The latest from McIlhenny Company is a fusion of its classic Tabasco brand heat with Asian spice.

TORONTO—From the original hot sauce company comes a new versatile Asian-style sauce. The latest addition to the iconic Tabasco family of flavors, Tabasco Sweet & Spicy, joins the line to add an exotic taste to a variety of foods.

Hitting grocery stores across Canada in September of 2017, McIlhenny Company pours nearly 150 years of expertise into a delicious combination of Asian spices that perfectly complement the flavor of Tabasco peppers. Tabasco Sweet & Spicy consists of a blend of Original Tabasco Pepper Sauce with ginger, garlic, onion and spices, resulting in a subtle flavor sensation known as “sweet heat.”

Measuring between 100-600 Scoville Heat Units, the sauce stands as the mildest in the brand’s family of flavors.

“While we are known for making world-famous pepper sauces since 1868, we are also constantly innovating to offer new and exciting products that recognize global food trends and integrate with every culture and cuisine on the planet” says Diana D’Elia, brand manager of Tabasco at ID Foods. “We’re proud to bring a completely different taste treat to our Canadian fans.”


Tabasco Sweet & Spicy features a thick texture and mild heat that make it the first TABASCO sauce that’s also perfect for dipping.

But it proves to be a much more versatile addition to any shopping list.

Use it as glaze when grilling meats, as a traditional “splash on” condiment to enhance your favorite foods, as an ingredient in salad dressings and stir-fries, and for basting chicken, pork or shrimp.

Made of ingredients from both the far East and southern Louisiana, this new sauce opens up a world of possibilities.
