Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon.

One gallon of Chipotle Tabasco sauce: FINISHED

My wife and I began consuming a one gallon jug of Tabasco Chipotle on September 12, 2007. As of June 7, 2008, that jug was empty.

I did the math on this. There are 128 ounces in a gallon and it took us 264 days to finish it. That means my wife and I swallowed 0.48 ounces of Tabasco Chipotle per day. There are six teaspoons in an ounce, so that means that we each ate an average of 1.5 teaspoons of this hot sauce every single day for the past nine months.

I'm not sure people believed me when I said that Tabasco's Chipotle sauce was the best hot sauce on planet Earth. Now it's been proven to any doubters.

And you should consider my opinion on this matter worth its weight in peppers. I've been eating hot sauce since I was hardly able to walk; in fact, Tabasco was the very first hot sauce I ever tried. My parents often have told and re-told the story of when I was a few years old and came screaming to them right after I'd tasted it for the first time. I've been smitten ever since and now the good people at the Tabasco company have created this nectar of the gods, Chipotle.

I'm not sure I ever want to live a life WITHOUT Tabasco Chipotle playing some role.

impressive feat though for hot sauce consumtion
 
Mike,

Yes, Cholula is excellent but it's no Chipotle.
 
To be honest, I'm surprised it lasted that long.
 
Holy shit, I hope you guys also bought antacids in bulk!
 
All I can say is... amen brother, amen.
 
I remember the post when you bought the gallon. It's truly an astounding feat, although I'm willing to bet your calculations didn't account for friends coming over and having a few teaspoons themselves.
 
This post inspired me to try it.


Now that I have, I'm wondering where to get the gallon jug.

Well done, and thanks.
