This guy absolutely isn't alone in his profound moment of learning that he'd been eating a food/condiment without having any idea about it. It can happen to the very best of us. With that being said, it's quite hilarious that he managed to eat so many meals with the Sriracha included, without having a clue about it. Wonder if there were ever moments along his journey where he found himself wondering what it was about his meal that he didn't fully enjoy.

Dude unknowingly eats the very hot sauce that he hates most in this world.
