Tabasco’s Newest Hot Sauce Is 20 Times Spicier Than the Original

Introducing Scorpion Sauce, a limited-edition condiment almost guaranteed to make you cry.


Tabasco, the iconic red-bottled hot sauce brand, has launched a limited-edition condiment that ranks a full 20 times hotter than its flagship offering, the already fiery Original Red. As noted by Bon Appetit, the new Tabasco Scorpion Sauce is made with scorpion peppers, a dash of Original Red hot sauce, guava and pineapple. Available online and at the company’s flagship store in Louisiana, Scorpion Sauce scores 50,000 heat units on the Scoville scale — a big step up from Tabasco Original Red’s 2,500–5,000, as well as Tabasco’s now second-hottest sauce, Habanero Pepper, which lands at 7,000 Scoville heat units.
