    OK. I have been looking all over. Where can I get more of this amazing sauce. Yucatan Sunshine Prepared Habanero Pepper Sauce. Seriously! I am on the last half of my last bottle. haha

    Thanks. Don’t mean to sound like an addict but, well, I’m addicted.

  2. I believe I found my bottle at Save-On Foods, though I’ve no idea if there’s an equivalent in Ontario.

    From what I understand the habanero/carrot blend is a fairly common combination. If you can’t find the real thing, perhaps there’s other sauces that might also be to your liking?

    I’m partial to the sauce not only for its flavour, but also because it allows me use of the phrase, “shine a little Yucatan sunshine down on that __________” (either when offering it to friends or merely to myself during my frequent bouts of exaggerated self-narration).

  3. I hope that the J. Harlen Bretz Collection has had a chance to examine the sauces our agent delivered to you at exchange point Delta-Foxtrot-stroke-niner-niner.

    The commander awaits eagerly your institute’s full findings on the contents of the package. Please ensure you secure the results with military grade encryption before retransmission.

    Hey dude,
    Where did you get the Tony Roma’s sauce? I had it at my cottage, and my folks forgot where they got it, and it kicks ass….please let me know where you got it….as would like to get a case.


  5. Costco carries Tony Roma’s sauces; I saw three different flavours packaged together when I was there last week.

    Hi, i am looking for Tony Roma hot sauce and i would like to buy some, can you please tell me were i can buy it. Costco does not carrie it any more

  7. Hunting for a sauce is a perfect reason to research and visit local hot sauce specialty stores in your area, Grace. Failing that, you can try online hot sauce retailers, or even Amazon.

    Also, don’t be afraid to sample other similar Louisiana-style sauces. You might even find one that you prefer to Tony Roma’s. 🙂

    I too am desperate to find Tony Roma’s hot sauce in Ontario! We have a large selection of other hot sauces but none compares to Tony’s!

  9. Derrell sells Tony Roma’s Private Reserve Original, Chipotle, Chili&Lime as well as the three Tony Roma’s rib sauces. They ship from Toronto and Vancouver.

    The downside: You have to buy a case of 12.
    The upside: Tony’s makes a great gift.

  11. Karl

    Hi all,
    I was equally dismayed when Costco discontinued Tony Roma’s Hot Sauce.However,it can be purchased at Galati’s Fresh Market (3 locations in Toronto) plus National Importers in Brampton will ship it to you(by the case …12/)

    Is chamoy similar to tabasco ?

  13. Jim Bo

    I’m sad.

    I wanted to buy the only hot sauce my wife will eat for her birthday and I can’t find it anywhere on the net – Holy City Heat, which was made with your government’s and mine work with native seeds – (they developed the species because it was resistant to root-knot nematodes.)

    Anyway, would appreciate if anyone has seen this brand in any Earth stores as opposed to on the net, I already tried Mo Hotta Mo Betta and Firegirl.

  15. Paul
