How hot is 9 million scoville?

Answered by Tom Adger

Let me tell you, my friend, 9 million Scoville Units is no joke. This stuff is so hot, it will make your taste buds scream for mercy. I had the misfortune of trying it once, and let me tell you, it was an experience I will never forget.

I remember the day like it was yesterday. I was at a chili pepper festival, surrounded by people who were daring enough to try the hottest peppers on the planet. As I walked past a booth, my eyes were immediately drawn to the retro nuclear packaging of this particular chili pepper extract. Curiosity got the better of me, and before I knew it, I found myself purchasing a bottle.

The packaging boasted that this extract was the purest and hottest on the face of the earth. Intrigued, I couldn’t wait to give it a try. Little did I know what I was getting myself into.

I decided to start small, just a single drop on the tip of my finger. As I brought my finger to my mouth, I could already feel the heat radiating off of it. I hesitated for a moment, but then I bravely placed my finger on my tongue.

Instantly, a wave of heat washed over me. It felt like my mouth was on fire. My eyes watered, my nose started to run, and I could feel my face turning red. It was as if someone had set off a bomb in my mouth. The intensity of the heat was unlike anything I had ever experienced before.

I quickly reached for a glass of water, hoping to extinguish the flames raging in my mouth. But to my dismay, the water did nothing to quell the heat. It was as if the chili pepper extract had taken over my taste buds, refusing to let go.

I desperately searched for relief, trying anything I could think of to cool down my burning mouth. Milk, bread, even sugar – nothing seemed to help. It felt like an eternity before the heat finally subsided, leaving me exhausted and with a newfound respect for the power of chili peppers.

So, my friend, let me tell you, 9 million Scoville Units is no joke. It is an intense, fiery heat that will leave you breathless and longing for relief. If you’re brave enough to give it a try, be prepared for an experience that will send you to the moon – almost literally. But remember, a little goes a long way with this stuff. Proceed with caution, and may the chili gods be with you.
