My tongue was on fire from a food sample!

United States
February 18, 2017 8:00pm CST
While in line to order some havarti cheese in the deli section, I asked my boyfriend if he could go get me a sample. It was noon and we hadn't ate yet since we were running errands in the morning. From where I was standing the sample looked to be some sort of cheese spread that you had to spread on crackers yourself. He smothered a good amount of the cheese spread and I just 'assumed' it was cheese and chives and crackers. As I put the entire thing in my mouth since he feed me...... it was good then my tongue was on fire! It was a spicy spread! I asked him what the spread was and he didn't even check! He thought I knew. My tongue was burning and the guy cutting havarti cheese chuckled a little.

I only like spicy noodles sometimes or beef jerky once in a while. But but, I would be prepared with a beverage. :)

@infatuatedbby It's the thought that counts. Were you able to get something to dispel the heat?

@ScribbledAdNauseum Yes it sure was the thought that counts. Yep, the guy cutting the havarti cheese gave me a slice.

It is often a good idea to take precautions before putting strange things in your mouth

@infatuatedbby - I do like spicy to a point, but eventually it's just too hot.

Do you mean the havarti Danish cheese? I know it comes in several varieties, there is havarty with jalapeƱos and with red pepper, you surely had one of the two.

I chuckled reading your post. Its free and sounds like once you can get a drink it will be great. I would need the drink first, as I don't eat spicy food.

So funny! I've never had a spicy spread before, but I'm sure my tongue would be on fire too. I enjoy spicy food though. I can't say the same about spicy spreads.

One of my clients loves anything that is super spicy hot. I bought her habanero cheese and she loved it. Just so I could say I tried it, I sampled a small piece of it. Yeah, I regretted that one!

Being a Hispanic, I like hot and spicy foods but I need to talk it easy. After a while, it can damage your stomach. Maybe that cheese you ate might have had some jalapenos.
