but only in the way horrible buffalo wings are "spicy."

GTFO.

It's amazing how they can get their spicy chicken so damn spicy, and still not have flavor.

i mean, they're mcdonalds chicken nuggets with a little heat.  they're not advertised as ghost pepper or habanero nuggets.  I think the goal is to appeal to the masses who like a little kick.  Me, I love some ghost pepper seasoning, and BW3's "Hot" which as a habanero based sauce.

I haven't tried them, but i get fast food once or twice a month and plan on picking some up next weekend.

"Spicy" should be in the RED pepper sort of range. From Cayenne to Carolina Reaper.

Green peppers are a joke.

Does anyone actually feel that green peppers are spicy at all? I can't detect any spice at all, even when I was a little kid. They do taste good though.

CSB I am actually quite the spice hound, I've got and use a hot sauce that is almost 300k scoville units, but anything hotter than about 5k scoville units (Jalapenos and up) give me hilarious hiccups. Every time I start hiccupping my family will say "was that ____ spicy?" They think it is funny every time.

There are so many things on the market that claim to be spicy yet the heat is barely detectable.

Green peppers taste like chlorophyll  because they're not mature yet.  Red and yellow bells, their mature forms, are sweet, not spicy, and full of vitamin C, fiber, and so forth.

That's the most disappointing part.

But the reality is I only have myself to blame, a lifetime of looking for the spiciest thing I can find has left my palate immune to anything below a ghost pepper.  But on the plus side, rather than feeling it, I can get myself stoned to the bejesus on anything that rates at least a 300k on the Scoville.

If you ever step out to Vegas, we have several Thai and Indian places that make ghost pepper curries. Yum.

I'm sure my now room temperature gramma would have thought they were. She would get plain chicken fingers while the rest of us got hot wings. She would biatch and moan about how hot the fingers were and guzzle her drink. But the rest of the world calls green peppers "sweet peppers."

My GF can't even handle bell peppers.  They send her stomach for one hell of a ride.  Jalepeno?   Fuggedaboutit.

Yet one day I made a curry so hot it would melt your face and she loved it.  Lots of cayenne in it.

That's the first review I seen/read that they weren't worth it. Everyone else like them.
 
2020-09-19 8:05:21 PM  
The author of TFA seems to have a similar palate to my own. Heat is great, but there'd better be some other flavor there too or I'm not interested. Most hot sauces end up just tasting like capsaicin-infused white vinegar to me, which I'm definitely not a fan of. (The ones based on fruit juices or cider vinegar on the other hand...)
 
2020-09-19 8:10:23 PM  
Wendy's spicy nuggets are the best of the fast food chains.

Popeye's is the best chain for spicy chicken in general.

I think green peppers have a detectable mild spice to them.  not really a heat, but kind of a sense that this is the basic version of what hot could be.

If you use the ribs and seeds from a green pepper it adds a bit of spice but messes up the flavor.

Used to love really spicy food. Now I'm old (39) and have acid reflux. I have to make do with stuff 50k and lower. Cayenne is my max now if I don't want to suffer for a couple days.

as in green bell peppers?  I don't taste any spice to them at all, just like yellow and red peppers.  They do have a touch of sweetness, but mostly have a cool Apple-like crunch.

The review of the Mighty Hot Sauce is accurate. It was not good hot sauce and not good dipping sauce. McDonald's creamy ranch is terrible and there is no option for blue cheese like you might get with hot wings. All together, it was an incredible disappointment.

Reminds of a convention that had a theme of 3030 CE.  The golden arches were a warning sign much like the "ruptured goose" for radiation.  It seems that McD, in their last push towards world dominance, developed self-replicating, carnivorous nuggets.

CSB: The kids of a friend of mine thought that for a long time, mainly due to the cooking skills of their mom.  When she and my friend were dating, she saw his spice cabinet and asked him what what all those things were.  Early on, her idea of spaghetti sauce was some watered down ketchup.  My brother's family, meanwhile, have always been about white-people-spicy stuff.  So when my SIL cooked, the friend's kids complained that salt & pepper on biscuits & gravy was too spicy.

Yeah, their fire sauce aint shiat.  The diablo sauce not only tastes better but actually has a little kick to it.  About as hot as you can expect from a fast food restaurant.

Pepper Palace puts out a few decent ones; their "Ghost in the Darkness" is a Ghost Pepper sauce with a great smoky flavor, and the Scorpion Pepper Hottentotta Mustard is delicious...although the first two ingredients should be "Pain" and "Regret" (hint - do NOT use it like a regular mustard on burgers or dogs...)

There is not much in this world as sad and disappointing as having someone who knows you enjoy spicy food offer you some and they say "Be careful, it's spicy" and you try it and it's spicy in the way that pepper is spicy. It's sad because it means they have no idea how good spicy food really is and disappointing because for one brief, shining moment you thought you were going to enjoy it.

As a vegetarian, I find it annoying that McD's keeps experimenting with more apparently-unexciting meat products and still won't make some kind of veggie burger or onion rings. Before COVID, when they were still doing all-day breakfast, I could at least get something there to eat (I'm not vegan) besides dessert, but now they're back to nope (there's beef fat in their fries, so those don't work, and unfortunately that applied to their brief experiment with garlic fries that I would otherwise have tried.)

Burger King's had reasonable choices of food for a long time; even their no-patty Whopper with Cheese was worth eating, before they came out with the bland BK Veggie or the Impossible Whopper, and they don't have meat fat in their fries.
