Getting hold of quality hot sauce online can be confusing. There’s a lot of outlets and it’s rare to find a marketplace that ticks all the boxes.
To make things easier we’ve gone and done the hard work for you. After a bunch of research here’s our list of the top online marketplaces to buy hot sauce, ranked out of 5 by the qualities that matter most; prices, range of products and cost/ease of delivery:
This shop is a lot of fun. From the tongue in cheek slogan “Your pain is our pleasure” to the mascot “Dr. Burnörium” they’ve embraced the sense of humour that’s so prevalent through-out hot sauce culture.
So get involved in the theatre and enjoy the shopping experience. There are loads of great brands on here and it doesn’t break the bank to get it all delivered. They even do next day shipping!
Product Range: ⭐⭐⭐
2. Hot Headz
Hot headz caters to the more “I just want to feel the pain” chilli head. However, beyond the normal sauces they have a lovely range of spice related products like death nuts and gift sets that makes this a good destination for people looking to buy a gift for a chilli maniac.
Shipping is a little more than some other platforms, but still very reasonable in the sense that other platforms are absorbing the cost and these guys are priced honestly.
Product Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
We’ve all heard of Amazon, but is it any good for buying hot sauce? The answer is yes and no. It’s the biggest online marketplace in the world so YES you can get hold of an amazing range from all over the world, but if you’re looking for a bargain this isn’t the place to go.
Amazon charges sellers chunky fees and as a result they have to levvy their prices. That said when you consider delivery this can even out if you’ve got Amazon Prime and go with free delivery on one of the bigger brands.
Product Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
One Stop Chilli Shop is the retail trading arm of Chilli Mash Company. For this reason it doesn’t provide the biggest range but there are a few smaller challenger brands that these guys give a great platform.
Combine that with the fact that you can buy fresh chillies and we’re onto a winner!
Product Range: ⭐⭐
In its defence the Food Market isn’t a marketplace that’s focused on spicy food. Regardless they have done a good job of curating a really interesting range of top-quality products.
Much like amazon their revenue model is commission based and requires the producers to levvy their prices, so the products aren’t cheap, but it’s more than worth it if you want a trusted brand to do the hard work of picking the best stuff for you.
Product Range: ⭐⭐⭐
There we have it. If you want hot sauce in the UK there’s actually quite a lot of choice. Our advice; decide what matters most to you. Cost, speed of delivery or choice, then use that to help make the decision about where you’re going to buy online.
Most importantly though, think about the brands that you’re supporting. All of these marketplaces support smaller producers in their own way and the dedication of customers like you ultimately makes all the difference. Whilst you're here why not check out our award winning range of hot sauces.
