    I have done the BWW challenge and completed it. Got the silly shirt to prove it. They were really really hot. The bad part is that they are not very flavorful besides hot.
    Yah, the blazing sauce is just hot. Mango Habenero tho, that's what's up.

    However, it's people like you who have made the manufacturers of Prilosec into zillionaires, so I guess you're good for the economy.

    Enjoy!

    People like me have never taken prilosec and I add some kind of hot sauce or spice to most every meal. Highly processed foods and overeating are the main causes of digestive issues.

    Re: Spice it up

    I've noticed as I've gotten older that my taste has shifted to spicier food. To put this in perspective, I was like a previous poster's wife where my tolerance level was ketchup. So still, the hottest sauce I get at BWW is honey BBQ. But, I can tell I'm enjoying spicier Mexican food, and Hot Tamales has become a fave candy in the past five or so years.

    Don't think I'll ever get to the level of some of you guys, because that's just a little too much.

    Re: Spice it up

    You can make your own hot sauce at home - I did it recently with mostly jalapenos and serranos, and a few habaneros. I also threw in some onion, garlic, chili powder and carrot. I ended up with 5-1/2 8oz bottles and it's awesome. Not too hot, but very flavorful. Plus you get the health benefits of eating a fermented food (contains probiotics). The chili powder adds a kind of smokey/savory flavor, and the carrot adds a little bit of sweetness. The carrot also helps increase the red/orange color, since mixing green and orange peppers results in a brown sauce. Next time I'll probably increase the habanero:jalapeno ratio, or toss in a scotch bonnet to bring up the heat. I might toss in some lime too. Since I'm the cook, I can do what I want! If you make homemade sauerkraut, pickle anything or brew beer, you are already familiar with the process. Do a search for "pepper mash" and you will not be disappointed.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    I love spicy food, but adding it to your fruit is to much for me.

    I have several bottles of that sauce in my pantry! Also have some ghost pepper powder that a coworker made, love that stuff!

    Did you ever eat things this hot when you lived in Iowa? The mountains can do strange things to you.

    Re: Spice it up

    I cannot eat spicy-hot foods. I like lots of flavor, but no heat at all. The heat numbs my tastebuds and all I get is the "hot" without being able to taste what I'm eating. Plus it will destroy my system, along with fatty/greasy stuff as well. Most people I know love spicy, but I just cannot deal with it at all. When I used to go to Taco Bell (probably 15+ years ago), they'd ask if I wanted sauce and I'd always say "no," because the sauce they cook with was nearly too much to handle. Yes, my tongue is that sensitive to heat.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    Well, its not like I threw on as many as I would have jalapenos; but yeah, about half way through the pizza I was dizzy, sweating and couldn't feel my mouth. Looking back, it was kind of a rush.
