Skip to comments.Why Do Multiple Texas Cities Want to Host the Sriracha Factory...
Posted on 05/03/2014 8:40:32 AM PDT by Extremely Extreme Extremist
Sriracha is a tasty hot sauce manufactured by Huy Fong Foods that, for those with adventurous taste buds, makes everything from scrambled eggs to pizza a finer experience. But the process of manufacturing the substance has been unpopular among residents of Irwindale, California, a small town of about 1,400 just twenty miles outside of Los Angeles. And where Irwindale smells a spicy controversy, Texas cities smell spicy opportunity.
Sriracha hasn't always been based in Irwindalethe company relocated to the city in 2010, after being offered a sweetheart deal to build a $40 million factory. As the Los Angeles Times reported in November:

As I said on a previous thread on this subject, move it to Texas City. No one will notice the difference.
How does Sriracha compare to red Tabasco sauce, my favorite on eggs?
The odor blends in well with the smell of BBQ pits and taco joints.
It’s different .a distinctive flavor more than just hot. Some like it more, some less, than Tobasco or Texas Pete - but if you like Tobasco, you’ll probably at least like Sirarcha.
Don’t park your car down there for very long. It will peel the paint right off. LOL!
I’ve burned the inside of mouth many times
And I’ll keep coming back for more
I wonder what the impact of a move would be with regard to the peppers they use.
Being close to a source maybe a deciding factor for them.

I’ll wait for next month’s George Strait issue but thanks.
Sriracha delenda est.
Tabasco is a traditional Louisiana-style Hot Sauce that has a thin consistency and is made with Tabasco peppers, salt, and vinegar. It is in the mildly hot category.
Sriracha has its origins in SE Asia, has the consistency of ketchup, is made with different peppers and is a bit hotter. The Flavor and aroma are different too.
I love ‘em BOTH! But not at the same time.
Tabasco for eggs, Sriracha for chicken.

Much thicker (almost a paste), less vinegar-y. Closer to Mexican hot sauce but less cumin notes. If you ever got the hot sauce from Panda Express it is very close to that.
I am from L.A. and keep up with the local news there (listen to Internet radio, read the local papers and news outlets).
From the last I heard, 2 people complained about the odor and that was enough to cause the Irwindale CC to all but say “get lost.”
So 2 NIMBYs and a handful of idiots are sending 200+ jobs and millions of dollars in revenue and economy East.
Typical arrogant California.
OK, sounds like Tabasco still the best for eggs. Love that aging process they use.
Thanks. I like your user ID - kind of describes me (with the help of Milton Friedman).
Texans understand that sometime jobs are a little messy and smelly, but the money is great. Dudes in California can work on their tans while waiting in line for the Government handout!
He is the foundation.
I left the party because I couldn’t accept position on religious fanatics in Iran getting the bomb and I oppose abortion and think innocent life should be protected by government.
