Fort Mill’s “Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper” has indeed been affirmed as the world’s most hottest chili pepper by Guinness World Records.
This isn’t the first run through Ed Currie, who possesses the PuckerButt Pepper Company where the super-hot chilis are developed, has had the pleasure of guaranteeing of the most smoking pepper on the planet.
He initially made the specialty in 2014 when Guinness declared his first Carolina Reaper had taken the title.
The new pepper, be that as it may, is significantly more sultry. Coming in at a record normal of 1,641,000 SHU (Scoville warm units), it’s in excess of 71,000 SHU more sultry than Currie’s past record-holder.
To place that in context – jalapeno peppers score in the vicinity of 2,500 and 8,000 SHU. On Monday, WBTV’s Good News columnist Kristen Hampton attempted the new pepper live on her Facebook page.
Evidently, she didn’t take in her lesson in 2014 when she attempted Currie’s first round of Carolina Reapers.
Hampton isn’t the main individual to take the mouth-desensitizing test. In 2015, a 9-year-old kid’s video became a web sensation when he attempted the pepper on YouTube, and in 2016 a man set a different universe record when he ate 22 Carolina Reapers in under a moment.
