Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Hades Hot Box
Everything that we received in our Hades Hot Box. This box is full of fantastic items that range in spiciness but that are equally tasty!
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert. This lists each of the items that we received and also the curators personal tips on how to use each, which is a really cool concept!
Let’s start off with saying that spicy honey is a perfect addition to wings (which is recommended on the insert) and this honey can serve MANY with this 13.5 ounce bottle!
Made in Brooklyn, New York this honey contains just 2 simple ingredients wildflower honey and chili peppers. It tastes rich and spicy and is a true delight!
If you’re like us, you are not into sweets first thing in the morning… in fact we crave savory the moment we get out of bed. So to get grits that are jalapeno flavored is an awesome addition to this box!
This non GMO breakfast requires no other ingredients other than the addition of water! We cannot wait to try these out – we love grits!
Okay, we have to be honest and say that when we saw this hot sauce included apricot we thought it might be a bust for us. We are happy to report however, that this sauce is both HOT and delicious! Many hot sauces are hot for hot’s sake.. this however blends the sweet flavor of apricot with the heat of the Scorpion Pepper to create something really wonderful. If you can take a lot of heat this is something you are definitely going to want to try!
The 1498 name is the year Columbus landed on Trinidad soil and in addition to the apricot fruit flavors this sauce also infuses the flavors of both blueberry and carrot! This was definitely our box favorite!
Get ready to have your mouth in flames with this bag of Ghost Pepper seasoned microwave popcorn! This is the only product in this assortment (except the grits) that we haven’t had a chance to try yet because we are saving it for a movie night but we can’t wait! If the bag alone is any indication of how spicy this is … we are in for a special treat!
These buffalo flavored pretzels really are just the outer casings of pretzels giving you maximum flavor and crunchiness! We love buffalo flavored anything and thought these had a good bit of heat to them! This bag is a 2 ounce snack size serving that would be great to keep in your purse or car for a quick snack on the go!
So in summary
Quality: Each item included in this subscription is well made and created for both it’s taste as well as heat which we love!
Presentation: Excellent, everything was packaged well and arrived perfectly.
Curation: Superb! This is a well rounded mix of items that ranged in levels of heat – we are still amazed that they managed to fit a breakfast food item in their as well!
Box Economy: For the $32.29 price of this box we received $35 in products – considering they include shipping and taxes in the price of this box this is a great deal!
