The potential for a widespread Sriracha shortage has been avoided now that the city of Irwindale, California has dropped its lawsuit against Huy Fong Foods and company CEO David Tran. The problems came to a head earlier this year when the factory was declared a public nuisance after residents complained about the smell causing health issues.

The city gave them six months to clean up their act, and although they said nothing was wrong with the air quality, they did install a new air filtration system inside the factory.

On Tuesday, City Manager John Davidson, Mayor Mark Breceda, Councilman Julian Miranda and two reps from Gov. Jerry Brown’s office toured the factory. On Wednesday the Irwindale City Council voted to drop the lawsuit, saying that keeping the people of Irwindale who work there gainfully employed is a priority. Huy Fong Foods can breath easy now that they’ve been granted a reprieve and the Sriracha-loving masses can continue to burn their tastebuds.

tabasco sriracha

Need more sriracha in your life? Of course you do. You can now try a new mix of the spicy sauce from Tabasco. They’ve developed their own take on the fiery condiment, and it seems to only be available on their website in a 15oz bottle. They are undoubtedly trying to capitalize on the popularity of the sauce, and the troubles Huy Fong is having with keeping their factory in Irwindale, California open. According to Cool Material, the Tabasco sriracha is a limited edition product and “packs the classic sweet, tangy, spicy, and garlicky taste of a good sriracha.” I’d try it!

sriracha targaryen sauce

Sure, sriracha is spicy, but is it as fiery as Targaryen hot sauce? This shirt imagines a sauce forged from fire and blood in the heart of Westeros in Game of Thrones. They advertise that Targaryen hot sauce is like wildfire for your mouth, and if that’s the case, it would best to use it in very small doses.

I think Daenerys should consider condiment production as a back-up plan in case she isn’t able to win the Iron Throne.

The embattled Sriracha factory in Irwindale, California has been officially declared a public nuisance by the Irwindale City Council. This comes after residents complained and the South Coast Air Quality Management District was called in to assess the matter.

Don’t panic and start stockpiling your sriracha just yet. The installation of a new carbon filtration system is expected to help and Huy Fong Foods has until June 1st before the public nuisance order takes effect.

Sriracha fans (did I say fans? I meant addicts) will be happy to know that Sriracha-flavored Pringles are now available exclusively at Walmart.

Sriracha is delicious. Period. But if you’re one of those inquisitive types and you just have to know why that delicious rooster sauce is so good, then you’ll have to check out this new video from Kirk Zamieroski’s YouTube series Reactions. Zamieroski is with the American Chemical Society, and he knows science. Like a lot of science. Case in point, in this Sriracha-themed video, he breaks down what makes the sauce so spicy on a molecular level. Turns out, it has something to do with capsaicinoids. I have no idea what those are, but they sound delicious.

Sriracha is pretty flavorful stuff, but what couldn’t stand a little extra oaky punch? This sriracha is aged 1-3 months in a whiskey barrel to add a “long smoky finish” and is currently a kickstarter with 38 days to go to meet its goal. Sosu is looking to raise $20,000 and will likely reach that goal quickly. Check out their kickstarter page where a pledge of $25 will get you a jar of this sauce when it ships in April.

Gaze upon a burger that consists of two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that have been battered in kettle chips and deep fried. The patty is also marinated in bananas and sriracha (because SRIRACHA!), and for the pièce de résistance, there’s bacon too.

sriracha factory

Sriracha is coming back, baby! A Huy Fong Foods spokesperson told ABC News that they “plan to resume shipments at the end of the month.” and get the much beloved hot sauce back out on the shelves.

If you’ve been following Sriracha-Gate, then you know that Huy Fong Foods were forced to halt production due to the fumes from the plant, which Irwindale, CA residents likened to tear gas.

While the making of the sauce may be on hold, they’re getting ready to bottle up any of the product they’ve already made and that means we should have Sriracha in time for the Super Bowl.

As to what happens when this shipment runs out, well, we’ll have to see what happens in court.

On an amusing note, Texas State Representative Jason Villalba tweeted to Huy Fong Foods saying, “As a fan of Siracha and an opponent of California over regulation, it’s time to bring this company to Texas. On it!”

Huy Fong Foods has not responded to this offer thus far.
