The Hot Spot
Hot sauce is one of the only foods that seems to function just as effectively as a novelty gift as it does food. Melinda’s, a company that makes it's fiery sauces in South America, has embodied that narrative, producing hot sauces that make great gifts but never lack in flavor.
Melinda’s sauces were inspired by (perhaps even more than inspired by) Marie Sharp's Hot Sauce, which is my personal favorite hot sauce. That was all I needed to hear. I tried 10 different varieties, noting Melinda's own heat rating and ranking them from best to worst.
