The World Is Full Of Wusses

I decided to try a few more things that are (*supposedly*) hot and spicy.
And I've decided that the world is full of wimps.

First I tried "Hot & Spicy" Chex Mix.
The bag has flames on it, and above the logo it says "Hottest Ever!"
News flash: They're NOT hot. They're somewhere between mild and medium.

Then I tried Bistro Sensations "Habanero & Monterey Jack" sausages.
Not hot. Hardly any flavor at all. Bland. Seriously, I've had pepperoni that was better seasoned than this.

And, lastly, I tried "Hot Buffalo Wing" Krunchers potato chips.

Not hot.
Maybe medium.

You could probably scrunch them into a paper cut and not feel anything.

C'mon, world; what's going on out there?

They'd be hot for me, yup I'm a wuss. Perhaps you should hit up a local latino market? they got some hot stuff there. :)

I'd disagree with you except... um... I mean... yes... um... you're right, Janna, the world is full of wusses... except us... right?.

You do love the incendiary, don't you LOL

I like the paper cut analogy...very effective (.-;;

Mexican type foods don't know from hot. Now if you truly want something spicy and warm, go with the whole Szechewan theme. Now the Chinese know how to do HOT! I don't mean for you to go to a Chinese restaurant and eat what they've bastardized for the wussy American pallet, I mean, go to a Chinese Market and buy yourself some Hot Sauce of some sort or another. Use it to make a dip or a topping for other favorite hot foods, and well, you may just become satisfied with the results. I know I did :D

By the way, I found you via Etta Rose's blog. She has a great way of setting out links for blog hounds like me to find others! Cheers

I would have to agree with you. I don't even love the hot stuff as much as you and I still find most "hot" things to be painfully weak. Have you ever had Rooster Brand hot sauce? It's pretty good actually. And it comes in garlic too.

Da Old Man said...

While most of the hot stuff you have reviewed is pretty wussy, I would be very afraid to try anything that you declare hot. I'm willing to bet it would make me fart fire.
Did you ever have Blair's Death Rain Habanero Chips?
They made me cry.

Lynda said...

If you want something hot, you have to make it yourself. Or sprinkle Stupid Hot sauce all over it.

Janna said...

Chica: Hi! The sad thing is, I live in a teeny tiny little hick town which has no Latino markets at all. Weep for me!

Bear: We should have a taste test someday, to see which of us likes the hotter things.

Grace: Always!

Morgian: And it's so true!

Skye: Welcome! I LOVE Szechuan stuff!

Gwen: Never tried Rooster brand. Never even heard of it! If I ever get to be filthy stinking rich someday, I wanna tour the world and try different hot cuisines. So far I've been able to master "filthy" and "stinking", but the rich part still eludes me.

Lynda: I wanna try "Stupid Hot" sauce someday too!

Janna said...

DaOldMan: OMG. Yes, I tried Blair's Death Rain Chips. And I didn't think they were hot enough. Just a sec, I'm pretty sure I blogged about it... lemme check...
Yes... here... it's in the last paragraph ofthis post, and also near the end of this post.

Gwenhwyfar said...

I may have to send you some then. I don't think it will be hot enough for you, but then I doubt anything is. But it's pretty fuckin' good. Also, technically it's called "Cock Brand Hot Sauce" so, you know, you get to giggle like a 12 year old every time you say "cock sauce". (They also make a fish flavoured cock sauce that makes me laugh EVERY TIME I see it.)

Janna said...

Gwen: I'm giggling already!

Leave me alone! I KNOW I'm a wimp!

Janna said...

Whall: You could always do a DITL where you TRY something hot...
