Year Of The Dog - Lucky Dog Hot Sauce

Year of the Dog Thai chile pineapple hot sauce may well be Lucky Dog's best sauce to date, and is featured on Season 9 of the YouTube sensation, Hot Ones!

Pronounced pineapple overtones blend seamlessly with the sublime flavor of red Thai chiles in a surprisingly savory fruit-based hot sauce.  


Never one to shy away from  complex flavor profiles, Lucky Dog Hot Sauce's Year of the Dog attempts to redefine what a pineapple hot sauce can be.


Rather than muddle the flavors with competing tropical fruit notes, Year of the Dog singularly features the delicious pineapple, while avoiding the trap of being a "hot pineapple sauce" by using a spectacular balance of sweet & savory notes that emerge or are muted depending on application.    


Deeply layered flavors of toasted onion, roasted garlic, toasted sesame, Aleppo peppers, honey, lime, and hints of Chinese mustard & ginger with subtle rice vinegar blend perfectly to create an amazingly adaptable and uniquely balanced hot sauce that excels in flavor and versatility.  


Rarely is a pineapple hot sauce particularly hot, savory or versatile. Year of the Dog combines all 3 characteristics to expand the boundaries of what you've come to expect from a pineapple hot sauce, with the bold & satisfying flavors that remain a hallmark of Lucky Dog Hot Sauce. 



 Lucky Dog Hot Sauce Year of the Dog is a winner!
