If you're addicted to mouth-screaming heat, chances are you're an adventurous eater. Lucky you, there are spicy concoctions from all around the world! Still, you might be inclined to keep your sweet and savory food lives separate. But we're here to say you don't have to live a double life!
Sweet and heat go together so well, it would be a culinary tragedy to keep them apart. That's what makes hot honey so incredible! Whether on your sweet/savory food or in your favorite drinks, Hot Honey is a taste revelation that will leave your mouth singing! Sounds crazy, except it's true!
How To Use Hot Honey
Hot honey has been wowing people like you and me for the last several years. Why? Because it unleashes the flavor of so many different foods! Hot honey usually features premium honey infused with various, hot flavorful chiles. You might wonder if it goes together, but if you've ever tried a spicy chutney or jelly, you get how it works. Only, hot honey is so much better.
One taste is all you need to get hooked, whether you're using it on a hot, baked dessert, breakfast, lunch, dinner, or anything really. Try it on eggs, yogurt, FRIED CHICKEN (pictured), ice cream, pizza, cheese, bread, ribs, chicken and your preferred meat, plus so much more. True story, hot honey initially became famous as a pizza condiment. So trying it on your favorite slice might be a good idea. Depending on the heat content, we recommend tasting a bit first before going all in!
Here are other opportunities for hot honey goodness:
- Tortilla Chips
- Chicken and Waffles (in place of syrup)
- Bacon Pancakes (We tested our Hot Honey on these pancakes in our super secret hot sauce lab. The verdict: It blew us away!)
This by no means is an exhaustive list. Test out for yourself what works. Seemingly unusual combinations can become deliciously explosive with some Hot Honey! And stay tuned to find out what makes our hot honey special :-).
Spice Up Your Beverages
Hot Honey not only powers up your food's flavor several levels, but it transforms your drinks, too! If you already use a sweetener in your coffee, tea, or mixed drinks, adding a kick couldn't hurt, right? It adds a whole new dimension to your favorite beverages! And, if you don't usually add sweeteners due to health concerns, hot honey is the perfect compromise due to its health benefits. But more on that later!
You can add it to your latte for a creamy, kick in the pants (pictured). Our hot honey is steeped with a touch of cinnamon, which is the perfect compliment to a latte.
