* At one point in the ''[[{{Belgariad}} Mallorean]]'', during a state banquet, the heroes try a seemingly-inoffensive rice dish. Turns out it's from their world's answer to India, populated primarily by elephant herders who even treat mealtime as tests of personal courage, and "spend the rainy season trying to build bonfires in each other's stomachs". As most of the cast lunge for the water decanter, Sadi calmly keeps eating the stuff. He's not affected because he's used to being ''poisoned''.

* Hotroot pepper in the ''{{Redwall}}'' books. Best guess is that "hotroot" is the local term for a type of horseradish. The otters love the stuff, especially in "shrimp'n'hotroot soup", and hold contests to see how much they can use at once.

** ''The Compleat Discworld Atlas'' mentions the Vanglemesht Red Python Chilli. A single pepper could flavour five hundred pots of beans, as long as everyone liked them spicy. It is, of course, an ingredient in Wow-Wow Sauce.

* This is what happens when Literature/AbleTeam try eating the food in Sri Lanka. It's even worse that night when the food comes out again, described by one team member as 'napalm shits'. Ironically that saves their lives, as a hit team tries to kill them when they're asleep in their beds, only to find all three awake and annoyed on the toilet.

* In Janet Kagan's Franchise/StarTrek novel ''Uhura's Song'', the catlike Eeaiouans use the berry of a native bush as a spice. They call it a "tailkinker" and a favorite prank is to slip a few of the fresh berries into a dish rather than the processed version. Think getting something you think contains a bit of red chili flakes but instead has whole Sichuan peppers in it. Yeah, like that.

** The curry Susan tastes in ''Discworld/SoulMusic'' causes the ''air'' to explode after she throws it away.
*** Um, no it doesn't. She just has a taste of it and throws it away.
