The company, most famous for supplying many of the sauces found on the incredibly popular YouTube series The hottestcollaborated with the Bakersfield Boys to create a hot sauce that, while not particularly destructive, can still kick a little.
“When the Korn team contacted us to create a hot sauce, we may have freaked out,” they state. “You know members Jonathan Davis, James Shaffer, Brian Welch and Ray Luzier as rock legends, but did you know they have great taste buds too? We partnered with the group to create a hot sauce based on their Bakersfield, CA roots.
“here to kill pays homage to the bounty of produce grown in the Central Valley with the sweet, charred flavor of roasted corn and vibrant jalapeño and serrano peppers. Smoky chipotles in adobo and cumin add earthy notes that echo the vistas and canyons outside the city. Made by our friends at Heartbeat Hot Sauce, this sauce is a go-to for tacos, grilled shrimp, burgers, burritos and more.
Each bottle uses fresh ingredients like onions, corn, jalapenos, pineapple, serrano peppers, chipotles, garlic, lime juice, and other spices. Of particular note is the omission of gut bombs like insanely hot Carolina reapers or ghost peppers, which is why this sauce is rated 2.5 out of 10 on Heatonist’s spiciness scale. You can get yourself a bottle for $12 today.
So whether you’re a Habanero homie or a Cayenne idiot, you should be able to handle the heat Korn throws out.
