I bought a couple of these sauces from Lidl, a Habanero and a piri piri. The ingredients are good, basically vinegar, salt and chillis, plus some natural,flavours, nothing artificial, the only cheat is a natural thickener. They appear to use brewed vinegar, not the industrial acetic acid. The habanero has about 15% pepper, the piri piri has 30% pepper. So not as much pepper as some sauces, but better than most of the high priced junk with fancy labels you see in the supermarkets.
I rather like the habanero, it is quite hot, on a par with Encona, with a much better flavour than Encona, which has a distinct acetic acid taste. West Indian sauces do usually have more pepper in them, and more habanero flavour.
The piri piri is surprisingly hot, with a distinct lemon flavour. It also contains garlic, but it is subtle.
Each bottle cost about ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£1, and is Encona sized.
I like these sauces, they taste good, the ingredients are good and they are inexpensive. They are not the best sauces I have had, but they are better than most readily available ones. I did expect them to be decent, in my view Lidl foods often taste better than similar products from Waitrose et al.
