The Heat is On: Global trends in Chillis and Hot Sauce

Some Like It Hot .Shop |

The heat is on in the world of hot sauce! If you're a chillihead, then you know that the industry is constantly evolving and innovating to keep up with global trends. From craft producers to super hot sauces, there's always something new and exciting to try.

Craft producers are on the rise in the hot sauce industry. These small-batch, artisanal sauces like horseshoe brands or Hot Honey from the Holten Homestead, are made with unique and high-quality ingredients, often sourced locally. They offer a flavor-forward approach to hot sauce, with a focus on taste and quality over heat. Many of these producers are using different types of chillies from around the world, including rare and hard-to-find varieties.

Super hot sauces are also growing in popularity, with a new generation of chilliheads seeking out the hottest sauces possible. Some of the world's hottest chillies, like the Carolina Reaper and the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, are being used to create sauces that can literally bring tears to your eyes.

Flavor-forward sauces are becoming increasingly popular, with more emphasis on the unique flavors and ingredients in each sauce - like this Lemon Drop sauce from Savir Foods - created by chef Josue Rivas. This trend is being driven by chefs and foodies who are looking for hot sauces that complement their food, rather than overpowering it. These sauces are often made with fruits, herbs, and spices, along with chillies, to create complex and layered flavors.

Hot Ones is a YouTube channel that has become a global sensation. The show features celebrity guests being interviewed while eating increasingly hot wings, with hot sauces from around the world being used to add heat. The show has been a huge hit, leading to a surge in interest in hot sauce, and many hot sauce producers have been featured on the show.

Subscription boxes are another popular trend in the hot sauce industry. These boxes are typically delivered on a monthly or quarterly basis and contain a variety of hot sauces, snacks, and other spicy goodies. They're a great way to discover new sauces and get a regular fix of heat.

Ultra-premium sauces are also becoming more popular, with brands like Truff leading the way. These sauces are often made with high-end ingredients like truffle oil and agave nectar, and come in fancy packaging that makes them ideal for gift-giving.

Finally, celebrity hot sauces are another trend to watch. Many celebrities, including Alice Cooper, have created their own hot sauces, often as a way to raise money for charity. These sauces are often made in collaboration with hot sauce producers and offer a unique spin on the hot sauce trend - with Netflix even inventing one for Jeremy Renner Hot Sauce in the Knives out drama.

As you can see, the world of hot sauce is constantly changing and evolving. Whether you're a die-hard chillihead or a curious foodie, there's always something new and exciting to try. At Some Like It Hot .Shop, we're proud to stock a range of hot sauces from around the world, so you can always find something that suits your taste.
