I’m a big fan of Atomic Fireballs, love to crunch them for the cinnamon and capsaicin burn. 3500 on the Scoville scale, what a treat!
In a similar vein, I’ve enjoyed other cinnamon concoctions, a la “red hots”, cinnamon Jelly Bellies and licorice, etc.
I’ve also enjoyed other capsaicin-laden sweets, including Tabasco Jelly Bellies, Toad Sweat dessert sauces, and custom-crafted habanero chocolate truffles.
Extreme sour can be a nice trip, too. Lemonheads and other super sour stuff are old favorites. Add a fizz, as they do with Zotz candy, and I can enjoy them all day, quietly foaming at the mouth.
Ginger candy bites back too, and as such it delights me.
Salmiak licorice works for me too, especially the sweet and salty varieties like the Rondos. Though after about two, I’m generally sated.
But I’d like to expand my range. I’ve seen mention of wasabi candies, but have not yet procured any. I’ve also seen lollipops with scorpions in them, but I’m not sure what the reward is for getting down to that particular arachnid.
Anyone got suggestions/opinions regarding candies that go beyond sweet, that work as a delightful thrill?
