Tropical Zing’s title entices and evokes a fun, tasty sauce offered by the Australian based company; Cobra Chilli. This sauce gets it tropical flair with ginger & pineapple and its Zing from the earthy jalapeno pepper. This sounds like a great combination. Heat Hot Sauce shop is the United States sole distributor and have asked us to try this product.  Come visit the tropics with us via Cobra Chilli.


Fresh pineapple sugar syrup, cider vinegar, lime juice, fresh green jalapeno chilli, ginger, turmeric, salt and pepper are the listed ingredients.

Aroma & Texture;

It took me a couple of seconds to identify, but ginger was the smell that wafted out the open container.  The aroma also has sweetness to it. The texture is thin and fluid.


My first impression is of a sweet sharp earthy flavor with a pineapple finish. The sharpness is from the ginger that is backed up with very gentle warmth from the jalapenos. The pineapple adds a sweetness that rounds out this flavor. This is an interesting flavor. All the flavors of pineapple, ginger, vinegar, jalapeno and ginger can be identified separately with tasting but in the same sentence meld together to form a unique and “Zingy” flavor.


This sauce is mild and will receive one star out of five on the heat meter.


We fired up the barbeque to cook some New York strip steak. A salad and Dutch oven potatoes was the accompaniment. I found myself mixing the salad and Dutch oven scalloped potato with sauce to create a fun and tasty combination. The sweetness from the pineapple and the zesty bite from the ginger added a pleasing and fun food combination. Tropical Zing worked well pairing with these two food items.


We are having a lot of fun trying the Cobra Chilli lineup of sauces. Tropical Zing lives up to its name by delivering a unique and fun sauce. Dare I call it Zingy? Sure. This sauce has a zing with a playful ginger bite and pineapple sweetness. We paired this with salad and potatoes to create tasty accompaniments to our steak dinner. We like it.  You can find Cobra Chilli sauces at Heat Hot Sauce Shop. Heat Hot Sauce shop has very reasonable shipping rates and an awesome ‘Hot Sauce of the Month Club”.
