Better than Tijuana Mamas
The ingredients are similar, but these are beefier and, I think, just a tad hotter. (I’m reviewing Screamin’ Demons here. Hot Heads are almost as hot, but not as fat as Demons.)
They’re made of a soft more-or-less-meatlike substance rather than proper sausage, but if you’ve had Tijuana Mamas before, you’ll know what to expect. These are a bit harder than TMs but with a similar texture.
Great snack — and if you like spicy flavors the way I do, you’ll also have a good time sucking out the leftover hot vinegar after eating the sausage.
Nutritious? Hell, you’ve got your pork hearts, your vinegar, your pepper extract — that’s three of the basic food groups right there. The only one missing is alcohol, and I understand it’s possible to get that from supplements. 😉
Very not awesome.
The taste wasn’t very good at all, not revolting or anything but I wasn’t enjoying it.
As for heat, depends on the person I would think, I really enjoy spicy stuff and this was about as Hot as
Texas Pete which would be about as low as it gets.
If your like me your going to try it anyways, I’d recommend getting the single package and trying one first before you get a 30 pack in which you will probably be trying to give 29 away. =P
It’s not hard sausage — more like a mushy hot dog with red food coloring added
The heat and tang are good, but the consistency is a bit too soft for me. I’d love them if they were a bit less mushy and didn’t mention the organ meat on the label. Make sure to try one before buying in bulk.
I’m not condemning the product or people who like it. It just wasn’t what I expected. Your mileage may vary.
great deal great product
Hurts So Good!
The Jack Links Hot Heads are good too, and not as hot as these things, but the taste and texture aren’t quite up to the Demons. If you can handle the heat, you’ll probably like these. I would give them a 5 if they weren’t quite so hot. But then I’m eating one as I write this, so maybe I’m especially sensitive right this minute. 🙂
its like loving the smell of your own farts
You can find these at gas stations or convenience stores along with the Tijuana Mama (very similar and slightly better) but they cost a lot more than you can get them here.
Hot Heads make a Comeback!
Well, I recently decided to give them another try. Lo and behold! They’re back to the orginal firmness! And still very tasty too!
Excellent Pickled sausage
Great way to feed your Jack Links Addiction
Exaggerated Spiciness and Too Sour
Good Flavor and Fairly Hot – Highly Recommended!
The texture is consistent with other other pickled sausages I have tried.
