I know there are a lot of spiceophiles on the board, so I thought I'd bring this gem up. I blind bought it a week ago because I always like to try things that claim to be "the hottest in the universe". Goodness, it is hot! There's an index that measures how hot food is named the Scoville Scale, and this stuff clocks in at 180,000 Scovilles. Original Tobasco Sauce is between 2,500 and 5,000. Basically, each drop is as hot as eating a full habanero pepper. It really caught me off guard the first time, but man that stuff is addicting! Oh, I should also mention that I picked up the bottle the other day, just to read the label and about 20 minutes later I scratched my eye. It felt like there was a branding iron on my eyeball for about 20 minutes. I don't think I've ever held my eye shut that tight for that long before. Yowza!
