Tabasco is a brand of hot sauce made from tabasco peppers (Capsicum frutescens var. tabasco), vinegar, and salt. It is produced by McIlhenny Company of Avery Island, Louisiana. According to company legend, Tabasco was first produced in 1868 by Edmund McIlhenny, a Maryland-born former banker who moved to Louisiana around 1840. However, as Jeffrey Rothfeder's book McIlhenny's Gold points out, some of the McIlhenny Company's official history is disputed.
An angry customer shared this in a review, "This Tibasco Scorpion sauce order arrived in my mailbox with both containers leaking all over and needed to wipe the inside due to the residue leaving multiple other mailboxes reeking. Embarrassing but sad. My friend took pics Asap but heartbreaking over the delivery. I most definitely feel sorry for the postman on his this delivery. Hate to say anything bad about Tabasco, but this was a major disaster. Sorry to even have to write this!"
