The world's spiciest ice cream is born in Scotland - VIDEO

Spicy ice cream preview born in Scotland the world's spiciest ice cream - video

Who would have thought that the king of chili, the Carolina Reaper, ended up as an ingredient in a really very spicy ice cream. These days it has been decreed the world's spiciest ice cream; it is called the devil's breath and can be found in the Aldwych Cafe and Ice Cream Parlor in Glasgow, Scotland.

Its all-Italian name was given to celebrate the origin of the owners' family and the fictional provenance of the recipe. It is a special ice cream made with the hottest chili pepper in the world, the Carolina Reaper. It is sold at a cost of 2.50 euros but in order to taste it, one must be of legal age and sign a waiver which exempts the ice cream shop from any liability regarding possible post-tasting sickness.

Among the possible "risks" listed in the statement we find, for example, that of suffering serious injuries to the tongue and the possibility of having a heart attack. Exaggerated? Just think that Café staff need to wear gloves when they are in contact with this type of ice cream, to avoid side effects on the skin.

Devil's Breath is the world's first ice cream made from chilies that reaches the 1,569,300 SHU of the Scoville scale, a measure of the "spiciness" of chilies (want to learn more about the Scoville scale? Read our article). In summary, there is currently no spicier ice cream in the world than this one.
