Like a ginormous Pixy Stix, but spicy!

A donkey-kick of spice + a gentle kiss of sugar

We like-a the spice at Vat19 just as much as we like-a the mustache. So, it should come as no surprise that we freaked out when we first tasted the spicy, yet sweet Ghost Pepper Fire Dust. Plus, who can resist a great name like Fire Dust!

So remove the cap from the tube, tip it back, and see how much Fire Dust you can handle straight to your dome!

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What are the ingredients?

Answer: Dextrose, Malic Acid, Artificial Flavors & Colors, FD&C Yellow #5 & 6, Blue #1, Red #3 & 40, Ghost Pepper & Habanero Powder

Question: Is this spicier than the Ghost Pepper Gumballs?

Answer: Yes, it definitely packs a bit more heat. Each Ghost Pepper Gumball has a SHU rating of approximately 30,000 - 50,000. Fire Dust, on the other hand, is closer to 150,000 - 200,000.

Question: Is it safe for kids to eat?

Answer: That's a tricky question, actually. It's not really a matter of safety, but of comfort. This level of spice won't injure a child, but younger kids (under the age of 10) may find it uncomfortable. It has a SHU rating that is roughly the same as a habanero pepper. That being said, it still has a discernible level of cherry sweetness.

In Karate terms: If the Ghost Pepper Gumball kicks like a green belt, the Ghost Pepper Fire Dust is more like a 1st degree black belt.

Question: Does it taste good or is it all pain and no flavor?

Answer: Oh, it's got flavor! There's definitely a fair amount of spice, but it's not like those ridiculous spicy food challenges where you'd rather cut out your tongue than eat another bite. No, the heat of the Ghost Pepper Fire Dust doesn't overwhelm the sweet flavors. But, you're certainly not going to confuse it with a Pixy Stix.

Bottom line: Ghost Pepper Fire Dust is the spicy equivalent of a Pixy Stix. It's good, it's spicy, and you won't regret giving it a try!
