Getting hit hard by the lack of Sriracha around, and ready to dip your toes into some Canadian hot sauces to try insead? Look no further, friends. Whether you’re hoping to keep things in line or go full Hot Ones this summer, we’ve got some great options for you to try out.
Here are 7 Canadian hot sauces to try now that Sriracha is scrambling for ingredients.
We weren’t joking about the Hot Ones reference, as Dawson’s has appeared on multiple seasons of the hit show. Our top pick? Their Shawarma Hot Sauce, for a sweet and creamy mixture featuring cayenne, honey and red chilli.
Of course, some actual Sriracha alternatives are also a must. One great bet here is the Britannia Mills version, which uses Canadian maple syrup to add a little sweetness to the spice.
Back to the Hot Ones picks! Not to be messed with, this sauce earned a spot on Season 11 and comes with an ‘ultra hot’ warning thanks to the use of Scotch Bonnet peppers.

A switch up on the standby! Naturally, Sriracha Revolver specializes in sriracha style sauces, but with some fun added into the mix. Our top pick from them? The Clean Mango, for a sauce that you can add to pretty much anything.
Who said confusing and delicious are exclusive terms? To really send your mouth swirling, opt for this interesting combo of classic Habanero heat with some blueberries to balance it out.
Ok, time for a couple of homegrown takes on international flavours. As you can expect, this sauce is infused with some tropical fruits, including mango, pineapple, and papaya. Throw a little rum in there, and this is perfect for your next BBQ night.
“Not just for chicken anymore” is a great tagline for this Toronto-based company’s Piri Piri sauce. Who knows, this might even become your next ‘put it on anything’ pick once you try it!
There you have it! Our top picks for Canadian hot sauces to try now that Sriracha is in short supply. Here’s hoping you agree with us!
