Ever emptied a bottle of hot sauce? Sucked out its soul, I mean. One day you’re spilling its peppery guts over an egg sandwich and the next you realize all that’s left is a sad, crusty ring around the lid.
There’s a way out: Buy a gallon of Frank’s RedHot Xtra Hot Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce, which is 25% off right now during the Prime Early Access sale event, and you can avoid this cursed dance for a very, very long time. There may be endless Prime Day kitchen deals, but this is the best $13.50 you’ll spend today.
A gallon (or 128 ounces) is a lot of hot sauce. It’s more than ten times larger than the crusty glass bottle on my shelf. But why stop at just one gallon? Three big boy bottles of Frank’s RedHot sauce will fit in your average office water cooler—an ideal dispenser, really. Buy 250 gallons and you could fill a kiddie pool (wear goggles!). If you’re worried your riches will spoil before you’ve used them up, don’t be. An opened bottle should last two years in the fridge.
There’s a hot sauce for every palate, and many of them, oddly, are available in various discounted, large-format bottles this Amazon Prime Day. If Xtra Hot Cayenne Pepper is not your flavor, slightly more lukewarm deals can be found by the half-gallons: Cholula’s Chili Garlic Hot Sauce or Chili Lime Hot Sauce. And there are two more non-classic gallon jugs of Frank’s RedHot on sale: Stingin’ Honey Garlic Sauce and Xtra Hot Buffalo Wings Sauce. Send some to your spice-loving auntie. Stock up your apocalypse bunker. Buy some for the office Secret Santa you’ve never met; a gift that says “yum” but also “I don’t know you.”
In this economy, buying bulk hot sauce is prudent. It’s also good for the spirit. No matter the flavor, those gallon jugs might serve as a reminder to wake up every day and smell the vinegar. To appreciate the little things. Also the large things—especially if it means you’ll never run out of Frank’s RedHot sauce again.
