Is Crystal Hot Sauce better (i.e. hotter) than it used to be?
Or are my tastes changing?

When I was younger I didn't use Crystal very often. The flavor was fine, but I didn't think it was hot enough. I preferred Louisiana Hot Sauce. And when Sriracha came along, I added that to my options.

But I'm finding that I really like Crystal lately. Has it changed, or have my tastes changed?

Sriracha changed pepper vendors and it’s not as good as it used to be imo.

Crystal has always been solid.

Louisiana is aight.

You might be right about that. I didn't know they had chantged pepper vendors, but I agree it is different than it used to be

I alter my hot sauces so much I can't tell. I never have the same ones in my cabinet

We always used crystal and Tabasco

But I’ve found that crystal has gotten better over the years - maybe they stopped using NOLA faucet water

Crystal my go to for LA hot sauces followed by Louisiana. Tabasco very rarely except for the Tabasco chipotle which is like water for many things. I run out more often than I buy.

Tried it recently; didn't thrill me like before.

However...

Texas Pete is a popular hot sauce brand here in Birmingham. I recently found their Cha! version of sriracha sauce and I like it a lot. Has a bit more sugar than I remember from the original, but it still brings the heat.

Crystal is the same to me. It's my fav.

If I don't use crystal I use this.
