-Mex or Southwestern recipe or food, from simple nachos or salsa to enchiladas, burritos, chili, huevos rancheros, quesadillas, rice & beans, and even non-Mexican favorites like pizza, pork chops and burgers. Splash some on scrambled eggs, french fries or a chunk of homemade cornbread fresh from the oven.
Keep Calm and Pour More Habanero On Hot Sauce. This one is a Caribbean-style hot sauce, made from tropical habanero peppers in a tangy vinegar-carrot base with a splash of lime juice to highlight the naturally bright, almost-fruity flavor notes of ripe habanero peppers. This is also the hottest of the three "Keep Calm and Carry On" hot sauces, with searing habanero heat that is not for the tender-tongued or those with sensitive palates. Like the cayenne version, the habanero hot sauce is an excellent all-purpose, everyday hot sauce for the table and the kitchen, assuming you can handle the heat. Don't worry, it's not off-the-scale hot like Dave's Insanity or other crazy ultra-hot sauces. But it's definitely more intense than your typical supermarket-variety hot sauce.
All three flavors of Keep Calm and Pour On More Hot Sauce are currently on sale, and they're great as Christmas gifts or Hanukkah gifts for Anglophiles who enjoy spicy foods.
