Default Whats the difference?

Anyone know the difference between these 2 Sriracha's? or is there a difference?

Is it in my head or is the Sriracha in the bottom picture hotter than the original pictured first...? I definitely think it is... however I think it also has more of a chili taste, yielding pleasure with the pain...

perhaps you are already a Sriracha fan, you should definitely give the other a shot... not for the faint of heart...

I enjoy sriracha on a number of different food items. I have only had the one in the top picture so far.

If you like sriracha you should try sambal oelek, made by the same company. It's chunkier and spicier. There's also one that has garlic. Packaging looks very similar to sriracha.

The top one is the most famous one sold in USA. Not very hot, but well balanced between hot and sweet. Not super popular for nothing!

I have all 3. Go to Huy Fong's website, and you can order a sampler containing a bottle of sriracha, and 2 jars each of the sambal oelek and chili garlic pastes. Each one has it's place. I really like adding the pastes to soups/stews/chili. My favorite is probably the sambal oelek.

If you grill up some orange marmalade sriracha hot wings you can go through the bottle pretty quickly...

So are all sirrachas the same or do tastes vary among brands?

Ok, you can't drop a bombshell like that and not post a recipe.

That's like asking if all cigars taste the same.

The flavor absolutely changes between manufacturers, as they all have different formulas.

A number of years ago, just to see how Huy Fong Foods version stacked up, a friend of mine and I went on a quest to try as many sriracha sauces as possible, including some imported from Thailand, which is where the style originated.

We must have tried 30+ different brands between us. Including a few that we had shipped over from Hong Kong and Thailand, since they aren't available here (or at least we couldn't find them).

End result, now we know why Huy Fong Foods sriracha is so prevalent on the tables of restaurants across this country and why it's actually exported, in mass quantities, to Asia, Vietnam in particular.

You just can't fvck with perfection.

But he already did all the work for you. The best one is a Walmart drive away.

I will say this though: i do equally like tapatio (not sriracha, mind you, but when talking about hot sauces) as its a non-vinegar based hot sauce. Really different flavor.

Default Re: Whats the difference?

oh yeah, Tapatio is the shizz. Nowhere near the same, but equally iconic, for good reason.
When I make white cheese sauce, it's half green tomatillo relish and half Tapatio, outside of
all the cheese, anyway.

While it's not the primary or predominate flavor component, such as with Tabasco (which is what I think you might be referring to), there is vinegar in there as acetic acid is the 4th or 5th ingredient in Tapatio. Acetic acid is the pure version of the sour/acidic component in vinegar. White vinegar, for example is typically around 5% acetic acid.
