Heat, heat, my kingdom for HEAT!!

And now, for a few more supposedly "hot and spicy" things I've tried these past few days:

Snyder's "Jalapeno" pretzel nuggets: Not hot. Somewhere between mild and medium.

Lay's "Flamin' Hot" potato chips: They are NOT flaming. They're medium at best.

Santito's "Extra Hot Chipotle Salsa": Eh. It's ok. Not as much heat or flavor as I would have liked. Still, not bad if you dunk some nachos into it.

"Hotter 'n Hell" beef jerky stick: Ah-HAH, now this has potential. It's good and peppery, with a nice burn. I like it. In fact, I ate one about ten minutes ago, and my mouth is still burning.
I could handle a few degrees hotter, but still... good stuff.

Wouldn't it be nice if, when the label said "HOT" or "SPICY," it really meant it?
I know, I know, it's all relative, but still...
There oughta be a law.

Try Old Cape Cod Jalapeno and Aged Cheddar Chips. I could not finiah the bag they were very spicy...to me anyway.

those not so hot pretzels are really tasty although not really hot.

your mouth is still burning after ten minutes and it's still not up to the jannometer test?
ouch!
why don't you just put a burning ember in your mouth and scorch away the two remaining tastebuds that you haven't annihilated yet?!?
seriously - ten minutes later your mouth is still burning and it's not hot enough????
grief.

Mr. Fab: It's about time they TRIED.

Cincy: If I can find them around here, I'll try them...

Matt-man: (*cough*) yes. I'm sure that's the reason. :)

Natalie: Yes, they are tasty. Just not hot. :)

Morgen: There's always room for improvement! I would have liked either a MORE INTENSE burn for those ten minutes, or a longer lasting burn, or both.
