Watch TimeScar take on a Hot Ones inspired challenge. With a rock and metal trivia twist.

The Sauces

We went from mild to spicy using a variety of sauces from Hot Ones (aside from Truff). We wanted to create a nice spicy wing tasting experience to complement our rock and metal trivia.

The Last Dab | APOLLO2,000,000
Hellfire | Fear This679,000
Da’Bomb Beyond Insanity135,600
Torchbearer | Garlic Reaper Sauce116,000
High River Sauces | Cheeba Gold25,300
Popp Sauce | Paddy O’s Potion8,800
Heartbeat Hot Sauce | Habanero4,000
Angry Goat | Hippy Dippy Green2,300

According to Aside from Truff which we used the ratings from

Angry Goat

This sauce was really good on the wings. It had a kind of sweet flavor but didn’t really have of a punch at all.


My personal addition to the challenge. I was introduced to this by a good friend who shares similar tastes and I couldn’t resist adding it to the lineup. It’s a slightly sweet, earthy, and mildly spicy sauce.


In general, a great and versatile sauce. It’s not my favorite but I would buy it again.

Paddy O’s Potion

A favorite among the band and our friends. It has a very unique flavor I think you need to taste to understand.


I am very fond of scotch bonnets so the flavor for me was on point. Another favorite of the group probably because it blended flavors so well.


This is where we started to feel a little bit of heat but the sauce still had quite a bit of flavor as well.

Da Bomb

“Da’ Bomb is not the bomb” is I think the best description from the video. This purpose of this sauce seems to be if you wanted to be “that person” who’s only personality trait is messing with others. Probably one of the reasons it’s been on Hot Ones so long.


Although still not a really fun sauce, it still had quite a bit of flavor. Although very spicy I feel like this has a purpose other than just being spicy.

Hot Ones – Last Dab Apollo

Probably one of the best sauces for the lineup. Reason being, it was perfect for a wing challenge. Spicy enough to be a real challenge but flavorful enough to fulfill it’s purpose as a sauce you would actually use.

Hot Ones Wing ChallengeThe Wings

For the chicken wings we used Bdubs because we didn’t want to cook.

We ordered them extra crispy, and they were exactly what you’d expect…… Cold since they had been sitting out for a while.

Veggie / Vegan(ish) Gluten Free Wings

The vegan(ish) wings were homemade and turned out pretty good. I’m calling them vegan(ish) because they contained eggs.

I don’t think they will win any awards but I wouldn’t be opposed to making or eating them again.

Here’s a quick breakdown of what I did. I cooked some Gardein Meatless Ground (because it was the only gluten free option we had locally available) and mixed it with ground psyllium husk, xanthan gum, veggie stock, eggs, avocado oil, and seasonings.

If there’s any interest in the recipe please leave a comment on the video and I’m happy to share a basic run down of what I did.
