How Many Scovilles Is Buffalo Wild Wings Habanero Sauce?

There are a variety of people that exist when it comes to handling spice. Are you a person whose mouth salivates at simply the first whiff of a hot pepper? Do you watch Sean Evan’s ‘Hot Ones’ show and think to yourself, “Huh, that’d be no biggy.”

Or do you run to grab a fire extinguisher at just a dab of your common hot sauce? Of course, we can’t forget about our folks in the middle: the ones who like a kick but with balance – and what better sauce provides this than the Buffalo Wild Wings Habanero.

Measuring at 125,000 Scoville Heat Units, the BWW Mango Habanero sauce is a two-in-one package. Not only are you able to feel the heat, but it is also sweet to.

You might want to turn the fan on because this article is about to delve into some spicy territories.

The Taste of the Mango Habanero Sauce

You have the burn of the peppers dancing in your mouth on one side softened by the fruity tang of the mango on the other. The mango provides just the right amount of balance to the pepper’s spice without being overwhelmingly sweet.

If you’re looking to impress someone by showing them that you can handle your heat, then this is the sauce to go for.

Just How Hot Is The Habanero Paper?

Hot enough that they can’t be touched without gloves. The habanero pepper has a heat index of about 150,000 – 350,000 Scoville units. One accidental contact with these and your skin will be irritated to no end. So unless you enjoy getting burns or are a sucker for pain, we’d recommend you to put safety first, second, and peppers third.

The Blazin’ Challenge

With just 6 minutes to eat 12 of their spiciest wings, this challenge is the Buffalo Wild Wings’ spiciest contest yet! The hottest wing measures at 350,000 Scoville units –  so if you find your stomach lining precious, we’d suggest backing away from this one. 

What Is The Scoville Scale?

Now all this time we’ve been going on about ‘Scoville Heat Units’ –  and you might be wondering, just how good is this measurement? Backed up by some science, we’d say it’s a pretty fair measure of how spicy a pepper is.

What the Scoville scale does is that it looks at the concentration of capsaicin (the element causing our teary eyes and runny noses) in a pepper. The more capsaicinoids found in a pepper, the higher its ranking is on the Scoville scale.


Like our beloved Hannah Montana would say, with the Buffalo Wild Wings Habanero Sauce, you can have the best of both worlds! Not only do you get the rich flavor of the mango, but couple that with the heat of the habanero pepper, and you’ve got yourself a perfect sauce for your wings.

So whether it’s game night or date night, we’d urge you to give this sauce a go – but fair warning, keep your tissues and water close by.
