Icy Hot: Scottish Ice Creamery Makes 1,500,000 Scoville Ice Cream You Have To Sign A Waiver To Buy

February 14, 2018

This is a shot of the 'Respiro Del Diavolo' Carolina Reaper pepper ice cream produced by The Aldwych Café in Cardonald, Glasgow, Scotland. They estimate the ice cream is around 1,570,000 Scoville heat units, or around 10 times that of a habanero, which, yes, I have squeezed between my buttcheeks on a dare before. "Nobody dared you." Daring yourself counts. Management says the seasonal flavor is so hot that customers who want to try it must be at least 18 years old and sign a release of liability in order to buy "the world's most dangerous ice cream." Pfft, the world's most dangerous ice cream? Please. Try a scoop of this. "Are those razor blades?" Yes. "And...castor beans?" Ding ding ding -- the February Flavor Of The Month: Ricin & Razor Blades! "Is it true anybody who finishes a scoop in a waffle cone gets a free souvenir coffee mug?" That's correct. "Can I see one of the mugs?" I never had any made.

Keep going for one more shot of an employee holding up the waiver you have to sign in case you thought they were bluffing (I still think they're bluffing, that looks like a car lease to me).

Thanks to Christina C, who prefers mint chocolate chip. Nice! I like rum raisin or pralines & cream because I'm eighty years old.

    Hmm... there's something wrong with the maths here. The Carolina Reaper is rated around 1.6 million Scovilles average, so unless that ice cream is made of pure ground up peppers (or beefed up with capsaicin extract), there's no way its rating can be anywhere near 1.5 million.

    Milk for the ice cream came from a demon cow's teet. That's where the extra numbers are coming from.

  • I prefer rum and raisin, or vanilla.
    You know, the sort of flavor that doesn't melt your face and blow your rectum out.

    Tell your friends who are lactose intolerant that this is lactose free for double the fun.

    May as well be fat free, for all the digesting you'll actually do to it.

    In college my friends and somehow convinced another friend to try the hottest wings on the planet. Well, they weren't "the hottest" they were "the least spicy of three hotter-than-pepper-spray" wings. He managed to down two of them and get half of a third. He got his name on the wall of shame (three was the minimum to get on the wall). Then he ran to the restroom and vomited. I took my finger and tasted the sauce. My entire face felt like it was burning for a good 20 minutes.

    Even better, there was a little league team who was just getting ready to leave but they heard he was gonna order the "Nuclear Hell" wings. Half of them stayed an hour to watch the spectacle. They had to call the restaurant owner to come in on his day off and make up a small batch of his secret recipe.

    What's insane about this is the friend who tried the wings doesn't even like spicy food. He got free booze out of the deal though.
