Utah’s most popular hot sauce won’t really surprise you since it’s one of the biggest names out there and most popular sauces across the country.
The news: Instacart, the online grocery delivery service, recently conducted a study to find the most popular hot sauces across the country.
The big winner: Huy Fong’s Sriracha topped the entire list of hot sauces across the country with 31 states, according to the Instacart report.
- Frank’s RedHot was second overall with 14 states — a true sign of Huy Fong’s Sriracha’s dominance.
Utah’s winner: Huy Fong’s Sriracha topped the list in Utah as well.
- Huy Fong’s Sriracha led in all of the West, save for New Mexico, which favored Village Hot Sauce over any other sauce.
Method: Instacart looked at purchase data from December 2020 to November 2021, as well as a Harris poll data taken by 2,025 Americans.
Quote: “One thing is certain when it comes to Americans’ food preferences — everything is better with hot sauce,” Laurentia Romaniuk, Instacart trends expert, told Fox Business. “With more than 1,000 hot sauce products to choose from on the Instacart marketplace, customers last year purchased a whopping 444,854 gallons of their favorite fiery sauce, which goes a long way considering a typical serving size is only one teaspoon.”
