Tabasco's new Scorpion sauce is so hot it will melt your face off


Tabasco has launched a brand new hot sauce to save us from our dull lunches and scrambled eggs. The Louisiana-born brand this week released a new version of their world famous hot sauce.

Dubbed the Scorpion sauce, the new Tabasco flavour is claiming to be ‘20 times hotter’ than the original, boasting a measure of 50,000 Scoville units on the spicy scale. For reference, your average jalapeño pepper falls anywhere between 3,500 – 10,000 Scoville, while the original Tabasco sauce has a ranking between 2,500 and 5,000.

Basically, this new Scorpion sauce is hot. Really hot. Mouth burning, tear inducing, face melting hot.

According to Popsugar, some early reviews are as follows: "My mouth is crying," and "It feels like the devil's inferno cascading down your esophagus." Lovely stuff.

For those that dare try it, you can enjoy flavourings sculpted by guava, pineapple, and the original Tabasco sauce, creating a sensation the creators describe as “tangy with untamed heat and a touch of Caribbean sweetness”.

If you think you’re hard enough, the sauce is available now through the official Tabasco website. May we humbly suggest you try having it with some scrambled eggs. 

Oh and if the burn gets too much, drink milk, not water. Water only spreads the burns around your mouth. Milk stops it. But we’re sure a hardened hot sauce eater like you knew that already.
