Paqui is no stranger to making some of the hottest tortilla chips you can buy. Most people would even have a hard time stomaching their already popular, Haunted Ghost Pepper chips.
But there’s something special about Paqui’s latest creation that has a lot of people talking. The appropriately named, Don’t Fear The Reaper chip by Paqui is shockingly sold one chip at a time! Packaged in a 1.6 oz coffin container, and priced at $4.99, this chip packs the wild punch of spice that one could only receive from the world’s hottest pepper, the Carolina Reaper.
The Carolina Reaper has a 1.57 million Scoville scale rating.
To put that into perspective, the considerably hot, Habenero pepper, which has a Scoville scale rating of anywhere between 80,000 and 600,000, even at it’s absolute hottest packs only a third of the power of the Carolina Reaper.
When these chips hit store in late September/early October buyers are encourage to participate in the #onechipchallenge, filming themselves eating the spicy chip for a chance to win a Go-Pro camera.
