Beyoncé blessed the world twice over this weekend with the surprise drop of her epic new single, “Formation,” on Saturday and again on Sunday, with a live performance at the Super Bowl.

I’ve been listening to Queen Bey’s track on repeat, and—like everyone else at this point—am pretty fascinated by the lyrics to the song, and already have spotted people hashtagging one particular line like crazy on social media: “They’ll never take the country out of me/I got hot sauce in my bag/Swag.” And in case you’re asking yourself if this is the best food-related pop music proclamation since Kanye angrily told some poor waiter to “hurry up with my damn croissant,” yes, it is. One hundred percent.

Those lyrics, of course, took me down the rabbit hole of line analysis. What kind of hot sauce does Bey carry with her at all times? Does she prefer packets or bottles? Packets, mini or full-sized? Regular, smoky, chipotle, or something with more of a foodie twist?

With nothing left to do but speculate, I sought out to find my own handbag-friendly hot sauce. And, of course, obsess over Beyoncé’s own new saucy merch.
