I will break this down into the 4 groupings we have listed out on the website.
MILD MEDIUM HOT WTF?!?!
Mild = 0-2 on the Dragon Scale. Truly very mild. The Holiday Blend recipe has no hot peppers of any kind. Cinnamon is the warmest of the ingredients. Dragon Snaps does have a touch of wasabi. There is no heat in these 2 recipes. No need to have any milk, crackers or sour cream on stand-by.
MEDIUM = 3-6 on the Dragon Scale. Most folks can handle these recipes. You can feel some heat, but it will not cause any mental collapse.
HOT = 7-10 on the Dragon Scale. Oh, I promise the heat will be very present. This level is beyond the "Supermarket" definition of hot. Most folks can still handle these recipes. However, the heat does linger and some folks may want some milk, or even a popcicle near by.
WTF = 11+ You have now walked straight into the Dragons Lair. The chili's used in these recipes will include Ghost peppers, Red Savina Habanero (which hotter than the normal habanero), Carolina Reaper and Birds Eye. And less sugar (the sugar tames the heat - less sugar less taming). You will want to wash your hands after eating. Then you will want to wash them again. No seriously, wash your hands. A lot!
What peppers do you use for your recipes?
That will depend on the recipe.
There is Horseradish, wasabi, Ancho. Ginger, New Mexico, Habanero, Bhut Jolokia (ghost pepper), cinnamon, alspice, clove, nutmeg, lemongrass, lemon pepper, thai, cayenne and many many more.
If you have an allergy to any particular pepper, you should send us an email and find out which recipes you should avoid.
What nuts do you offer as a base?
This is a new business for us. We are small but growing.
To keep things simple for us and the prices as low as possible for for our fan base, currently we are only offering 3nut bases
Almonds Cashews Hazelnuts\Filters (50/50 blend)
Eventually we will add other nuts for you enjoyment.
How many different recipes do you have to offer?
There are well over 20 recipes on the cookbook. And several more ideas in the works
As we are just starting out we decided to place 8 of the most popular up into the store. We are now offering 15 of the best recipes known to mankind (well, we think so any way).
Things in the works (recipes with this as a base: Peanutbutter Lime\Lemon Garlic Recipes with no sugar TexMex
Other items in the works: Rubs and seasonings. Just imaging a "Smoky Thai" rub or an "Indelicate Don" seasoning (talk about a SPICY BURGER!)
What if I want to make a special request for a specific nut base?
We fully understand sometimes our fan base want\need different options.
The best option would be to use the "Contact Us" page and send us an email.
We cannot accommodate all requests, but we are more than happy to do what we can.
Where can I we find your product?
Right now - only online. We are currently working on arrangements to start selling our product at Farmers and Saturday markets around the Boise\Meridian, ID metropolitan area.
What makes your product better than other nut roasters?
It is true - there are a lot of other roasters out there. And most if not all are good in their own right.
Many only sell at events and trades shows. They will give you a great product in on open cone container. You are looking at 4oz for around 8 bucks. Several roasters make their recipes using egg whites and\or artificial flavorings.
We here at Sweet Dragon only use raw or lightly roasted nuts, sugar and natural spices. There are absolutely no artificial flavors or preservatives in any recipe. Oh, all the recipes at Sweet-Dragon cannot be found anywhere else. And we always sell our product in resealable bags.
This way you can have a handful, close the bag and keep on doing whatever activity you are enjoying. Keep a bag in your desk at work. In the saddle bag of your bike or horse. Your arm console of your car. In pocket during hikes or out while your fishing. You can even walk them through airport security and enjoy them when flying to destinations unknown. You could climb mount Everest and eat them on top of the world.
Just like Green eggs and Ham, you can take and enjoy them anywhere!
