NO.5  Sriracha Sauce

? Not spicy at all, just tasty

This hot sauce was a total surprise. It’s nothing like the ubiquitous “Red Rooster” Sriracha, which is a good thing. Trader Joe’s brand doesn’t have a strong sour flavor. Instead, spicy, sweet, and acidic notes mingle very well for a balanced sauce. It’s a good accompaniment for Asian food like rice and ramen noodles.

The best hot sauce for something spicy and full of flavor is Gator Hammock Swamp Gator Hot Sauce. The complex flavors that make up the spicy sauce include banana, jalapeño, hammock, serrano, and habanero peppers. The vinegar-base sauce is quite spicy but doesnt completely overtake your taste buds so you cant taste anything else youre eating or drinking, which is a definite win in my book.


How many Scoville units is Sriracha?

Heat-wise, it comes in a little bit higher than Mild level. It has an Asian bite to it even though there are no spices in the ingredients that would suggest that cuisine. The flavor profile also works good Mexican cuisine, but it has plenty of uses beyond that.

How is Trader Joe’s Sriracha?

Depending on the crop of peppers used, sriracha can range from 1,000 to 2,500 Scoville units. To put that into perspective, Tabasco sauce runs anywhere between 2,500 and 5,000, while Texas Pete hot sauce is around 750. And habanero pepper contains upwards to 350,000.
