Would you eat it? Super spicy “Scorpion Sting” ice cream

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on September 20th, 2016

When it comes to spicy food, you either love it or you don’t. (A quick poll here at the Dairy revealed a 50/50 split.) And while spicy fare is usually reserved for chicken wings, chili and various Mexican cuisine, it can be applied to…ice cream?

That’s right, an ice cream shop in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware called The Ice Cream Store has developed an ice cream flavor so hot, it’s landed the shop in a feature in Ripley’s Believe it or Not! 

The flavor, called “Scorpion Sting,” is made with three different hot sauces, including one called Da’ Bomb Ghost Pepper Sauce, and a specially-blended Ghost pepper mash. (Ghost peppers, of course, are among the hottest peppers in the world.)

How hot is it? It’s so hot, that customers have to sign a waiver before eating it. Oh, and it comes with a frozen scorpion on top.

So…would you try it? And if you really don’t want to, you don’t have to eat the scorpion.
