Insanely good. We put it on everything
This will turn into quite the habit. We first found Barry’s through Vinal General (the best) and we’re hooked on the ghost pepper. Now we shipped them all home to Oakland and see many repeating orders in our future!
Fantastic smokey flavor -- with a heck of a kick!
Barry's Original sauce is my favorite hot sauce -- the heat combined with smokey flavor are fantastic. But when you add in the Reaper peppers...it goes to a different level! It has enough heat to let you know it's a Reaper but it's not going to put you in tears. Great sauce!
Damn good hot sauce!
If you like the rest of Barry’s hot sauce but want more extreme heat then this is your sauce. Just as delicious as the original but with all the Reaper kick. Fun story, I have both in my fridge and asked my wife for the original for my pizza, loaded a slice with it, and got halfway through before realizing she grabbed the Original X. Spent the next half hour sweating and dragon breathing and I wasn’t even mad. You’ll love this hot sauce if you like serious heat and great flavor!
I would give this sauce a 4.7 out of 5. The only reason being is that some of the seeds appear to have been cooked/heated into a hardness, making it rock hard when eating. Otherwise flavor 5.0/5.0 Heat 7.0/10 but compliments the flavor perfectly. Thanks to Fuego Box for introducing me to this one :)
Barry's Original X is HEAT without sacrificing flavor like so many hotter sauces do. It has the same, smoky flavor as the original, but a lot hotter. I love that I get some serious heat and flavor!
