I used to work at kfc. We had a customer complain that the zinger sandwich was too spicy and they wanted a less spicy one, but they didn't call the cops...

Saddest thing I've seen in my grocery store: Extra Mild Salsa.  I grew up on British food with spices treated as suspicious stuff that only crazy foreigners would use...and I still think that if you're buying Extra Mild Salsa you should just kill yourself, because the world is obviously going to be too hard for you.

Old El Paso makes an extra mild taco kit now. It's actually not bad though they have a seasoning package that you mix with some sour cream to make a topping with. Before anybody jumps on me for making tacos from a kit please understand that I live in rural Nova Scotia, short of making them from scratch it's basically the only way to actually get taco shells.

I find it hard to believe that any fast food labelled as spicy contains any more heat than a single drop of my homemade chilli that I actually go pretty easy on so my wife will enjoy it. The only exception to this rule is the Tim Horton's Jalapeno bagels which while not really spicy per say contain a lot more heat that any other mass marketed food I've encountered.

I think the "spice" on their spicy McChicken is literally just pepper. Like the pepper in "salt and pepper" - not the jalapeno type.

It's actually just that that saying is always misused. It doesn't mean "if a customer wants a free meal and to fark your sister you should let him." It is that you can't tell customers what they want. If they want a meal and to fark your sister you aren't going to get far trying to sell them a drink and a Bible.

I like how one of the manufacturers, who had been using green/yellow/red color-coding for the lids of the mild/medium/hot, decided that "blue" was the color milder than green. So, since they're marching through the spectrum in that order, if they ever bring out Extra Extra Mild, it'll have a purple lid. And Extra Extra Extra Mild will be ultraviolet.

what's in a taco kit and why would a kit be necessary? fresh corn tortilla, meat stuff (and maybe vegetables/peppers), lime, cilantro, ,jalapeno. then, if you're really crazy, make a salsa or add avocados, or, for the rich people, add some queso blanco/fresco or quesadilla

My wife was born with a cleft palate. multiple surgeries in her life later, she can't have a hint of anything spicy in her food. it blisters the inside of her mouth. my daughter same thing. my wife and daughter think the orange chicken at panda express is too spicy.

me- i used to put tabasco on everything. my dad is from texas and my mom from eastern north carolina so my idea of ketchup growing up was texas pete or chipotle sauce. i went to guyana on a business trip for two weeks and had some of the hottest stuff i have ever had in my life (it probably was). now, i don't even sweat or have any effects from tabasco.

spent two months in mexico (guadalajara, monterrey, and mex city) and their sauces...nothing. grenada...ok...that one was spicy. still not like guyana.

when i was a kid, i loved the wendy's spicy chicken sandwich. the only one that has any type of heat anymore might be chic-fil-a. haven't had popeyes in a while so i can't say.

I have had many opportunities to have better tacos. Usually when feeding myself I don't plan air travel though. Tortillas round these parts are made with wheat. The only place that I can buy fresh corn tortillas reliably is about 100km away. Around here this is how you make tacos.

That's known as Minnesota Medium.

My wife's family is from out there and they seem to be terrified of food with any kind of kick to it. We had a huge family gathering out there once, with pretty much her entire family, and one of the dishes they cooked had some French's yellow mustard in the glaze. You could barely taste it whatsoever, but every member of her family bitached like she was forcing habaneros into their mouths. My wife and I were confused what the big deal was.

I figure the grocery stores around there must have three kinds of salsa: Super-mild, extra-mild and "whoah, take it easy there this is regular mild so you might die".

I don't do the "eat really hot things like it's a hobby" bit like a lot of other farkers. Still, on occasion, I like to pickup a spicy snack of one kind or another.

I've learned one thing: Most foods labeled spicy/hot/flamin'/etc foods are neither hot nor spicy. Neither are they flamin' or etc. It's very frustrating.

I can only assume now that it's Minnesota's fault. fark you and your 10,000 lakes and 12-month winters! You've slightly inconvenienced me!

Note To Food Manufacturers: Giving a food that shiatty jalapeno flavor does not automatically make it spicy. It just makes it taste like shiat.

A thousand, million times THIS. Just because you waved some cayenne near it, doesn't make it spicy. I'm looking at YOU, pretty much everything labeled "hot & spicy!!1!!!"

/'Course, I'm a Texan. We like it as hot as the food delivery method will allow

God Is My Co-Pirate: lilplatinum: God Is My Co-Pirate: impaler: If you think the spicy McChicken is too spicy, you obviously can't handle anything spicy. So why would you order to begin with?

Saddest thing I've seen in my grocery store: Extra Mild Salsa.  I grew up on British food with spices treated as suspicious stuff that only crazy foreigners would use...and I still think that if you're buying Extra Mild Salsa you should just kill yourself, because the world is obviously going to be too hard for you.

I guess you have never been to Germany, where anything other than salt is considered molten lava unfit for human consumption.

I've actually had some pretty spicy mustard in Bavaria, but yeah, I hear you on the salt. Mein Gott.


Yeah okay, salt and senf... And the "curry" powder they put on ketchup and hotdogs.

I always like going to an indian restaraunt in Germany and explaining to them that I am not German, I have a palette, and would like food that tastes like something please.

tortillas are not exactly a rare commodity. being told there are no available tortillas is like being told there is no bread. sorry, i didn't realize that was the case. i thought they had become ubiquitous throughout north america. that's unfortunate.

/ i kind of don't believe it though. that's like being told you can't buy a bagel because you're not in new york. fine, go get flour tortillas. that's at least better than deep fried shells.

Egoy3k: pute kisses like a man: tlchwi02: Egoy3k: Old El Paso makes an extra mild taco kit now. It's actually not bad though they have a seasoning package that you mix with some sour cream to make a topping with. Before anybody jumps on me for making tacos from a kit please understand that I live in rural Nova Scotia, short of making them from scratch it's basically the only way to actually get taco shells.

meh, making taco's from a kit is a perfectly acceptable weekday night food choice. quick, easy, relatively healthy and cheap.

what's in a taco kit and why would a kit be necessary? fresh corn tortilla, meat stuff (and maybe vegetables/peppers), lime, cilantro, ,jalapeno. then, if you're really crazy, make a salsa or add avocados, or, for the rich people, add some queso blanco/fresco or quesadilla

I mean, i live for tacos, but I've never even heard of a kit (but, your nova scotia-ness and mention of taco "shells" really concern me and think that you haven't had an opportunity to have better tacos)

I have had many opportunities to have better tacos. Usually when feeding myself I don't plan air travel though. Tortillas round these parts are made with wheat. The only place that I can buy fresh corn tortillas reliably is about 100km away. Around here this is how you make tacos.

These are taco blasphemy. I am so sorry for you having to make do with these. Sorry for me as well, I'm far away from real tacos these days.

I made fajitas once with a completely mild maranade and all the frauelines family was complaining that it was "zu scharf" (too spicey)... I informed them they should probably avoid the habaneros if the barely spiced meat was kicking their assess

You know, I'm surprised none of you mentioned/noticed this part:

"The McDonald's even went the extra mile, giving him a cola and some grilled chicken legs."

In some McDonald's, they serve fried chicken, real beef burgers, and even spaghetti and meatballs.

More surprising, in some countries where I've been, they actually serve edible food.

People forget that fast food companies use regional recipes - so a "spicy" chicken sandwich in China might just burn the face off of the ITGs in this thread.

I find that funny. Different perception of what is "spicy." Every time that I order Chinese takeout, I ask for extra spicy. I get a dish with loads of extra garlic and ginger, no extra chile. I've learned to just ask for extra pepper oil.

Some I have consumed were "meh," others caused rectal bleeding.


that seems like a wide disparity.

Eating a spicy McChicken right now. Either he can't handle slightly spicy food, or someone nuked his meal.

The spicy chicken sandwich at Chick-Fil-A is hit or miss with the heat. I've had some that have surprised me with the heat, and others that I've had to check to make sure it wasn't the non-spicy by mistake. If McDonalds is good for one thing, it's consistency, and none of their McChickens are hot. I will agree that it's one of the best things on their menu, but I always scrape the mayo first. They almost always put too much.

Good God, I'm glad I'm not the only one. Saw an Indian restaurant in Munich, said to myself, "OK, now I'll get some heat to clear up this cold!"

The salt and pepper I added were the only seasonings any of the food had. It sucked.

I can eat anything spicy. I withhold my opinions until next morning.

That's known as Minnesota Medium.

My wife's family is from out there and they seem to be terrified of food with any kind of kick to it. We had a huge family gathering out there once, with pretty much her entire family, and one of the dishes they cooked had some French's yellow mustard in the glaze. You could barely taste it whatsoever, but every member of her family bitached like she was forcing habaneros into their mouths. My wife and I were confused what the big deal was.

I figure the grocery stores around there must have three kinds of salsa: Super-mild, extra-mild and "whoah, take it easy there this is regular mild so you might die".


My parents had no idea of the world of spices until they started traveling a little more extensively to the South and Southwest, with my brother playing baseball tournaments all over the country and me going to school in Texas. Mum was a Canadian who had lived in Minnesota for the bulk of her life, Dad's family has been there for generations. After living in New Mexico a few years in their retirement, they migrated back to the tundra and now put habaneros, jalapeños, arbols and other peppers in everything, even the pickles that my mother cans, nearly kills the rest of the family. But, my mum's enchiladas are probably the best "Tex-Mex" you'll get for miles while visiting up there.

I don't eat them often, but when I do eat McD's food, the spicy chicken sandwich is my go-to food from there. At least around here, it's not hot -- just a bit more peppery taste which happens to go quite well with chicken.

Meh. I met the girl who would eventually become my wife and the mother of my children by feeding her habanero chili at a house party. If it's not hot enough to cause three days of burning shiats, yet tasty enough to keep eating anyways, it's not worthwhile.

I've had hotter glasses of milk than that tame-ass sammich.

There are spicier elevators in Marta than that hocky-pluck.

I've smelled crap in the air from a plastic factory that tasted better and was spicier.
