"The Great Sriracha Shortage of 2014 was a tad overblown," writes Cool Material. "With only a month's worth of shipment problems, you probably never even had an issue stocking your shelf. Still, the scare got us thinking, 'Is the classic Huy Fong Foods rooster sauce really the sriracha you should be using anyway?'" So the gents rounded up some of the best brands you can find at supermarkets and specialty shops for the ultimate Thai hot sauce taste test.
Huy Fong Foods now offers free tours of its new 650,000-square-foot factory in Irwindale, CA. (9am and 3pm; Monday to Friday. Visitors must call 626.286.8328 to schedule an appointment.)
