Okay, I’ll check the label, but PHEW, okay, finally. I’ll make a HOT SAUCE video on this in the next day or two. For now? I find it tasty. Mouth is in pain. But, in a good way. I know, I know, I’m a masochist. My nose is running. Eyes are watering. I keep salivating.

Definitely having some milk around when I do the video review.

El Yucateco. Phew. Picante, and tastes great. Medium, and verging on hot. As I’m still recovering. That’s how picante is done.

And for posterity, I looked up the Scoville scale/level of this.

8,910 Scoville Units.

Still not quite sure what the frak that means, but noting for further reference.

Sure I’ve mentioned Ass in Space at least once. Three drops, THREE DROPS could picante an entire pound of taco beef. Just three drops.

Seriously. Fear smaller bottles. If you get a large bottle of hot sauce, it means you need to use more. But a small bottle? That’s the marketer having the confidence of “Yeah, you really don’t need much. Bring some milk to the table.”

Ass in Space? “250,000 - 1,000,000 Scoville Units.”

What does it truly mean?

I. DON’T. KNOW.

You.... follow?

Have you ever seen the show Hot Ones?

It’s an interview show where celebrities answer questions while eating progressively hotter wings.

My favorite episode features Gordon Ramsay burning his dick because he took a piss after eating the wings. I didn’t feel bad laughing because, as a chef, his ass should’ve known better.

Negative. Have not seen "Hot Ones." Oddly, I'm not really into wings. I don't get the point. Never tasted good?

You're not entirely wrong. I respect Gordon Ramsay. I just did a google-fu. Ramsay is not an Iron Chef like Iron Chef Bobby Flay.

Yeah. My main issue with wings is the older I get, the more my teeth scraping against a chicken bone creeps me out and I can’t eat the thing. They’re a vehicle for hot sauce to be cooled by blue cheese, so I get boneless instead.

It’s interesting watching the various pain tolerances people have for the heat: some make it through all the wings without a sip of water and others are drinking milk immediately.

Oh, thank you. Boneless. Always boneless chicken. Trying to get meat off of chicken bone bothers me.

I can down scrambled eggs. I tune out where the eggs came from.

But whether a solid bone or a FRAKKING WING. Ugh. I tease vegans/vegetarians, but I get their repulsion.

PS: I love cheese, but never got into blue cheese.
