If you are in the area or touring Jungle Gardens it's worth it to take the tour. You will see a short video, hear the guide explain about the peppers used to make the tabasco and see how it is bottled and packaged. There is no admission charge (though you will pay $1 per car to the guard to pass over the little bridge within the property). You will view the bottles being filled thru a glass in a hallway that is raised above the bottling plant, same with the packaging. And that is it! The guide gave us a small sample bottle of every one of their tabasco sauces and you are free to leave or go on to the company store. There is no pressure to purchase anything in the store, but you probably will. The store is a pretty good size and there are all kinds of tabascos, mixes, trinkets, tshirts and dishware of good quality. There is food availabe for purchase for lunch or snack but don't expect a fast food or dining type of experience. Their red beans and rice, and gumbo, is made ahead of time and kept hot in large crockpots behind the counter. It's fun.
