Lil’ Nitro is the world’s hottest gummy bear

Lil’ Nitro is the world’s hottest gummy bear

If you fancy candy with a Scoville rating of 9,000,000, Lil’ Nitro is the gummy for you.

We’ve seen people eat hot chicken wings, ghost peppers, and chips with Carolina Reaper peppers. Now there’s a new challenger entering the fire ring. Weighing in at 1.5g… Lil’ Nitro!

The gummy bear is made and sold in the USA and comes in at 9,000,000 on the Scoville scale used to measure the heat of chilli peppers. Put into context, that’s 900 times hotter than a jalapeño and over 5 times hotter than a Carolina Reaper. It comes with a “cool shield foil wrap” and an ice pack to ease the pain (because you’ll need it).

If you can handle the heat, you’ll be disappointed to hear there’s only one Lil’ Nitro Gummy Bear available per box but I can’t imagine there’s much demand for a packet of gummies with 9 million Scoville rating.

Lil’ Nitro is a next-level spice challenge that shows that even the sweetest things can be corrupted.

Oh, and it’s not suitable for vegans because it contains gelatine. It’s also not suitable for children despite what this questionable Amazon review says:

Joke or not, DON'T GIVE YOUR CHILD A LIL' NITRO GUMMY BEAR!
