Oh, it’s on! Last week, I asked Naomi in the front office to pick up some spicy chips so we could host a little lunchtime challenge. Well, she went me one better – first, creating the above prototype banner for the event; then, forwarding me the following email…
We’ve done some research on your spicy chip challenge and would like to propose that we expand to an all-round spicy food competition.
Unfortunately, in Canada we do not have great access to the world’s spicier chips and the ultimate spicy chip, the Paqui Carolina Reeper, is no longer being manufactured. (We did find one on eBay but Robbie is being unreasonable and refuses to pay $120 for a single chip).
1) Spicy Foods will remain secret until the time of presentation.
2) Competitors must finish within the allotted time in order to move on to the next round.
Up to Round 3 seems doable, but Round 4 is pretty damn red and Round 5… Look out!
