    What's your hot sauce?

    I put hot sauce on everything. Eggs, pizza, macaroni & cheese, popcorn, fried fish, french fries, my veggies. You name it. I've been doing it for years. Its one of those things that I would have to have if I was stranded on a desert island.

    When I was in high school and college I was a Tabasco man. But I've been using Louisiana brand for about the last 10 years. I think it's got the best taste and kick. I've bought knock-offs that come in the same oddly shaped bottle, but it's not the same.

    So I'm asking those who find themselves in the same predicament, a life in addiction to hot sauce: What's your brand?

    Frank's? Crystal? Tabasco? Sriracha?

    Why?

    I'm not looking for this to degrade in to a one-up-fest about who's had the hottest sauce one time.. I just am interested in what fellow mid-westerners' habits and brands are when it comes to hot sauce. I am talking everyday use here.

    Frank's when large quantities are needed, such as wings or dips, and Cholula for every day items.

    Re: What's your hot sauce?

    Franks and Sriracha. Franks just has that traditional hot sauce flavor plus a little heat. Sriracha has that great garlic flavor and the heat is a little more noticeable. I love both on pizza.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    I forgot about Cholula. I like this one too but I usually only use it on Mexican food.

    Re: What's your hot sauce?

    Yucatan Sunshine. It's not super-hot, but moreso than regular Tabasco. Plus, there are tiny bits of carrots in it, so I can convince my wife that I'm eating healthy. Very tasty:

    Cholula and Louisiana Hot Sauce are my favorites, I can put them on almost anything.

    Tapatio. Not the hotest stuff in the world, but has the best flavor of any hot sauce i've had

    I'm a Louisiana hot sauce man as well. The burrito joint in the MU got me hooked on it.

    I love the stuff, I just find the flavor tends to steal the limelight a little more than other sauces.

    Interesting fact, I thought the Rooster was a long standing Vietnamese thing. Some guy from LA invented it as a style of sriracha and now it's the world's best seller.

    Sidney's hot sauce. Can only be found on the island of Anguilla. Oh, and my house. I have 3 bottles of the stuff. This Anguillian dude makes the stuff in his little blue house.
