“Huy Fong’s intensely flavorful blend of sun-ripened chili peppers and garlic adds the perfect spicy kick to any dish” says Brian Reichart, President and CEO of Red Gold.   “This product joins the portfolio of successful launches in the last year of Huy Fong Sriracha Ketchup (in 20oz squeeze bottles, 8 gram packets and 1.5 gallon bulk), Huy Fong Sriracha Salsa (in 66oz bottles and 15oz jars) and Huy Fong Sriracha Diced Tomatoes (in 10oz cans)”.
