Scrolling through Facebook, I came across a pic of ‘Tabasco Scorpion Sauce,’ a flavor that I never knew existed! From the looks of the packaging and the name alone, one would assume that the ‘scorpion sauce’ would pack a nice punch and also rank high on the scoville unit chart.
According to Tabasco, they describe the ‘scorpion’ as, “Introducing our hottest sauce yet: TABASCO® Scorpion Pepper Sauce. Culled from the flames of flavor, this fiery sauce features a dynamic mix of scorpion peppers, guava, and pineapple all blended with a splash of TABASCO® sauce. While typical tabasco peppers fall between 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville Units, one scorpion pepper can pack a potent punch of roughly 2 million. TABASCO® Scorpion Pepper Sauce…not for the faint of heart. Flavor responsibly!”
Tabasco’s ‘Scorpion Sauce’ can be purchased online for $7.98 plus shipping. Searching online, I found a USA Today story from 2017, introducing the new sauce! I’m a little embarrassed to admit, I’ve never seen this flavor before today! The story claims that the ‘scorpion’ is 20 times hotter than the original.
