The label on a bottle of Sriracha sauce features a picture of which animal?
Answer: Huy Fong’s Sriracha sauce is based on David Tran’s recipe for the Sriracha chili sauce, a dipping sauce which originated from Thailand. Created in 1980 by Vietnamese-American founder David Tran, it is a brand of Sriracha sauce often also known as “rooster sauce” because of the rooster prominently featured on its label. David Tran was born in 1945, the Year of the Rooster in the Chinese zodiac. The green cap and rooster logo are trademarked, but the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office considers the name “sriracha” to be a generic term.
There are a total of 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac; the Monkey comes 10th in the series. The 12 zodiac animals are: in order: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.
