The Best Sauce in the World

If there is one thing that everyone on Team Fit Foodie can agree on, it is that Franks Red Hot hot sauce is the SHIZ. Yes, we do know that there are many delicious hot sauces out there in the world.

We also have a tradition between the three of us that when one of us travels, we always bring back a fun hot sauce to share. So far, my favorite hot sauce is the hot sauce that Emily brought back from Hawaii when she was on her honeymoon.

It was from the Kauai Juice Company and was the perfect combination of sweet and savory. It was the Original Hawaiian Chili Pepper Sauce and I cried when I used the very last drop.

There are so many hot sauces that we love, but we always come back to Franks Red Hot as a staple. It is classic, reliable, and affordable. You can get Franks anywhere and it has the perfect spicy and vinegary combination.
