During Dustin Poirier’s clash with Michael Chandler at UFC 281, the UFC announced an exclusive partnership with Dustin Poirier’s Louisiana Hot Sauces to become the official Official Hot Sauce Of The UFC on a multi-year deal.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on Dustin’s new Creole Maple Hot Sauce for a taste-testing and review.

The company powering Poirier’s Louisiana Style hot sauces, Heartbeat Hot Sauce Co, sent me a box of the selection to try. You can learn more about the new sauce below or jump straight to the taste test.

Dustin Poirier’s new hot sauce is the Creole Maple flavor. This new sauce fits right between the Original and K.O. hot sauces that Dustin launched in 2020 and 2021, respectively.

The Creole Maple edition sits between previously introduced sauces with a medium heat level that combines the savory character of the heated Creole seasoning and the sweetness from a generous addition of Ontario maple syrup.

This third addition brings Poirier’s hot sauce collection to complete a delicious trifecta, offering something for everyone’s taste buds and heat tolerance.

Creole Maple brings together inspiration from both sides of the partnership between Louisiana, in the Creole seasoning, and Ontario, in the Maple syrup inside.

Dustin has a longstanding passion for cooking, making his partnership with Heartbeat Hot Sauce Co a unique way to combine two passions:

“I have always been passionate about cooking and I am so thankful that this partnership with Heartbeat developed because it has allowed me to learn more in a hands-on way from two experts in the field”

After offering some seriously hot variants of hot sauce with his fans, there was a desire to get a balance of sweetness and heat for middle-heat tastes:

“By going sweet and savory with this new flavor, the Poirier Louisiana Style trio set now offers a versatile hot sauce for everyone’s tastes.”

I personally tried the taste of the newer Creole Maple hot sauce and here’s my verdict.

I loved the taste of this hot sauce, considering I am someone who has a mid-range preference for heat.

It’s very immediately sweet once it settled around your tongue and then a few moments later you get that kick of heat to remind you that it has some spice behind it.

Whether it’s the sweetness or the chillies, it overall adds up to wanting to keep coming back for more and to keep tasting it.

It’s a flavor that works really well with meats that suit sweetness, a great alternative to BBQ flavors for flame grilled meats like chicken or a beef brisket (my favorite).

I gave the sauce to my family to try and they loved it too, in fact they used it all before I could get much of it for myself. That must mean it’s a popular flavor, though!

So altogether, I give the Creole Maple hot sauce a rating of 4.7/5 because its tasty and packs a devilish heat.

Although there is some welcome sweetness to this sauce, I still think it’s intended for chillie lovers because I’d rate the spice level around 3.5/5.

The partnership began in 2019 when Heartbeat Hot Sauce, Dulcedo, Heatonist, and Dustin Poirier came together to develop a fresh taste of a classic Louisiana hot sauce.

The intention was to pay tribute to Dustin’s home roots and his own passion for cooking.

Developed and taste-tested over several months, they released their first partnership sauce, the Louisiana Style Hot Sauce, in December 2020.

Who is Heartbeat Hot Sauce?

Heartbeat Hot Sauce is a Canadian sauce house in Thunder Bay, Ontario. They pride themselves on delivering high-quality hot sauces using locally sourced ingredients.

The company was founded by the husband and wife duo Al Bourbouhakis and Nancy Shaw. The pair began tinkering with hot sauce creations at Nancy’s restaurant and soon realized they had a winning formula for tasty recipes.

Soon, they began bottling their signature hot sauces for retailers. Now, Heartbeat distributes squeezy bottles of their hot sauces all over the globe, which are loved by many.

The Heartbeat Hot Sauce selection has even appeared on the popular YouTube show Hot Ones. It’s the “show with hot questions and even hotter wings” where celebrities take on an increasingly spicier chicken wing during an interview with host Sean Evans.

Not only does Heartbeat offer Dustin Poirier’s selection of Louisiana-inspired hot sauce, but many other flavors, including Pineapple Habanero, Jalapeno, Scorpion, and many more.
