Iceland's New Chilli Chicken Wings So Hot YouTubers Have To Wear Gloves To Eat Them
Iceland's new chilli chicken wings are so hot that even veteran spice lovers are having to wear rubber gloves to eat them.
The channel's description reads: "From product reviews to cooking with chilli, international adventures to growing tips, chilli eating contests to extreme challenges - this is your one stop shop for all things CHILLI!"
The wings are made with the Carolina Reaper chilli - the spiciest in the world, at about 230 times hotter than a jalapeño pepper.
The two testers, Jay Webley, 43, and Dave Smith, 47, both from Bristol, can be seen preparing the chicken while wearing rubber gloves. It does actually say on the packet that you're meant to wear gloves when cooking them.
As soon as they come out of the over, Jay says they 'smell great', adding: "A little oily but that's not a bad thing with wings."
As the pair start to eat the wings, dubbed the spiciest in the UK, they comment: "They're cheap, easily available - I think people will find these hot."
Iceland's red hot chilli chicken wings are sold in stores round the country and cost £3 for a 630g bag, but they're currently sold out online. Don't worry though, they are due to return and should be back on the site soon.
Alongside the chilli in the marinade, the new wings are also flavoured with tomato, garlic and paprika. Cooked on the bone, it's claimed they're best finished off on the barbecue, to give them a crispy skin.
if you're into your spice then you're pretty much guaranteed to like them, but just be aware that Iceland recommends shoppers should only consume them under adult supervision.
And if you're a fan of spicy chicken, then you might want to try McDonald's new nuggets.
The fiery nuggets will only be around for seven weeks, so you'll have to act fast if you want to capitalise on that heat.
Prices vary between branches, but on average they cost £3.19 for 6, £3.49 for 9, £4.99 for 20 - so basically the same as the regular nuggets we know and love - although hopefully they'll prove to be so popular that they're rolled out nationwide for good.
The Spicy McNuggets are based upon recipes already trialled in the US and Asia, not to mention Australia where they're a permanent fixture on the menu - lucky Aussies.
In the UK, they're only being made available for seven weeks, meaning you'll have to be quick if you want to try them for yourself. Although hopefully they'll prove to be so popular that they're rolled out nationwide for good.
The British version of the product uses a new, specially-developed recipe. They also come with a Tabasco-based dip, just in case you want to bump up the spice even more.
