Sunday morning, after Joseph and Cassie’s fun fun fun wedding, we headed out of Virginia. On our way out of town we stopped at The Sauce Shoppe who’s slogan is “all the sauce you’ll ever need.” And while we were skeptical at first (after all who is this man and how does he know how much sauce we’ll ever need?), Sam the sauce man delivered.

The store has hundreds of varieties of hot sauces, dry rubs, salad dressings, olive oils, jams, preserves, etc. We walked around for about half an hour before deciding on a taste of home for Chad in Salt Lick BBQ sauce, some local Virgina whiskey sauce and also some Gullah soup and sauce mixes imported from Charleston that I had to take home just because I read about them in Southern Living – I am a marketers dream.
In case you’re wondering, the top 8 hottest sauces according to Sam are:
1. Da Bomb Ground Zero Sauce
2. Blair’s Ultra Death Sauce
3. Mad Dog 357 Hot Sauce
4. Mongoose Hot Sauce
5. Widow Hot Sauce
6. Wanza’s Wicket Temptation Sauce
7. Dave’s Gourmet Ultimate Insanity Sauce
8. Colon Blow Sauce (we didn’t taste this one but recommend staying away at all costs).
