Reviewed January 20, 2013

This store has the largest selections of salsas, sauces, and rubs I have ever seen in my life. At least 40 different things to taste all for free. They have fruit based salsa that has no spice at all up to the level 10+ blow your ears off hot stuff. They currently carry seeds to grow your own peppers and have the dried peppers (Ghost, Scorpion). Make it a one hour excursion, buy a few new things to spruce up your dinners or party occasions. P.S. Buy 6 bottles get one free.

I absolutely love this place. The staff is always super friendly and helpful. Each day they use their existing stock merchandise to create home-made appetizers for your tasting delight. Beware though - this is a "hot" shop, so many of the items are spiced with some great heat. Salsas, sauces, peppers, tshirts, merchandise, chow chow, dry mixes, etc. This place is AWESOME!! If you like the heat but aren't sure what to with it, they will provide you with recipes too!

This place has a ridiculous amount of sauces! It's fun browsing through all they offer and they always have plenty of samples! My husband did the sauce challenge with the nasal napalm, it was a funny memory but he definitely regretted it afterwards lol

Holy cow! The mecca of all hot sauce/bbq/salsa places! Awesome selection! Some mild to wild stuff here! Even if you don't buy something you have to stop in and look at this place! The one IN the mini mall (across from the aquarium 3rd floor I believe) is the best and biggest one! They had a buy 5 get the 6th free deal going on while we were there. Every time we're in Gatlinburg we stop in and grab some unique items...make great gifts too! :)

Loved all the taste testers!! It was awesome. I could spend 1/2 a day in the shop. Only Con: Prices are tourist norm. $7bux a bottle is a little steep for me.
