"I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes with.

The honey, which is found on Amazon and in stores across the country, happens to be paleo and gluten-free, too. And in addition to the peppers and honey, there's a hint of vinegar. That makes it an especially great addition to marinades and glazes for your next cookout.

There are so many ways to enjoy Mike's Hot Honey this summer. Drizzle it on pizza or chicken wings, pair it with cheese and crackers, or even add it to cocktails or tea to kick things up a notch and boost the flavor.

If you're adding to tea, take this user's advice from their review. "If you pair this up with a hot cup of Red Pepper Oolong from Lupicia Teas, you'll have a really spicy cup of tea!"

And there are so many other tips, too. According to more excellent reviews, one user recommends adding it to chocolate cake and coffee, while another likes it drizzled on ice cream and crusty bread or used as a marinade for meats.

You can order the honey in a few different bottles. You can get the 10-ounce easy pour bottle, or you go one half step larger with the 12-ounce squeeze bottle. If you're ready to commit, there's a 24-ounce Chef's Bottle and even a 192-ounce jug (yes, really!). For some sweet heat when you're out of the house, grab a box of the on-the-go squeeze packs. It'll be your new go-to sauce for sure this summer!
