Mingulos peppers. . . .

. . . don't exist. I just found this out. Ever since I saw Donnie Brasco many years ago, I always wanted to try a mingulos pepper. During Joe Pistone's speech on the meaning of "Forget about it," he says "If something's the best in the world, like mingulos peppers. . . .forget about it!" So I work with an Italian guy, and I asked if he had tried mingulos peppers, and if I could find some somewhere. He informed me that Pistone actually said "Mia (as in short for "Mama Mia"), those peppers. . . forget it." Now I will never be able to enjoy that mysteriously awesome pepper.
