I tried one today, from the Burger King in Dedham, Mass.

Well, It has some heat.  Not overwhelming, but enough to let you notice
that it's there.  For normal (non C-H) people, it's probably very 
spicy.  While and after eating it, there was the noticeable tingle on my
lips and inside my mouth.  I didn't notice any back of the mouth
tingle/grab to it.

So, did I like it, in a word NO!  I don't expect that this will be 
lasting long.  It's probably too spicy for people like my mother (a non
chile-head), and not that tasty for chile-heads, if I'm any judge.
I won't be buying a second one.

FWIW, I am not one of those Chile-heads that likes everything spicy.  I
just didn't care for the taste of this Fiesta Whopper that much, so given
the choice of a cheese Whopper and a Fiesta Whopper, I'd choose the plain
one.  Please don't get me wrong, I ate it all, and it wasn't bad, but it
wasn't good either.  This is on the relative scale for fast food at 
Burger King, which I like, but it really isn't my idea of what a good 
hamburger is, BTW.

Just to calibrate things, I've tried "The Bread" at Jim McGrath's hotluck, 
and it was hot, but I didn't go running to get anything to drink while or
after eating it.  It was very hot though, hotter than anything else I've
tried, outside of Dave's, of course.
