And I have tried most of the sauces out there! I love hot sauces! I have always loved hot sauces. Not just spicy ones but the - mouth burning, eye watering, intense pain, man why did I eat that - ones! Here are some of the very hottest habanero based hot sauces you can get.

In my opinion there is not a tremendous difference in their heat levels. If you do the toothpick test you may notice a difference. In real life I use as much as I can get on a chicken wing. At that quantity they're all super hot The distinguishing feature is their taste (yea right!) I like Mad Dog and Da'Bomb the best and Possible Side Effects the least.

If it is not intense searing pain, it's not hot enough!

The only things hotter are the pure extracts.

Tell me about your favorite hot sauce!

You Must Be Mad! (9 peppers)


Mad Dog Inferno Sauce (89,500 scoville units)

Mad Dog Inferno Hot Sauce

This is one of the hotter sauces and one of my favorites. Its heat ramps up fast and lasts and lasts. Just what you want in a sauce. It is meant to be used in cooking and not to be consumed directly. Myself, I use it right out of the bottle.

Most sauces this hot have that pure extract taste. The added molasses is a nice touch. Ashley Food Company says "Raging with fire, this sauce will blow your mind. Watch out. It bites back." I agree.

Although it is rated higher than Dave's Insanity in terms of scoville units I don't think it is quite as hot. Without a doubt it is a strong competitor.

Dave's Insanity Sauce (80,000 scoville units)

Dave's Insanity sauce

Dave's Gourmet says Dave's Insanity is The Hottest Sauce in the Universe. It was the only sauce banned from hot sauce competitions for being too hot! Although it is excruciatingly hot and once was the standard by which all others were judged, Dave now has plenty of competition.

It is still one of the hottest. Not for the faint hearted! A few drops on a chip and you'll be sweating in no time. At first you don't feel its heat and may think about using more - Don't. It builds up slowly until your throat's on fire and you are left wondering why you did such a stupid thing.

Even hotter is Dave's Ultimate Insanity which will knock you out with one punch. This sauce smells like a super Habanero. WARNING: Use this product one drop at a time.
