Even Further Beyond!

Alright everybody, it’s my last post of twenty twenty-one and we’re now in that weird nothing period between the big winter holidays. So I feel like I’m fighting the inevitable here but I still want to at least try to make this post memorable and end the year on a high point.

To that end, I’ve gathered together three of the potentially hottest natural sauces on the planet:

Daddy Cool‘s Final Destination, made with everything from habanero up to hurt berry – A new FG Jigsaw hybrid, said to far exceed the heat of the reaper.

Chilli Bob‘s Dragons Breath Chilli Sauce, crafted from a similarly named pepper that we’ve already established surpassed that current record holder. Yet haven’t seen in anything pure enough to shift the upper limits of my scale just yet.

And Badger’s Chilli Kitchen’s Armageddon The End, with a whopping eighty percent armageddon chilli, making it the most chilli-centric sauce of the lot.

Any one of these three could be the new top of nature but which, if any, actually will?

It’s time to find out!

So twenty-nineteen is on the way out, dear readers, and today is all that remains of it. But I do have one last sauce to show you, before the year is done.

It’s a special one, too. The very first to use Tesco’s latest attempt at the world record: The Armageddon pepper.

Upon release, this superhot was actually claimed to be milder than the reaper but, as most professional growers will tell you, later crops average hotter chillies. Tesco and their grower, Love My Chillies, were expecting it to make up the difference towards the end of twenty-nineteen’s growing season, though I’ve seen no word on whether or not it really did.

So I don’t know if this is now the hottest pepper in the world but I do know what today’s bottle says. It says that this is Brighton Hot Stuff‘s hottest sauce, made with habaneros, reapers, moruga scorpions, ghosts and the armageddon from which it gets its name. A huge range of red chillies, from hot to world record level and possibly even beyond.

Let’s take a closer look at it.
