The description of the sauce on their site pretty much sums it up:
Like the Loch Ness Monster or gravity, the existence of a gentle-finishing habanero pepper sauce has scientists baffled. Made from a rare, mild breed of habaneros grown specifically for us, Minor Threat draws its inspiration from the legendary West Indies’ mustard- and mango-based habanero sauces, only it mysteriously priviledges the pepper’s fruitiness over its notoriously overwhelming heat. We may never fully understand Minor Threat’s ability to take sandwiches, grilled meats, corn chips or eggs to the next level without annihilating your esophagous in the process, but don’t let science’s shortcomings get in the way of your slathering habits.

Need a new summer drink? How about the Beer Float made with Hoppin’ Frog Oatmeal-Imperial Stout & Vanilla Ice Cream. (via the Kitchn)
Summer also means Lobster Rolls. Chef/Owner Paul Liebrant of Corton tried Lobster Rolls from Ditch Plains, Ed’s Lobster Bar, the Lobster Place, Lure Fishbar, Mary’s Fish Camp, Pearl Oyster Bar, and Urban Lobster Shack to decide the best Lobster Roll in downtown NYC . (Via Grub Street)
While we are on summer foods, you should know that Pastry chef Nick Morgenstern of General Greene in Brooklyn is rolling out an ice cream cart which can be found there and at spots around the city like Resto and Irving Mill. Ice cream flavors include burnt honey vanilla, chocolate banana peanut, salted hazelnut gianduja, bourbon raisin and brown butter pecan, while yogurt choices are blackberry, strawberry rhubarb, raspberry rosewater and mango.
