An August 2013 report shared by NBC and Fox News found that there is a link between people who eat spicy foods and personality. That's right, you no longer need to look up your monthly attitude by horoscope, your personality and chiles say a lot about you. Just go to your local restaurant and the food you choose actually shows a lot about you! The new study, recently presented at the 2013 Institute of Food Technologists' annual meeting, suggests there’s a correlation between preferences for spicy food and risk-taking personalities. Take it one step further - the people who eat chilis get a high adrenaline rush (due to extreme heat), making them more susceptible to taking on risks. At Ashely Food Company, we know all too well that our customers are risk-takers. Despite the warning label on our products, it's too hard to say no to perfection.
