When these Ghost Pepper Gumballs came into the office, we were terrified.
We immediately placed them behind yellow tape, dreading the day we'd have to test them out.
But then something amazing happened.
We took these suckers with us to the bar and started asking people to try it. "The spiciest candy imaginable? Ha, no way!" they said.
No one wanted to try it. But then, a wave of curiosity hit, and one brave soul decided she just had to try it. After watching her go through the thrill of tasting the candy's crazy flavor profile - curiosity spread like wildfire, and soon enough, everyone watching wanted to give it a go.
Check it out on this week's Behind the Scam:
Each person's reaction was different, but all were fun to watch.
Some immediately started fanning themselves because of the heat.
Spicy food lovers thought it was amazing and started challenging each other to see how many they could eat in a row.
And others ran as fast as they could to the nearest trash can.
While their reactions were mixed, not a single person regretted the experience and everyone was talking about it for the rest of the night.
You and your friends are going to have a blast with these, experiencing the novel combination of sweet cinnamon and spicy Ghost Pepper all in one bite.
Plus, if you've already hosted a Miracle Fruit taste-tripping experience, this is a great follow-up adventure to do with your friends.
And don't forget -- I want to hear all about your crazy stories trying these out. I know you'll love it.
