The story begins with a husband (Redditor “Toastedchillies”) who loves to cook and provides his wife with a daily bagged lunch. However, the wife soon complained that her food was disappearing once every couple of days. To identify and discipline the thief, a plan was hatched between the pair to bait the fridge with buffalo wings which had been laced with Ghost chili powder and a couple of drops of Blair’s 4am Reserve, which is more than 7,000 times spicier than Tabasco and is apparently supposed to be portioned out with 1 drop per 5 litres of liquid.
After testing some of the concoction to ensure he wasn’t about to kill someone (he describes himself as “a bit of a chilli head”), he sent the revenge wings off with his wife.
“Needless to say just before lunch, there was a shrill from the kitchen, a young male colleague decided to help himself the my wife’s lunch which was clearly marked with her name. He ran to the toilet and vomited over and over. Apparently the moans sounded like he was dying. My wife just sat there innocently pretending nothing was wrong. Needless to say she has not lost a single lunch since.”
Swift and satisfying justice if you ask me.

There’s nothing that can’t be made a little better with sriracha, including ketchup. That having been said, Heinz is introducing a new Sriracha ketchup that you’ll soon be able to find in stores everywhere for $2.69 a bottle. What will they make sriracha-flavored next?

This meal masquerading as a bacon sriracha cronut was made by the mad scientists ad DK’s Donuts of Orange in California. The taste is something you won’t soon forget according to 7 Deadly who notes:
However, the first bite makes it clear that the cronut-gimmick is merely a vehicle for the punch-in-the-face flavors of the thick Sriracha glaze and generous amount of candied bacon sprinkled on top.
If you’re looking for something “delicate,” this is not the donut for you. This savory behemoth is a Sriracha-soaked, protein-packed meal that just happens to be on a cronut-like pastry. There’s a faint hint of sugar from the dough, but that quickly gets lost as the spicy, meaty heat overwhelms every square centimeter of your tongue.

This would surely make cronut creator Dominique Ansel cry.

These musicians are true pros as they manage to actually continue playing their instruments seconds after popping one of the world’s hottest chili peppers into their mouths. They’re are all members of the Danish National Chamber Orchestra which is led by one Chili Klaus who happens to be a chili pepper enthusiast. They pull off the stunt, but the second it’s over, they all practically run off stage for water in a fit of coughing and watery eyes.

Kids have the craziest ideas when it comes to food. The Buffalo News reports that a ten-year-old girl was hanging around the BreadHive bakery and eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, and she suggested putting the Cheetos on top of bagels. BreadHive’s Allison Ewing figured it was worth trying so they crushed a bag of the Cheetos, dipped bagels in them, and voila! Flamin’ Hot Cheetos bagels. I’d definitely try one.
I hope someone runs with the idea of junk food on bagels because I think Doritos bagels could be delicious.

Breaking spicy news, folks! According to a GrubGrade reader, a new Sriracha Menu is being tested at Taco Bell in the Kansas City metro area. The test menu featured a number of unique dishes, including the Sriracha Beef Griller, the Sriracha Grande Scrambler (breakfast item) and a few other tasty dishes that utilized “Sriracha Crema.” Yum!
Here’s what the GrubGrade reader said about the menu:
I stopped by and got a sriracha loaded griller for $1.29. They also had sriracha nachos for $2.49 and a quesarito for $2.29. The sriracha was hard to see in the griller so I couldn’t tell what kind of consistency it had. It didn’t taste anything like traditional sriracha and had a distinctive vinegary taste as well. But it was the spiciest item I’ve had from Taco Bell in recent memory.

Love Sriracha? Well, if you’re a fan like me, then you know the spicy stuff can go on just about anything. But, for those foods that are better off not covered in sauce (like… ice cream? Wait, that actually sounds good), or if you’re looking to make a fun spicy rub, then you should definitely pick up these flavored Sriracha Spicy Seasonings. They come with four unique flavors: the Sriracha Chili Dust (the original flavor), the Smoked Ghost Chili Sriracha (pretty hot), the Moruga Scorpion Chili Sriracha (yeah, really really hot) and the Carolina Reaper Sriracha (Oh my God it’s like napalm in my mouth!).

If you fear spicy foods, then this bag of Ghost Pepper Cheddar Popcorn is most definitely not for you. Just FYI, the Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia) is one of the hottest peppers in the world. It’s overall heat rating is around 850,000-1,400,000 SHU, and just for some proper context, a jalapeño pepper has a heat rating of round 3500 SHU. So yeah, this cheesy-but-spicy popcorn is only for folks with tastebuds that can handle extreme, borderline-insane spiciness.
