When thinking about the best truffle hot sauce brands, we go back to the beginning. Truffles are an ancient delicacy that has bewitched the tastebuds of foodies for thousands of years. The intoxicating taste of truffles makes us want to eat it with everything. And since hot sauce is a condiment that you also want to eat with everything, it only makes sense that the two would eventually be married.
Truffles and hot sauce are truly a match made in culinary heaven. That’s why so many companies are coming out with their own versions. But which are the best? Here are Westchester Woman‘s picks.
Best Overall Truffle Hot Sauce Brand
TRUFF Hot Sauce
TRUFF Hot Sauce is probably the most well-known brand. That’s likely because TRUFF Hot Sauce ridiculously delicious and addicting. It comes in an original made from black truffles, ripe red chili peppers, agave nectar, and a perfect blend of spices. There is also a white truffle version that is also infused with coriander, and hotter versions of both the black and white truffle options.
TRUFF is on the pricer end of hot sauce. A single bottle ranges in price from $15.28 to $34.00 on their website. And that is actually cheaper than it had previously sold for at around $20 at the grocery stores. But I’ve also seen it go for about $12 in certain stores. Regardless, you can’t really argue that its not worth the price because it totally is for the taste. You’ll want to pour it over literally EVERYTHING you eat.
Most Affordable Truffle Hot Sauce
Melinda’s Black Truffle Hot Sauce
Melinda’s Black Truffle Hot Sauce combines Italian black truffles with cayenne peppers and a touch of Colombian honey. The result is a sauce that offers a rich and complex flavor profile. Made with whole, fresh ingredients and the best peppers on the planet, Melinda’s Black Truffle Hot Sauce is a testament to the brand’s commitment to quality and taste.
But deciding whether it tastes like a true truffle can be up for debate. While it hints at that umami goodness, it doesn’t quite have the same addictive taste we come to truffles for. We’ve also had bottles that taste a lot better than others. But for the price point, which is around $4 to $7, you really can’t go wrong.
Best Buffalo-Style Sauce
For those who crave a classic combination buffalo hot sauce, meet Trufflin Truffalo. This delightful concoction blends cayenne and chipotle peppers with the unique flavors of truffles. The result is a sauce that adds a touch of umami to your favorite buffalo wings or vegetable dishes. Made with all-natural ingredients and without any preservatives, Trufflin Truffalo is a dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, and vegan-friendly option. It’ll run you about $20 a bottle and will deliver on everything you hoped it would be.
Best Ghost Pepper Style Sauce
Ghost Scream Ghost Truffle Hot Sauce
One notable contender in this arena is Ghost Scream Ghost Truffle Hot Sauce. This gourmet sauce combines the bold flavors of black truffles with the signature heat of ghost peppers. The infusion of savory spices and fresh ingredients, including black truffles, creates flavor that is rich and unforgettable. With a heat level rating of six to seven out of ten, it offers a spicy kick without overwhelming the taste buds.
Best Jalapeno Style Sauce
Cobra Chili Black Truffle Mild Chili Sauce
The Cobra Chili Black Truffle Mild Chili Sauce offers uniquely tangy flavors with umami undertones backed by the heat of jalapeno. It’s made in small batches that help cater to its unique flavor profile that includes white wine, garlic, fresh onion, and leek
Best Hot Oil Truffle Hot Sauce
We love SYDSAUCE for its versatility as a hot sauce, dip, or cooking oil, which allows you to cover more things in truffle. It’s made with black truffles, cold pressed extra version olive oil, and a symphony of spices like Aleppo pepper, marjoram, and Mediterranean Sea Salt.
