When a food or snack comes in just one piece in a packaging that says “hot as hell”, well, you better believe it. Lil’ Nitro is one such snacks. Billed as the world’s hottest gummy bear, Lil’ Nitro is the Paqui Carolina Reaper Madness Chip equivalent, but for the sweet tooth.
On second thought. I don’t think it will have any sweetness at all. I think Lil’ Nitro could be far worst in assaulting your tongue because, you need to chew it for god knows how long. Lil’ Nitro has some “key features” including “it might be small but it’s extremely f*ucking spicy!”
Obviously, that won’t scare every chili enthusiasts away. But the following “feature” probably will. Apparently, this chewing sweet treat has been infused with “a scorching hot 9 million Scoville chili extract” that is said to be 900 times hotter than a typical Jalapeño pepper.
Oh wait, those are not enough warnings about how hot it is? Then how about this: “…once you’ve tasted Lil’ Nitro there’ll be no doubt in your mind – only fear, regret and panic caused by the crazy pain you’re experiencing.”
I’d say that is a fair warning right there. And yes, it is offered in a package with a single gummy bear because, one is enough to make the tongue burn like it was in the deepest pit of hell. Just one.
I will not take up the challenge. The last time I accidentally chewed on an unidentified pepper (I suspect it was a chili from South Kalimantan because, it happened when I was in Bali) hidden among the innocent salad, my tongue burned for days.
So, nope. Am not going do any spicy challenge, let alone chewing one that could so much hotter. However, if you wish to take up the #lilnitrochallenge, you are welcome to pick up the Lil’ Nitro The World’s Hottest Gummy Bear from Firebox.com for US$18 a pop.
