Tabasco. Yeah, remember this sauce—the same sauce that excited many food fans to enter in the universe of mouth-watering spiciness that not many can take, let alone overcome their fears of?
My dear, sweet father introduced me to Tabasco as early as the age of 4 (no joke). Being that young, I'll never forget how tangy it was for me; I relished on the vinegar more than the heat the sauce brought. It took a while to sink in my tastebuds but it gave my meals a huge twist, making my daily feast that much more exciting. Of course, parents nowadays—assuming they're all reading this with a closed mind—will call my parents out for being too extreme and overbearing, such that introducing hot sauce to their child—me—at such an early age, should be considered "abuse." People are so obsessed with drama and conflict that that's the only thing they think about, namely with that story I just shared trying this sauce (I've always had a great relationship with my parents anyway, so hot sauce wasn't a choice of theirs to "discipline" me). If it weren't for my father introducing me to this sauce, I wouldn't have become a fan of it. Besides that, a HUGE thanks to both my father and mother, who, too, loved this sauce.
Possibly the best part about Tabasco is it includes three ingredients: distilled vinegar, salt and red peppers. It doesn't contain ingredients that have the -ate suffix, or any chemicals that sound like a foreign language when reading it. The taste? Still kick-y, still tangy and still mouth-watering. Their recipe hasn't changed, which is another great thing about the McIlhennny Company who continue to produce this. The pepper-y taste was always a nice touch, so it's not all tangy and spicy hot to the neutral eater.
I'm sure by this time, many of you hot sauce fans have outgrown your fears and adapted to the levels of heat brought by this and other sauce brands. I thought it'd be fun going back to the sauce that made most of us fans of spicy goodness that compliment our meals/dishes. Due to the overshadowing of other brands, which we won't mention specifically for this review, it's time we all celebrate this hot sauce from the company that has been doing it properly since 1868. Look out for restaurants, diners, possibly even TV chefs, putting this sauce back in the forefront again.
Also, a HUGE thank you to the McIlhenny Company for their Tabasco products! Strongly recommended!
