Can you handle the heat? Iceland’s new Red Hot Chicken Wings measure in at over 750,000 on the Scoville Scale – so you’ll have to be very brave to try them
If you like spicy foods, Iceland has a new challenge for you…
The frozen supermarket is selling what it claims are the UK’s hottest chicken wings and they’re 230 times hotter than a jalapeño.
The Iceland Red Hot Chicken Wings measure in at over 750,000 on the Scoville Scale, meaning they’re definitely not for the faint hearted.
The new addition follows on from the store’s Red Hot Chilli Chicken Thighs , which were a big hit with shoppers last year.
The 630g bag costs £3, and they can be cooked from frozen or popped on the barbeque.
A spokesperson said: “Iceland’s team of development chefs were convinced they had brought the heat last year.
“However, following reports on social media from brave Brits who claimed they could handle the fiery spice, they were inspired to dial things up a level by adding more of the world’s hottest chilli to really put those daring shoppers to the test.”
The wings also come with a warning to anyone brave enough to try them.
It says: “These chicken wings are not to be taken lightly, they are seriously hot and should only be consumed under adult supervision.
“We would recommend having a pot of cooling yoghurt, a pint of milk, latex gloves, protective goggles and maybe even a fire extinguisher close to hand.”
So, can you handle the heat?
