Paqui Carolina Reaper Madness Chip

Tortilla chip brand Paqui recently made the world's hottest chip, which is only sold in packages of just one.

Dubbed the Carolina Reaper Madness Chip, the chip is made with what is called the hottest pepper in the world, the Carolina Reaper, as well as the runner-up ghost pepper. It comes packaged in a red coffin-shaped box, which features an image of a reaper, alongside phrases like "Deadly Heat", "Inside: One Deadly Chip", and "The One Chip Challenge". Inside, there's literally one chip.

According to Guinness World Records, the Carolina Reaper pepper delivers an average of 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units.

The Carolina Reaper Madness Chip is available at Paqui's website for $4.99 USD per coffin, while it is slated to hit stores in October.
