    My son has a Korean friend who scoffs at our hot sauce, so I got some of this stuff with him in mind.

    When it arrived, I went to try some on a burrito. The sauce wouldn’t come out of the bottle at first, so I shook harder (expecting it to have a very narrow neck like, say, a Tabasco bottle); about a tablespoon flowed out onto my burrito. I tentatively dipped my finger into the sauce and tasted it–it tasted great, and not too hot. I rolled up my burrito and took a bite. Suddenly the heat level started soaring. That’s a burn that grows and grows. I was literally in pain: nose running, eyes tearing, ears glowing, face pouring sweat. I drank milk; I ate peanut butter; I ate sugar; but mostly I just suffered and waited for the pain to go away.

    Shortly after the pain began diminishing in my mouth, I was able to eat a (different) burrito before my stomach started hurting. A couple of hours later I had a couple of bouts of vomiting–culminating in some bright red blood coming up.

    When my son’s friend visits, I’ll warn him and only let him put one drop in his dish to start.

    I work at a BBQ place and we had the option to order from this company! I love hot Hot food, when we got the order the first thing i done was take the cap off and poured a lil in my hand and licked it!HUGE MISTAKE!!! So I thought that it would be great in my own sauce…. a few days later after a lil fun with some friends…. This guy walks in and tells me that he wants the hottest BBQ sandwich that i can make him… i warned him that it was ”off the scale hot” he told me that he was a man and he could take it. I went to the kitchen and put about 5 drops on his sandwich{ was too funny}. he took the first bite and laughted at me and told me that it was not hot at all that i was just a pansy!!! the second bite i was the one laughing he called the police on me and told them that i was trying to kill him!!!!! way to funny

    Best tasting sauce over 100,000 I’ve ever had. I had some wings just covered in this stuff the other day. It was a struggle, but was well worth it. This is the upper limit of what I would use as a sauce on its own because of the heat and the fact that I don’t think anyone can make a sauce hotter than this that would taste decent. A definate for the cocky girl who thinks she can handle hot stuff that you want to make cry.

    Do you long time!

    I just got my order from Firegirl and had to bust open the 357 first. I took some straight (off of a piece of bamboo). I was surprised at how sweet this stuff is. The heat was not surprising; even though I have never had any other sauce this hot, reading the other reviews prepared me sufficiently. It’s fifteen minutes later now, and the heat is leaving my mouth, but now my neck is sweating in a way that I wouldn’t have guessed.

    This stuff is not very tasty straight (too sweet). It will make a good addition to salsa, though.

    Tried a few drops in sauce and the flavor of this stuff ruined the sauce. Does give a nice burn but the flavor really turned me off. Try Satans Blood, in moderation, for a much better flavor.

    My family always likes spicy foods so I bought Mad Dog 357 for my folks. We each put about 1/4 tsp on each of our dinner plates and we quickly realized we couldn’t eat any more than one mouthful of the dinner, even though we each only put a micro drop of Mad Dog on the consumed portion. So, I dumped all of our dinner off the plates into the garbage and washed the dishes in the sink. Well, the steam from the hot water vaporized the tiny amount of MD357 and I got it into my sinus. OUCH! I felt like I had just been pepper sprayed!!! It was impossible to stop coughing and my eyes teared up for about 5 minutes. Now I just use this stuff to repel deer and other pests from my garden. Whew!

    Seriously, all these people who are saying this sauce is too mild are full of crap! This stuff is intense!

    I took the Mad Dog Challenge in Wildwood, NJ, where you had to lick a toothpick dropful and stand there for 60 seconds without opening your mouth. Well, being the chilihead I am I won, but not without intense pain, swelled lips and the right side of my face going numb.

    Oh, and it’s delicious. This is now my favorite hot sauce. It’s not super-mega hot like some of these capsicum extracts (which aren’t sauces) that may as well be made for medicinal prescriptions, this is a true sauce. Highly recommended!

    I wasn’t expecting a great tasting sauce when I bought this, but I was surprised. It has a nice sweet flavor. It is hot. Damn hot. But not unimaginably hot. I haven’t had Dave’s Insanity Sauce in a while, but it didn’t seem too much hotter than that.

    Oh, and it made my insides burn. That was a new experience. It felt like sun burn on my insides and left me with a mad case of bipolar constipation/diarrhea.

    Let me just say that it felt as if I had given a $100 rim-job to satan. My tongue was on FIRE! It’s good stuff. It’s a slow burn, so you get a good chance to taste the sauce before it feels like you have swallowed gasoline. Get some today!

    I like hot food . I tried a few drops on a chip and the taste was all right and then all hell broke lose.I should have just ate a live jelly fish on that chip . The sensation of my tounge going numb ,face going red and my eyes swelling up was just the begining .I felt the burn all the way thru my system. I never felt my heart beating through my ASS before. This should be FDA regulated.

    My school had some mad dog in the dining hall and since my school tends to have weak hot sauce I decided no big deal. I read the bottle, didnt know what a scoville unit was, doused my salami and took a bite. Bad idea, i chugged milk though I am partially lactose intolerant, had the chills for 2 and a half hours until lacrosse practice when i had to sprint off the field to the bathroom. Best poop of my life.

    I ordered a wing basket drenched in 357 at a well known brew pub. I told them i liked it hot, and they said, are you sure, cause this is really hot. Well, yes it WAS hot. very hot, but I ate all of the wings. All of the waitstaff slowly made their way over, and said…hey, your the guy that ate that stuff. i LOVED the 357. Im hooked now. I always was a lover of hot stuff, but this took me to a new level. !

    This is a very flavorful sauce with heat. I don’t know why they now have to call it an additive it’s great on alot of things where the flavor will compliment the food that it is placed on as a condiment.

    It is hardly the hottest but it’s not a tarball. I don’t think I’d use it in my chili because it does alter the flavor in a way I don’t like. Now a couple drops on a raw oyster or clam and you are in heaven!

    I bought this sauce a few months ago and it is great. I consider to be a chilehead that can handle some pretty hot stuff, but this is like nothing i’ve ever experienced before. 3-4 drops in my chile and i’m on cloud 9. Thanks to the Ashley company, and keep up the good work.

    If you say that this isn’t hot….no….If you say that this isn’t one of the hottest sauces you’ve ever had then you’re completely full of shit. Not only did this sauce ruin the rest of my day after eating it…It went ahead and ruined pretty much the rest of my entire weekend. I had maybe 3 drops on a tortilla chip and all hell broke loose with my mouth being the epicenter. I should’ve known though. At this Mexican restaurant in my town, they told me a story about how a bottle broke on the asphalt outside during one of the shipments and it stayed there and after about a week or so the rain and weather finally cleared it off and Mad Dog 357 had eaten the asphalt away. That’s pretty much what it did to my insides. Anyone who eats this by choice with no monetary reward is a flaming dumbass.

    WOW! This sauce is AWESOME! It has flavor aside from the rather horrendous burn it causes. It is by far the best tasting hot sauce I’ve had ever at this heat level. Add just a dab to anything and it really makes it taste good as well as adds *extreme* heat.

    The BEST!

    Very good in small amounts and brings plenty of punch to the table. Great in any application, especially in winter!! One of my friends tried a couple drops today and almost puked…he’s a bit of a wuss, but it goes to show what this will do to the average person. Use with caution, but definitely use it.

  39. little scarlet demons bathing in it. I smeared a few drops on a cheeseburger yesterday eanticipating blueface and vomit what with all these reviews. The heat delivers nirvana in watery eyes and sniffles; the works. So far the hottest sauce I've championed

    Like Inferno with rabies, this is an off-the-chart scorcher. If anything is bothering you at all, just rub some of this on your lips and all will be forgotten. What’s all this about great flavor? Anyone attempting to try this sauce out of their own good will and not on a dare has seriously diminished taste buds to start. How can you taste anything but a wasp nest? Let’s not kid ourselves. It does have a smooth, deep-red consistency and interesting texture

    I knew this product by reputation. It lived up to it. The folks at Ashley Food Company make a series of fine products. This is another. It is intended to be hot and it won’t disappoint. I sent a bottle to a hunting buddy in Georgia. He and his couldn’t eat it. They described it as “too hot to eat”.

    It works well as a source of heat for soups, stews, jerky, chili and similar dishes. Used as a food additive, it should not send you to the hospital or proctologist. I do find it over my comfort level as a hot sauce. This sauce should be treated with caution as the label suggest. The responsible “pepper-head” should warn the innocent.

    I consider myself someone who really enjoys a good hot sauce. When I first tried this the first little taste wasn’t so bad, so I took a normal glob on the next bite. By the time I was chewing the second bite, the first bite started catching up. Beware the creep of the Habenero!!

    Anyone else that has written a review and said this isn’t hot, is full of shit. All of my friends who like the hot stuff agree, that it won’t take much of this stuff to satisy your heat craving. Also, when the burn starts to hit…use salt. The sodium takes away the burn. Good luck. And to use the famous words of Cheech, “C’mon Ice Cream!”

    This sauce is pretty damn hot!
    As a matter of fact I would say it’s in my opinion hotter and burns more than Mad Dog’s Revenge, which is surprising since Mad Dog’s Revenge claims to be 3X hotter than this.

    This sauce also tastes great.Not to mention the price is a very reasonable price.

    I reccomend this sauce very highly to any chilehead such as myself, as it’s hot as hell, tastes great, and has an awesome label.

    A very good flavor for such a hot sauce. Some of the “burn just to burn” sauces taste like tar from the capsicum extract, but this one is quite nice. If you are not an experienced chili-head, be very careful with this one, it is hot enough to send you to the hospital — almost hot enough to kill.

    The first time I tried this stuff I watched my dad take it first and his face turned red. I tried this stuff inspite of my dads warning of telling me that it was hotter then ‘Dave’s Private Reserve.’ I took a tooth pick and put alittle of this stuff, and then a few secounds later my face turned red and I actualy thought I was going to cry. Alittle while after I took it, I had sneezed and my back acted up so I took this stuff again and it made me stop thinking about the pain in my back. I caution those who try. It is very very hot!
