Walmart is Now Selling a Sriracha Gift Basket for $15
Those whose meals are practically incomplete without the kick of Huy Fong Foods’ Sriracha sauce will be thrilled to learn that Walmart is selling a Sriracha gift set beginning next month.
The Sriracha Ramen Noodle Gift Set includes a bottle of the iconic rooster sauce, a few packages of instant ramen, an oversized mug with the condiment’s logo, a ceramic spoon with the image of a rooster and a pair of green chopsticks held together by a rooster plug.
Developed by David Tran, a Vietnamese refugee who arrived in the U.S. in 1979, Sriracha (pronounced as see-ra-cha) is primarily made of red chilis, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt.
After a series of recipe tests and market research, Tran launched the condiment in 1980 and gradually amassed a worldwide following.
Earlier this year, grocery delivery service Instacart ranked America’s most popular hot sauces in honor of National Hot Sauce Day — and Huy Fong’s Sriracha made it to number 3, Food & Wine reported.
The sauce comes in at 1,000 to 2,500 Scoville heat units (SHU) on the Scoville scale, which measures the comparative heat of different chili peppers, according to the American Chemical Society In comparison, Tabasco comes in at 2,500 to 5,000 SHU.
The Sriracha Ramen Noodle Gift Set, which comes under $15, will be available at Walmart starting Nov. 1, Bustle noted.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
