Hot Sauce lovers-**the HOT SAUCE OF DEATH**
Edited on Tue May-10-05 09:00 AM by underpants

A NEW chilli sauce goes on sale today that is so hot it could KILL.

Ultra-concentrated 16 Million Reserve is the hottest science can make.

The sauce is 30 times hotter than the spiciest pepper and 8,000 times more fiery than Tabasco.

Diners must sign a disclaimer recommending protective gloves and eye wear but even sweating testers in safety gear were blinded by tears for 30 minutes.

After trying it, he said: Its like having your tongue hit with a hammer. Man, it hurt.

1. That's dumb, food shouldn't ~hurt~, or require gloves unless you're
tearing apart a falcon with your bare hands :eyes:

3. No pain with my food thank you
I have never understood the hot sauce thing. I really don't like tearing up when I eat but then maybe I am just a wuss.

I will say this-The US Army runs on two things.... coffee and hot sauce. I learned real quick that they will bring you coffee before they bring you water so I started drinking coffee.

7. to this day, I DO NOT tolerate weak coffee!!!!!!
and will ridicule and shame anyone who tries to serve it to me.

As for the hot sauce -- age is really screwing with my stomach. Can't do spicy as much as I used to. But even so, why would I want pain with my condiments?

9. Good, come over and strangle my roommate
He'll make an entire pot with about 20 beans. If that. In fact you can hear each individual bean bouncing around inside the grinder before it breaks up. You can see through the pot of coffee with only ambient light. It's not even coffee.

14. Me either
I used to hate coffee but when it is 20 degrees and raining sideways coffee comes in real handy.

I have never had the ability to eat hot food. Some people revel in the pain I just don't get it.

22. I like my coffee black and strong like my women ...
(and my wife fits that description!)

I like spicy, too, but I have met my match and no longer believe that there are not chile sauces that are not too hot for me. I used to believe that food couldn't be any good unless I turned bright red and broke out in a sweat.

then there was this plate of jerk chicken ....

2. The hottest science can make?!
I love hot sauce, but just because you CAN do something doesn't mean that you SHOULD do it. Dave's Insanity Sauce is as hot as I'll ever need to add to my food.

4. Sounds like marketing more than fact.
I love hot food, and can rarely find a hot sauce thats hot enough unless I go to a specialty shop. Other places have you sign disclaimers and waivers of liability before you eat their wings.

In fact, maybe tonight I'll finally pop that Dave's Insanity Corn.

26. Actually, it probably is.
On the capsaicin concentration scale, police-grade pepper spray only ranks about 5 million. Tabasco sauce is around 2500, while most popular hot sauces are in the 10-50k range.

A few bottles of this stuff in the local reservoir could decimate a small town.

16. The Ring of Fire is real, folks.
You haven't lived until the morning after a habanero pizza.

I just can't get past the burnt cat hair taste of Dave's.

The Boston area Chili Heads usta have hotluck get togethers. One year the hottest thing there was ice cream; the next was bread. Is that creative or what?????

18. Sounds interesting. I'd love to try some at least once.
I can understand the part about it killing asthmatics though, because Dave's Habanero Insanity Sauce knocked the air out of my lungs the first time I tried it (used way too much, thinking my friends were exaggerating about its strength)

The real danger though (as the article mentions) would be touching "sensitive body parts" with this stuff on your hands. I did that once after eating serrano peppers, which are considerably cooler than this stuff. :scared:

19. what's the point?
oh, jeez, they'll prbly start using it @ gitmo...



BTW, if you find yourself in pain by inadvertant hotsaucing, put a pinch of salt on your tongue. almost instant relief.

23. she's insane
NOT trolling for sympathy, really. i'm 56 YO, & long past the trauma. don't even have flashbax from the 'nam, anymore...


my mother was abusive; i was often tied to a chair, fed chili pods, then forced to read aloud for hours.

welchel is a very sick person and needs to be in treatment for her mental problems.

27. They've actually found out spicy food is addictive
The curry shops in England keep making things hotter and hotter as people get used to increasing levels of heat and aren't creating endorphins. It's to the point that a lot of Indian/Pakistani food there is inedible to the average person.

28. I like spicy'n'hot
But flavor wins more points. Hot sauce can be hot as hell, but still taste like shit. That's why I don't really care for jalapeno type stuff, the flavor of it is gross. I'm more of a cayenne pepper type.

I'm also a wimp of hot sauce, but not a big wimp. I'm average, I guess.
