Nando's To Sell 'Hottest Ever' Peri Peri Sauce In Tesco Stores

If you like your chicken - or anything else - spicy, Nando's is taking up a notch with the launch of its hottest sauce. And the best news is you can take it home.

The new sauce even has a hot-sounding name; Peri-Peri 'Vusa' - which means 'excitement and fire' in Zulu - and claims to test the most tolerant stomachs while also aiming to bring a 'taste of South Africa' to the famous chicken chain.

Vusa will be available to take home from Tesco and is described as: "A combination of African Bird's Eye Chilli, lemon and garlic, in an age-old recipe that will blow your socks off. Get our liveliest, fieriest sauce since time began."

On the Nando's website it says that customers can 'splash, dash, dip or simply cook with it' to add that super spicy intense heat to their meals.

Good news, the sauce is suitable for vegetarians and it's gluten free - so even coeliacs can fill their boots with the fiery goodness.

The actual sauce was launched in restaurants back in 2017, but since then the hottest Nando's sauce people could get in supermarkets was the 'Peri-Peri Extra Hot' - because that's obviously not hot enough right?

But people out there seem to be pretty enthused about the fact they can take home the intensely hot sauce.

One person posted on Twitter: "@NandosUKthank the chicken gods, I've been waiting for so long."

Another said: "This is the best news I've had so far this year."

"Literally the best thing ever," a third commented.

While a fourth person simply tweeted: "Finallllly."

This is probably the most exciting news to leave the legendary chicken restaurant since it announced a Peri-Peri Gravy would launch for the Christmas 2018 menu.

However, the gravy was only available in the restaurant throughout December - with Nando's cutting customers off for the new year.

But, while the gravy isn't available - we're still waiting in hope it'll come back one day - fans of the Peri-Peri flavour can take the Vusa sauce home from selected Tesco stores in the UK and Ireland, in exchange for £2.
