Secret Aardvark is Real Food.
It’s a choice we made from the very beginning: to use fresh ingredients like peppers, tomato, carrot, onion, and garlic instead of powders. No fillers and no BS. The result? THE FLAVOR THAT KICKS YOU IN THE MOUTH!TM
Habanero Hot Sauce
Learn what dive bar denizens and DIY chefs alike have known for years: THIS is the one sauce to rule them all. The leader of the gang. That goes on any-thing and everything. Mild, sweet tomatoes and carrots melded with spicy habanero peppers. Perfect balance, baby. It’s the People’s Hot Sauce. Pour it on!
Serrabanero Green Hot Sauce
A delicious blend of serrano and green habanero peppers (plus onions, tomatillos, and super-secret spices). Serrabanero is a flavor-forward green hot sauce that delivers tangy, lime brightness and a perfect burn that won’t melt your face. It’s an instant classic that’s sure to become your go-to table sauce.
Smoky Chipotle-Hab Hot Sauce
What do you get when you mix the smokiness of chipotle peppers with the spicy sweet-ness of habaneros? All the flavor and fun you expect from Aardvark! Put it on your tacos, add it to your eggs, or use it as a sassy alternative to BBQ sauce. Be unexpectedly inspired!
Red Scorpion Hot Sauce
This scorpion has a sting! The burn is right up front in this sauce that’s reminiscent of sriracha – but hotter and even tastier. We don’t sacrifice flavor for heat. Roasted tomatoes, carrots, and the fermented sharp sourness of scorpion peppers make for sizzling ooooh-mami. Let your mouth be your guide.
Reaper Smoked Hot Sauce
Reaper heat meets Aardvark flavor. We combine spicy, smoked reaper peppers with applewood smoke and fire-roasted tomatoes. The result is a sauce that’s intense, surprisingly addictive, and utterly Aardvark. Treat your tastebuds to the happiest of burns. Hello, endorphins!
Drunken Garlic Black Bean Sauce
This Asian-inspired marinade and cooking sauce is a deli-cious companion for your favorite protein and a stellar stir fry sauce. Orange juice lends citrusy notes to this sweet-meets-savory, whisky-laced, soy sauce-based, garlicky blend. Drool-worthy gourmet in a bottle, in your kitchen.
Drunken Jerk Jamaican Marinade
Make the dream of instant dinner a reality with this mouth-blasting blend of habanero, thyme, allspice, garlic, onion, soy sauce, plus a nice drunken jolt of dark island rum. It’s a rich, complex jerk sauce right out of the bottle, no fuss—and chicken is just the beginning. Think big.
OUR START: A FAVORITE RESTAURANT SAUCE, BESIDE THE KETCHUP AND MUSTARD

And now we’re in roadhouses, eateries, and groceries nation-wide and in seven other countries, proudly gracing tables where the food matters, but the décor might not.
