Boutique chilli sauce, salsa, and spicy condiment producer The Chilli Factory has launched four new chilli products: Red Belly Venom, Daintree Drizzle, Ballistic Bee Sting, and Cranky Croc Choc.

The new additions will be officially presented at The Chilli Factory’s stand in the Woolworth’s Dome at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Visitors will have the opportunity to try the new range of chilli oils, chilli honey, and chilli chocolate sauce.

Red Belly Venom is a new hot chilli oil, ideal for infusing into stir fries or noodles. A milder chilli oil, Daintree Drizzle can be used as a drizzled salad dressing. Ballistic Bee Sting is a hot chilli honey made from 100 per cent Australian honey infused with locally grown chillies. For those seeking to make desserts spicier, Cranky Croc Choc is a hot chilli chocolate sauce, made for pouring over ice cream.

The Chilli Factory GM Daniel Morgan said The Chilli Factory would be practicing the ‘Responsible Service of Chilli’ at this year’s Easter Show. 

“Naturally, the Chilli Factory attracts long-term chilli fanatics at the Easter Show, but each year we notice an increase in new visitors learning more about the subtle and not so subtle nuances of chilli.

“We ensure visitors are aware of the heat of our chillies before trying them and always suggest a less is more approach is the sensible tasting option for seasoned and newbie chilli tasters alike,” said Morgan.

The Chilli Factory is an Australian-owned company and all products in the new gourmet range are made in Australian using Australian chillies.

With sauces ranging from the mild Numbat Nibble (1700 Scoville Heat Units) to the extreme Scorpion’s Strike (1.27 million Scoville Heat Units), The Chilli Factory has sauces suitable to all Australians’ palates.
