Reviews and Comments:

Some reviews and comments from African Volcano peri peri sauce and marinade users:

Chilli Foundry Review – medium sauce and medium marinade
Hawthorne must be part of team GB Olympic squad as these two products are truly golden in colour and both award winning. African cuisine, but British made.
http://www.chilefoundry.co.uk/2012/08/11/grant-hawthornes-african-volcano-peri-peri/

The Chile Foundry – Hot marinade
.. more exciting and doesn’t have that bland supermarket scent to it.

The Chile Foundry – Hot sauce
..Overall, the combination of flavours in this sauce is excellent.
