Last week, we taste-tested an advance batch of the Chilli Factory's most hellish concoction yet: the dubiously named 'Reaper Paste'. The main ingredient is Carolina Reaper chillies -- AKA the hottest pepper in the known universe. This is the story of eight men who sampled it and the hospitalisation that nearly ensued.


Last week, I took part in my own personal Chilli Challenge which involved eating whole red peppers and testing different cooling remedies; from milk to hot water. Was milk the winner? How bad were the stomach cramps? Has my rectum recovered? All these questions and more are answered below.
