TRUFF, the luxury truffle condiment brand, has collaborated with Lucasfilm to introduce Star War Dark Side Hot Sauce in celebration of May the 4th aka Star Wars Day 2024. They describe it as “a meticulously-crafted blend inspired by the menacing nature and powerful mystique of Darth Vader.” They also note that this is the hottest hot sauce that they’ve ever produced, combining ghost peppers with notes of black winter truffles.

For starters, the packaging for TRUFF’s Darth Vader hot sauce is eye-catching. Panels on the oversized collectible box open to reveal a matte back 6oz bottle topped with a Darth Vader helmet cap. Honestly, the quality of this packaging we would expect to see with a high-end perfume or maybe a watch – not a condiment. But what about the contents?

TRUFF sent us a sample to try, and the verdict is that this stuff is delicious but the level of heat seems far from the claim of 800,000-1M Scoville Heat Units (SHU) listed on the box. Honestly, it didn’t seem much hotter than the average bottle of Tabasco. That suits me just fine though – I’m not one of those people that wants to sweat while I eat. Flavor is what I’m after, and I thoroughly enjoyed the fairly intense truffle flavor that’s present in this sauce. It also has a super creamy texture.

If you want to try a bottle for yourself, Star Wars Dark Side hot sauce will be available starting today, May 1st here at the TRUFF website and here on Amazon priced at $39.99. Note that this is a limited edition flavor, so when it’s gone it’s gone. You can check out more Star Wars Day product releases right here.
