Sriracha: Doomed to Dry Out?!

Sriracha: that spicy red sauce with that rooster slapped on the label that we all love. The taste is god-like, sure, but its company isn't all that bad either. They source all their ingredients locally, so you can feel good as you feel the burn knowing the local economy is benefiting from the production of Sriracha sauce. It wasn't until 2013 that sales truly took off for the 35 year old brand. (Remember that time, the neighbor was threatening to close the factory because the smell and burn was flooding the city? Refresh your memory here.)

Well, unfortunately, it seems this bottle may be doomed to be emptied...FOR GOOD.

Heinz released a Sriracha flavored ketchup and Tobasco has its own version about to hit shelves, too. Both are reportedly sweeter and possibly less intensely heated, but you might just have to taste it for yourself. Huy Fong Foods, the maker of Sriracha is sitting patiently to see how consumers react.

How will you? If you can't decide, take this Oatmeal quiz to see how much of an addict you truly are.
