Food Review: Hottest Pepper in the World- The Carolina Reaper

Reporter Mark Lu reviews the Carolina Reaper.

At 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units, the Carolina Reaper makes for no ordinary food review.



The Carolina Reaper holds the world record for the spiciest pepper at 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units. Viewers are advised to use extreme caution should they decide to take on the Reaper challenge, especially if they have a history of asthma/stomach issues.

Reporter Mark Lu was heavily monitored throughout his consumption and the aftermath of the pepper and was provided with milk and ice cream to cool himself after the minute-long challenge.
