Like It Spicy?

4 Comments

Just something I was wondering…

After hearing yet another commercial for a spicy food product (sriracha nachos), I started thinking, what’s up with this trend lately for spicy foods? It seems like just about every restaurant has been featuring some sort of special spicy food. For example, Hardee’s has featured burgers with jalapenos recently and Wendy’s now has burgers and fries with ghost peppers. I know there are some others, but those are the first to come to mind.

Is spicy food really that popular lately? If so, why? It’s not that I have anything against spicy food. I like a good, mild spicy item every now and then (though spicy doesn’t seem to agree with me much anymore). I’m just curious as to a reason for the trend and if it really is that popular.

  1. Good questionable! I’m more of a sweet person, than spicy but I understand the appeal.

  2. I lived in Texas for a number of years and spicy, and I mean HOT spicy, isn’t a passing trend. It’s considered normal. I’m not a big fan of something THAT spicy.
