If you’re the type of person who really likes spicy food or just enjoys a culinary challenge of any sort, then you’re definitely going to want to try the hottest chip in the world. Yep, it’s not just super spicy. It’s not just incredibly hot. It’s not just bring tears to your eyes and a tingle to your tongue kinda hot. This chip is so intense that you only get one per bag. And we’re assured, that’s all anyone can handle.
Paqui’s Carolina Reaper chip (reaper, as in DEATH) is made with the hottest pepper in the world. It’s liberally coated in dust made from Carolina Reaper peppers, which hit the Scoville scale at 2.2 million units. Translation: IT’S UNBEARABLY INTENSELY HOT!!!
The tiny treat is so wildly hot that they dare you to take on their #onechipchallenge. Yep, one chip. That’s all it takes. Brand Manager for Paqui Chips, Jeff Day, told Mashable, “The single chip serving size is more than just a cute marketing idea, it’s kind of necessary for the chip. The reason that we’re selling this as one chip is because quite honestly, that’s all that you need. That’s all that anyone needs.”
But, really, how hot could one little chip possibly be? Well, Jeff claims, “It’s the hottest chip you’ll ever have, I can guarantee you that. After you eat that one chip, trust me, you’re not looking to dig back into the bag and have a second one.”
So intriguing. Check out the video below and watch as peeps try to brave the wildly over-the-top, burn-off-your-tongue heat.
