Riding the Bike with One Pedal.

Did you know you can’t buy the green sauce in a 12 oz bottle, like the one  you might use at Chipotle? This made me irritated. I do not like things that I love available only to the food service industry.  So, like much of my life, I found what we call a “work-around”:

Say hello to my not-so-little friend!

Mmmm. That’s a whole gallon of green Tabasco.  Screw you, tiny-5-ounce-bottle-available-at-Price-Chopper.

Also, for those who like to do cost analysis? It would require purchasing 25 5-oz bottles to come close in volume…. let me illustrate, starting with a gallon=128 ozs,  god why do we not use the metric system?

$3.99 (small bottle cost on website) divided by 5 = Cost per ounce = $0.798

128 times $0.798 = $102.14

My cost to ship a gallon was just under $50.

You can get yours straight from the source, too.  It’s all I can do not to drink it by the shot.

    is it vinegary like the red one? then I am not a fan. I like some red hot pepper sauce I get at city market middle eastern place, I am pretty sure it’s sriracha

    Aren’t you a smart one?

    meesha – yes, it’s got vinegar in it. I use it differently than the red, though – it’s almost like ketchup, but with more tang & zippiness. It’s awesome on rice.
    I love sriracha sauce, too – green top, rooster on the bottle?
