August 11, 2012

These ghost pepper super hot candy balls are not for the faint of heart.  Made with ghost pepper powder (Bhut Jolokia) and coated in it, these candies reach a heat level that will literally knock your socks off.  According to the Scoville scale, the ghost pepper exceeds over one million Scoville units (for comparison, a jalapeno ranges between 3,500 to 8,000 units and a habanero pepper can reach up to 350,00 units).  The company has even gone to the trouble to place the following warning label on the package: Wash your hands after touching these balls.  Ghost pepper (Bhut Jolokia) powder can cause skin irritation.Seriously, be careful.  If you are daring enough to take the ghost pepper candy plunge, you can purchase these spicy balls online.
