Temperatures are rising, and it’s not just because of the summer heat.

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, condiment-with-a-kick Mike’s Hot Honey is releasing an Extra Hot version of their beloved chili pepper-infused honey. While true to the brand’s signature slow-building heat, spice lovers will no doubt appreciate the added bite. (We tried it and it really hits the back of your throat, but only a second or two after the sweet liquid gold leaves your mouth.) This is the first new product launch since founder Mike Kurtz started making his original honey for hungry customers as a pizzaiolo at Paulie Gee's in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

“Since we launched 10 years ago, we've purposely kept our product line very focused, says Kurtz. “We've always believed in doing one thing really well and our line extensions to date have almost exclusively been new pack sizes of our original product for different usage occasions. But launching an Extra Hot flavor has long been a goal of ours and something our fans have been asking for.”

While Mike's Hot Honey is perfect for drizzling on pizza, you really haven’t lived until you’ve tried it on — well — everything. Made from 100% pure honey, chili peppers and vinegar, it works as a great substitute for honey or hot sauce in recipes when you want a little kick. The ideal balance of sweetness and heat, it’s also an excellent addition to ice cream, many dressings, marinades, pasta sauces and barbecue sauce. Personally, we can’t wait to use the Extra Hot flavor on fried chicken, corn bread, and ribs.

To grab a bottle (or five), you can find Mike's Hot Honey Extra Hot online this week on the brand's website or on Amazon.
