Burger so hot you have to be 18, sign a waiver, and wear gloves to eat it

By Abraham Piper


Check out this burger…

It looks fantastic. But it isn’t. It’s downright terrifying, as a matter of fact.

This is the Atomic Fallout Burger from England’s Atomic Burgers and it comes in at a million on the Scoville scale, a measurement of the heat of peppers. This means that it is closer in heat to law-enforcement-grade pepper spray than your ordinary jalapeno.

The heat comes from a 3-pepper sauce, 2 of which are some of the hottest peppers there are — The ghost pepper and the Scotch bonnet.

Besides being unbearably hot, it’s also huge, containing over a pound of meat and accompanied by a large side of chili-sprinkled fries, which are hot in their own right but come as a relief in comparison to the burger.

(Oh, also, instead of a bun, it’s two deep-fried mini pizzas…which just takes this bad boy beyond the pale, in my opinion. One gimmick per burger, please.)

In order to attempt this beast, the brave customer must be 18 — old enough to sign a disclaimer saying they won’t sue — and wear gloves to protect their hands. 500 people so far have agreed to the terms and given it a go. 1 in 10 has succeeded.
