If you’re like most of us here at MH, you’ll struggle to handle chilli flavoured chips, let alone chilli. But some enjoy the challenge of testing their threshold.
Unfortunately Youtuber CopperCab found out that the safety of his mouth was the least of his concerns.
Testing his limit, CopperCab tries the Carolina Reaper Chilli – named the world’s hottest chilli in 2013. On the Scoville scale, the chilli ranks at about 1.6 million. (In comparison, paprika measures around 100 on the Scoville scale.)
Watch below as CopperCab struggles to handle the heat before ultimately shitting himself in his latest viral vid:
Looks horrendous right. But don't avoid chillies altogether.
This fruit (yes, fruit) is bursting with beta-carotene and lycopene - both key for eyesight. They're also loaded with capsaicin - the ingredient responsible for their heat.
But there's gain to that pain - capsaicin aids endorphin release. That's right: chillies make you happy. Tell that to this guy...
