What the hell was I thinking? Tonight I decided it would be a smart idea to go and take the Piñatas Carolina Reaper Burrito Challenge. What is this Challenge? Well it is an idiotic task of eating a Burrito filled with Carolina Hot Sauce along with other hot sauces and “other hot stuff” and yes that is how they describe it.
So what does this challenge involve?
Well it’s fairly straight forward, Pick up the Burrito or get it delivered if you live close enough. Open it up and eat it. Oh but wait there is some rules :-
- No Water (That’s just cheating)
- No Sharing (Fair enough)
- Must be eaten in one sitting/session.
- Film it and Share it on Social Media Tagging Pinatas
Now Firstly, A++ for Presentation here guys, it is spectacular, you open the box and you are presented with a foil wrapped Burrito, with the same Reaper Sticker, some Nacho Chips and a Pot of Sour Cream.
You unwrap the Burrito and tuck yourself into what is going to become clear is torment.
Now my advice if your going to do this is probably don’t live stream it, number of reasons you feel like you need to draw it out a little and you start talking to people which also draws it out. These are BAD Ideas the longer you give this spice to develop in you mouth the more pain you are going to be in, I can tell you that first hand.
Now the very first bite was snappy, More heat than I expected but the next 2-3 didn’t seem as bad as my pallet started to become accustomed to it, but then the talking started and the delaying started and wow that heat built quickly.
By about 1/3 of the way in, I was crying, I was sweating and honest to god my face was hurting. It was a seriously hot Burrito.
Now we must not forget my friends but also enemy the Nacho Chips, I thought these were going to be my friends along with their accompanying dip of Sour Cream, The chips though we’re not plain chips but Doritos Flamin Hot and the Sour Cream was no match for everything else going on.
All in all I sat for 20min and ate a Burrito and people came and watched and laughed at my pain, I cried my nose was running and my face melted yet I still very much enjoyed the experience. Would I do it again – No Thank You. Would I order for the Guys at Pinatas though? Hell yes the food was actually REALLY tasty if it wasn’t so spicy and TheMsRogue really Enjoyed her Create your own Burrito and Churros so the whole experience was a win, if only they were a little closer to us I could see us ordering weekly.
Want to see the torment? Feel free but I warn you there is Plenty of Profanity and it is intended for Mature Audiences only.
And if after all that you for some strange reason still want to go try this challenge head over to Piñatas they are based in Swansea, South Wales.
