Reaper Challenge - Can You Handle The Heat?

Posted by Tim Solley on

Fear The Reaper

At Rebel Popcorn, there are NO rules! We've created The World's Hottest Popcorn, and we call it "Fear The Reaper".

The Carolina Reaper

Carolina Reaper

In the world of hot peppers, the Carolina Reaper reigns king. The Carolina Reaper is more than twice as hot as the well known Ghost pepper. Heat is measured in Scoville Heat Units. The Ghost clocks in at about one millions units. 

The Carolina Reaper destroys the Ghost with over 2.3 million heat units!

So why not make popcorn loaded with Carolina Reapers? 

The Challenge

We hold a Reaper Challenge on the first Friday of each month at the Tasting Room in Fort Collins.  Check out some highlights from our inaugural challenge:

The challenge is simple. Five minutes. Every 60 seconds, you eat a round of Fear The Reaper popcorn. You start with one kernel. Then two. Then three, four, and finally five.

If you can make it to the five minute mark without giving up and going for the milk, you win! You win a free bag of popcorn. Any flavor you like! And you walk away with the glory and are part of a select group of super-achievers.

If you can't handle the heat, relief (in the form of milk) is just a cowbell ring away.

The challenge is a lot of fun. Come give it a shot! And bring friends, as it's always more fun with friends around! If you're not brave enough, just come to watch.


If you'd like to follow the latest in our Reaper happenings, and to see events with specific dates, just like us on Facebook.
