The Hottest Pepper In The World Is From South Carolina And It’s Seriously Insane

South Carolina is number one at still another thing on a long list of accolades. But this one may be the hottest trophy yet! This insanely hot pepper currently holds the Guiness World Record for hottest in the universe.

Admittedly, I love hot food and am curious about the Carolina Reaper. I’m not sure I’m brave enough to eat a whole one, but I’m sure I’ll try cooking with one very soon.

What about you? Will you give it a try? We’d love to know in our comments!
