My wife and I just tried a 6 million rated hot sauce in San Fran. You didn't really feel any thing at first and then the burn started. My wife was in tears although an ice cream is helping. Looking at her though I think she may be broken.

10 minutes later I can still feel the burn but not as bad as I expected.

I had 6.4mil Scoville Chocolate (called Instant Regret) at work yesterday - was offering it around to people. Had 3 pieces myself and the burn was indeed intense (made worse since I can't drink Milk). The reactions from people in the office were priceless.

 

MightyApe had it for sale but I seriously think that people at my work caused them to sell out. This is by-far the hottest thing I have eaten.

TIFU when...

 

About the hottest thing I have eaten was Monsoon Poon's firecracker chicken. That felt like my mouth cells were dying, one at a time. I'm still new to the hot foods game, but starting to get a taste for it though!

I have never really seen the point of eating food that is painful or uncomfortable. Food is is comfort, pleasure and existence.

I have one called  "Grinders Death Nectar" that I had to sign a waiver in order to taste when in NOLA last year.

 

About a 20th of a teaspoon makes a large pot of chilli plenty hot enough, so my bottle ought to last about 100 years...!

 

It is an odd sauce because it only scores about 400,000 on the Scoville scale but it seems to perform well above that...!

As I said to a colleague who said much the same thing at a recent team lunch as I sweated my way through a super hot dish (Thai extra hot + several additional tablespoons of chilli)..

 

Endorphins and dopamine..

I can't really see the point of crazy hot sauces, especially if it is just to make things hotter. After a while, the taste of the original food is gone, and all you're left with are bragging rights and pain.
Gimme Kaitaia Fire over Tabasco or any Kick-Ass type mega hot sauce any day of the week. It has a nice taste of its own, which actually complements the food, rather than annihilating it.

My wife loves chilli, born and raised on hot food and to this day is yet to be bested by any concoction of chilli sauce. A few years ago I bought some Carolina Reapers and made a hot sauce for her thinking I’d found her match, she hoovered it down.

Just recently I got her a 6mil Scoville hot sauce called The End, she put a dab on her food and her reaction was “that’s pretty hot!” Then continued to lather it over her food.. it was hot she said but she didn’t show any signs of being defeated. I give up
