We Tried The Choco Challenge and My Everything Hurts

February 14, 2019

We recently received a box in the mail from the folks over at the Fuego Spice Co. that contained a few free samples of their signature chocolate bar, Cocoa Loco. This same company is also challenging people to participate in the #ChocoChallenge to raise awareness for prostate cancer. So when somebody sends you free chocolate, you don't say no!

Now the chocolate is also infused with the Black Reaper Pepper, which is currently the spiciest pepper on Earth with a record of over 2,200,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Units)!

So myself, assistant producer Stiz Grimey, and our Hipster Leonidas/Digital Guy Tony decided to take the challenge live on the air and on Facebook live.

Now I like spicy food. But never in my wildest dreams would I think that a chocolate bar could turn my tastebuds to ash. Stiz Grimey wasn't too far behind me either. But for some reason Tony said the worst part of the experience was that in order to cool it down, he had to drink milk! Whatever hardo.

Anyways, watch, enjoy and laugh at our pain in the video above!
