Today we are reviewing Toad Sweat Key Lime Dessert Hot Sauce. This sauce was introduced back in 1997 and originally developed for use on ice cream and cheesecake.
Toad Sweat sauces are made by Peppered Palette which is the creation of Todd Guiton. He started out making habanero cheesecakes and zesty cheese spreads for friends and those same friends encouraged him to share his products with the rest of the world.
From the label, the ingredients are Evaporated Can Juice, Key Lime Juice, Water, Habanero Pepper, Vanilla Extract, Cocoa, and Spices. 5 FL oz. Certified Vegan.
When you first open this sauce, the smell is kind of fruity. The color is dark red and somewhat thin. On first taste, you will get sweetness followed by some mild heat on the back end. On a scale of 10 this hot sauce is probably a 2.5 to 3.5
In addition to using on ice cream of cheesecake, Toad Sweat Key Lime would pair nicely on fresh fruit, or using as a marinade or on grilling meats.
