Just a few short years ago, sriracha could only be found at hip restaurants or speciality markets. It’s hard to imagine these dark days of pre-sriracha life today, now that the spicy condiment is fetishized by the American masses.
From artisanal food producers to Pizza Hut, companies of all types have been Sriracha-ifying their food in the hopes of targeting obsessed consumers. Has the craze gone too far? Will the market hit Sriracha saturation?
The delicious condiment has transformed into more of a novelty than anything else lately, seemingly outdoing pumpkin spice in creative products. With the holiday season upon us, its time to think of some creative gifts for your rooster sauce loving friends. From socks, to lollipops, to lip balm, here’s a list of some of the wackiest manifestations of the sriracha obsession.
Ok, this one is actually genius.
