TABASCO® in Space

Our mission: Defend against bland food.
Our destination: Outer space.
TABASCO® Sauce was first rocketed to space by NASA when Skylab space station astronauts complained about their bland rations. Our Original Red Sauce was placed on NASA’s baseline food list for Space Shuttle missions as well as for the currently operating International Space Station.

Mission accomplished!
According to the astronauts, food tastes just about the same when you eat it in outer space, but because the taste buds become swollen in space most foods taste slightly more bland than they do back on Earth. Nothing a few drops of TABASCO® Sauce can’t handle!
