Best grocery store sauce....mayo, yellow mustard, the occasional sticky sweet bbq sauce....Dank Sauce was a good find...other than that, i hit up Heat Hot Sauce Shop for lots of our favorites.

We do buy some verde sauce like Herdez to use in making crock pot pork. And tinned Hatch chiles, but that id

Yup. Some diced pork , onions, garlic, misc tomatoes and hatch, beans, crock pot for the day, served over rice or with tortillas...
 
most the sauces I can find local are malindas. I was lucky enough my wife ordered me a box of lucky dog sauces for my b-day. Really enjoyed heats a peach. Saving rest for wings

Besides the classics like Trappey's,
That's not a product I've ever found retail here in S.C. It was the only hot sauce I can recall offered during my tour in the Navy, save for the little bottles of Tabasco that came with MREs. It filled the bill at the time, would buy some if it were readily available, for purpose of nostalgia. It sure helped the fake eggs at breakfast... I seem to think the bottles had a MIL-SPEC number......

I have Cholula. It's tangy for when you want that.

They don't have it in SC?!!? Whaaaat?? It's very basic like, red vinegar. Eggs and frozen pizza is about all I use it for. We like it better than Tobasco because it doesn't have that fermented undertone that to me makes Tabasco taste like it's turnt. LOL

Supermarkets here don’t typically have a crazy selection :mope:

@PaulG , I WISH I could get readily grab that Secret Aardvark sauce at the grocery store! That stuff is deeeeee-licious!

@WarrantMan , by the time I was in the military, they’d switched to Texas Pete’s ;) I’ve never tried Trappey’s.

For the “usual suspects” at our grocery stores, I really like the chipotle sauces from Tabasco and Cholula. Once in a while I can find Melinda’s. I like their Scotch Bonnet and Mango Habanero sauces. The one time I saw High River’s “Tears of the Sun” sauce on the shelf, I grabbed 3 bottles, especially after hearing @Edmick rave about it. Glad I did too, because it’s freakin’ awesome. Walkerswood makes a pretty damn good jerk sauce/paste/marinade too, that (I believe) comes in a couple different heat levels.

@The Hot Pepper , I’ve never tried that Herdez Salsa Verde sauce but, their Guacamole Salsa sauce is off the charts good! Super creamy and great on Mexican food. Label says it’s mild, but it packs a little bit of kick from the poblanos in there:

Their taqueria roja (no heat) sauce is pretty tasty, and their taqueria chipotle one isn’t too bad

For hot wing sauce, I always go for a local favorite from Connecticut; Archie Moore’s Buffalo wing sauce. Another thick, creamy sauce that’s a staple in my fridge:

I just found this sauce in the store a few months ago, and it’s really tasty! Goes well on just about anything. (No, this pic isn’t a hot sauce but) They make a Buffalo sauce infused version of this stuff that’s purdy darn good too (same style bottle but different color scheme on the label, if I’m remembering that correctly)

Up until Earth Fare closed down, Elijah's Xtreme Regret and their Ghost Pepper sauce, now I have to order online. Even the Tropical Pepper Co Ghost Pepper sauce was good, but I can't get that anymore either from my local grocer. I went to the Farmers Market in my area a couple weeks ago, Black Dog Gourmet White Balsamic Reaper Hot Sauce is delicious.
