    • Hey Ben, Thanks for the question! I personally prefer going with really unique hot sauces when I gift them… cool labels, fun names, strange but intriguing ingredients, that sort of thing. Definitely hot sauces that people might not buy themselves. I don’t usually go for any “suicide sauce” variety though – I want the person I’m gifting it to, to actually enjoy it, and while the super hot is a fun dare, most don’t realistically enjoy them. I can’t name any brand in particular at the moment though – normally hot sauces I gift are ones I’ve stumbled across in my travels at a local market or trade show or somewhere like that! I’m sure googling “unique hot sauces” will give you some starters if you want to select one online!
