    It seems that I use these ones the most (most commonly used first):

    1. Brinjal chutney
    2. Dijon mustard
    3. Worcestershire sauce
    4. Extra-virgin olive oil
    5. Grüne Soße
    6. Fleur de Sel (of course!)

    Please share yours! That way I can acquire new tastes through MR forums.

    My roommates and I joke "we have the best salt ever" and people consistently go "lol whatever" and then become believers.

    Ketchup and hot sauce are good ones. Ranch, sour cream and guacamole as well. Big fan of honey mustard with chicken and/or fries.

    I don't get all the down votes on this thread, especially those directed at the OP.

    Firstly, the topic is interesting (at least to gourmands), and secondly, the choices expressed are the personal choices of those who posted them - and thus are none of anybody else's business apart from the fact that those who posted them are pleased to share their pleasure of something which they have enjoyed.

    Anyway, to the thread: My own personal favourites include the classics: olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, lemons and garlic (a fruit and a vegetable, respectively, not a condiment, I know). Depending on what dish is on offer, I'm also a fan of mustards, and chutneys (brinjal pickle is excellent with Indian food, as are mango pickles and chutneys). In addition, I like olives. For certain dishes, ketchup (I use organic stuff), mayo, blue cheese sauce and ranch sauce have their uses and are just right.

    Apple jelly, or red currant jelly are also very good with hard, savoury cheeses, such as Montgomery cheddar, or Coolea, or a very mature Gouda.

    Excellent point!

    There's a lot of hatred here.

    I guess that's how MR rolls.

    On eggs, Tabasco sauce.

    On a breakfast burrito with sausage, Cajun Chef.

    On a breakfast burrito with bacon, Cholula.

    On anything else, whatever's in the door to the fridge - El Tapatio, Valentina, and El Pato are all good. I found a sauce called Iguana Red which is fantastic on a steak sandwich, and I imagine on a bowl of red beans and rice.

    Frank's Red Hot is too "canned" tasting for me. Trappey's is too watery, Texas Pete is too salty, and Louisiana brand just doesn't taste good.
