I love this sauce, but this article is nothing but an advertisement for this condiment. Citations are missing everywhere ... it's ridiculous actually. (talk) 11:45, 14 February 2017 (UTC)[reply]

I agree completely. Why not just put a link at the top to their web site. (talk) 09:02, 11 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Tabasco sauceTabasco (sauce) – Tabasco is the name of the brand to which this article is about. If we decide it should not be shortened to Tabasco, it would be "Tabasco Brand" Astros4477 (Talk) 18:37, 30 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Understandable - however, should it be a capitalized "Sauce" because it is referring to an actual brand?-- Astros4477 (Talk) 21:57, 30 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
No, because as you have pointed out, the name of the brand is just "Tabasco" and not "Tabasco Sauce". The "sauce" here is just a descriptor and not part of the brand name. Rreagan007 (talk) 22:34, 30 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • Support This isn't a proper article to use natural disambiguation, since the sauce is not just from Tabasco in Mexico. "Tabasco" is the brand name, not the location the sauce is from - so it could be confusing with a title like this.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 02:38, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
As it is commonly referred to as "Tabasco sauce", no one familiar with the topic of the article would be confused by the current title, and that is the standard that we use. From Wikipedia:Article titles: "The title is a name or description of the subject that someone familiar with, although not necessarily an expert in, the subject area will recognize."

"It" being what exactly? Because as Philoserf points out below, "Tabasco sauce" usually just refers to the original recipe, while Tabasco brand sauce refers to the entire catalogue of condiments. ZXCVBNM (TALK) 00:31, 1 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
