The world’s hottest Easter egg which packs the equivalent punch of 400 bottles of TABASCO sauce has gone on sale at a British restaurant.
The ‘Not for Bunnies’ chocolate egg contains three of the hottest known chillies and registers a volcanic 1million on the Scoville scale.
Chefs at India Dining in Warlingham, Surrey, used the fiery Ghost Chilli, the Scotch Bonnet and the habanero to create the £49.95 ‘Easter treat’.
It is so hot that diners must wear protective gloves, and sign a legal disclaimer to prove they are over the age of 18 and of “sound mind and judgement”.
The original Tabasco sauce measures just 2,500 Scoville units, while a typical vindaloo curry packs between 100,000 and 200,000.
India Dining, voted the best restaurant in Surrey by the Cobra Curry Club Guide and a member of the Sustainable Restaurant Association, will be selling the eggs to customers over the Easter weekend.
Owner Asad Khan admitted: “It’s a rather unconventional Easter treat, but the eggs are, in fact, delicious.”
