Dave’s Insanity hot sauce is no doubt a HOT sauce! I made the mistake of pouring about a tablespoon onto one bite of my burrito when trying this out for the first time. And…my mouth felt like it was sent to hell to burn forever. It took about 20 minutes for it to cool down. It’s obviously hot, which we will talk about more below, but how well does Dave’s Insanity Sauce’s flavor, usability, and collectibility set it further apart from the pack? Let’s see!
How hot is Dave’s Insanity sauce Carolina Reaper?
Dave’s Insanity Sauce Caroline Reaper is insanely hot. It has a Scoville rating of 2.2 million! Little wonder, it’s one of the hottest sauces in the world.
Its ingredients are Carolina reaper peppers, water, salt, cane vinegar, hot pepper extract, acetic acid, garlic, and xanthan gum.
To have an inkling of how hot Dave’s Insanity Sauce Caroline Reaper is, it helps to know that Carolina Reaper (CR) was once written up in the Guinness Book of Records as the hottest pepper in the world.
Also, compare it to the popular Tabasco sauce, which has a Scoville rating of 100,000 to 350,000 units.
In point of fact, it’s probably the second hottest pepper in the world, with a Scoville rating of 2.2 million. But Dragon’s Breath Pepper is hotter, with a SHU of 2.4 million!
The sauce is so hot that the burn lasts (which is not surprising when considering the Scoville rating). Caroline Reaper is a crossbreed, a mix of two peppers, a Bhut Jolokia (the ghost pepper), and a red habanero.
If you have regulatory or heart conditions, you want to stay off because the sauce is insanely hot!
If you think habanero is hot, consider that ghost pepper is about 5 times hotter. And that Caroline Reaper is 2 times hotter than ghost pepper. Ghost pepper’s Scoville rating is 1 million (while CR is 2.2 million).
What about Louisiana hot sauce? How hot is it?
This is what I got into in a recent article I published. In it, I looked at whether Scoville ratings are accurate and whether Louisiana hot sauce is hotter than Franks. I even revealed what makes Louisiana hot sauce different.

Which Dave’s Insanity Hot Sauce is hottest?
Dave’s Gourmet Ultimate Insanity Hot Sauce is the hottest of all Dave’s hot sauces. Red Savina Habaneros are the secret of its incredible heat, and it’s no accident that it bears the word “ultimate” in its name.
It’s not for the faint of heart.
On the product’s Amazon page, the manufacturer offered a chart to help one choose their sauces. “Ultimate” was categorized as “insanely hot.” It’s understandable, seeing as it has Scoville ratings of 250,000.
It’s even hotter than the legendary original Dave’s Insanity Sauce, which has a Scoville rating of 180,000. Dave’s Gourmet Insanity Sauce’s ingredients are red habaneros, hot pepper extract, red chilies, tomato paste, salt, onions, cane vinegar, acetic acid, garlic, vegetable oil, xanthan gum, and citric acid.
