Wendy's Hot Chili Seasoning

Like millions of Americans, I suffer from a 9-5 job. I work in an office building that has little to no kitchen utilities, so it’s almost inmpossible for me to bring my own lunch everyday. Thus I am forced out into the world of Fast food everyday at 12.
For today’s lunch I decided to venture to Wendy’s and try their chili. That’s where the scary part came in. The chili itself tasted fine, a little watery at best. But they also gave me two gold packets of what they have labeled as “Wendy’s hot Chili Seasoning” – This stuff is awful! Has anyone ever read the ingredients?

Ingredients: Water, corn syrup, salt, distilled vinegar, natural flavors, xanthan gum and caramel color.

No what in that list of ingredients makes it Hot? Absolutely nothing, but I found my mouth burning. Why? Because of all the chemicals they put into it. Anyone else have as bad of an experience with these little gold packets of death?
