to all you Chilli lovers out there!

Was in Migros today (Kloten airport of course) and I stumbled up these:


It's a chilli selection pack with
1 x Habanero
1 x Scotch Bonnet
1 x Rawit
1 x Fresno
1 x Jalepeno
1 x Santa Fe
1 x Thai
1 x Dutch

That's in order of heat btw.

Re: to all you Chilli lovers out there!

I read that people enjoy hot food for the endorphin rush.

Nice to see that others are also addicted .

Re: to all you Chilli lovers out there!

Oh, I'm so jealous! I'll have to trawl round our Migroses here, to see if they're doing these. I'm constantly trying foods here labelled as 'very spicy' or 'hot', and I'm constantly disappointed.

Re: to all you Chilli lovers out there!

I was in Marktkauf in the Rheincenter yesterday, and bought some www.hotmamas.de habanero and mango sauce. 250ml for €9!

I love the habanero flavour. Funny thing is, it says that once you've opened it, you should eat it as quickly as possible. So that'll be finished next January then...

Re: to all you Chilli lovers out there!

I found something similar in Sihl City Coop in the summer. The price was horrific though. Hence we are (trying to) growing our own.

And €9 isn't horrific? I'm just too lazy to grow my own.

Re: to all you Chilli lovers out there!

This place should sort everyones addiction out - some seriously expensive stuff there, but then again, when it hits in with 7.1 million scoville, it ain't coming cheap!

Thanks a lot - it'll even be worth trawling through the German translator for that lot! (Unless anyone knows of the equivalent in French..?)

Re: to all you Chilli lovers out there!

Of course chillis are addictive. Why else would anyone eat one a second time?

Re: to all you Chilli lovers out there!

The pack was 4.20CHF. Very expensive, but if you use them all you can get a good few meals out of it.

Re: to all you Chilli lovers out there!

I've bought Habaneros from the Indian shop near Basel SBB for less than half that price.

Re: to all you Chilli lovers out there!

Yeah but the value here seems to be it's a selection pack, giving you a nice digest in case you haven't sampled and compared them all side by side.

Now that's funny, and the truth. I ate 4 habenero fritters with a half cup of habenero salsa at a restuarant in Portland, Ore last year - Salvador Mollys. I was surprised at how the chilis, errrr, "accelerated" the disestive process!

Re: to all you Chilli lovers out there!

I just bought some Blair's 3am off t'internet . . . that's right up there on the Scoville scale
http://www.chilliworld.com/FactFile/Scoville_Scale.asp

You have to sign a disclaimer when you buy it . . . stating that if you pass it on to someone else, you will explain the severity of it.
