The eagle-eyed crew at Foodbeast have stumbled upon an interesting sauce development at a Subway in Santa Ana, CA.
It's a new "Creamy Sriracha Sauce" — a take on the type of Thai hot sauce that has garnered a huge cult following in the West.
There's no word yet from Subway on whether the sauce is a permanent fixture or if it's just being tested right now.
What's the sauce like? Foodbeast's Charisma Madarang explains:
"[It] took on a more subdued color from the original’s bright red, it had a mayo-like consistency and was less sweet and much more spicy. The mayo-ish Sriracha blended exquisitely with the mustard, adding a delightful kick to my so-so Subway sandwich."
Fast food chains collect massive amounts of data about food trends and this is a sign that sriracha may be becoming an even bigger force in the sauce world.
After all, Subway is a global food giant with more than 38,000 restaurants worldwide. That's even more than fast food monolith McDonald's.
