2019 marks the 34th anniversary of one of the most iconic shows to ever hit the small screen. In honor of this, online retailer Always Fits, released a collection of Golden Girls hot sauce that’ll definitely add lots of feisty flavor to your favorite meals. The retailer’s choice of honoring the Girls is not something to dismiss. It’s actually a pretty clever way of paying homage to their zingy banter! The classic 80s comedy show makes us laugh until we’re clutching our bellies and crying while laughing. But these fiery condiments will definitely have us working up a sweat and crying, because it’s so good!
Since you clicked on this article, I’ll go ahead and assume that you’re either a big fan of the show or just like novelty hot sauces or both. There are two kinds of people in the world: there are those who can’t tolerate even a tiny hint of spice and those live for the burn. Did you know that our bodies think we’re experiencing pain when we eat a pepper? This triggers a release of endorphins a.k.a. the happy chemicals to cancel out the pain and give us that blissful rush instead. That’s basically why people get enough of the pepper’s burn. And these special hot sauces are definitely packing some heat!
If you’ve been looking for something to add a bit of sass and spice into your life, then this may be it!
Always Fits named the sauces using words that captured the Girls’ personalities
In their product description page, Always Fits wrote that their gal-inspired sauces are perfect for those looking to step up their game. According to them, getting their product will transform you into a “bad-ass, fire-breathing, hot sauce swigging friend”. There’s Bea Spicy for Bea Arthur’s acerbic Dorothy Zbornak, Desert Rose for Betty White’s good-natured Rose Nylund, Sicilian Fire for Estelle Getty’s wisecracking Sophia Petrillo and Hot Slut for Rue McClanahan’s adventurous Blanche Deveraux.
These product names will definitely have people doubling over in your kitchen. Better yet, if you’re planning to gift it, the recipient will definitely have a good giggle upon the reveal!
Every Golden Girls hot sauce packs a lot of heat
But these hot sauces inspired by the Golden Girls are no laughing matter. They’re the real deal. For those still learning to appreciate the goodness of the fiery flavor, you can choose between Bea Spicy and Desert Rose as these two are the mildest sauces in the foursome. The Jalapeño pepper, which most people can tolerate, is the main ingredient of these two sauces. The pepper scores just around 2,500 to 5,000 in the Scoville Heat Scale.
On the other hand, Sicilian Fire and Hot Slut are made with Habanero peppers. The piping hot pepper essence is combined with a mixture of garlic, spices, and carrot puree to deliver a sultry, flavorful hit to your taste buds. Habanero peppers make Jalapenos seem almost sweet with its blazing 100,000 to 350,000 Scoville points!
A single bottle will cost you $10 a pop. But if you’re looking to complete the set, you can get the 4-pack set for under $40 at Always Fits, which is a pretty sweet deal, if you ask us! They’ve even thrown in a spicy cheesecake recipe, so why not treat your girls to a “hot mother f*cking cheesecake”? It’ll definitely make any Golden Girls fan trill with glee! It will also make a great addition to anyone’s growing hot sauce collection…
