Looking for a hot sauce (not recipe) like Frank's without white vinegar

Hi everyone! I can't have white vinegar but love the zing of Frank's hot sauce. Any recommedations of something similar, not TOO spicy (but spicy is okay), and with no white vinegar? Apple cider vinegar is okay. Ideally no garlic or onions, too, but that is okay if it does contain them.

  1. El Yucateco is pretty good. I love their chipolte and jalapeno flavors.

      Thanks for the reply! I looked it up and it seems to have white vinegar in the ingredients, unless the website was wrong.

        I didn't even see ingredients listed on their website. I checked out a bottle (habenero) earlier today at the local NSA and didn't see any vinegar in the ingredients.

          Oh! Great. Maybe it was a different brand. Thanks! Where did you find it? I am not sure what NSA is.

              Oh, darn. I'm not from the area but am going to get groceries in the US this weekend so I'll take a look there. I can't buy off Amazon, unfortunately (in Canada). I'll keep my eyes open when I go! At least I know what it looks like - thanks!

                It's not really all that hard to find here (GTA).

                Where do you live??


    2. Dave's Gourmet Cool Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce is made with aged cayenne peppers and cane vinegar. I have not tried it but it is in the same cayenne pepper/vinegar category as Frank's.
