Imagine you've just climbed to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. There you are, sweaty and out of breath, your joints aching, taking in all the natural splendor perched atop the highest mountain in Africa. Suddenly, the ground beneath you begins to quake and a hot stream of lava erupts out of the mountain top. It dawns on you that you are now standing on top of an active volcano. But instead of running for you life, you decide you have to find out how the lava tastes.
If this describes you, then you're ready to tackle the Nightmare Kit. The three hottest sauces in the Karma Sauce catalogue. Filled to the brim with bright flavors, but pulling absolutely no punches when it comes to heat.
First there's Extreme Karma, which became infamous early in Season 5 of Hot Ones for causing the first guest of the season to tap out (see for yourself). Extreme Karma is the return of your friendly neighborhood Good Karma sauce but infused with 100% super hots (Bhut Jolokia, Trinidad Scorpion, Moruga). Don't worry though, it still has all the complex sweet & savory flavor of the original.
Funken' Hot Yellow Meruga edition offers waves of rich flavor to compliment the heaping helping of Meruga and Fatalli. This sauce has only been around since 2017, but has already taken home several awards, including best in show and best overall hot sauce at zestfest 2018.
Finally, Ashes2Ashes arrives to finger-snap any remaining contestants into dust. It's a sauce so hot that it uses Bhut Jolokia as a mellowing agent. It's an ode to the rich taste of the ultra hot peppers themselves while complimenting them with hints of lime and garlic. But don't be fooled by the flavor. Ashes2Ashes plays to win.
