My family never seems to get sick of this sauce! Tabasco is usually the first thing reached for before the food has even been tasted. It goes really good with a lot of foods - my favorite thing to put Tabasco on is eggs (especially eggs with a little sour cream - try it out!). It's also a classic for pizza, burgers, hot dogs, soup, and for use in recipes.
Last year I made a glaze for my Thanksgiving turkey that had Tabasco in it - it was awesome! Some people don't like the spicy taste but it's great for adding just a little kick to things when you dilute it a bit.
Although I think this is a great hot sauce, it's not my #1 favorite, because of its consistency. I don't really like how watery it is. Because of the thinness of the sauce, you can't always be sure that it goes where you want it to. But that's just me being picky!
I am also not crazy about the price of Tabasco. There are other hot sauces out there that I like just as much if not MORE that cost much less.
Obviously, Tabasco has die-hard fans and will hopefully be around for a long time. I think it's a very classic American taste. GREAT for tacos. The packaging design is second to none, I hope they never change it! In our family, we keep this stuff IN the box most of the time. I'm not sure why, but I think others should, too, because the box looks cool!
