Tasty Heat’s Tangy Ghost Pepper and Serrano Hot Sauce Review

Tangy is a Serrano and Ghost pepper sauce made by Tasty Heat in Winnipeg, Manitoba. This bottle was a gift from a good friend in Toronto. I was very excited becuase I had been meaning to try some hot sauce from Tasty Heat.

This hot sauce is a vinegar forward sauce that is definitely Tangy. It has a mild heat and is said to go great with seafood, but it also worked well with some of my other meals.

The bottle is a standard woozy bottle with a white cap. The label is adorned with some interesting designs and graphics along with general hot sauce info.

Inside the bottle is a green, almost verde-like chunky hot sauce. The sauce flows extremely well which makes it easy to pour.

Floating around the vinegar base are scruptious chunks of ingredients like the peppers and fruits. Spices and seeds are speckled about the hot sauce as well.

Tasty Heat Tangy hot sauce on a spoon


Tangy by Tasty Heat smells, Tangy. Almost like a sweet relish.

The scent of the vinegar was strong as was the sweetness from the fruits.

I could not smell the peppers or the spice from the peppers but overall the scent was welcoming.


Tangy is definitely tangy. I’m noticing a theme here.

I found this sauce to be a little heavy on the ACV during taste-testing, but that was masked when enjoying with a meal.

On the first bite you taste a tang and a sweetness, again almost like a relish.

Diving further in, you can start to taste the fresh peppers, especially when you bite down on a seed. Thats when the heat kicks in and takes over.

Heat Level

Great fresh heat, with the burn still lingering on my tongue, I can taste the freshness of the ghost peppers as I breathe.

Tangy was pretty mild for me at a 5 out of 10 on my heat scale. But the heat was sharp, stingy, and lingered around for awhile after tasting this hot sauce.

Tasty Heat’s did a great job and preserving the freshness of the peppers in this recipe. Everything about the heat felt fresh and vibrant.

I was sweating on my cheeks and a little bit at the top of my head. It was quite refreshing on a very warm day. The more I have, the more I sweat.


Like I mentioned above this hot sauce from Tasty Heat tastes a lot like a spicy relish. It is tangy and sweetand then you are delighted with the fresh pepper flavour that rises from the heat.

Tangy is a great balance between flavour and heat

Conclusion: Overall Thoughts

I enjoyed Tangy by Tasty Heat. I have a second bottle I’ll keep around.

The flavour is pretty good and spicy pickle goes very well with many foods. If you’re looking for a good spicy relish substitute, this hot sauce is for you.
