Introducing the Peanut Butter that is 10,000 Times Hotter than Tabasco

By: Lawrence Bonk

Peanut Butter and jelly are an age-old friendship that rivals Kirk and Spock, Laverne and Shirley and, even, ALF and Willie. What happens when you throw something new into the mix? Kirk and Spock had McCoy, after all. In the case of peanut butter and jelly, the newly instated third member of their posse happens to be, well, the lethally hot ghost pepper. Every crew needs a wild card.

That’s right. You can now get your hands on a jar of Instant Regret Peanut Butter, which is made with the infamous Naga Bhut Jolokia, otherwise known as the ghost pepper. This pepper clocks in at an alarming 855,000 heat units on the Scoville scale. This peanut butter adds a massive dollop of the pepper, along with some chili extract and habanero just so your mouth really hates you after chomping down. This PB may not be the best option for PB & J sandwiches, but it sure would make a funny stocking stuffer. You can get a jar for just twelve bucks.

Not ready to commit to so much heat?
