SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. — Pepper Palace offers a wide array of mouth and throat-scorching Carolina Reaper-rich products for true chiliheads like their Smokin’ Reaper Hot Sauce, Reaper Salsa, and their creamy Wing Master – Reaper.

But for those who prefer to walk on the milder side of life, there are many other low-heat and medium options to choose from. And on Thursday, June 22, Pepper Palace released five brand new mild-to-wild flavors to their impressive lineup.

First, the mildest option amongst the new flavors is the Chesapeake Bay Hot Sauce featuring cayenne peppers in the ingredients as its main source of heat.

Now, before dousing food with Chesapeake Bay, consider this: Cayenne peppers offer approximately two to three times the heat of a serrano pepper on the Scoville Scale.

So, Chesapeake Bay might feel like more of a medium-heat sauce to novices as opposed to savvy chiliheads. Food for thought: A jalapeño chili pepper registers between 2,500 and 8,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Cayenne comes in at 30,000 to 50,000 SHU.

The jalapeño registers on the milder side of the Scoville Scale, so it's an excellent pepper to compare against hotter peppers, in terms of SHU.

Next, Pepper Palace upgraded their selection of “hot” sauces with a pair of new products: the Datil Do and Hoppin’ Heat Hot Sauces. Datil Do is the first Pepper Palace recipe to ever feature the Capsicum Chinese species’ datil pepper, which grows and thrives in St. Augustine, Florida.

The datil comes in at a whopping 100,000 to 300,000 SHU. Meanwhile, Hoppin’ Heat features red habanero peppers, which puts this Pepper Palace creation in the 100,000 to 350,000 SHU range. However, if a chilihead really wants to feel the burn, Pepper Palace’s final two new products, Strained Brain and Seven [7] hot sauces are the best choices.

Strained Brain and Seven [7] Bring the Heat!

Today, five new hot sauces grace Pepper Palace shelves in the U.S. and Canada, but now it’s time to truly play with fire. While Chesapeake Bay, Datil Do, and Hoppin’ Heat all offer their own level of spiciness, it’s the Strained Brain and Seven [7] that will give chiliheads what they truly want from a hot sauce.

Strained Brain features the 7 Pot Brain Strain pepper that registers between 1 million and 1,350,000 SHU! The vinegar-based sauce relies on garlic and onion powder, along with black pepper, to round out its flavor profile.

Last, but not least, Pepper Palace introduces the Seven [7] hot sauce. Seven [7] relies on the 7 pot chocolate douglah to supply the fire customers will feel in their mouths and throats after tasting this new concoction.

Chiliheads will have to decide for themselves, though, whether Seven [7] is actually hotter than Strained Brain. The 7 pot chocolate douglah can fluctuate on the Scoville Heat Scale from 923,889 to 1,853,986 SHU!

Founded by Craig and Tanya Migawa in 1989, the Pepper Palace proudly parades all of their hand-crafted, small-batch hot sauces in more than 160 locations across both the United States and Canada, at the time of this writing. And you can find all five of the new flavors available online right now on the Pepper Palace website.
