    Julia Willing / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "As a huge hot sauce fan and a lover of all things truffle (honestly, who isn't?), it's safe to say my interest was piqued when I heard about TRUFF. And let me tell you, this sauce did not disappoint. It is, hands down, the king of condiments. Within three days of opening the WHITE TRUFF, I'm down half a bottle. I have it on everything: Eggs, toasties, pasta, pizza, wraps, burgers, smashed avo. I could write an entire essay on why I think it's so incredible, but you really just need to grab a bottle for yourself, so you can understand."
