Founded in 1971 by Mr. Jose-Luis Saavedra, Tapatio Hot Sauce is still one of America’s most popular! Funko has created a Pop! of their mascot, Tapatio Man, in homage!
“Tapatío” is the name given to the inhabitants of Guadalajara, Jalisco, and the birthplace of the founders of a well-known brand of American hot sauce produced in Vernon, California.
The company’s icon or mascot is The Tapatío Man. The character shows the typical stereotypical image of a Mexican holding a bottle of hot sauce.
