      I'm sorry does that Fish Sauce contain any Shell Fish

    2. Dale Gorman on

      That's what I'm asking, does that "Fish Oil" contain "Shell Fish Oil"

    3. Sosu Sauces Creator on

      Hi Dale, the only sauce we have that is not vegetarian is our Sambal Oelek. It contains fish sauce.

    4. Dale Gorman on

      One of the Salso Ingredents is Fish Oil.
      Does this contain Shell Fish?

      I just used my Sambal Oelek up this week, it was so delicious. It is easily the best I have had!

      Hi Wynn -- We are currently all sold out of our Sambal Oelek. We will keep you updated if we produce more.

      So far I really like all the products however the Sambal Oelek is unbelievable!! I've added it to a teriyaki steak stirfry and a left over chicken stir fry that I put back in the wok with the Oelek, it was amazing!!! But I went on your link and can not find more? Is/will it available?

      @MichaelSimmons, you can order more of the spice rubs and sriracha on our website It's available now!
      @Kennyjftw @marcuswong @ChristineMarie, @Kathleen Karas, @Tommy Miyoshi, @Wynn T. Hann, @Stephan Kieu, @derpderp, @mikedo thanks for all the comments! The dishes sound amazing!

      This is some fantastic stuff. I haven't used it much yet, but it's been great for kicking sandwiches up a notch. Tonight, it was my taco sauce... turned a rather ordinary taco kit into some of the best I've ever had. I'm gonna be sad when it's gone!

      Great sauces all around I just wish they were easier to get out of the containers. The sriracha is very viscous and in a jar (???), the hot sauce is a mess every time in the original bottle. Maybe some hot sauce bottles with stoppers, that's what I ended up doing. Great job on the sauces!

      omg this is so good! the barrel aged really has a new layer of flavor. Ate it alone, as part of an aioli, and the dry rub. it also has more heat than regular sriracha! Keep up the good work!!

    12. Christine Marie on

      I received my package just in time for Christmas. Gave it as a gift and got to try it. Wonderful!

    13. Kevin Smith on

      I received my package today, while the outside of the box showed signs that the fragile labels all over it were taken as a challenge instead of a warning, the contents arrived intact. I've had a chance to sample everything and am wanting more of the 3mo already.

      Hi Daniel,

      Thanks for your comment. Because we make our sauces without any additives like thickeners or preservatives, the consistency is a little thinner than what you may be used to with Huy Fong's Sriracha sauce. Feel free to email me at lisa(at) with a picture of your sauce and we can see if it's normal or you got one that was not the right consistency.


    15. Daniel SeungChul Lee on


      I finally received my shipment of the sriracha, rub, and the sambal. While the last two items are great, I had a question about the sriracha: is it supposed to be very watery? I was expecting the consistency to be more like that of regular sriracha (i.e. thick and saucy). Instead, it's more like soup. I can still taste the barrel-aged goodness, but if this is not the way it's supposed to be enjoyed, I'd sure like to know!

      Thank you,

      Hi! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! my Sosu! OMG! Just AWESOME! The Ketchup I got before was ... not real ketchupy. Very runny. But this batch of goodies is OUTRAGEOUSLY COOL!

      One minor problem that's not your fault. Though packed well with obvious great care, the post office decided to handle my package like a soccer ball. One of the jars of Sriracha was a fatality, the lid came off. Again as a testament to the GREAT packaging, the bubble wrap and tape kept the lid in place, though loose and only a small portion of the contents leaked through the box. It was a pretty easy clean up but the open jar went in the trash. "Refrigerate after opening" right?

      Would y'all be so kind to send me out another jar? I had intended to gift one to a friend who is a BIG Sriracha fan.

      Thank you!

    17. Kathleen Karras on

      Just want to say thank you so much for the delicious products! My husband and I picked up ours in SF this weekend. It was great to meet you, and we love it all. Used the sriracha in some sriracha pulled pork that I made earlier, and next time I'll make it exclusively with Sosu. Also, will you ever have the hot sauce in your store? My husband would put it on everything if we didn't have a limited amount.

    18. Sosu Sauces Creator on

      Hi Everyone,

      I am very happy to see everyone is enjoying their saucy packages and already been using Sosu in your cooking and meals. Keep it coming! I love to see all your creative ideas!

      Regarding the sambal oelek, some people have gotten a few packages that have been bubbling over, fizzing. No need to be alarmed. Our sambal is fermented, so with the amount of travel these packages go through, it most likely over fermented and created the pressure so that it leaked. I would advise as soon as you get it, put it in the refrigerator and release the air by opening the lid. It will help. It is still edible, but what you decide to do with it is up to you and your judgement call.

      If you are one of those who got one of the more "bubbly" sambal, please send us an email ( with a picture of your sambal and we will remedy it.

      Also, the Barrel-Aged Sriracha is now available on our online shop at if you want to order more or have friends who wants it too.


    19. Thomas Munday on

      Received my is shipment everything was in order however upon opening the Sirracha, the seal was popped and there was a leak inside the bubble wrap. Please advise as to next steps. Thanks!

    20. Tommy Miyoshi on

      Got mine yesterday, man is this stuff awesome! I had it in some turkey chili and later ramen and it tasted great.

      Got mine today! Trying the barrel aged sriracha now with dinner and it's delicious. Terrific sweet flavor with a good amount of heat that doesn't overpower the flavor but enough that it still lets you know it's there. Can't wait to try the other stuff that came in the package.

    25. Jason Hess on

      It arrived today. Thanks!

    26. Chi-Hime on

      Nice packaging. I just got mine today. Will tries everything this weekend. Good job guys

      How do I know when I will be getting my sauces?? I think the time was now??

      Nate - The last update clearly states they are looking at a late November/early December delivery date. Also, it's the sriracha ketchup that is being delivered to stores, which is not barrel aged.

      Lisa - does that mean once the new batch is ready there will be more salt or rub for sale via the website?

      Nate Hicks on

      That's really the kind of information you need to be clearly publishing - we shouldn't have to come ask for it. Not cool, Lisa.

      Why are products being shipped to stores (per your latest update) instead of to backers? (Especially since it seems to be side-project products, rather than the one you pledged to make via your kickstarter campaign.)

    30. Sosu Sauces Creator on

      Hi Michael, Peter, and Diana, thanks for your patience as we make more sriracha from this season's harvest. We had a late start to our pepper growing season this year and it has taken some time for us to load up our first barrels. Because each barrel requires 1 month aging (some 3 months), we are estimating November/early December for our first deliveries. Thanks for your patience. We promise it's worth the wait. Thanks, Lisa

      How can we order more salt and rub?

      Can we order more somewhere? I'm nearly out :(

      It's October and I'm excited -- is the Barrel-Aged Sriracha from the 2014 season still on track to ship this month? Thank you!

    34. ProfessorNK on

      Everything still on track for october?

      Reading all these comments makes me really look forward to receiving my 3 month aged pledge! I hope the drought isn't harming your production too much!

      Just wanted to say that my boyfriend loves the rub that you threw in with the order. It was by far his favorite and we were looking on your website and it doesn't seem like there is a place to order more. Are you guys in the process of making this a permanent item or was it limited time only?

    37. jonathan colwell on

      I am an all grain brewer and look forward to using Barrel-Aged sriracha as an ingredient in a batch of SrirachAle, an American IPA with a base note of the taste of Barrel-Aged sriracha!!!

      What I am most excited to use my barrel-aged Sriracha is for Bloody Mary's to give it the kick! I am also excited to use it for other infused spicy drinks!! <3

      Very tasty. And we live in South Surrey, BC, which we jokingly call SoSu - so perfect!

      Got my rewards in this past weekend. Already started trying them (Sorry the spam of tweets and pics). So far the 1 month aged was great on a burger, and the Spice rub was fantastic on chicken! Can't wait to keep trying new things with everything. Best Kickstarter I've backed to date!

      I am sorry I saw your response late. I see my order has shipped and will be delivered tomorrow. I definitely will be ordering more when we can. I told my Brother in law about this and he gave me the sad puppy dog eyes wanting some for himself.

      Just got mine yesterday and I'm mad now... because I can never go back to regular Sriracha. Tasted fantastic, every bit as good as I had hoped!

      For early backers, will our initial package come with the stretch goal rewards or will that be shipped separately?
