If you’re in the mood for something spicy, make your way to Aldwych Cafe in Glasgow to try out their one of a kind spice cream. Before you can dig into this delicious treat (if extreme spice is your thing), you’ll have to make sure you satisfy a few criteria first. Over 18? That’s a start. Next, you’ve got to sign a waiver that passes all responsibility onto you in the event of personal injury, illness, or possible loss of life. Let that last one sink in.
With all that in mind, it’s easy to predict what you’ve got in store should you decide to purchase a scoop of Devil’s Breath (or Respiro del Diavolo in Italian). On the Scoville scale, the gelato reaches a whopping 1,569,300 units, which means it’s roughly 500 time hotter than Tabasco, 31 time hotter than cayenne pepper, and one third less than pepper spray!
According to the Scoville scale, the signature ice cream of this Scottish cafe is classified as “dangerous”. The man behind the ice cream himself compares it to ‘a thermal nuclear explosion in your mouth’. For the opportunity to try a scoop of the stuff, it’s going to set you back a mere £2. However we’d wager that eating this stuff will cost you more than just money.
