Amusing footage of YouTuber James Ware eating “the world’s hottest chili”, the Carolina Reaper.
The video, filmed in 2016 in London, shows James eating the whole thing despite being warned against it.
His reaction, while extremely funny, proves that the Carolina Reaper is truly deadly. Even for those who can take their spice.
The Reaper is being grown and sold for the first time in the UK. It’s not for the faint-hearted as it has its own Guinness World Record for being the world’s hottest chili.
According to reports, it is 1.5 million Scoville units which, rather worryingly, is 400 times hotter than a jalapeno pepper.
