what's in the heck that's hot box
Everything that we received in our Heck That's Hot Box. There were a total of 7 items in here!


So what is all this stuff?


Our box insert


The Salt Lick Texas Salsa
the salt lick
This hot salsa is the restaurant style and has a nice little heat to it. We love that you can taste and see the peppers and other vegetables it's made with! And of course Mr. Not a Tree loves him some salsa and chips so this is actually all gone already!


Levinsky's Beet Habanero Blaze
levinsky's beet habanero blaze
This 8 ounce bottle of hot sauce is so delicious! Not only is it spicy but it's also bright and bold and has a good bit of tang to it! Great on sandwiches, vinaigrette or ANYTHING. The bottle says 138 million uses which to be fair is a slight exaggeration but great addition to almost any meal! 


Tanka Bar Turkey & Buffalo with Cranberries
tanka bar turkey & buffalo
This jalapeno flavored jerky bar uses turkey and buffalo meat along with sweet cranberries to create a complex flavor that fits perfectly into the season. This jerky is very soft - so it's great for people that prefer a more tender jerky


Endangered Species Chocolate Dark Chocolate w. Cinnamon, Cayenne & Cherries

Isn't this bar so cool - they have a Tamarin on the wrapper! But it doesn't stop there, this 60% cocoa bar uses a mixture of cinnamon, cayenne and cherries to create a complex, smoky flavor that you'll definitely enjoy. A must try for the chocolate lovers out there!


Arizona Gunslinger Habanero & Mango Pepper Sauce
arizona gunslinger pepper sauce
We actually have Arizona Gunslingers standard pepper sauce so we were pumped to try their Habanero Mango flavor. This has a smoky, chipotle style flavor that is rich and deep! A great addition to tacos for your Taco Tuesday!


Double K Popcorn Picante Flavor

This all natural microwave popcorn came in the picante flavor. We haven't had a chance to try this yet but we can't wait! 


Way Better Snacks Sweet Chili Tortilla Chips

While these weren't super hot these were so delicious! The actual chips are soft and crumbly and made with flax and quinoa to give you that whole grain while also hitting you with a tasty sweet chili flavor! We can say for certain that one bag is NOT enough!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation and presentation. The Heck that's Hot Box is a great way to find new foods that incorporate your favorite spicy flavors. We recommend this box for someone just getting into spicy foods or someone who really loves beautiful and bold flavors. The presentation is great, everything is packaged really securely and arrives perfectly. The quality is amazing. It shows that they choose the foods they curate for quality and flavor rather than just HEAT. Everything tasted amazing. And curation. They did an awesome job of pulling together a variety of foods that use spice in so many ways! A great incorporation of spicy peppers all the way around - great job by Heck that's Hot!
