    How Hot Can You Handle?

    On a scale of 1-10, how spicy can you handle your food? You know, when you go to those asian wok restaurants where you fill up a plate and stir fry it for you? They have a spicy scale, and how hot can you handle it?

    Who on earth must can handle a 10? Like does anyone really order that? The guy who got his food stir fried in front of me ordered a 3 and I was on fire! I ordered zero on mine haha. I can barely even handle cayenne pepper. I just don't enjoy the feeling of my mouth burning.

    My dad says as he got older his taste buds got weaker and he craved more and more spices. He just pours on the hot sauce these days.

    Hello ,

    I want my mouth to be on fire. I enjoy spicy food a lot. I would say I could handle a 7 or 8. I would assume a 9 or 10 is like ghost pepper hot. I can take the heat I have built my tolerance over years of hot sauce and peppers.

    Hi Iceberg,

    I'm probably at about a 2 or 3. I don't like food that is so spicy that is all you taste and can't even enjoy the food. My dad and husband can eat peppers, pour on the hot sauce, and I just watch their heads bead up with sweat and wonder how they can enjoy it. I don't mind jalapeños in certain dishes but you wont catch me eating habaneros or anything crazy hot. I don't put hot sauce on anything and if I have salsa it's only mild-medium spicy. If I have anything too spicy, I'm constantly drinking to cool my mouth off.

    Hi blceberg,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    To be honest, I'm not a fan of spicy food and probably could handle a 1. Spicy foods gives me heart burn, makes my eyes water, nose water, and I must drink lots of water after eating them which is why I can't have any spicy foods. My siblings on the other hand, could eat lot's of spicy foods without any problems. Their probably a 8, 9, or 10 but I'm just a 1 or 0.

    thanks for the forum and have a great day!
