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!).

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.

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!

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.
