Looking for a good hot sauce

Finding those uber hot sauces in Stockholm

My husband and I are big fans of hot sauces (like Blairs or Mama Africas) and are always on the lookout for hotter ones. Unfortunatly, most commercial grocery stores in Stockholm only have Louisiana hot sauce (which even the hottest version does not really taste THAT hot to me) or something of like quality. Does anyone know of any stores in the Stockholm area that sell those uber hot hot sauces like Blair's or Mad dog where you only have to add a drop to feel the heat?

When I went home this summer (Texas) I packed tons of hot sauces with me to bring back to Sweden!

IKEA used to carry La Costeña which is a pretty tasty spicy Mexican salsa -- good for chips and dip. Sadly, most stores have discontinued the product sad.gif

Howeer, check out! It's a shop located in Gothenburg, and you can order to have the sauces mailed to you. Here's the link for their Blair's collection: They have tons of other brands of salsa in stock too! Yummmmmmm!

Pretty sure that the English Shop in Söderhallarna has a couple of Blair's sauces. Otherwise I've seen the (admittedly not as strong) Encona Carribean sauces around, which are lovely. I've been on the lookout for a good bajan mustard/chilli sauce but haven't had any luck.

Bear in mind that Sweden is a country that considers the red spanish pepper to be hot - I've been told quite a few times by people that habanero is 'inedible'.

(thanks very much btw for that extremefoods link - they're excellent!)

Since you're in sthlm, you can try going to La Neta. It's a small taco joint near Muffin Bakery by Hötorget. They sell bottles of hot sauce that they import from Mexico for about 40kr. I think there's three to four different kinds but if you're looking for a really spicy one, try the one in the green bottle! While you're there, try the taco al pastor! Yummy! Plus, they also sell their homemade tortillas!

I was missing Franks Hot sauces so much I ordered a batch last week (& others) from, they came within a few days, well worth researching & shipping much missed items, especially when the weather takes these turns!

Glad to see the tip about, though I solved this myself by ordering a kilo of Bhut Jolokia paste from India last year. Wicked stuff.

I sure miss Al Pastor tacos... I wonder if they make them like in the DF...?... shaved off a vertical spit, pineapple on top... chopped onion and cilantro, red sauce, fresh corn tortilla. Heaven!

BTW, La Neta means 'For real,' or seriously, just FYI.

See if you can pick up the Encona Hot Pepper sauces which is real rich and spicy in flavour, not sure you can get them here in Sweden..if they did they would most probably priced at 90kr grrrrr!! but i get mine from london and the bottles are alot bigger than Tabascos and they are cheaper in price, you can get them for a £1 in the onepound shops in london which is 11kr in Swedish money. I have about 5 bottles of Encona left, i'll be sad when they run out but paying over 30kr for Tabasco sauce out here is just ridiculous grrrrr grrrrr!!!

Kerostarfx - THANK YOU! I have been trying to find somewhere to get Cholula hot sauce over here... and the link for extremefoods you put up has it!

Definitely not really hot - but in my opinion one of the best flavors out there.

I've been doing the same as you. Everytime I went home to Texas, I was carrying back a bunch of real hot sauce.

Thank you so much for the English shop tip! I recently picked up some of the Blair's "After Death" sauce there and it was quite good (and also cleared up my stuffy nose smile.gif ). They have a decent selection of hot sauces there and I am definitly going to buy a few and have a hot sauce tasting party.

Awhile back I picked up a bottle of Dave's Gourmet, Ultimate Insanity sauce at a little newsagent in Solna Centrum. I went in to buy a drink, and was pleasantly surprised to find a number of hot sauces on the shelves of this otherwise unremarkable little shop. It was a couple of years ago, I don't know if the shop is still there.

We bought a hot sauce called "Bushman's revenge" at an ICA Maxi, although it was at Orust, I'm sure there must be a store where they sell it. It's a South African import, and although on the pricey side, it lasts longer because it IS that hot! Once added a teaspoonful of it to a chili sauce and man, we were on fire smile.gif

Also, if you ever venture to Göteborg, there is a shop along Kungsgatan that specialises in hot sauces.
