I did send Tesco customer service an email 2weeks ago about where I can find the closest Tesco to Sligo that still offers Franks Sauce but ofcourse all I got was their standard automatic reply of 'we have received your email bla bla bla' and then ofcourse nothing.

I was thinking of calling them but could only find this 'Low' call number which I assume is similar to the Sky Lo call number that always costs me a fortune when I call them. Damn thieves.

If anyone has a Tesco customer phone number thats just an ordinary irish number I would call them up (that only costs me 1cent/min) . Sometimes they have an extra phone number if you call outside from Ireland like ESB but i didnt find it on their contact page.
They should be able to find out which Tesco's still receive Franks if there are any left at all.

Maybe the deal that started this thread was just so they can get rid of their inventory.

I hope not but it sounds like there aren't many stores left that offer it.

http://www.tesco.ie/contactframe.htm...gn=TLContactUs

i'm fairly sure that 00800 number is free or local call cost but if you don't want to ring that then ring the dublin head office number 01 2808441

Really gonna miss this sauce. I know the Indian food supply shop near Leonards corner does a hot sauce, think it was called "crystal". It has a very similar vinegary taste to franks, might be worth a try for those having withdrawal symptoms, like me.

about a month ago, my local supervalu (johnstown, navan) started selling it. for some reason they have it in front of the butchers counter next to the fish, but it's definitely there, both the buffalo one (with the fake butter already in) and the regular hot sauce. they even have small condiment sized bottles too for use as a table sauce.

not sure if it was the importers trying to get shot of their last stock, or what, but it was still there a week or so ago the last time i was in.

maybe they have it in other supervalu's too?

Don't Panic

Folks

My brother bought a couple of bottles in a Eurospar shop and he also saw the sauce in a regular Spar shop.

Great site-have used it before-postage is expensive, but the selection of hot sauce is fantastic.

Never heard of this sauce but now I want to try it! I'm addicted to all things of the chili variety. A very hot sauce that is available in Supervalu is Encona Hot pepper sauce, not for the faint hearted!




Also for those into fresh chilis, I find the Dunnes reduced to clear section great to get them cheap, usually around the euro mark for a huge bag of chilis. I've often got scotch bonnet chilis aswell for a fraction of what you'd pay elsewhere. Mmmmmm chilis
