Snap Meals for Spice Lovers – Heat Levels Ranked!

March 21, 2022

Whether you’re a spicy food lover who adores the flavor-boosting warmth of mild chiles, or someone who craves the rush and intensity of really spicy food, or maybe your taste buds live somewhere in the Goldilocks Zone – well, you’ve come to the right place. We’re breaking down the heat levels of our Snap meals so you can find the spiciness that suits your taste buds!


Mild:  🌶 

These dishes have a mild spice level where the heat plays a supporting role in lifting and deepening the dish’s flavors. This low level of heat may not even be noticeable to some, but for those with a sensitive palette — think of the warm, round notes of black pepper and the brightness of ginger. 



Medium:  🌶  🌶 

These dishes have a heat level that not only boosts the flavors, it also has a noticeable presence.  This heat provides a full-mouth warmth that may be noticeable in the back of the throat — think of the grounding heat provided by poblanos and Hungarian paprika. 



Hot:  🌶  🌶  🌶 

These dishes have a heat level that feels as equally present as the other flavors in the food. Especially noticeable on the middle and back parts of the tongue. By no means do any of these dishes rank high on the Scoville Scale, think more of the heat that jalapeños and cayenne pepper provide.

    I have the opposite problem. My level of spice tolerance is nonexistent. I find things too spicy that others claim have no spiciness. I had to stop my last meal service because I couldn’t find enough meals that weren’t too spicy for me.
