Newest Sauce Features Nine of the Hottest Peppers for Next-Level Spice and Flavor

For more than two decades, Buffalo Wild Wings has asked guests, “Can you handle the heat?” with its quintessential Blazin’ Challenge. This summer, the Blazin’ Challenge is kicking it up a notch with a brand-new flavor for spice seekers to try if they dare: Blazin’ Knockout.

True to form, Blazin’ Knockout is sure to knock out a fair share of competitors with its recipe including nine of the hottest peppers like Devil’s Breath, Carolina Reaper, Scorpion, Ghost, Habanero, Red and Green Jalapenos, Chile de Arbol and Cayenne.

Spicy food lovers and B-Dubs fans who want to put their taste buds to the test can attempt the Blazin’ Challenge, where they’ll try to finish 10 Blazin’ Knockout wings in five minutes or less with no water or napkins. All participants will receive a Blazin’ Challenge headband and a scoop of ice cream to cool things down at the end.

Blazin’ Rewards members who complete the challenge in their local sports bar will have their name added to the Blazin’ Wall of Fame and will be rewarded with 1,000 Blazin’ Rewards points in their account to be used during future trips to Buffalo Wild Wings. Bring a friend and compete to see who will come out on top and leave with bragging rights!

For guests who aren’t up to the challenge but still want to try the hottest sauce on our menu at their own pace, Blazin’ Knockout is officially a new member of Buffalo Wild Wings’ collection of 26 flavorful sauces and seasonings. If you aren’t a spice fan, B-Dubs has 25 other delicious flavors with a full range of flavors to satisfy any craving.

“At Buffalo Wild Wings, we are all about the sauce. We’ve debuted five new sauces on the menu this year – four limited-time-only flavors and now Blazin’ Knockout,” said Tristan Meline, Chief Marketing Officer at Buffalo Wild Wings. “Made with nine of the hottest peppers, Blazin’ Knockout is the fiercest sauce in our stacked lineup for our guests who really love heat.”
