Now You Can Buy The World's Hottest Chip In A Single Piece Package

The Carolina Reaper Madness Chip is the spiciest tortilla chip in the world. It's heat is so potent, Texas-based chip producer Paqui has been selling them one at a time in their own individual packaging. Intense, right?

The Carolina reaper pepper has a 1.56 million Scoville rating making it the hottest chili pepper in the world.

These chips are part of a limited time run from Paqui and have been wildly popular! Apparently this individual chip was just what spice lovers were looking for.

"The reason that we're selling this as one chip is because quite honestly, that's all that you need. That's all that anyone needs," says Paqui.

"It's the hottest chip you'll ever have, I can guarantee you that. After you eat that one chip, trust me, you're not looking to dig back into the bag and have a second one. So, one chip is what we created to have the experience."

If you want to get in on the action, you can play along with the Paqui "Chip Challenge":

  1. eat the chip
  2. take a photo or record a video of your reaction (make sure the chip and package are in view.) and
  3. upload your video or photo, or post it and tag @PaquiTortillas on social media with #OneChipChallenge and #sweeps.

Wondering just how hot the Carolina Reaper really is? Just take a look at the Scoville Chili rating to get an idea.
