There’s A New ‘Hottest Pepper In The World’ And It Tastes DELICIOUS In This New Hot Sauce

by 8 months ago

Take a seat, Carolina Reaper. Smokin’ Ed Currie — the founder of the PuckerButt Pepper Company and the capsaicin-loving pioneer behind the ultra-spicy Carolina Reaper — recently created a new “hottest pepper in the world.” It’s called “Pepper X” and it gives Dragon’s Breath — the most-recent “hottest pepper in the world” that I wrote about in May — a very serious run for it’s money. On the Scoville Scale, it boasts a rating of 3.18 million Scoville units to Dragon’s Breath’s 2.48 million.

You can find it in the new hot sauce called The Last Dab, a fiery collaboration by NYC’s Hot Sauce shop The Heatonist.

Our friends over at First We Feast sent a bottle to our L.A. office to try out. This makes me a very happy man because (A. I’m obsessed with weird, rare hot sauces and (B. I believe hot sauce an elixir of life that really makes you feel alive. I have a collection of over 40 rare sauces sitting in my apartment that I’m quite proud of, used for all sorts of culinary occasions (…don’t drink my Bloody Marys if you can’t handle heat).

So, I hit the dab by throwing this delicious god juice on my chicken-and-rice kebobs today.
