6 Reasons Gifting Hot Sauces Has Exponential Value

awesome hot sauces for you

People are paying more and more attention to hot sauces.

Just like many humble beginnings, the hot sauce trend started with a rise in popularity of what you might call "basic" hot sauces, or those that only used chilies, salt, and vinegar. Now? The sky is the limit in terms of options. You’d be amazed to know of all the artisanal hot sauces in the market that are packed with rare ingredients and loaded with flavors, catering to people’s unique tastes. 

As an example, these exotic hot sauces are all natural, made with locally grown ingredients, and based on dishes from all over the world. They are full of unique flavor combinations, like spicy original flavors and trendy fruit-infused ones – flavors that hit the spot in getting you to reminisce about the many places you’ve been and the uncharted ones in your bucket list.

They are the perfect way to give hot sauce as a gift at your own table or in a nicely wrapped package for your loved ones. They are chock-full of spices, low in sodium and don't have any added sugar.

Meaningful Gatherings

Whenever you go to gatherings with friends and family, you don’t always need to bring a bottle of wine. Sometimes bringing something like hot sauce is a better way to not only switch things up, but to also make the dining experience more enjoyable.

Isn’t it nice to have people over? To be able to come together with a good set of friends who take turns surprising each other with delicious home-cooked meals and lively evenings spent around the dinner table. If that isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.

Not Just For The Grilled Stuff

A very common misconception is that hot sauces only work best with grilled meat and in conclusion, only compatible with it. Just because your friends don't serve grilled food, keep in mind that hot sauces are much more varied than you might think. Sure, they provide a great glaze for fish, poultry and meat – before, during, and after grilling – but they have plenty of creative use cases.

For instance, you can serve unique drinks and cocktails that rely on the hot sauce in giving them a certain kick and depth of flavor. Honestly hot sauces are capable of broadening the dimensions of almost all food items, not necessarily just the savory ones. To give you an idea, the following are personal favorites of mine:

  • Sauteed Long Green Beans
  • Lechon de Carajay (Pork Belly Slabs)
  • Spinach and Shrimp Polenta
  • Stir Fried Cauliflower with Roasted Cashews
  • Spicy Shrimp
  • Buffalo Chicken Salad

The Euphoria

Hot sauce makes you feel good in the long run. Eating very spicy food can be almost painful because of the burning sensation, but we love to do seconds with them regardless because of the endorphins our bodies make when we eat hot and spicy foods. These endorphins can help you feel good in the long run.

Gives An Oomph To An Otherwise Boring Meal

A well-balanced hot sauce like the Born To Hula Habanero Ancho is a hack in terms of adding flavor and variety to healthy meals of vegetables, salads, and lean protein that would otherwise be bland and boring. If you want to make sticking to a healthy eating plan easier, the punch of a hot sauce is your adhesive to that.

Boosts Metabolism

Spicy foods can also help you lose weight in a healthy way. Studies have shown that the active ingredient in chilies and hot sauce, such as capsaicin, can hasten metabolism and help your body burn calories more quickly.

A Longer Life

The active ingredient in hot sauce, capsaicin, which comes from red chillies, can improve circulation and heart health. People are less likely to get heart disease and some types of cancer in places like Mexico, India, and China where hot and spicy food is common. Spicy foods have antioxidant, antibacterial, and even anti-cancer properties, so a regular dose of Sriracha could even help you live longer.

In Summary

You can never go wrong with gifting the special people in your life with hot sauces. If you’re having a hard time deciding where to get some good ones, start with this. Enjoy!
