It’s that magical time of 12 months when meals firms have determined to decorate themselves up for the holidays, with extra sugar and spice and generally garlic. Tabasco, the Louisiana-based hot sauce firm, isn’t any exception. This 12 months, Thrillist reviews, it’s introducing Rocoto Pepper Sauce.

Rocoto peppers develop in Central and South America and have a fruity style profile. On the Scoville scale, which measures hotness, they’re between 50,000 and 350,000 SHU. (Yeah, I know.) That’s between 4 and 40 occasions hotter than a jalapeño. Which can also be imprecise, however the salient info right here is that it’s very, very hot. Original Tabasco is within the 2,500-5,000 SHU vary. Scorpion Sauce, the most well liked Tabasco manufactures, is 5,000-10,000 SHU.

Rocoto Pepper Sauce, Thrillist assures us, gained’t be as hot as that. It gained’t even be as hot because the Original Tabasco. It will likely be a mere 1,500 SHU. “This is because the Rocoto peppers are tamed with a blend of maple syrup, cinnamon, cloves, cardamon, nutmeg, and black pepper — resulting in a sweet, spicy, and fragrant sauce,” Thrillist explains. Wait… maple syrup, cinnamon, cloves, cardamon, nutmeg… This all sounds eerily acquainted. Is Tabasco going pumpkin spice on us in spite of everything?
