    I bought two bottles last time I was at the grocery store. They had a shortage and fortunately I found this shoved WAY in the back of the shelf. Love the stuff, but I think it’s burning my stomach up because I use it so much!

      I admit I use a competing product :-)

      I did the same thing. I use Sambal Oelek, another one of Huy Fong’s products, but was worried it would be affected too. I now have three jars in my pantry. Better than running out though. It’s one of the few all star products in my kitchen.

      I’m so glad this is over. For now.

      Yes…doesn’t really sound all that “resolved” to me.

    Mmm, Siracha…there was a whole pyramid pile at the store last time…never a shortage here..so good..I just wish there was a little less sugar…a little too much for my tastes.
