Ranking The Best (And Worst) Hot Sauces To Spice Up Your Plate

Worst: Frank’s RedHot Original sauce

Frank’s Red Hot is a regular addition to Buffalo sauce, so it’s no surprise that this is what many people think of when tasting the sauce.


A very mild sauce sitting at only 450 SHU, the sauce adds more of that characteristic tangy vinegar flavor that doesn’t work with all dishes. It also has a high sodium content which means you can’t necessarily add more without risking adding too much salt to your meal.
