Consumers Rate New ¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® Mexican-Style Hot Sauce #1

New blend of Mexican spices, sea salt and sautéed garlic adds a unique, spicy flavor

Sabor (¡Sabor!) by Texas Pete – Mexican-style Hot Sauce

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Answering consumer demand for spicy, flavorful condiments, TW Garner Food Co. has launched new ¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® Mexican-Style Hot Sauce. The launch comes after consumer taste tests found the new hot sauce superior in flavor and aroma compared to leading Mexican-style hot sauces.

¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® offers a uniquely bold and balanced combination of Mexican spices, sea salt, sautéed garlic and aged peppers that is ideal for any meal or cuisine. The word “sabor,” in the Spanish language, means “flavor”—and thus, the new hot sauce is aptly named.

“The growth in demand for spicier foods and consumer requests for a hot sauce inspired by Mexican flavors were behind the development of our latest innovation,” said Ann Riddle, Chief Executive Officer for TW Garner. “¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® is one of the best flavors we have ever created. I look forward to sharing it with those who are ready for a new flavor among hot sauces.”

Steve DeCorte, Executive Vice President of Sales for TW Garner, added, “¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® includes premium ingredients that have been crafted to make any meal taste even better—and Mexican foods taste extraordinary. In an independent consumer taste test, ¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® was the most favored hot sauce out of all four brands of Mexican-style hot sauces tested.”

The innovative, easy-pour opening on five-ounce bottles of ¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® makes adding the sauce to any dish easy. The distinctive label and yellow cap emblazoned with a bold logo also make it easy to find the new hot sauce on supermarket shelves nationwide.

“The Texas Pete® brand has been a signature of quality and flavor for nearly 90 years,” said Glenn Garner, the company’s Chief Marketing Officer from the team. “That is why it was important to let loyal customers of our brand know that ¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® is now part of the Texas Pete® family of outstanding sauces.”

The company leveraged its brand in the wake of its highly successful launch of CHA! by Texas Pete® Sriracha Sauce in 2014, which continues to grow in sales and preference by consumers.

You can expect to see ¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® appear on the shelves of your favorite supermarket in the coming weeks and months, as distribution of the new hot sauce is currently under way.

Top Products from 2015

Top products reviewed in 2015

We picked out 8 of our favorite products from our 2015 reviews.

In alphabetical order they are:

Geddes Farms Ghost Pepper Honey

Served up in a classic honey jar, this 16 ounce bottle of liquid gold combines the purest honey with the fiery heat of the Ghost Pepper.

Island Sauce Datil Pepper Sauce

We love the Datil Pepper sauce profile, and Island Sauce Company’s version is packed full of the Datil pepper flavor. It’s also very unique in that it’s a very thin sauce – almost like a glaze.

Louisiana Brand Wing Kit

We kicked off our 6th Annual Week of Wings series with the Louisiana Brand Wing Kit – featuring Louisiana Brand Chicken Wing Seasoning and Louisiana Brand Original Wing Sauce. From our Week of Wings 6 – Day 1

Lucky Dog Hot Sauce Brown Label

Lucky Dog Hot Sauce’s newest offering called Brown Label also has the amusingly long name of “Ridiculously Tasty Mustard Chipotle Hot Sauce”.

Men Paw Gourmet Hot Sauce

It turns out that this sauce is amazing. Amazingly delicious that is. Yes, it’s heavy on the oil content, but that is what makes it so unique for a hot sauce.

Moe Mountain Hot Sauce

Made with a blend of natural ingredients like apple cider vinegar, cumin and cocoa powder, and coupled with the famous Bhut Jolokia Pepper (Ghost Pepper), Moe Mountain Hot Sauce brings its own unique flavor to the hot sauce world.

Sweet & Spicy Alaskan Umami Sauce

Sweet & Spicy Alaskan Umami Sauce is a super thick and sticky sweet sauce. One of the most unusual sauces we’ve had lately, it doesn’t just pour out of the bottle – you need a knife or spoon to ladle it out.

Ugly Baby Sweet Hot Sauce

Two or 3 spoonfuls and 4 tacos later, I was wowed. This is a delicious sauce …

Bonus Links! Two more very unique products from 2015!

The Vortex indirect Grilling ring

Designed for use in any Kettle or Kamado style grill, the Vortex makes grilling super crispy wings easy.

FuegoBox Hot Sauce of the Month Club is a premier “Hot Sauce of the Month” service. Each box is filled with gourmet hot sauces.
