Like a thief in the night, the Tabasco company has quietly created its own Sriracha sauce. Here’s the thing: It’s not being promoted at all, and Tabasco says it’s for a limited time only, but we have our suspicions—especially given the problems at Huy Fong Foods, the company that pretty much all Americans associate with Sriracha.
Tabasco says its Premium Sriracha Sauce “is a masterful blend of spicy, sweet and savory flavors that is authentic to South East Asian cuisine.” Put it on noodles, soups, or, dare we say, your mother’s shameful meatloaf; basically anything that needs a little kick of sweet chili and garlic. Tabasco brand Sriracha is currently only available the Tabasco Country Store at $4.99 for a 15 oz. bottle, but if Huy Fong can’t get its issues worked out with the folks of Irwindale, California, over the smell of hot sauce hanging in the air, Tabasco might just be able to make a power play here.
