It used to be, the only time you heard the words "South Shore" and "spicy" in the same sentence was in the South Shore Mall when you're feeling super adventurous at Panda Express. My, how times have changed: Hot Sauce World.
Straight outta Hell Hull, HSW is your all-in-one, online superstore stocking hundreds of hot and BBQ sauces, pepper extracts, steak marinades, and even drink mixes, all keyword searchable and easily categorized by brand, product type, or heat (although Val Kilmer may also be listed under "ponytail"). Favorites from the 160-plus bottle "Hottest Hot Sauce" group include Pain is Good Batch #37 that fuses roasted garlic with habanero peppers; Possible Side Effects (red savina habaneros w/ cayenne and roasted green jalapenos); and an absolutely insane 700,000 Scoville number that uses the pepper spray ingredient Capsicum called Smack My Ass And Call Me Sally, which isn't nearly as funny when Sally Field says it. Because she's just old these days, and her name is Sally to begin with. There're also a slew of combo packs like a "Don't get mad, get even" Scorned Woman set that includes three bottles of wing, BBQ, and hot sauce; the See Dick Burn kit with crayon drawn labels that depict flames coming out of Dick's stick figure rear end; and the 4, 5-oz bottle pack of varying hotnesses with sexy anime labels and names like "The Big Hot One" from Girls in Heat (also searchable under "Val Kilmer").
They also stock collectibles like the wood-crated 6-oz Caboom MK-2 POW Grenade and Blair's 3 AM Reserve Pepper Extract in an elegant melted skull-topped gift bottle to go with myriad extras including the Road Kill Cookbook, Wake The F*** Up Extra Strong Coffee, and chili pepper clocks -- the only time you heard those words in the same sentence was in a Brookstone, every day.
