i love hot and spicy foods. but there are just times when i cant take the hotness and the spicyness of the dish, or worse, i chewed on some real hot pepper! what do i do? i down it with water. but i think it doesnt help though, i think it just helps psychologically, knowing that i am trying to put off the burning sensation by water. im just curious what really is the most effective way to drown the overspicy taste? juice? wateR? softdrink? or tea? what?

I also like to eat hot and spicy foods. When I was younger it used to be a different story though. Your story sounds funny by the way. Water is the first thing I run to when I find my food to be too spicy. It helps me, but I have to drinks a lot of it so I won't feel the burning sensation. Soft drinks don't help at all, not even soda. Whenever I drink soda after eating something spicy, the soda tastes bitter. The same thing happens when I take juice too. It leaves a bitter taste. Now, don't get me started on tea! =O

yeah, its funny now, but when it is happening to me, oh men, it really isnt funny. its like i feel as if im a dragon which has the ability to puff fire due to the super hotness of the food! :P lolz. yeah, i know, softdrinks doesnt help, and so does tea, and much more for water! well, guess i should try those suggestions which involve milk and yogurt. :) maybe you should try it next time too. :)

I take water to pacity the heat of spices.I relish less spcicy food. It gives me a kind of statisfaction to take moderately spicy food. Some spices are good for health but some of them can be harmful also, if taken in plenty like red chillies.

I think I've told you this before, but I just loooove spicy food! Sometimes it's really hard to handle it without a drink! In my opinion, any juice will do the job pretty well. I don't like to drink soda, because it seems to get bitter when it mixes with the spicy taste in my mouth. It's weird. And I rarely drink water while I'm eating, so I prefer juices! :)

Hi, there! I do love hot and spicy food. My level of hot and spicy is really amazing. Very seldom for me to run for water if I feel that burning sensation. But if I do feel really hot, I just drink a lot of water. It won't really help (I know it... ) but what I do next is quite helpful for me. I will take sweets ... :)

Hi. I hate spicy food and i cant tolerate it not even when it's only slightly hot. I accidentally chewed a chunk of red pepper last week and it was hell. What I did was took a pinch of white sugar and smeared it in my mouth and downed it with water. Milk also works for me but spreading sugar in my mouth works better. :)
