Today is National Hot Sauce Day

Get your tastebuds tingling with a kick of spicy goodness on National Hot Sauce Day. Hot sauce lovers will put this zesty condiment on everything from eggs to steak.

Hot sauces come in a variety of heats and flavors, usually based on regional ingredients. They’re also a staple in the culinary cultures of many countries throughout the world.

If you’ve never tried hot sauce, today is the perfect day to give it a shot.  If you’re a fan of the savory seasoning, be sure to sprinkle it on all your favorite foods!
