I did a post about a year ago regarding the then hottest pepper in the world, the Bhut Jolokia, which incinerated anyone’s mouth who came in contact with the deadly pepper. Well folks, thanks to the perverted ingenuity of pepper fanatics, we have a new world’s hottest pepper and it goes by the name of Trinidad Scorpion Butch T, which should undoubtedly be nicknamed instant death, as it rates in at 1.4 million units on the Scoville scale. To put that in perspective, a jalapeno rates in at 2500 units, a habanero at 300,000 and a bhut jolokia at 1 million units. I found a few video of some really really brave(or stupid) individuals trying out said pepper. May god have mercy on their souls.
