Bhut Jolokia: HOT Ghost Pepper Cube Giveaway

This giveaway is now CLOSED.  Congratulations to the lucky winner - SantaFe #97!

If you're a fan of spicy, then I've got one HOT product for you!  The Ghost Cube from Bhut Jolokia will REALLY stimulate your taste buds.

If you're not familiar with the ghost pepper, read on:

The Bhut Jolokia — also known as Ghost Pepper has been around for many centuries and it is believed to have originated in Assam, India. The word Bhut, given from the Bhutias people, means "ghost" and was probably given the name because of the way the heat sneaks up on the one who eats it.

It was only introduced to the western world in 2000. In that same year, a report was published stating it's level of heat as almost double that of a Red Savina Habanero which was believed to be the world's hottest pepper.

In 2007 The Ghost Pepper was certified as the hottest Chili Pepper on the planet in The Guinness Book of World Records.

My husband is a fan of all things spicy, but he couldn't even handle their Spicy Sour Watermelon Candy.  Halfway through eating it, he had to take it out.  The heat really snuck up on him.  However, my brother on the other hand finished it with ease and wondered where the spicy was.  Go figure!

Each Ghost Cube contains the following:

1 ghost packet — includes 1 dried ghost chili
1 oz bottle of ghost powder
10g tin crushed ghost pepper flakes
1oz packet of spicy watermelon candy
1 recipe/fact cards
cube size: 4" x 3" x 3"

I'll be completely honest with you, we haven't even tried the dried ghost chili or ghost power.  Are we scared to?  Here's a big fat YES.  My brother is a chef and he's dying to cook with them though.  My husband likes to use pepper flakes on his pizza.  He tried the crushed ghost pepper flakes and enjoyed hem.  Were they hot?  Heck yeah they were.

If your husband or father likes spicy things, the Ghost Cube would be such a unique Father's Day gift idea!

One lucky reader will win a Ghost Cube!
