Maybe I have a genetic defect or something but I don't find Yellow Mustard or regular Paprika to be spicy at all.. some people I know think of those 2 as spicy tho.

Probably the same people who find mayonnaise spicy.. Actually, it would depend on the type of mustard or paprika. There are hot varieties of each. But the usual, run of the mill types, not at all.

Not the kind that comes out of the jar but try Colemans mustard and it hurts. It's a powder that comes in a can.

There are people who call any flavor that they find to be intense in some way "spicy." I don't get it, but there it is. Mustard can have a sharp flavor (that's kind of the point), but I wouldn't deem it to be spicy (unless it is spicy mustard, not regular, garden variety yellow mustard). Paprika comes in all ranges of heat, but the most commonly imported (and the average paprika sold in grocery store spice sections, plain old paprika, not hot paprika, smoked paprika, etc.) is fairly sweet and pungent,not so much on the heat end of things.

I find them not spicy enough.

bout the only time I prefer classic yellow mustard is for corn dogs or hot dogs with nothing else on them.

Spicy brown Creole mustard and hot smoked hungarian paprika for me.

Try a dollop of Colman's yellow mustard then get back to us.

Paprika barely has any taste, let alone spiciness.

It depends on what your taste buds are used to. Spicy does not necessarily mean hot.

You need to try good quality paprika. It has a lot of flavor. I was given two different Spanish varieties that come in little metal cans. One sweet (dulce) and one spicy (pimenton). They were a revelation to me.

I didn't grow up eating spicy foods. I never found yellow mustard to be spicy. Paprika can be if you use too much.
