Cholula, the red “Original” version, has long been my favorite hot sauce. I go through a 12oz bottle in about two weeks. About the same heat as Tabasco, but tastes better to me. Also, it’s more viscous, so stays put on my eggs better than Tabasco.
Some time ago I noticed Cholula “Green Pepper” on my grocer’s shelf, but didn’t get around to trying it until recently. I like it! A bit zippier than the red, and a bit more viscous too, I think. But the flavor is much different than the red.
I still like the red better in some dishes, e.g., tomato soup, but the green better in others. Yeah, Green Pepper Cholula gets my recommendation.
Note to self: Don’t clutter threads with gratuitous posts.

I have been a big fan of the Cholula red for many years....in fact, used some last night on a big plate of dirty rice. I buy it by the large bottles and always keep a spare or two. I like the flavor, but it is not hot to me. I have not seen the green as yet, and was at the grocery store yesterday. I will keep an eye out for it, and will definitely give it a try.
