New Tabasco Flavor is Rocoto

From the Andes to the Middle East to Avery Island, Louisiana comes new TABASCO® Rocoto Pepper Sauce.

Flavors from the Andes, the Middle East and Louisiana combine to produce the new TABASCO® Rocoto Pepper Sauce. This vibrant sauce is inspired by Baharat, a traditional Middle Eastern spice blend featuring cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, black pepper and nutmeg. By mixing these spices with fresh Peruvian rocoto peppers, maple syrup and a dash of TABASCO® Original Red Sauce, we get a Rocoto Pepper Sauce that is zesty and aromatic with a hint of sweetness — a welcome addition to any global pantry. source: tabasco.com

 

Ingredients:

Rocoto pepper, distilled vinegar, maple syrup, water, dried red bell pepper, salt, spices, dried sweet olive flower, TABASCO brand Pepper Sauce (distilled vinegar, red pepper, salt), lemon powder.

Available on Wed Nov 20th, 2019, this special edition flavor from the McIlhenny family sells for $14.99 for a 5 ounce bottle.

I just placed an order for the Rocoto as well as a few more items.

We’ll report back when we’ve had a chance to try the sauce.

Meanwhile, here’s where you can order a bottle or two for yourself!

Huy Fong Gets Day in Court

A Rooster takes a Farmer to court. Who will win?

Huy Fong Foods is finally getting it’s day in court. The maker of the iconic Sriracha Sauce with the rooster on the label, and bright green cap, is suing it’s long time pepper grower Underwood Ranches for $1.46 million.

Huy Fong Sriracha
We kinda like Huy Fong products!

Underwood Ranches is counter-suing Huy Fong for $20 million in losses over their “break-up”.

Their lawyers presented opening remarks to a Jury in a Ventura County Superior Court on Wednesday June 12th, 2019.

Like a nasty divorce battle, their break-up began in 2016.

That’s when Huy Fong founder David Tran claimed Underwood Ranch’s owner Craig Underwood abruptly ended their 28 year relationship by refusing to grow any more jalapeño peppers for Huy Fong and therefore owes him $1.46 million from an overpayment to the farm.

In typical “he said/she said” fashion Underwood claims Huy Fong owes them $20 million in losses incurred.

Like any “divorce” case, there are MANY more fascinating details on each side. Head over to the Ventura County Star website for their in-depth breaking story in this trial.

According to the VC Star, David Tran began testifying Wednesday and will continue on Thursday.

Hopefully, having a jury trial will benefit Mr. Tran and Huy Fong Foods greatly, as there are bound to be fans of his Sriracha sauce in the jury box.

Happy Anniversary to us! We started HotSauceDaily back on April 01, 2007… twelve years ago!

While i’ve officially retired from the US Postal Service last July… I’m not ready to retire HSD just yet.

Thanks for hanging with us all these years. Keep reading along, and follow us on YouTube.com/hotsaucedaily and Instagram.com/hotsaucedaily !

I’ve never figured out the guy with the helmet. Guess he was a motorcycle cop?

Welcome Back

Hi, Welcome back!

No, not you… me!

Yea, I kind of took the summer off from blogging. Life, family, work, the job – it all sucked me in and kept me so busy that I had so little time to blog.

Ok, I had NO time to blog.

HotSauceDaily.com has always been a labor of love and a hobby. And I do love sharing things with you, the readers.

I did publish a few new videos on our YouTube channel here:

https://www.youtube.com/user/hotsaucedaily

And I’ve really been into Instagram. It’s so easy and fun to post to.

Hot Sauce makers take note.

In the past 6 months, I’ve purchased more products via Instagram than on any other social platform, that’s why Buy followers on instagram is a great step for your business, and you can do it from different sites online.

If you are not on Instagram… you are missing out on sales! Do I need to repeat that? Instagram is huge for sales and referrals!!!

I really appreciate you hanging in there with me, dear readers.

Next up… a few posts about Maryland based companies.

See you soon!

NYC Hot Sauce Expo 2017 Celebrates 5th Anniversary April 22 – 23

The NYC Hot Sauce Expo Celebrates Its 5th Anniversary

New York’s own High River Sauces proudly presents the 5th Annual New York City Hot Sauce Expo on April 22nd & 23rd 2017.

2017-nyc-expo-banner

The NYC Expo will feature up to 45 artisanal hot sauce makers from all over the United States and as far as Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand and South America. The NYC Hot Sauce Expo has grown into an International Hot Sauce celebration. Witness the action packed event with hot sauce tastings, eating challenges, spicy food vendors, craft beer, spicy cocktails and plenty of odd ball entertainment for the whole family.

The NYC Hot Sauce Expo will feature the Bloody Mary Mix-Down National Championship. Winners from AZ, CA & the Portland Hot Sauce Expo’s will be flown in to compete again NYC’s top mixologist in this ultimate Bloody Mary Mix-Down. Winner will receive $2500 cash and the beautiful Stoli Vodka Bloody Mary trophy.

Think you have what it takes to be crowned the Guinness Book of World Records – Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper Pepper Eating Contest, the World’s Hottest Pepper. The 2016 NYC Expo we witnessed Wayne Algenio smash the record by eating 119 grams in 60 seconds. Now the current record is held by Greg Foster when he ate 120 grams at the AZ Hot Sauce Expo on November 13th. Will the record come back to NYC?
