If you enjoy a good cry when you’re having your afternoon snack, Paqui’s latest, limited-edition grub is something you should try.
Paqui’s Carolina Reaper tortilla chips, quickly dubbed ‘the world’s spiciest chip’, is said to pack serious taste and tears. It’s seasoned with – you guessed it – the Carolina Reaper pepper, which is the Guinness Book of World Records holder for hottest pepper on the planet. They’re sold specially, individually, in coffin-shaped boxes, which is quite fitting.
“The Paqui Carolina Reaper chip delivers such a gripping tidal wave of heat that people can only handle one chip,” a Paqui spokesman told TIME.
Like an orchestra performance, the first bite it tame, bearable; it’s a confidence builder to the unsuspecting snacker. Then, it builds to its crescendo, typically climaxing with a sprint to the nearest tap, and glasses, on glasses, on glasses of water.
Sounds like fun, right? If you want to roast your taste buds, it’s available for a limited time in the U.S. and at paqui.com for $4.99.
