    Spicier the better - it makes your lips look huge.

    I once told a guy he had an ass hole that looked like a squeezed half grapefruit. I've never ate one since. Needless to say it was a passion killer - the sight for me and the TRUTH for him.

    Sour AND bitter at the same time. What a combination! :zombie: My tongue literally recoils in horror.

    Grapefruit is lovely.

    I like spicy food but on the milder side (I've never had a vindaloo, madras is the hottest I've had).

    Wasabi on sushi is lovely though.

    Wasabi is a different type of spicy, it goes through your head rather than just destroy your mouth.

    True - wasabi sort of burns in the nose

    I do think we should revisit this LITERALLY (note correct usage on here - for once) HOT TOPIC

    I can’t be the only lounger who needs a RED RAW RING to feel spicially satisfied

    I just prefer my RING STING to be a result of something heading in, not out.

    I wonder whether those unmentionably sick fucks who like MILD CHEDDAR are also averse to CHILLI HEAT?

    If I can still taste and breathe then it isn't hot enough, quite frankly.

    I love spicy food. But I don't punish my body with strong spices much anymore. My homemade midweek curry is normally a korma.

    That said I recently I got through a jar of spicy Indian chilli paste type stuff with cheese over several evenings. So tasty, so painful, so slimming.

    Spicy, but not the kind that is full of garlic and other malodorous shit.

    I like to sweat and hyperventilate due to the heat, it’s one of the rare moments where I actually feel ALIVE.

    Too much garlic is never enough. I welcome the stench.

    I like a bit of a tingle but I don’t know how anyone can enjoy really spicy food. If you can’t taste it or feel anything from the neck up because your body’s expending all of its energy trying not to die, then what’s the point?

    I once had some chicken wings at a Chinese that were so drenched in a mix of chilli and Sichuan that my face must've looked radioactive

    I think I'm at that point where I've slowly built up a spice resistance. What used to be super spicy to me previously now is basically MILD!

    I cover everything in Turkish chilli flakes and tabasco, and don't bother with normal chillis any more - its scotch bonnet or green finger chillis or there's NO POINT. It's been a while since I've thought that something was TOO SPICY come to think of it :D

    Might have the leftovers tonight. Phwoar

    as my grandma used to say if it's spicy on the way in, it'll be spicy on the way out.

    no, thanks!
