Melinda’s Original Habanero Extra Hot Pepper Sauce has earned itself a permanent place on my “Top Ten Hot Pepper Sauce Frauds” list. The only heat this sauce generated was the steam that came out of my ears when I realized what a colossal fraud this sauce is. I picked up this bottle at the store on Tuesday night. I’m writing this shortly after lunch on Thursday and the bottle is already half gone. No true habanero sauce should go so quickly. Tabasco sauce is hotter than this garbage.

Costa Rica should be ashamed to turn out such lame hot pepper sauce. Hell, any Midwestern state (where foods generally run the gamut between bland and tasteless) would be ashamed to turn out such a terrible product.
