There’s a new challenge if the death nut or hot chip challenge was too easy for you as a pepper lover. The Cocoa Loco is infused with a Black Reaper pepper (hotter than the Carolina Reaper) making it the spiciest chocolate bar in the world. The Choco Challenge will have you take in over 2,200,000 SHU on the Scoville scale. Be warned. This is not the challenge for you if you can’t stand a common chilli pepper.
The Cocoa Loco Challenge is made by Fuego Spice Co., the hot sauce gift shop. As a nice gesture they’re donating five bucks from every Cocoa Loco purchase to prostate cancer research.
Fuego is daring you to take this choco challenge, film it and put it on social media under the #ChocoChallenge2019 hashtag. You’ll get a chance of winning a year’s supply of hot sauce, if you still feel like winning that of course.
Are you ready to take the spicy chocolate challenge? Maybe it’s good to check some of the existing contenders.
Update (2020): The original choco challenge is not available anymore. Fuego Box has now introduced White Lightning, which kickstarts a new Choco Challenge 2.0. Read our new post here or order White Lightning via the link below:
2.2 Million SHU isn’t the spiciest chocolate bar in the world, that would be Vat19’s “World’s hottest chocolate bar” at 9 million SHU.
Spiciest chocolate (cacao) bar, vat19 is milk chocolate which is mostly milk. So the statement still stands as valid.
