Have you had your daily dose of venom yet?

Anyone who's a regular Jannaverse reader knows I love hot and spicy things. The hotter the better. It's always fun to try new things, even though the vast majority of them are disappointing.

I recently got a package in the mail from Gwen, which contained a gift from hotsauce dot com.
It was a bottle of "Black Mamba Extreme Venomous Hot Sauce."

The sauce contains exactly three ingredients: Habanero peppers, vinegar, and capsaicin.
I've tried it three times so far.
It is very hot.

(And when I say that, it actually means something.)

The added capsaicin makes it hotter than an ordinary habanero would be, so the burn is better.
I like it!
The burn lasts and lasts, making your tongue vaguely resemble the surface of the sun-- or possibly a nuclear testing ground.
I heartily approve.

So far I've been tasting it straight from the bottle, but I think it would also be good in chili, taco meat, barbecue sauce, steak fajitas, and my homemade snack mix.

Thank you, Gwen.
This is some good stuff!

I tasted some just before I started writing this post, and I can STILL feel the hot spot on my tongue.
Wait... my tongue IS still there, right?

YAY! I'm glad you like it. Especially since I had actually gone to that website to order something else entirely. I read the reviews of the other stuff and they were less than enthusiastic, then I saw this stuff. The reviews were all good and the ingredients were more impressive.
One thing tho, I'll promise not to slip you any tofu if you promise not to slip me any of this.

I did a piece on that website a little while back about how many of their products had the word "ass" in the title. A lot, surprisingly.

You should write a followup post about when it comes out the other end. Sometimes, that's even more fun.

Gwen: I keep the bottle with me at work, and occasionally add a tiny, tiny, tiny amount to lunch. Good stuff, even if it does make my digestive tract resemble a moth-eaten scrap of cloth.
I heartily approve.

nonamedufus: You crack me up. :)

MikeWJ: I'm happy to announce that I don't have that problem nearly as often as I probably should. :) (!!)
