Maggie's Famous Hot Sauce

This is more watery than I expected. I just cooked up two hot dogs, put them on buns, put sauce on top of each. By the time I put the lid on the sauce, put it in the fridge, and put the spoon in the sink (30 seconds?) the liquid soaked so much into the bread that when I picked up a bun it fell apart. As I tried to catch the hot dog, it knocked the other hot dog off my plate, tipped over my iced tea and ruined everything. I would not recommend this as a condiment on top of bread unless you're going to maybe use a fork or something to strain it a bit and make it less watery. Since I still wanted to review this product, I decided to just put some on top of a bun by itself.

This is the "mild" version and it's pretty hot. It tastes like a combination of that vinegary hot pepper spread you can get on top of a sandwich at a sub shop, mixed with ketchup. There's a lot of interesting ingredients in here, but I don't taste the depth of flavor I thought I'd get. I don't mind the flavor, but I think I could probably make a close copycat to this with far less ingredients. By the time I walk from the kitchen to the bedroom, the bread is a pinkish / redish hue and I can't stand the flavor or texture of the sauce with bread. While I will give this a another try with something else (maybe a baked potato or in an omelette), I won't be buying the it again because I feel it's taste on bread severly limits what I can use it on.
