Why There's A Rooster Logo

Huy Fong Foods top dog David Tran was born in the year of the rooster. That's right, it's his Chinese Zodiac symbol. The rooster is also a symbol of strength in Vietnam, so double whammy in the symbolism department.

What's In A Name

I always thought Sriracha was the name of a pepper or spice or an onomatopoeia for a sound someone might make after tasting something really spicy. However, Sriracha is actually named after a coastal city in the province in Eastern Thailand, called Si Racha.

Live Long And Prosper

Turns out Sriracha will make you live longer, well, spicy foods in general might. To be exact, those who ate hot sauce at least once a week had a 10 percent lesser chance of death. So technically, if you're trying to get your health on, you should be eating more hot sauce. Are you OK with that? I'll bet you are.

What Sriracha Says About You

It's believed that people who like hot sauces and spices tend to be more adventurous and more likely to take risks and try new things. But in actually, it's the other way around. You probably like hot sauce because you're more adventurous already. So basically, what science is saying is that if you like ketchup you're boring and hate fun. K, sorry, bai!
