Tabasco's New Sweet & Spicy Sauce

I'm like Tabasco products just as much as any other monkey. As a matter of fact, the Tabasco Soy sauce is on eof my favorite all time sauces. Hard to find but very good to me. So when I saw the latest offering in the store the other day, I had to give it a try.

Corn syrup is the main ingredient, so it is thick. Pear concentrate is another main ingredient too, as well as garlic, onion and ginger.

I was disappointed. It is very different then the other products. More sweet then spicy. Leaned towards the Asian flavor of sweet and spicy. It would make a decent dipping sauce, if you want more sweet then heat.

Maybe I set myself up for disappointment by not having more of an open mind. But for me, I was not impressed and probably will not buy it again. Might even give it away.

Sorry, Tabasco! Have to do better then that stuff.

I agree with biggq. I threw my bottle out, just didn't care for the taste.

I agree here also. I like the chipotle more than the regular.

love the reg and chipotle. You guys got the Habenero? It's hot!
Not Scotty Da Q hot, but hot! I love the fruity flavor, but it's one of those
things you use just a little of.

I monkeyed around with it and never could get the flavor the same.

Yeah, I really like the Chipotle too. I put it in my whole hog basteing sauce, among other things.

Here is a link to the Tabasco Country store: http://countrystore.tabasco.com/ They have a couple of others sauces I have not tried. Anybody tried the Teriyaki Sauce and/or Worcestershire Sauce?

Also, how do you hide the link in the words? For example Click Tabasco Country store and the words Tabasco Country store are highlighted and link to http://countrystore.tabasco.com/ . Any help you can provide a monkey is appreciated.
