#NYC #HotSauce Expo 2016

On April 23rd, I made my way to the fourth NYC Hot Sauce Expo, where hundreds of people got together to try an array of hot sauces from various places. 
I personally got to like spicy sauces and spicy food recently. Yes, it may sound weird that a Peruvian likes their ceviche mild, but my tolerance to spicyness is not too high. However, I can assure you that after been at this expo it completely changed.
As soon as I arrived I tried a delicious bloody mary sauce, then I made my way to this interesting booth where you can measure your body temperature after trying a hot sauce, the reward was a picture and an sandwich ice cream from Melt, yum! I believe this was one of the hottest sauces in the show, I almost cried because it was extremely hot, well at least for me, and my low tolerance to spicyness made me looked forward to devouring that ice cream sandwich afterwards. 
Thank God, there were giving free milk out to calm down the fire inside me LOL and allowed me to keep trying other sauces. My favorites were the sauces from Sam & Oliver Handfracted Heat and Torchbearer Sauces. I loved the branding of the first one since their name is based on their two cute doggies, the creative mixing of their flavor full sauces were great. The other brand had a broad variety of sauces, from non spicy to hot. I loved their garlic and honey mustard sauces, also the fact that their sauces are natural make them a even more attractive product. 
Overall, I had a great experience, they had an outdoor space where you can grab a bite and some cold beers and to close up the day, Mexican paletas. If you are a fan of hot sauces make sure you attend next year.
