The second addition to the Crazy Bastard range is Jalapeño & Date. It's mild and thick and sweet and delicious. Check out the ingredients below to see how the sauce is built. Read the info on heat, this one is specifically designed to be much milder than the original flavour.
Also, because the peppers used in this sauce are so fibrous, it's very thick. just add a small amount of water to the bottle and shake it up to make it more pourable. Check out this video review by the UK's most promenent spicy club, The Clifton Chilli Club.

The Jalapeño is a pepper that most people are familiar with. It's tasty and flavourful and mild enough for everyone to enjoy. While the heat level doesn't come close to the Habanero of the Yellow Label, it has a pleasantly mild, lingering heat.
The Hungarian Wax Pepper is a big green sweet pepper, it has a heat similar to the Jalapeño but sometimes less. On average it keeps the heat of the Jalapeño up, brings a bit of sweetness to the mix and gives the sauce some bulk.
The natural sweetness comes from fresh dates. This also pairs very well with the Jalapeño. The sauce was originally designed to compliment bacon, as dates do so very well, but obviously it works excellently on many other foods both meaty and vegan.
To bring a kind of high note to the heat profile, making it more interesting, there are common red chili peppers. The idea is that you can notice the heat and sharp flavour from these chilis, while at the same time enjoying the mild, lingering warmth of the Jalapeños.
The Poblano chili gives the sauce another subtle flavour layer and more low level lingering heat. These peppers are usually milder than Jalapeños but they also have a different flavour. It's all part of the blend.
This sauce is very mild. In fact it's a stretch to call it a hot sauce. It's more like a really tasty sauce that happens to have some spice to it. Everybody can enjoy it for the flavour and the pleasant tingle it brings. No pain here, just a complex and harmonious blend of flavours with an interesting warmth that lingers in the mouth.
