Candy made from one of the world's hottest pepper
About 100 years ago, a man named Wilbur Scoville devised a system for rating the hotness of peppers. Your typical banana pepper scores in the range of 100-900. A cayenne is in the 30,000-50,000 range, and a habanero tops out at around 300,000. But those lightweights aren't what is used to create Spicy Watermelon Candy.
Instead, it is the Bhut Jolokia which packs the bite in these amazing candies. This pepper (commonly referred to as the Ghost Pepper) boasts a Scoville rating of 1,000,000! To help put this in perspective, law enforcement pepper spray is about 5,000,000 Scoville units.
Now, before you call us insane, please note that only a fraction of this ridiculously hot pepper is used to make the candy. The manufacturer went to great lengths to ensure that the sugar cuts through the hotness to create a wonderful blend of sweet and spicy.
Ghost pepper + delicious candy = hot dang!
Our Ghost Pepper Candy is a meticulous, hand-made blend of ghost pepper and sweet watermelon hard candy. Don't worry — it isn't overwhelming! The sweetness of the hard candy cuts through the spice to make for a sweet and spicy candy treat.
