Can I be the hipster foodie who points out that Huy Fong's product should not be called Sriracha, since it doesn't use the correct type of peppers, and it actually doesn't taste that similar to real Thai Sriracha?  Or that real Thai made Sriracha sauce (including the original commercial sauce from 70 years ago) can be found with just a little bit of shopping around?

For now. Texas would probably pay all of the moving expenses AND allow them to stink all they want.

"It's difficult to tell a resident that suffers from asthma or their child that suffers from asthma, 'Sorry, we do not want to be considered business-unfriendly; just keep your child indoors,' " Galante says.

It's much easier and more sensible to tell 200+ workers that they're SOL because a few hypochondriac parents think the smell is making their kids sick.

Most of the complaints against the factory were from less than a half dozen households, one of which is the home of a City Council member.  I'll let you draw what conclusions you may.  And yes, this is exactly what is wrong with CA.

i couldn't care any less about sriracha, as i do not eat spicy hot sauces
i was let down, however, when they closed the RANCH STYLE BEANS plant near I-30 and 35W about 4 years ago! i enjoyed that smell when entering and exiting ft worth.
of course, now i live north of fw, so i would no longer get to enjoy the smell, anyway

I would just like to say that this is the problem with every locality, everywhere.  It isn't unique to California.

[media.tumblr.com image 360x216]


Well, let's see.  I still enjoy the old Norris films, eat bacon, and put Sriracha on stuff.  So I guess my cunning plan to keep doing stuff I like and not worry about whether or not I'm cool continues to pay off.

I think that I had sriracha once, but my doctor prescribed antibiotics and it cleared up.

Tabasco tastes like watered down ketchup with barely any heat.

Oh, scenic Oklahoma...

I think most of the reasoning behind that is stubbornness. Plus, Oklahoma is land locked and it's probably less expensive to ship things with a port right there.

Also, most of Oklahoma doesn't have the infustructure to support a giant multinational, like Microsoft or Dell.

Oklahoma City would be an option; but, they've got a pretty small airport. It only has one terminal and no direct flights to anywhere but Boston, Atlanta, Denver and Dallas.

/ Texas though; Dallas has flights to EVERYWHERE.

I have been enjoying this lately. It's habanero based, but the heat is cut back quite a bit (its hot, but not insane) and the yummy citrus flavor of the habanero comes out.  Sriracha uses sugar to a similar effect.
 
2014-05-12 01:47:29 PM
Funny how the brand exploded into the zeitgeist and became the hot new ingredient for products at several national chains after this story originally ran. Its almost like they benefited from the publicity of the factory potentially closing even though there was never really even a remote possibility that would actually happen.

You're the only square even noticing Sriracha. Everyone else calls it "Rooster Sauce". Get hip, cat.

Question since the article didn't cover it, How long has the factory been there? Is this another case of subdivisions being built next to a factory?

/If the factory was there first tough titty, don't buy houses in an industrial zone.

Question; was the proprietor of said Mexican Resturaunt actually Hispanic? If no, it wasn't really salsa.

/ Real Mexican resturaunts require that the customer speak enough Spanish to order.

This happens everywhere when odors are an issue. Some people, often correctly, claim physical and emotional harm from strong odors. Where air pollution regulations regarding volatile organic compound emisssions cannot address the problem, all you have are vaguely worded nuisance regulations. Proving an air pollution nuisance where non-traditional industries are involved is tougher still.

As always, a vocal and persistent minority will drive enforcement from various agencies, be it local EPA, health departments or zoning boards.

I'm surprised that some clever biofilter or catalytic oxidizer vendor has not stepped up to solve the odor problems at this facility. Should no be that hard.

/local EPA guy who has dealt with this many, many times.
//odors are one of the most difficult air pollution issues to solve sometimes, since real health problems are almost impossible to document and harded to directly attribute.
///"soft" enforcement is almost always the better plan.

uncleacid: Would carbon air filters really break his budget.



Air filters were already built in and subsequent to the original complaints Tran had additional filters installed.  Still hasn't resolved the dispute.

What you just said is the equivalent of Jackie Kennedy putting ketchup on everything the French chef at the White House served her.
/Chef was so pissed off about that so he once served her horsemeat. She put on ketchup and ate it and liked it.

I've never done this simply because it doesn't even sound good.  It sounds kind of nasty.

Personally, I think it tastes like vinegar and ass, but to each his own.  People are pretty specific on which sauces they like, and I appreciate that there's a variety available.

Hack Patooey: Is this the thread where I say [insert other hot sauce brand] is better than Sriracha?


Im afraid so. What people dont get is that not all the sauses are the same TYPE of sauce. Some people see just heat, some see just taste, some people just want both. To me, the sauce depends on what you are eating. For example, I will use Tobasco on my red beans and rice, but would NEVER put it on a Taco. Sriracha, on the other hand, works on things like Tacos, Pho, etc, but would not work on Red beans and rice.

So yeah, let people have a pissing contests over hot sauce. It's amusing, but on occasion, educational (you learn about new sauces).
