The popularity of Sriracha has officially reached absurd levels with the unveiling of Lexus’ latest custom car.
The 2017 Lexus Sriracha IS is the result of the auto manufacturer’s collaboration with Huy Fong Foods. It features Sriracha-infused red paint, temperature controls that range from cool to “Sriracha hot” and a sport drive mode that includes Eco, Normal and, you guessed it, Sriracha.
Oh, and the steering wheel was injected with a Sriracha-like liquid and cast in resin while green accents mimicking the bottle’s cap are found throughout. The car also includes 43 bottles of the sauce in the trunk and an emergency button on the key fob that will actually dispense Sriracha from a built-in nozzle.
Sadly, this spicy car is a one-off and not available for sale. But you can see it in person at the Los Angeles Auto Show from November 18 through 27 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Check out a video and additional pics below. [click to continue…]
Love Sriracha? If so, the following video from Refinery 29 is an interesting look behind the scenes. You may recall that this factory was the source of The Great Sriracha Scare Of 2014. Thankfully, things appear to be running smoothly these days. [click to continue…]
Paqui Chips is offering a new challenge to spicy food lovers with this Carolina Reaper Madness chip, which is said to be “the hottest chip in the world”.
As you may have guessed from the name, the heat is sourced from the Carolina Reaper Pepper, which holds the Guinness World Record for hottest pepper on the planet. It’s also features ghost pepper and chipotle seasoning.
Speaking with Mashable, Jeff Day, Brand Manager for Paqui Chips explained why the chips are only sold individually (and in a coffin-shaped box no less):
“…quite honestly, that’s all that you need. That’s all that anyone needs. It’s the hottest chip you’ll ever have, I can guarantee you that. After you eat that one chip, trust me, you’re not looking to dig back into the bag and have a second one.”

In order to document the growth of a pet German Shepherd, Imgur user Bengemm created a series of images chronicling the journey from puppy to adult using a bottle of Sriracha hot sauce as an indicator of scale. What can’t Sriracha do?
Judging from the varying levels of hot sauce, its clear that more than bottle was used, so this is also a tribute to a perpetual love of spicy food. Check out the full image below. [click to continue…]
For his latest stunt, daredevil Cemre Candar thought it would be a good idea to take a bath in a tub filled with the equivalent of 1,250 bottles of hot sauce. He was wrong.
As you’ll see in the video below, he went so far as to consume hot peppers and dunk his head in the mixture. The result was overwhelming misery. It’s like watching someone get pepper sprayed on Cops—if the entire show was dedicated to pepper spraying one guy. [click to continue…]
This chicken wing throne by Josh Elkin has me picturing Westeros populated by a bunch of craft beers.
Maybe the White Walkers would be a group of ice cold Buds, buying up their craft beer enemies to serve them.
TJ Miller of Deadpool and HBO’s Silicon Valley hooked up with “First We Feast” for a unique interview that features him and his interviewer eating progressively hotter wings.
The discussion includes topics such as Deadpool, hecklers and relationships with a liberal peppering of humor, snot, coughing, milk drinking and bets about who will puke first.
Watch it below.

If there’s one thing that Deadpool loves more than breaking the fourth wall and swearing, it’s chimichangas! As a nod to the Deadpool movie and its star Ryan Reynolds, Cantina Dos Segundos in Philadelphia added a new dish to their menu: the Deadpool Poutine Chimichanga. I’m sure Ryan would appreciate the nice Canadian touch to the dish, and Deadpool… well, Deadpool would definitely love this delicious-looking chimichanga.
Cantina Dos Segundos posted the dish’s ingredients on Instagram:
Braised short rib, French fries, Fried cheese curd Black beans, Bacon, Pickled red onion & jalapeño. served with a side of short rib au jus, topped with sour cream onion, scallion, cilantro.
