This is not a review or an endorsement by any means. In fact this is a miniature rant and or observation. As you may know the mere mention of bacon will open the purse strings for my purchase. Fat Cat brand hot sauces makes quality fun hot sauces. This sauce, Bacon-Flavored Sriracha is a quality good sauce. But. Why do they feel the need to put bacon on the label? I have smelled, tasted, and retested this sauce to not find an iota of bacon essence. A fellow hot sauce reviewer suggested the bacon flavor was nuanced. This may be true if you close your eyes and wish very hard. My issue is the label states and or promises bacon. This sauce is a good sriracha style of sauce but lose the 'Bacon' promise on  the label. Ok, I am done. (till the next bacon product arrives)

I'm with you "bacon-flavored" promises more than a nuance, but there is a lot of that going around in advertising and labeling.

Big Dude, I did not even delve into the ingredients. This is a vegan product so not actual bacon was used. Natural bacon flavors was the ingredient and who knows what that could be. Their labeling worked because I purchased it. Even though it still is a decent sauce minus bacon.

Oh, it's vegan. At first I thought it was made from cat bacon that was on the fatty side.

Jeff the Chef, I cannot even fathom the fallout from the political police and wack job groups if cat bacon was used. Even the term vegan bacon is just plain wrong. It is was it is.
