YYC Chilihead Alert!!!

Scary Bill | Dec 23, 2010 04:30 PM

For those of you chiliheads who can't get enough heat, the "Ghost" has come to Calgary. Properly known as the Naga Jolokia or Bhut Jolokia, it is the second hottest chili on the planet, second only to a new hybrid derived from the Ghost called the Viper Jolokia.

The Ghost has recorded scoville unite over 1,000,000 in tests, while the hottest Jalapeno tops out at 8,000.

Saw them at the Sobey's at Shaunessy and Millrise, eight or so in a package for 5 bucks. Have at er', chiliheads.

NOTE:: Though the package identifies the chili's as "Ghosts" and Bhut Jolokia, the pictures I've seen of the chili seem to differ. I have to go back tomorrow, so I;ll be taking another look at them,
