Pay no attention to the steaming intestines

Guess what I got in the mail today!
The Crotchety Old Man knows I love hot stuff, so he sent me a present!

It's this cayenne powder blend... supposedly so hot that it's used medicinally to increase circulation and help regulate blood pressure.
The label says it has 250,000 "heat units".
(By this, I assume they mean scovilles.)

I tried some a few minutes ago, by dipping a few barbecue potato chips into the powder.
It's EXCELLENT! I love it! It's got a good steady burn. Not harsh enough to bring tears to my eyes, but not wussy either. Just right!

It's good straight from the jar as a chip dip, AND I think it will make some awesome Chex Mix.
Oooh, and just think of the magic that will happen when I sprinkle some on my bean tostadas and burritos.
I can hardly wait.

Thank you, Mr. Crotchety! :)

But wait... there's more.
Guess what.
The herbal company sent a FREE GIFT with the order.

You'll never guess what it is.

I am now the proud owner of a bottle of "Intestinal Formula #1".

Apparently they figured somebody willing to consume a big jar of cayenne powder might conceivably need some "help" later on.

That was nice of them, wasn't it?

Oh wow, you got the bonus, too?
That is awesome.

You ate the pepper stuff straight? You are truly the queen of all things blazing hot. It should make your Chex Mix really zippy.

Janna said...

DaOldMan (Crotchety!): It is zippy indeed! I love it! Thank you again. :)

Me-Me King said...

You are a brave, brave woman! Don't get me wrong, I like the spicy dishes here in Arizona, but not to the extent you do. There are actually some peppers at the Mexican market that make me sweat as I walk by.

Travis said...

I'm pleased that you have finally been able to satisfy your craving to burn the hell out of your mouth.

Janna said...

MeMeKing: Buy some and try them! Blog about it!

Travis: Me too!

Mo said...

I have to laugh that you are using "original clinical formula" cayenne pepper on your food!

Janna said...

Morgen: It's not as hot as a habanero or a scotch bonnet, but still pretty good. I like it. :)

JD at I Do Things said...

Wow. I like hot and spicy, too, but that stuff looks like (is?) medicine rather than a condiment.

I notice Dr. Schulze also sells "Brain Formula." I might look into that.

Janna said...

JD: It's both a condiment AND a medicinal thingy. Think of it as multitasking!! :)

Marilyn said...

What are the instructions on the bottle? I mean, how are you generally supposed to take it. I assume that most patients don't use the chip dip method.

Janna said...

Marilyn: I didn't even look at the instructions. Here, let's see.... It says to take a quarter-teaspoon 2-4 times daily, either dissolved in water or added to food. Cool! I'll be the healthiest person alive!
