My addiction is spicy foods. As a matter of fact, I'm entirely addicted to habaneros--so much so that if I make a salsa with them I usually eat it with chips for lunch and dinner, often making myself completely ill in the process. And then I'll get up in the middle of the night and eat more if there's some left.

Right now my mouth is watering and I think I'm going to have to make some tonight unless the idea gets vetoed by my girlfriend, who absolutely hates it when I make salsa since I usually feel pretty foul for a couple days afterward.

;-D

Haha.. that reminds me of how I became unable to eat jalapeno's. When I was around ten years old, I grabbed a jar of jalapeno's from the fridge, got a bowl of ice cream, and proceeded to alternate. It took until I turned 21 to become as sick as I was that night. Haven't like jalapeno since.

You may not be addicted to habaneros so much as the endorphins released by eating them.

I've heard that a number of times and suspect you're correct, although I truly do think it is the best tasting pepper in the world. As a side note, I love jalapeños too but not the pickled kind--they taste funny to me. I can only eat the fresh ones these days.

But when my stomach feels messed up I often find myself craving my salsa and ice cream (I'm lactose intolerant) in order to "flush" my system appropriately. Not too smart, but I tend to listen to my body so I can make some salsa. ;-D

I don't really recommend eating too many of the 2nd most hot peppers in the world one after another. Using them is a salsa that is only flavored with them is just fine with me. Mango habanero hot wings are the stuff. ;-D

Jalapeno eating contests are too easy. Now if you can put down more than 3 habeneros...... :-o

I love candy, but don't really eat too much. However, give me a pie, cake, or especially ice cream over a candy bar any day of the week.
