Possibly. It depends on how extensive the market's Asian section is.

I've seen Sriracha in Wally World...Not sure about the Chili Garlic Sauce....
I buy the Chili Garlic Sauce from a Kroger store...In a specialty food section...Not in line with other Condiment sauces etc....You'll have to ask or look close for it...They want have 5 facings of the product...Probably only one ------

Our local WalMart, Giant, & Safeway supermarkets all carry the "rooster" brand, as I call it.

It's been a pantry staple of mine for decades now (I don't care much for Sriracha), & for many years you could only get it in specialty Asian markets. Thank goodness I can just pop into WalMart to replenish my supply these days.

THE Sirracha most commonly found, "Rooster" sauce, is the LA brand. I've never seen a different brand on a restaurant table.

One thing to keep in mind when shopping for "rooster" sauce, is that the company makes several different types, including a plain chili sauce, chili-garlic sauce, & a chili-onion sauce (which is a bit darker). Out of the 3, I like the chili-garlic sauce the best, but the others are worth trying for different applications as well.

Having shopped in grocery stores across the country, the strained red one that comes is a big plastic bottle is pretty readily available (I live in small town midwest and can buy it in both stores that are within a few miles of my house (Wal-Mart and Piggly-Wiggly). My husband prefers this one. One comes in a jar rather than squirt bottle, and is not as strained -- seeds, pieces of garlic, etc. Both have roosters on the label. That I often have to buy at an Asian grocery, so have to travel for it. TO me they have a similar flavor, just one texture is almost like catsup, one is rougher. I like both, but prefer the latter, my husband prefers the more pureed, strained version.

The plastic squirt bottle contains their version of Sriracha; their "chili sauce", "chili-garlic sauce", & the chili sauce with onions all come in basic plastic jars for spooning out.

While I do keep it on hand for certain recipes, the Sriracha is my least favorite. I find it a bit too sweet for my taste.

I'm bumping this thread because I wanted to share this link. I stumbled across the link checking the link Cerise posted to the Faux Pho soup that inspired what she's making tonight:

25 Ways to Use Sriracha: bonappetit.com

I've got everything for the Chard refrigerator pickles and can't wait to try them.
