Iceland launch spicy chicken thighs claimed to be world's hottest

Have your say

Calling all spicy food eaters in Leeds.

Restaurant review: Bengal Brasserie, Haddon Road, Burley, Leeds



Do you like your food so spicy your mouth effectively has the same temperature as the deepest pits of hell?

If you do, then a frozen supermarket might have just the thing for you.

If you want to turn up your body temperature while the climate outside is hot then Iceland's new spicy chicken thigh - modestly called the Red Hot Chilli Chicken Thighs - and they are packing some serious heat.

Bar review: Slocken, Call Lane, Leeds

Claimed to be twice as hot as Nando's extra hot sauce and registering at 575,500 on the scoville scale, the fiery thighs are made with a marinade of bird's eye chilli, habanero chilli and capsicum chilli essence and claim to be the hottest in the world.

One review on the Iceland website says: "...made (my) eyes water and nose run so great! Exactly what it said on the box, red hot chilli!!"

They are priced at £3 for 720 grams and can be purchased online or in store.

Would you be brave enough to try them?
