Carolina Reaper Chilli

We all love a chilli don't we?

Well.. maybe not all of us, but that sounded like a suitable opening sentence for this blog post.

I mean we have some chilli products in our online shop, but none of them use the hottest chilli pepper in the World.. our Chilli sauces, mayonnaises and dressings are reasonable and delicious!! Why not check out our Chilli & Garlic Dressing, Hot Chilli Mayonnaise, Chilli & Lemongrass Sauce and Sweet Chilli, Ginger & Lime Sauce products.

Anyway, the hottest chilli in the World is suitably named the 'Carolina Reaper'. Nice!

Appearance wise, the Carolina Reaper is red, round, knobbly and rough and has a small pointed tail.

Heat wise, it measures 1,569,300 on average on the Scoville Scale.. That's HOT! In fact, it has been declared the Hottest Chilli in the World by Guinness World Records back in 2013.

Check out this video of a couple of young girls who, presumably, didn't realise just how hot the Carolina Reaper Chilli pepper is devilcrying

I don't think we'll be trying this on Friday afternoon in the office end of week meeting.
