There are two types of people in this world: those who love spice and boring people.
Seriously, I love nothing more than a meal that's got a good kick to it. Because when a meal becomes a challenge, that's when you can really enjoy your food.
And there is a psychological reason behind it. You see, spicy foods like chili peppers contain a chemical called capsaicin, which causes certain receptors in our mouths to tell ours brains that we've just eaten something HOT.
In response to this stress, our bodies produce endorphins in an attempt to help ease the pain. Endorphins are essentially natural pain killers that make us happy - and are released during certain activities like exercise, laughing, drinking wine, and even having sex.
So, basically, if you don't like spicy foods, you don't like being happy and I don't like you.
However, all spice lovers like myself have been met with the awkward moment where we've decided to head to a restaurant, order a meal, been told it is spicy, only to be met with a bland plate of boring.
Well, Amazon is now selling the perfect solution: a mini hot sauce bottle keychain you can take anywhere.
Stocked by Pocket Sriracha, the design for this adorable keychain is exactly that; a mini sriracha hot sauce bottle. But, of course, the bottle can be filled with your favorite brand of hot sauce.

This is the perfect gift for a chili lover. What says "I love you" more than "I never want you to be without flavor ever again"?
