Grim Reaper Foods has done it again. After bringing us the award-winning “Evil One” hot sauce as well as the innovative “Jekyl & Hyde” chilli sauce, a fantastic trio of chilli chocolate has been released for the pain and pleasure of our most chilli mad chocoholics customers at the Devil’s Garden.
It is not hard to see why the Grim Reaper Foods trio of chilli chocolate is fast becoming a bestseller everywhere as each of the chilli chocolate has its own particular flavour and spice level. The white chilli chocolate named “Purgatory” is just out of this world with is intense heat and interesting flavour thanks to a hint of bergamot oil swirled in it.
Grim Reaper Foods Hell Raise milk chilli chocolate is a wonderful experience of just enough spice peaking through the creaminess of the quality milk chocolate while Grim Ripper Foods Black Widow dark chilli chocolate takes you to a mysterious place where only a hint of orange essence will remind you of a world you once lived in.
Grim Reaper Foods is only just starting so we cannot wait to see what else it has in store in the coming months but in view of its trio of chilli chocolates, boy are we all in for a treat!

Chilli Pepper Pete has a knack of choosing names that will stay in people's minds which is definitely the case for his chilli pastes, especially Satan's Shit and Hotter than Hell. And spicy they are! With the beloved but feared Naga chilli pepper at the forefront, these chilli pastes burn, scorch, punch, bite and generally speaking form a small hurricane of heat but also flavour at each mouthful. And by that we mean that you should only put a small amount in your food although some advanced chilli lovers do consume them by the spoonful... those who have a living will of course!
Not as hot as Chilli Pepper Pete's Satan's Shit or Hotter than Hell, Chilli Pepper Pete's Just Scotch Bonnets and Harrisa still hold their own in the heat stake. Still much spicier than what you would find in supermarkets, Chilli Pepper Pete's Harrisa and Just Scotch Bonnets are designed to make you sweat... but also salivate thanks to their wonderful flavour, the former being made with the gorgeous cayenne chilli pepper while the latter contains well... you've guessed it, scotch bonnets!
Chilli Pepper Pete's chilli pastes are just what a good chilli paste should be: hot and tasty but most of all they have got Chilli Pepper Pete's stamp of approval (and ours!), so what more could you want?

The Devil's Garden might have gone a bit off radar in the past few weeks but that's only because our team has been working very hard night and day, 24/7, trying out new wonderful chilli products just for you.
Yes our efforts might one day be recognised and our hard lives as chilli tasters ought to ease up a bit as we climb higher and higher into chilli nirvana but for now though, our feet firmly on the ground, our tastebuds always at the ready and our stomachs craving their hourly chilli fix, no hot sauce, chilli jam or jelly, chilli chutney, chilli snack, chilli chocolate or chilli condiment have gone unnoticed and it is with panting tongues, scorched mouths and chilli sensory overload that we have been able to sift through what the market currently has to offer, the good and the bad, the tasty and the unworthy, the gorgeous and the unmentionable.
With all that build up you would think we would reveal at least one or two brand names to give you a hint of what we've been trying out lately but no, our cruelty knows no bounds it seems, but do not fret fellow chilli heads as we believe that good things always come to those who wait...

With a wealth of experience under his belt, the Chilli Pepper Pete brand is certainly famous but has thankfully not rested on its laurels over the years.
Hot sauces that made its name such as Sting in the Tail Hot Sauce (formerly known as Tasmanian Devil Hot Sauce) and Chilli Pepper Pete Liquid Fire made with no less than 20 chilli varieties created the right buzz and image from the start and as time went by Chilli Pepper Pete managed to find the perfect balance between heat and flavour.
Other now notorious chilli sauces ensued amongst which Chilli Pepper Pete Red Naga Headhunter, Chilli Pepper Pete 2012 Hot Sauce, Chilli Pepper Pete Smokin Devil, CPP Herbicide and ever so wonderful Chilli Pepper Pete Sphincter Shrinker.
Chilli Pepper Pete has a knack at choosing awesome names for its chilli products such as Dragon’s Blood or Goan to the Loo curry sauce but a brand cannot function on a “fun” factor for long and thankfully CPP definitely backed its products up thanks to not only the right attitude in the chilli world and respect that comes with it but also because of a constant will to surpass its latest chilli product.
All we have to say is: Long Live Chilli Pepper Pete!

Insanity Sauce, two words that helped make the Dave’s brand so infamous. Crowned Hottest Sauce in The World during the nineties, Dave’s Insanity Sauce became the only sauce to ever be banned from the National Fiery Food Show.
The Dave’s brand is not just about insanely hot sauces. Although you won’t find all of his sauces on the supermarket shelves, you can buy them at The Devil’s Garden. In fact, we have an array of speciality sauces from Dave’s Gourmet range that contain fresh ingredients and simply ooze unique scents and flavours. From sweet Ginger & Peach to Hurtin’ Jalapeno, there’s a huge variety of flavours to choose from. Dave’s Jammin’ Jerk, Crazy Caribbean, Hurtin’ Habanero, Scotch Bonnet, and our personal favourite, Roasted Red Pepper and Chipotle.
There is a Dave’s sauce to suit every palette. But you won’t find these speciality sauces on the supermarket shelves; it will take a visit to The Devil’s Garden if you wish to honour your pantry cupboard with their presence...

If you are looking for a varied selection of chilli sauces from a quality brand that can be trusted then look no further: Cambridge Chilli Farm is the one.
Ran entirely by a guy who seems to think that sleep is for when you're dead, Cambridge Chilli Farm is everything a chilli brand should be and more.
It would take much too long to try and describe Cambridge Chilli Farm’s products and more particularly chilli sauces such as Lemon Drop, Smokey Chipotle, Sweet Chilli Sauce and the most famous of all: Ghost Pepper 10 Hot Sauce.
So instead we'll just tell you that each of these chilli sauces has got a unique flavour with a heat level that is cleverly balanced out throughout and a lot more than pure craftsmanship is put into each one of them although that is for you to decide ultimately.
It is rare to find such a flawless chilli brand and selection of accomplished hot sauces as well as chilli chutneys so put all of your trust and support in what is still a relatively up and coming chilli producer and help it reach the heights it deserves!

Tired of the same old jam? Want something a bit different that can answer your sweet cravings as well as give you a chilli fix?
You'll be spoilt for choice with Sinful Sauces chilli spreads whether you go for the Chilli Chocolate & Hazelnut, Chilli Peanut Butter or Chilli Cashew Nut Butter.
All of a great consistency, they rival and easily surpass other popular and well established brands that have been on the market for years. The heat is just right, creeping up as you go along, leaving no corners of your mouth untamed. And as for flavour, well, it is hard to stay impartial but we would say that Sinful Sauces Chilli Peanut Butter and Chilli Cashew Nut butters are definitely one of the best chilli spreads we have ever had whilst Sinful Sauces Chilli Chocolate & Hazelnut is now taking pride of place in our cupboard although it stays out more than it stays in it's that good!
The Sinful Sauces chilli spread trilogy is perfect as a comfort food and also much more healthy than all the over-sweetened chemical supermarket poor-excuses-for-chocolate-or-nut-spreads so the important question is: what are you waiting for?
