Spicy Foods

cheetos bagels

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.

Taco-Bell-Sriracha

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.

spicy seasonings

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.

This Dhalsim curry is an official Capcom product and recently went on sale (and promptly sold out) in Japan. Dhalsim is the fire-breather in Street Fighter II, so it’s a safe bet this curry was on the hot side. Gigazine reviewed the curry and said it was so hot, their reviewer broke out in a sweat. It also could have been the price that caused his distress as this curry went for a whopping $26 for a 5-pack versus the roughly $1 per pack it costs for stuff normally.

buffalo wing donut

Yes, you read that correctly. Tim Horton’s has created a buffalo wing doughnut that you can currently purchase at the New York State Fair. This Frankendonut is a pull-apart yeast doughnut that is dunked in either hot or mild sauce and then topped with crushed chips. There’s even a side of ranch dressing. I think I’ll stick with chocolate glazed.

hot sauce 1

Do you treat recipe ingredients like they’re part of a magic spell? If so, then these hot sauces may appeal to you. The Chilli Alchemist Hot Sauces line features seven different spicy concoctions (Anise, Elixir Orientem, Purus, The Philosopher’s Dew, The Smoke Potion, and Urna Liquorum) that come in glass apothecary-style bottles that are hand-corked and wax-sealed. They look like something you’d see in Snape’s supply room.

You can use the potions as a dipping sauce, salad dressing, or marinade. And hey, even if you forget about the hot sauces after you purchase them, the bottles will look nice on your kitchen counter.

These pepper shaped gummy candies may look like a sweet treat, but take a bite and you might be surprised. Made in the shape of jalapeño, habanero and ghost peppers, they pack a spicy punch that’s similar to the real thing. From the product page:

Each pack includes three pepper-shaped gummies infused with actual jalapeño, habanero, or ghost pepper spices. But don’t fear that these treats are all heat and no sweet! The delicious flavors of green apple (jalapeño), orange (habanero), and cherry (ghost pepper) are well-balanced in each and every bite.

You can buy these spicy treats in packs of three with one of each flavor so you can see how they stack up against the real deal.

Over in Copenhagen last week, roughly 1,000 people came together to collectively torture their taste buds for a fun video. Each person was given an individually wrapped ghost pepper (which is roughly 100 times hotter than a jalapeño), and they all chomped down at the exact same time. The result, as you’ll see, is rather entertaining.

Check out the video after the break…
