Clocking in at 1,569,300 on the Scoville scale.
If you can’t handle the heat, stay out of the chip aisle. Paqui, makers of the most deliciously gourmet tortilla chips come in a number of flavours – Especial Nacho Cheese, Cool Salsa Verde, Wild Wild Ranch, and now, once again, the spicy af Carolina Reaper Madness Chip.
The chip originally appeared last year, where it sold out online in minutes, is apparently the world’s spiciest chip and has…wait for it…gotten 25% spicier since its debut last year.
The Carolina Reaper pepper held the title of hottest pepper for a number of years, clocking in at 1,569,300 on the Scoville scale, only being surpassed this past May by the Dragon’s Breath Chili Pepper.
If you’re up for the challenge, you can order the single chip –which fittingly comes packaged in a coffin – off the company’s website for only $4.99 and see if you can handle the heat, you spicy mami.
