When you're hot, you're HOT!!!

The Naga Jolokia Pepper

People who know me well are aware of my predilection for spicy food.

Actually, my tolerance for such things is nearly legendary in some circles...if I do say so myself.
(And I just did, huh?)

I was just reading the other day about this Naga Jolokia Pepper, which I was rather amazed to learn is many times hotter than the Habañero Pepper on the Scoville Scale.

In fact, they are the hottest peppers that exist.
(On this planet, anyway)

Now I've just got to acquire some of 'em.

Update!

Look what I found:


They're Scotch Bonnets, not the hottest, but still pretty hot...

Wasn't there a song about that...

"HOT, HOT, HOT!!"

Be careful, if you burn your taste buds you might not be able to taste anything for... I don't know, months or years, or something!

(:D) Best regards...

Last time I ate something hot then took out my contacts, well you get the idea....

You'd want to be pretty careful where you scratched ,too,I'd think,or you could be doing a little Mexican HOT dance!

There ya go Barb--now you're onto something. An April Fool's Joke, Jalapeno Toilet Paper

We have some doink heads in our apartment who ordered seeds for those peppers last year. Oh, they were going to plant them and make their own salsa. Far as I know, the seeds are still in the packet--unless they ate their way through

I think their mouths were bigger than their furnaces

Once Jack sinks his teeth into one o' these Naga Jolokia Peppers, I predict that there will be a huge fireball lighting up the skies around Philly. And, if it doesn't happen when the pepper is going in...you can make book on that fireball when it's coming out... ;-)

Seriously, Mr. Spicy Boy, having personally seen you load up on some superheated stuff, I say "have at it," and let us all know how it goes.

Natalie:
You don't think I can get the peppers themselves, then?

If not, I can get hot sauce made with them:

Hawkeye®:
There was a song about that, yes. ;-)

As for my taste buds, they'll manage.

Allen:
I do get the idea...OUCH!!!

Barb:
You might be interested to know that Koreans actually consume more hot pepper than Mexicans; although the Mexicans have that reputation, the Koreans consume more than anyone.
(Even me!)

Ms RightWing:
Jalapeño toilet paper, eh? YIKES!!! I must say, my front end is far more tolerant than my back end regarding these matters.

However, if the "doink heads" in your apartment building still have those seeds, I'd buy them.

Bunny:
If there's going to be a "fireball", when it's coming out would be the more likely time... :-(

Knowing a little something about spicy foods and peppers, I am amazed at the SHU rating of these peppers! Habaneros are "other-worldly" hot, in comparison to other peppers but these are three or more magnitudes hotter!

Gotta try some...

Bunny....my Dad always cautioned me that hot peppers would "burn you twice".

Jack...that "fireball" is another reason why I avoid the Habanero, and would definitely avoid the Naga Jolokia...heh, heh. ;-)

Maggie, your Dad was a very wise man. :-)

That video is amusing but ended too soon. How did he make out?
I'm guessing the "real" price will indeed be paid on the way out...ouch!

Beerme:
I'm amazed that I hadn't heard of them 'til recently.

I'll probably order some o' that hot sauce.

Maggie:
Hot peppers will burn you twice, all right. :-(

Bunny:
When I can find 'em in my local supermarket, I buy the habañero stuffed olives; then I use the jalapeño stuffed olives as a "chaser", to cool down my mouth; I can always find those.

boberin:
My guess is that the guy in the video survived the experience.

PS: You forgot to say "eleventeen"... ;-)

Habanero stuffed olives...jalapeno stuffed olives...and then, the "afterburner" kicks in on Jack's Turbo-gut. Who needs any of Ms RightWing's "Jalapeno Toilet Paper" with that diet? ;-)

Jack, your title is interesting. I thought you talked about the ladies, so I clicked the link...now i see how hot you are with so many comments. I guess you are hotter than the pepper you mentioned above.
Next time, i will order the hotest dishes in the restaurant for you.

Bunny:
Yes, Jalapeño toilet paper would be superfluous under the circumstances.

DreamingLady:
I try to make all of my titles interesting, with mixed results.

Anyway, nothing is hotter than the pepper I mentioned above... ;-)
