While the green-capped variety comes out of California, sriracha takes its name from the southern Thailand locale in which it originated and continues to be made. Shark Sriracha isn't as thick as Hoy Fung (some might call it runny), but this more authentic Thai offering is tangier and the flavor doesn't get lost in the heat. It's also sweeter, but not as sweet as Siraja Panich, another brand that's popular with Thai locals.
