Tapatio hot sauce

mwbachta Aug 14, 2009 04:55 AM

Anyone know where I can buy Tapatio hot sauce north of boston? I live in Wakefield. I have seen some general posts regarding this, but nothing specific. I am wondering if anyone knows any specific stores that definately carry tapatio?

    Not specific to Wakefield, but check your local supermarket's "Mexican" section - they tend to have hot sauces other than Frank's, Tapatio being typically among them, along with Cholula.

      I've bought it at Shaw's in the past...

        Shaw's and Star carry it.

          Shaw's and Star are the same chain (Shaw's acquired Star some years ago and initially changed the name on all of them to Shaw's, then a year or so ago changed some of them back to Star in belated recognition of the Star brand value). But that aside, I saw a big feature display of Tapatio in the Packard's Corner Star this week.
