Flavor: Fiery Habanero
When Seen: August 2019
In a Bite: Mildly tangy at first, followed by feelings of regret for being cheated out of spiciness, followed by the heat finally kicking in.
In a Haiku: Tongue feels nothing first. Then overcome with burning. Can’t stop eating these.
Origin Story: If our good friends at Wikipedia are to be trusted, 20 years the habanero was considered the hottest chili pepper in the world. Today, it has lost much of its fear factor and is ready for prime time with its own potato chip flavor.
