This summer just got a whole lot hotter. Tabasco, makers of everyone's favorite go-to hot sauce, just released two new styles, one of which is the hottest the brand has ever produced. Tabasco's new Scorpion Sauce, now the hottest sauce available from Tabasco by far, combines mouth-watering scorpion peppers--consistently one of the hottest peppers in the world, with a rating of 1,500,000 Scoville units and above--with a blend of guava, pineapple and a dash of Original Tabasco Sauce, for a tangy, but still scorching hot sauce with a hint of Caribbean sweetness.
Nearly 20 times hotter than Original Red Sauce, this new Scorpion Sauce is nothing to be scoffed at. You might as well load up on your dairy products right now if you're planning on dunking something into this insane untamed heat. The limited edition condiment won't be around forever, though, so buck up soon!
For something less tongue-toasting than the Scorpion hot sauce and more flavorful, Tabasco's new smoky, Roasted Red Pepper Sauce is made with slow-roasted Tabasco peppers along with onions, basil and, of course, vinegar. It wouldn't be that classic flavor and tangy sauce without the vinegar, after all.
If your taste buds are ready to give this small-batch sauce a try, go slow. Those Scoville heat units are nothing to play around with, and we can already imagining the heat level of spicy foods with this added to it!
A born-and-bred Louisiana company, Tabasco of McIlhenny Company on Avery Island, defines the best of small business success. Named for their use of tabasco peppers specifically in the original recipe, Tabasco was first produced in 1868 by Edmund McIlhenny. He distributed his hot sauce in used cologne bottles.
And one more fun fact about Tabasco? It's one of the few American companies that has a royal warrant of appointment, meaning they directly supply Queen Elizabeth II with their delicious sauces. Think the Queen will give the Scorpion Sauce a try?
