What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 254: Keeping Things Spicy


Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

This week, I thought we’d explore all things spicy on Etsy, from spice racks and seasonings to more, um private things. It’s a weird combination, I know. I was originally going to limit it to the food variety, but such hilarious things kept coming up, I couldn’t resist the mashup.

For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts!

With a name like Chub Rub, this one could have gone either way, but don’t worry, it’s a spice. By ChubIndustries
Ladies, when headed to the viper pit (which appears to be suffering with some kind of alligator situation), make sure you wear one of your hardier pasties. Only one, though.

I really love hot and sweet together, but I’m too much of a coward to try this toffee made with ghost peppers, even though it looks great. By CowboyToffeeCompany
I was going to pass by this item, but then I got curious about the comments. They delivered. “I’m a therapist and needed some good conversation starter questions for my clients…”

  1. My husband and I are big fans of spicy food but our combined genetics seem to have bred spice monsters because our two oldest sons may actually have an addiction to really hot spices. They are currently working their way through a jar of ghost pepper salsa they bought at a Christmas market and, even though they start grunting and screeching in pain and their eyes are watering, they keep eating it. Weirdos. They add at least Tabasco to almost every meal too.

    When we first moved here, we were always scouting the area for places to go check out or possible dining venues. One day, my husband spotted a place called ‘Spice Tonight’ in a strip mall and got excited that it was a curry house or maybe an Indian supermarket. Nope. As you have probably guessed, it was an adult shop. Every time we drive past, the kids laugh about it and have to remind him.

  2. Landysjalapenos are delicious. So glad you mentioned them. I put them in/on everything- I am totally addicted. They are just enough spice and sweet to make everything taste better-, pasta, pizza, vegetable, salsa, cheese, rice, dips, the list goes on and on. Those of you reading this – buy them; they are delicious and you will become as addicted as I am.
