Fun Carolina Reaper facts: 

  • This chile pepper gets it's heat from being a cross between a Pakastani Naga and a Red Habanero.
  • Carolina Reaper consumers sometimes experience something like a runner’s high! Yep, that's why you like spicy food – it releases endorphins!
  • Despite it's heat, the Carolina Reaper actually has a good flavor, it's fruity, sweet, and has a hint of old dust and smokey undertones... though it's hard to tell because your whole head will be burning!
