The Instant Regret peanut butter is aptly named: it’s infused with so much capsaicin (the active ingredient that makes something spicy) that we’re having trouble believing there isn’t a typo somewhere, and if there isn’t, you’re guaranteed to regret its ingestion! See, Instant Regret peanut butter is rated at 12 million SHU on the Scoville Scale. That… is troubling. Police grade pepper spray is somewhere in the vicinity of 2 million SHU. The last time we reported on some spicy thing, it was Timmy’s Great Balls of Fire which rated at a tame 1 million SHU. To further the perspective, a Habanero pepper is around 200,000 SHU, and Taco Bell’s Fire Sauce 500. So, 12 million SHU is quite a few orders of magnitude higher. The ingredients are as follows:
Peanuts, Sunflower Oil, Habanero, King Naga, 12m [SHU] Chilli Extract, Sugar Syrup, Salt
Yeah, so there you have it. Seriously spicy peanut butter. We still think there may be some typo, as some of our readers will undoubtedly express skepticism. We would suggest one of you try it out and report back to us, but we worry about encouraging any activity that might result is injury.
It’s £7 or about $12 a jar.
