If you're the type of person that starts your day off with eggs and Tobasco, why don't you give yourself an extra boost and replace the latter with DoubleKick Caffeinated Hot Sauce ($10). This flavorful condiment combines Asian and Southwestern chili sauces for a flavor all its own while packing the one-two punch of ginger and caffeine to get you going. With a rich taste that's both savory and sweet, it tastes great on nearly everything — and for added bonus points, put a spoonful or two into your next Bloody Mary and enjoy the results.
Whether you're fearing an end-of-the-world food crisis or just want to get a head start on next year's garden, the Survival Seed Vault ($40) has you covered. This hermetically-sealed waterproof container holds resealable packets of seeds for a variety of heirloom vegetables, including peppers, carrots, broccoli, tomato, peas, cucumber, onion, and zucchini. And not to worry if you've never planted a garden before — detailed planting, harvesting, and seed-saving instructions are included.
Add the lovely flavor of bacon to your next meal with Empire Bacon Mayonnaise ($9). Arriving in a 4 oz. jar, this specialty condiment is made from canola oil, pasteurized egg yolks, vinegar, salt, and bacon that was chosen to provide just the right amount of sweetness, smokiness, and rich flavor. The company suggests using it as sort of a bacon replacement, but if you ask us, it probably wouldn't hurt to go ahead and use it alongside the real thing.
Anyone who's ever had some hot Thai peanut sauce knows that the chilis and peanuts can live happily together — as they do in Instant Regret Peanut Butter ($12). This surprisingly spicy spread is made with King Naga chilis, peanuts, oil, and a little Habanero chili extract. How hot is it? Well, it measures 12 million SHU on the Scoville Scale, or way hotter than the ghost chili, and approaching pure capsaicin — which is pretty much the hottest thing on Earth.
You want to talk about Super Smores? Best be making them with some of these Wondermade Bourbon Marshmallows ($8). Soaked in Maker's Mark, these boozy sweets are sure to add a spark of unexpected flavor to whatever treat you put them in. Perfect for fooling unsuspecting in-laws over the holidays. If the hard liquor isn't your thing, they also offer Guinness, apple cinnamon, cranberry, pear, and pumpkin pie flavors.
