Catching fire

When you’re one of the world's most painful peppers, you don’t need fancy packaging. The Carolina Reaper Pepper is presented unadorned. There are no directions or accessories. There's merely a small transparent box containing one of the spiciest peppers known to man. Jason Vorhees didn’t need an elaborate costume either.

The pepper has been left whole—seeds and all—and dried for preservation. The resulting wrinkled pepper looks like something alien and very dangerous.

Absurdly spicy
Like a capsule stuffed with capsaicin.

Objectively hot

We’re not lying when we say that this thing is crazy hot—we have proof!

According to the Scoville scale (the definitive rating system in the spice world), the Carolina Reaper Pepper is around 220x hotter than a jalapeño. And this isn’t just a snack sprinkled with spice; this is the straight-up pepper in all its evil glory. So slice off a sliver to experience the heat. Trust us, a little bit goes a long way.
