Have you ever tried putting hot sauce on your food only to be disappointed over how mild it is? You’re not alone. While some people can’t stand even just a little spice in their foods, many of us love the experience of eating the hottest hot sauces.
But do you think you can stand to try the hottest hot sauces in the world? For reference, the popular Tabasco Pepper Sauce you normally see in restaurants or have in your local supermarket has up to 5,000 Scoville. And if you think you can withstand the world’s hottest hot sauce, we’ve also indicated where you can buy it and try it yourself.
Bumblef**ked Hot Sauce
Scoville Hotness Units: 6,000,000
Habanero chilis score relatively high on the Scoville chart with up to 350,000 Scoville. Now imagine Habanero chilis and added capsaicin (the substance found in most chilis that give off the burning sensation we love) hitting you hard in the face. To quote its manufacturer, Bumblefoot, this is not the right hot sauce for beginners.
While the feeling of this hot sauce is supposed to be similar to a slap in the face, it’s also mixed in with honey mustard, Caribbean fruits, ginger, and ginseng to round out the taste. It’s still a pretty spicy contender, but for those who love hot sauce in its hottest, purest form, you’re going to have to go up the list even more.
You can buy Bumblef**ked Hot Sauce in Pepperworld Spicy Good Food Market for 11.65 Euros, or around $14. Each bottle has around 2 fluid ounces or 60 mililiters.
The End Hot Sauce
Scoville Hotness Units: 6,000,000

The Source Hot Sauce
Scoville Hotness Units: 7,100,000
When the manufacturer tells you to “treat this product with respect” and use it as a food additive one drop at a time, you know they mean business. You have to be over the age of 21 to buy a bottle of this ancient artifact-styled hot sauce.
The Source has a record of 7.1 million Scoville because it takes a hundred pots of chile peppers to produce an ounce – and each bottle has 4.8 ounces. It’s so spicy that there’s a legal disclaimer for those planning on trying it.
You can buy The Source Hot Sauce on Amazon for $100. Just take a look at the reviews to see that trying out this hot sauce means business, especially for those who love hot and spicy food.
Mad Dog 357 Plutonium No. 9
Scoville Hotness Units: 9,000,000
Made with 60% pure capsicum, Mad Dog 357 Plutonium No. 9 is said to be the hottest hot sauce in the world. The small bottle of hot sauce gets its spice from a thousand ounces (around 28 kilograms) of raw peppers processed until it got down to one ounce (0.03 kilograms) of extract left. And with one bottle only weighing one fluid ounce, that means a single drop is the extract of a thousand peppers.
Due to the extreme nature of this product, it’s not recommended that you consume this hot sauce directly and should be used as a food additive. There’s even a legal disclaimer promising that only someone who isn’t drunk and not sound of mind is eating it, and that no one is going to sue Mad Dog for whatever happens – that’s how extreme the hot sauce is.
You can buy a small bottle of Mad Dog 357 Plutonium No. 9 at Mad Dog’s online store for $100, exclusive of shipping.
If you dare to try any of these hot sauces, be warned that this is not for beginners. For those that are already sensitive to milder hot sauce products, do not try to consume these, especially those with legal disclaimers – they aren’t printed as a joke or as a challenge.
But if you’re a pepper afficionado and believe you can take on the world’s hottest hot sauce, get them on the online stores and see if you can survive a drop of these hot sauces!
