Okay… how the hell do I introduce a video like this?? Hmmmm…I KNOW! Let me start by saying that this is by far the stupidest thing I have EVER done on video.. I mean this, this hurts LOADS!
The story behind this video goes a little something like this: Gerald Fowler of “The Chilli Pepper Company” grew some Naga cross Trinidad hybrid chilli’s, he then sent a batch off to Warwick University to get tested, they turned out to be the HOTTEST CHILLI IN THE WORLD at 1,340,969 SHU… I tasted a sauce made from these chilli’s at the West Dean Chilli Fiesta but had no idea at the time that these were the worlds hottest (neither did anyone else for that matter!) fast forward a couple of months and the news is revealed about the Warwick University test and what they discovered!
Now, I spoke to Ged and he sent me a few of the Naga Viper pods, asking me to do a taste test on video, so I obliged…rather stupidly. He also stipulated that the taste test be one green Naga viper, followed by a red Naga viper… again like a fookin numpty I obliged….
I wish I had never done this, I suffered all day Tuesday due to these chilli’s and it wasn't much fun! That said the flavour of the pod itself is amazing, it has both a fruity and savoury taste to me, similar to the Naga but not quite the same, the heat is something else entirely, hell if you don’t believe me watch the video!!
I’ve just noticed from watching this review back, that I say “insane” a hell of a lot, note to self, must STOP saying that so much!! anyway…
So there you have it, the day after this video was taken my tongue packed its bags and my arse handed in its notice, the heat affected me so badly that I haven't had anything hot to eat since, for fear of repercussion!! A huge well done to Ged for growing the current worlds hottest chilli and I hope we see some more sauces utilising this unique fruit soon!
The Terminator sauce is available over at www.chileseeds.co.uk for a paltry £6 I mentioned this sauce a few times as its the only sauce at the moment that contains the Naga Viper chilli, so grab a bottle while you can and may the sauce be with you chilefanz!
P.S. Please can people comment on
