Have you really lived or earned the right to call yourself a foodie if you’ve never had spicy foods that are on our list?
Not everyone has a flair for spice, and that’s alright. But there are some foods that are so darn fantastic that you need to have them at least once in your life.
If you’re not hooked to at least one of the following foods by the end of this list, you might want to learn about the health benefits of adding more spicy foods to your diet:
We might be a little biased here, but devil crabs are an absolute must-try for anyone with a flair for flavor. They get their name for being incredibly spicy and fiery, although newer variations of them are more palatable, and remain one of Tampa’s favorite street foods for their deliciousness!
You’d be surprised to hear about this combination, but don’t be! Spicy chocolate is a delicacy and one that’s incredibly popular, combining different varieties of both chocolate and spice. You’ll find this quite easily at most stores and can treat yourself to this uniquely delicious combination that plays off each other’s flavors to give you a unique experience.
While there’s an abundance of fast food, healthy foods, and everything in between that use a lot of spice, there’s one that stands out: spicy wings. There are lots that you can try or even DIY and cook at home using any spice you like.
Wings are known for being juicy and tender, and incredibly receptive to flavor, which is why they do exceptionally well with spice. They’re more of fast food or finger food option and are great as appetizers—but be sure to cut back before you end up with a tummy ache from too many spicy wings.
This drink had to make a list! Lemonade is an excellent drink to help refresh and liven you up, but a little cayenne pepper can give it that extra kick. Paired well with a lot of foods like salads and chicken, you can sip on spicy lemonade for a little oomph.
Food is exciting, and spice makes it all the more interesting. Give these foods a try and if you’re not a convert by the end of it, give it some time.
