For those that may not be familiar with the Reaper it is the current record holder, that’s right the worlds hottest! The Carolina Reaper, now famously known as the world’s hottest chili pepper, averages 1,569,300 SHU on the Scoville Scale with levels that even peak over 2,200,000 SHU. In other words, it’s a pepper that’s a 100 times hotter than a Jalapeno. The Carolina Reaper, which is a hybrid chili pepper, is apart of the Capsicum chinense species; having originally been called “HP22B” by it’s creator Ed Currie, owner and runner of the PuckerButt Pepper Company which is located in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
While that may not sound like something people would want to put anywhere near their mouths, taste buds apparently can’t get enough as the super hot pepper business continues to get even hotter; which has now become one of America’s fastest=growing industries. Spicy food is also appearing almost 15% more on menus from 2010. As for Sriracha hot chili sauce, the brand sold over 20 million bottles just last year. Ketchup is also getting hotter with the release of Heinz’s Hot & Spicy Ketchup. Red Robin has even introduced a new line of sandwiches and burgers dressed with habanero sauce, called island fire, in addition to their burger that features a scorching ghost pepper sauce. And now, in 2013, a majority of Americans are saying they prefer hot or spicy foods.
