The popularity of Sriracha has officially reached absurd levels with the unveiling of Lexus’ latest custom car.
The 2017 Lexus Sriracha IS is the result of the auto manufacturer’s collaboration with Huy Fong Foods. It features Sriracha-infused red paint, temperature controls that range from cool to “Sriracha hot” and a sport drive mode that includes Eco, Normal and, you guessed it, Sriracha.
Oh, and the steering wheel was injected with a Sriracha-like liquid and cast in resin while green accents mimicking the bottle’s cap are found throughout. The car also includes 43 bottles of the sauce in the trunk and an emergency button on the key fob that will actually dispense Sriracha from a built-in nozzle.
Sadly, this spicy car is a one-off and not available for sale. But you can see it in person at the Los Angeles Auto Show from November 18 through 27 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Check out a video and additional pics below. [click to continue…]

In order to document the growth of a pet German Shepherd, Imgur user Bengemm created a series of images chronicling the journey from puppy to adult using a bottle of Sriracha hot sauce as an indicator of scale. What can’t Sriracha do?
Judging from the varying levels of hot sauce, its clear that more than bottle was used, so this is also a tribute to a perpetual love of spicy food. Check out the full image below. [click to continue…]

It’s $14.99 for 50, or $34.99 for 200.
There’s nothing that can’t be made a little better with sriracha, including ketchup. That having been said, Heinz is introducing a new Sriracha ketchup that you’ll soon be able to find in stores everywhere for $2.69 a bottle. What will they make sriracha-flavored next?

This meal masquerading as a bacon sriracha cronut was made by the mad scientists ad DK’s Donuts of Orange in California. The taste is something you won’t soon forget according to 7 Deadly who notes:
However, the first bite makes it clear that the cronut-gimmick is merely a vehicle for the punch-in-the-face flavors of the thick Sriracha glaze and generous amount of candied bacon sprinkled on top.
If you’re looking for something “delicate,” this is not the donut for you. This savory behemoth is a Sriracha-soaked, protein-packed meal that just happens to be on a cronut-like pastry. There’s a faint hint of sugar from the dough, but that quickly gets lost as the spicy, meaty heat overwhelms every square centimeter of your tongue.

This would surely make cronut creator Dominique Ansel cry.

Breaking spicy news, folks! According to a GrubGrade reader, a new Sriracha Menu is being tested at Taco Bell in the Kansas City metro area. The test menu featured a number of unique dishes, including the Sriracha Beef Griller, the Sriracha Grande Scrambler (breakfast item) and a few other tasty dishes that utilized “Sriracha Crema.” Yum!
Here’s what the GrubGrade reader said about the menu:
I stopped by and got a sriracha loaded griller for $1.29. They also had sriracha nachos for $2.49 and a quesarito for $2.29. The sriracha was hard to see in the griller so I couldn’t tell what kind of consistency it had. It didn’t taste anything like traditional sriracha and had a distinctive vinegary taste as well. But it was the spiciest item I’ve had from Taco Bell in recent memory.

Love Sriracha? Well, if you’re a fan like me, then you know the spicy stuff can go on just about anything. But, for those foods that are better off not covered in sauce (like… ice cream? Wait, that actually sounds good), or if you’re looking to make a fun spicy rub, then you should definitely pick up these flavored Sriracha Spicy Seasonings. They come with four unique flavors: the Sriracha Chili Dust (the original flavor), the Smoked Ghost Chili Sriracha (pretty hot), the Moruga Scorpion Chili Sriracha (yeah, really really hot) and the Carolina Reaper Sriracha (Oh my God it’s like napalm in my mouth!).
