Cinnamon and Chilli Candies – Value ?

These are pretty delicious! Definitely spicy, but they are reasonable, even for me. First, there is some candy spice, but it follows up with the chilli spice towards the end of the candy. It’s hot, but it’s the enjoyable hot for me.

Tindaloo Curry – Value ~$5

Next up is this curry rub – and it’s the source of a lot of the initial spicy smell when I opened the box. I don’t really have use for this rub – sometimes I had used this type of rub when cooking out, but it’s basically winter now. It’s marked as a 4/5 spice rating – so I have a feeling this will be WAY too hot for me if I try it!

Sidekick Screaming Pepper Extra Hot Sauce – Value ~$6

Next up is a 150ml bottle of Sidekick Hot Sauce. This smells so fantastic. Almost like a smooth chipotle smell, so I decided that I should give it a try. It’s HOT. I can’t say I’m surprised since this is a hot sauce subscription, but wow, I’m burning up.

Dr Burnorium’s Ghost Pepper Psycho Corn – Value ~$2.50

We received a Dr. Burnorium’s product last month and it was super hot. This is no different. We love popcorn in this house, but wow – this is smoking for sure.

They also threw in a recipe card if you’d like to kick up for cooking a notch.

Verdict: I think this box is good, but lacks in value for what you’re paying in the United States. Even when I estimate the candy at a high value of $10, we’re still looking at $23.50. What that doesn’t account for is what you’d be paying in shipping of each item to the US, since these are all UK-based. If you’re into hot sauce, and like trying items from the UK – this is a good box, and you’re probably used to paying the high shipping costs already.
