You really can’t eat fast food anymore without adding some juice of the Gods, also known as “sauce”. I’m not talking about any culinary sauce that’s all full of flavor – I’m talking about the good ol’ “squeeze ‘em out of a tube” sauces. And like with humans, sauces have a very simple rule: hotter is always better. Unlike humans, however, sauces have an official hotness scale: the Scoville meter. This scale was invented purely to put a number on how badly a chili pepper will mess you up if you eat it.
Let’s take a look at the hottest sauces. Why? Because that’s what badasses have for dinner. And breakfast. We don’t eat lunch. It’s just not our thing.
Henry’s Hot Sauce Carolina Reaper
The name sounds ominous enough, and at about 1 million Scoville units it’s sure to set your mouth on fire. Twice! It’s based on peppers, like you’d expect from a hot sauce.
Mad Dog 357 Gold Edition
Despite the Carolina Reaper’s 1 million units being just from the Reaper brand of peppers, this bottle has the same amount of units but contains a blend that also has “Plutonium Extract” in it – an extract of peppers that measures up to 9 million Scoville units when you drink it in its pure form. Not sure if this might kill you, but I’d not risk it.
Crazy Uncle Jester’s Spontaneous Combustion
It’s called “spontaneous combustion”, has 1.1 million Scoville units and is based on Habanero peppers. That should be plenty of information for you to decide that this probably isn’t the most healthy thing for you to eat/drink.
Torchbearer Sauces’ The Rapture
With the word “rapture”, we usually think about God saving all the worthy humans. We don’t think of a 1.2 million Scoville unit sauce based on Habanero peppers mixed with Trinidad scorpion – whatever that is.
