    I have some of this coming in my next order. I know this store down the road sells some sort of chili pepper seasoning that you sprinkle on fruit, so I was thinking of trying something like a melon with some capsicum (I like fruit and menthol, so doesn't seem like too big of a stretch). Has anyone used this before? What sort of flavors does it work well with?

    I haven't tried it, but since no one's replied so far and I do have some experience with capsicum in general...
    It really isn't a flavor, but the ingredient in any hot pepper that makes it hot. So....I would think it would be more a 'feeling' like koolada than a flavoring, thus it could be mixed with any flavor. It would give a hot (read burning!) effect whereas the koolada is cool.

    That's exactly what I was hoping for. I think it could be neat to have some "hot" fruit flavors!

    As an diehard chili fan, the hotness from the sprinkles they put on fruit(available in the fruit isle here) didn't give you gas. Lol

    I have a bottle of pure cap in front of me. The color is an amber color and one drop will light you up. Lol

    The effect of.inhaling cap has some medicinal values but be warned it can effect some negatively. You will have to Google that one as I am on my phone and can't supply a link.

    I know some people are more sensitive to it than others, but I'm a bit of a chili head myself (my western omlette isn't a western omlet until it's orange with Tabasco), so my body should be accepting of it. I'll still exercise caution!

    Lol Tabasco. Child's play. Lol
    my daily hot sauce is a habanero/Scotch bonnet mixture. Zatarains make a nice Cajun seasoning that I use on everything(tastes more like seasoning salt to me now) but I have a friend who makes one out of ghost peppers.

    No experience here, but I've thought about it myself and never tried it. I read, and watched a video or two, from those that have and I did not get the impression it would help my mixes.

    I am interested in your experience with it though!

    Don't do it in your DIY please. Just don't. I really don't want to see you in the ER.

    It has been done a number of times and there are videos. Never seen anyone get close to needing medical attention.

    Done or not / this type of use may work OK for some, but the risk of a reaction is certainly higher in others .. advocating a topical medication ingredient is a bad idea .. and a much higher likelyhood of problems ... what's next .. ?? Ben-Gay .. ??
