HAPPY HOT SAUCE DAY #FACTS JAN. 22, 2018. One of the first #hotsauce to be manufactured in America was #Tabasco Brand #Pepper Sauce, which Edmund McIlhenny began selling in 1868 and is still available today Most hot sauces originated down south where #Cajun #cooking and other fiery ethnic foods fueled the drive to make hot sauces. For example, Tabasco® hails from #Louisiana In fact, the initial success of Tabasco yielded a raft of imitators including Trappey's Hot Sauce made by B. F. Trappey, an ex-McIlhenny employee, as well as Crystal Hot Sauce, and #FranksRedHot #CayennePepper Sauce. Of course hot sauces were being developed in other places such as the #Caribbean but they tended to be family enterprises with recipes handed down from generation to generation. There are few records of full scale production, with the notable exception of the Pickapeppa Company of #Jamaica that started manufacturing their still popular brand in 1921. Other brands well known today including Susie’s and Melinda’s also started in the ’60s. Then in 1979 Dan Jardine began production of #Jardines commercial salsa in Austin Texas and promptly claimed Austin as the hot sauce capital of America. A title not unsurprisingly disputed, although Austin does have it’s own Hot Sauce Festival now. #NINFONETWORK #FOODNINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #VEHICLENINFO #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOSTGRAM #EATER #TRUECOOKS #HUFFPOSTTASTE #LEFOODING #NYC #LAEATS #REDHOT #OMAGAZINE #DAILYMAIL #BUZZFEAST #BUZZFEEDFOOD #SAFOODIE
