This cute and innocent looking gummy bear may look tiny and tempting to eat, but Lil’ Nitro packs a punch you might not be able to handle!
It’s Scoville rating reaches well into the millions of units, making it 900 times hotter than a jalapeno, and the world’s hottest gummy bear.
The creators of this spicy treat, have previously released some other devious edibles, such as the world’s hottest lollipop and the world’s hottest candy, now they present their record breaking gummy bear.
It may look like a standard gummy bear, but it’s not holding a stick on dynamite in it’s hand for nothing – that’s a warning!
It contains a chilli pepper extract 900 times hotter than a jalapeno, and is also several times hotter than the Dragon’s Breath, the Caroline Reaper, and the Pepper X, which are considered the hottest peppers on the planet.
The extract used in Lil’ Nitro rates as 9,000,000 Scoville units, so even though there are other ingredients in there, including raspberry flavoring, it’s still rated up to 7,200,000 units. To put it in perspective, the Carolina Reaper has an average of around 2,200,000 units – so be careful!
The gummy bears come individually packed in blister packs, and one will be more than you would want to eat at once.
A sweet this hot won’t kill you, but will make it feel like your mouth, throat and stomach are on fire, so make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into before trying it.
And it goes without saying, keep it well out of the reach of children.
If you’re feeling brave, or you know someone who would be up for the challenge, you can order the Lil’ Nitro Gummy Bear from the Flamethrower Candy website, for $6.99.
