    Damn Pizza burned me - I hate it when that happens - the roof of my mouth feels like its been through a meat grinder...

    Anything with melted cheese in it I guess is likely to be a 3rd degree burn risk - what are your scariest food experiences?

    Not specifically food, but food related. When I was a teenager, I was making poptarts or something and I reached up to unplug the hot toaster when I was done and somehow it fell over straight onto my arm and gave me a bad 3rd degree burn. I still have a small scar from that.

    Toasters can be deadly.

    For some reason, kettle-cooked, thick-cut potato chips with sea salt and vinegar seem to tear my mouth apart. Could it be sodium and acid? They're not corrosive are they?

    Do you chew them well before you swallow, or let the sharp edges do their thing?
    I have a similar situation with hard things like toast and chips ripping my throat as well. I've just stopped eating them, and try to chew other things better.

    As with hot food from the oven/microwave- I let them cool off a minute or more before I eat since the food continue to cook from within even after the heating/microwaving stops.
    What's the point of eating good and hot food if it hurts my mouth and needs days to heal?

    Scary moments can be greatly reduced by using common sense, like making sure your food is thoroughly prepared before you try to eat it.

    "Ice cream headaches" from drinking something too cold too fast.

    I have a thing for kids cereals like Capn Crunch, Froot Loops, Apple Jacks and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. And they all tear up my mouth pretty bad. I love them but I pay for it.

    I can't really eat or drink anything that's even slightly hot, it always make the roof of my mouth burn and peel.

    My arms are also covered in burn marks from drunken cooking sessions. Not really the food's fault though.

    Happens to me as well, no idea why. But that stuff is so good.

    I don't recall any personal trauma with food outside of my brother grossing me out as a kid because he'd eat anything that ever lived and I'm a vegetarian.

    But just recently a cousin of mine died from eating shrimp. It was awful--even if we have trouble telling the story without laughing--and the night before another cousin's barmitzvah and nobody was told so as to not ruin the barmitzvah and because, well, how do you tell the rabbi he died eating shrimp.

    He was in his high 80s and getting to be in bad health and other cousins took him out to dinner the night before the family was getting together and he choked on shrimp, then wound up with a heart attack right there in the restaurant and died. Just like that. From shrimp.

    So now when my cousins and I are getting off the phone, our parting words to each other are: "don't have the shrimp."

    Brain freezes! I used to get them from just sipping slushy Margaritas at the Rio Grande. Major pain, I used to stand up and try to shake out the freeze. It never helped on the first so I would have a second. Still no success in preventing them with the second.
