A recent Sunday newspaper provided me with a 50c coupon for use on a bottle of Frank’s. So when I was out grabbing something else at our nearby supermarket, I thought I’d pick up a bottle. Alas, Frank’s bottle was priced roughly double what Texas Pete’s was — even after the coupon. So Pete won out.
And I had to point out to you that Texas Pete is not from Texas. He’s brewed in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Flavor? Pete’s is milder than Tabasco. I like it enough to recommend that you add it to your hot sauce arsenal. (Apologies that I haven’t yet tried Frank’s.)
This post is inspired by my blogging friend James Taylor. He said, “I literally put Tabasco sauce on everything…”
Finally, apologies to my overseas readers — I’m guessing Texas Pete has not taken his sauce outside these borders.
