We’ve just gotten back from our first cruise. Besides some great memories and a mild sunburn, I came home with 4 new hot sauces.
3 Bahamian Hot Sauces and 1 from Georgia
We’ve just returned home for a week long trip to Florida and a 4-day cruise to the Bahamas with 10 of our friends, including my ex-roommate and good bud, Patrick, and his wife.
In the Bahamas I was hoping to finds some small, local, freshly-made hot sauces to buy and bring home. I didn’t.
Since we were on a cruise, we docked in the “tourist” areas of the island, near Freeport and Nassau, and only had a few hours to visit before we had to be back on-board. We were, naturally, surrounded by souvenir shops (Bahamas shot glasses, little Bahamas License plates and Bahamas Snow Globes (???) abound) , jewelry stores and “tropically-themed” chain restaurants (Margaritaville, Senior Frogs – all of which were PACKED, by the way). The hot sauce pickings were slim for a chili-head like me and all I could find in the shops were “tourist” sauces. I wish we’d had the time and means to deeper into the island where we may have found better hot sauce choices (as well as better food and a more authentic version of the island culture.)
I did pick up 3 bottles. Why not? They were all made in the Bahamas. None of 3 sauces are especially interesting. But it was fun to buy and try them.
3 Bahamian Hot Sauces
- Hot Sauce #192 – Kellman’s All-Bahamian Rabbit Hot Sauce
- Hot Sauce #193 – Conchy Joe’s Inferno Pepper Sauce
- Hot Sauce #194 – Plantation Hill Bahamas Julie Mango Hot Pepper Tonic
Instead of describing the lackluster sauces, here are a few pictures from our cruise that are more interesting.

On the way home from Florida, we stayed overnight in beautiful Savannah, GA.
There was a little hand-written sign beside the cash register reading “If you like it spicy…” or some such “Try Felipe’s Secret Sauce Hot Sauce.” So naturally I had to get some.
It had minced jalapeños and maybe other peppers, vinegar and spices. It’s more of a relish than a hot sauce and not very hot – but it is quite good.
