When it comes to hot sauce, one man's thermonuclear thump is another man's tepid tingle. The point being, everyone's taste buds are different. And even if you've got an asbestos tongue, there are times when you might fancy turning down the heat. But why buy ten types of hot sauce when you can vary the kick with Dave's Gourmet Adjustable Heat Hot Sauce. (Try saying that with a sausage in your mouth).
As its somewhat long-winded name suggests, this ingenious chilli sauce is adjustable. Simply twist the nozzle and the concoction changes from slightly spicy to omigod-call-the-fire-brigade-me-gob's-exploding fiery.
This is thanks to an innovative pump spray that mixes the sauce from the bottle's two compartments in varying proportions. Twist the pump all the way and you get scorching sauce, turn it down and a dash of not-so-hot sauce is introduced into the mix.
Imported from the US of A, Dave's Gourmet Adjustable Heat Hot Sauce is causing quite a stir in the States and has already been featured on The Today Show and in Time Magazine. It's even won awards in the chilli press (course there's one). Hardly surprising, because as well as being incredibly versatile the pump spray dispenses the tasty sauce evenly over your grub.
Here at Firebox we like to grade hot sauce according to the faces it causes our testers to pull. And believe us, this stuff ranges from 'Kenneth Williams getting into a hot bath' to 'the Hulk changing a tyre'. Crank it to the max and we're talking 'him with the long tongue out of Kiss doing a particularly fiddly solo'. Aargh!
Ideal for hot heads, barbecue buffs and indecisive spice fans, Dave's Gourmet Adjustable Heat Hot Sauce is just the ticket for anyone who likes to fiddle with the ferocity of their sauce. So get ordering. This one goes to eleven!

How hot on the Scoville scale is this? Kathleen, Larbert, Scotland - 30th May 2011
Firebox says: Approximately 180K-200K.
Does any one know whether the bottle could be reused again so you can then put your own sauces in afterwards?
Thanks. Ed, Newcastle - 30th November 2010
Firebox says: You could give it a go but we wouldn't advise it as it may be a bit tricky!
This is great but mine is a different shape and looks like a can of spray paint. Charlie Seaman, Horley - 19th November 2010
GOD DAMN! whilst my mate started at 1, I didnt read the side and I started at 'Really Hot' And I tell you summit...OUCH! Its still stinging now, and I sprayed 5 hours ago! Ok, So we tried it neat straight from the bottle...and gee whiz I ain't doing that again! I'd definatly give it a 10/10, as its soo much fun watching your mates face screw up in agony! The delivery was fantastic, I orderd it on the saturday and it was on my door step on tuesday! it even beat the postman!! The Sweets that were put inside were very nice too! I'm looking for something else to buy to kill my mate! Cheers for the chuckle firebox!! James Hodges, Taunton Somerset, UK - 17th October 2006
