During his tenure at General Mills, company sales grew from $1 billion to $5 billion, the number of employees jumped from 26,000 to 71,000, and General Mills became the world's largest toymaker.

There is a large segment of American history I am blissfully unaware of.

He didn't invent them - they've been round longer than he has been alive. In the UK at least, not sure about US.

I dont care what anyone else says- fish fingers with sriracha and a mustard/best foods mayo blend are the perfect "i am really buzzed but want a semi good food snack " thing.  I said semi good .

yes, the concept of transportable fried fish products have been arounda long time.

this man invented the process in which to be able to mass produce them in a repeatable, and consistant manner.

Well rock on, really. I guess my question is, was it invented in 2012 or 2013, and if not, where did the massive trending come from?


Um, I dont recall when Sriracha was invented. I found it in Los Angeles's Chinatown in 1985 . It had already been around for a while.

I have wondered the same thing.  It's good but not that great...say compared to Worcestershire sauce which I expect to see a massive resurgence in acceptance to the point that average folk are bringing portable bottles of vitamin W to restaurants by the year 2018.

right on, I'll have to give it a whirl. I like "mild hot". I just find it hilarious how it swept the Fark foodie nation this year, I've never heard of it ever before and nowadays you step into a food thread (particularly red meat or chicken discussions or the one on ramen a few weeks ago) and it's like every second or third farker is like "Yea man the secret to good ______ is sriracha".

This makes me sad.

I cherish the memories of digging around in toasted sugary corn-bits for a little plastic toy, and am a little wary of someone who doesn't share this widespread cultural touchstone.

Noodles and Company has it at their restaurants on all the tables.  I had it for the first time in maybe 2003?  I don't think that made it blow up or anything but it's been around a while.  Also, it rules.  It's awesome on eggs.

Hey, I'm not against good sauce just because it's trending. I will give it a shot on eggs and maybe some bbqed chicken b. Are there any mild "varieties" or is the original the way to go.


I've heard rumors and seen pictures that there are actually several different flavors, they're just not available in the states unless maybe you have a really awesome Asian market near you.  Although, I thought I saw that the green version is supposed to be here soon - I don't know what flavor it is or if it's mild or whatnot.

The original is fairly mild itself. There's a little kick, but the reason that people love it is because the heat doesn't overpower the taste.

Yes, but compared to a "hot sauce" like Tabasco , rooster sauce is quite hot...let's be fair.

Some asianphile friends of mine introduced it to me in the late 90s.

My recent discovery is this:

The original flavor is pretty easy to find, but so far I've only found this Chili Garlic variety at hispanic markets.  Goes great with everything... especially eggs.

I love that stuff but I don't buy it because I can go through it so fast.  a little $3 bottle lasts me about four plates of eggs.
