Wish your ketchup had a little kick? Then brace your taste buds for sriracha ketchup.

Restaurants and supermarkets around the country will begin stocking Red Gold’s Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce Ketchup this month, The Indianapolis Star reports.

Both Huy Fong Sriracha Sauce and Indiana-based Red Gold Ketchup make up the ingredients of this new flavor, in addition to sugar, red chili peppers and a touch of garlic.

“Huy Fong’s intensely flavorful blend of sun-ripened chili peppers and garlic adds the perfect spicy kick to our Red Gold Tomato Ketchup,” Red Gold president and CEO Brian Reichart said in a news release on the company’s website.

You’ll know the product when you see Huy Fong’s familiar rooster label and green cap on a red plastic squeeze bottle, The Indianapolis Star reports.

But it’s not the only sriracha ketchup of its kind out there. Hong Kong-based company Lee Kum Kee began selling sriracha chili ketchup in January, according to The Huffington Post. Heinz Ketchup then began selling tomato ketchup blended with sriracha flavor the following month.
