Overall Opinion:

Trappey’s Red Devil Cayenne Pepper Sauce is just average in our opinion.

I mean, if I need hot sauce and nothing is within a mile of the house… I’d use this one.

The sauce is a pink watery color with a red speckling throughout.

Unfortunately, the primary ingredient is distilled vinegar and it gives this sauce an aggressive vinegar smell and bite. Beyond vinegar and a hint of cayenne, there’s not much depth of flavor.

The heat comes more from the vinegar bite than the cayenne peppers.

Sauces with a heavy vinegar content can leave a bitter taste on the tongue… and this was no exception.

In a nutshell, this is alrght to use in a pinch, but I’m not stocking up on it.

Detailed Opinion

Overall Appearance

This sauce is a watery pink color with red speckles throughout.  It’s clearly blended aggressively, and the sauce had no texture or body to it.

Trappey’s Red Devil Cayenne Pepper Sauce is thin due to the high vinegar content.  That makes it good to use in limited quantities… a dash here or there. The color is a pinkish red with red speckles.


It smells strongly of distilled vinegar with maybe a hint of cayenne pepper.

Spice Level/ Heat

Trappey’s Red Devil Cayenne Pepper Sauce isn’t very spicy.

The bite of the sauce comes from the vinegar flavor. There isn’t much heat or burn.

Overall Taste

The taste of this product is predominantly vinegar.  If that’s what you’re looking for, this vinegary sauce will deliver.

Unfortunately, the aggressive vinegar flavor masks the cayenne smell and taste.

It has no depth of flavor and there are no other flavor notes or tastes in this sauce.  If you purely want vinegar, this is it.  For great taste look elsewhere.

Ingredient Analysis

This isn’t going to be a long discussion… this hot sauce has three primary ingredients:  vinegar, cayenne pepper, and salt.

The remaining three ingredients are thickeners and preservatives.

Because the ingredients are so limited, there’s not much to say about adding additional flavors or tastes.

Cooked Taste Test

When we added Trappey’s Red Devil Cayenne Pepper Sauce to cooked chicken and allowed it to cook a bit, we weren’t surprised by what happened.

When the vinegar based sauce hit the hot pan, it started to evaporate, filling the room with a stinging cooked vinegar smell.  The cayenne flavors were heightened a bit… but the overwhelming vinegar smell was a huge turnoff.

If you’re going to cook with this sauce, it needs other ingredients to balance the flavor of the vinegar.


It comes in different sizes.  But the 6 oz bottle costs only $.  That’s extremely inexpensive.


We couldn’t find any guarantees on their website.
