Flavor: Ghost Pepper
When Seen: July 2021
In a Bite: All chili. Comes on slowly, but intensifies and sticks around for a bit.
In a Haiku: A ghost of itself. Live to eat another day. Spicy without pain.
Origin Story: Thais like it hot, so what better way to tickle–or incinerate–the tongue than the former record holder of the world’s hottest chili pepper? Sadly, if lingual masochism is what you’re into, these chips will disappoint. You’ll feel more like Homer after he drank the melted candle, rather than before–without the hallucinations.
