Iceland Is Selling Carolina Reaper Pigs In Blankets This Christmas

Iceland Is Selling Carolina Reaper Pigs In Blankets This Christmas

Iceland has revealed a new dish that could help add a nice kick to your Christmas festivities - Carolina Reaper Pigs in Blankets.

Well... by 'add a nice kick', I mean 'blow your bleeding head off and leave you racing for the fridge to drown your frazzled taste buds in milk'.

Carolina Reaper chilli peppers are regarded as one of the hottest in the world, so you'll need to be a serious spice enthusiast to get through a serving of these bad boys.

Anyway, outside of the obvious difference, these are essentially your regular pigs in blankets - a Christmas favourite composed of tiny sausages wrapped up in delicious bacon.

But of course, these ones could leave you with a seriously sore mouth, and some other things to think about the net morning.

However, if this is your thing - and it will be for many folks - then you can get a 252 gram packet of them for just £2.

Instead of just seasoning the whole thing with the Carolina Reaper chilli, the pepper been infused into the sausages, so you'll really get a taste of it.

The pepper - which has an intense heat that translates to 2.2 million Scoville Units - was developed back in 2013 and is thought by many to be the hottest chilli pepper on the market.

So just to reiterate, this is not for the faint-hearted.

The study found that capsaicin - an anti-inflammatory found in chillies - could reduce tumours, as well as help reduce blood-glucose levels combatting things like diabetes.

The leader of the study and a cardiologist at The Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, Bo Xu, said: "Regular consumption of chilli pepper was associated with an overall risk-reduction of all cause, cardiovascular disease and cancer mortality."

Penny Kris-Etherton, a nutritionist from Pennsylvania State University and the American Heart Association, added: "I think the findings are really quite remarkable, actually.

"There were associations with multiple different diseases and endpoints.

"The authors found benefits of chilli pepper consumption on all-cause mortality, cardiovascular mortality and cancer mortality."

There you have it - why not pile your Christmas dinner up with massively spicy dishes? It might even be good for you.
