Take the first-ever video tour of the Sriracha factory
The Sriracha factory in Irwindale, CA is on the verge of shutdown due to protests over its noxious fumes, but have no fear: the investigative journalists at CBS are so on the ball that they actually toured the factory before the "burning" controversy struck.In addition to several of these 14 things you didn't know about the cock-sauce, the video unveils some spicy new bits of Sriracha lore.
Perhaps most importantly, there exists a shirt emblazoned with the slogan "I put Sriracha on my Sriracha", which founder David Tran wears like a total boss. Secondly, Tran is just as cocky as his mascot in claiming that if you don't like Sriracha, there's something wrong with you. And lastly, there are more than 200,000 barrels of red jalapenos sitting in the Sriracha warehouse.
