Even if you're the type that squirms at the thought of dousing your snacks with spicy condiments, there's surely something tasty for you at the California Hot Sauce Expo. Taking place over two days at the City National Grove of Anaheim, visitors will open up their palate with unlimited sauce tastings of nearly fifty companies that make ghost peppers, chipotles, cayenne, jalapeños, Carolina Reapers and other chiles their passion. Others who love the burn can fill up on spicy foods or egg on the contestants of the Guinness World Record Reaper Challenge, where defiant (and probably masochistic) daredevils will down the pepper and (hopefully) survive. Other competitions include the Bloody Mary Mix-Down, where contestants will have to concoct the perfect Bloody Mary cocktail in 90 seconds. There's also luchador wrestling, the Spicy Pizza of Doom contest, craft beer and the Chihuahua Beauty Pageant. Don't miss out— and maybe bring along the Pepto, too.
