Morrisons Launches 'Hellfire' Sausages Containing Three Of The World's Hottest Chillies
If you're the kind of person who eats sausages and thinks, 'These are great and all, but if only they'd blow my f***ing head off,' then Morrisons might have just the sausage for you.
The supermarket has launched 'Hellfire' sausages, which contain three of the world's hottest chillies: the Naga Ghost, the Trinidad Scorpion and the Carolina Reaper (all of which sound pretty scary if you ask me).
Indeed, the aptly-named sausages are supposed to be scary and have been released on a limited edition basis to coincide with Halloween, with 19 November the last day you can pick up the bangers.
If you are somehow able to handle the Carolina Reaper's 1,569,300 Scoville units, the Trinidad Scorpion's 1,463,700 Scoville units and the Naga Ghost's 1,041,427 Scoville units, then you may just about be able to taste Morrisons' premium range 'The Best' sausage meat, from which the festive hot dogs are comprised.
You can pick up a six pack of Hellfire sausages for £2.50 or two packs for £4 in stores across the UK.
Campbell Breakwell, Morrisons Sausage Buyer (or MSB, as he perhaps refers to himself) recommends brave banger munchers come at the meat with a glass of milk waiting by their side.
According to Sick Chirpse, he said: "We believe these sausages will be popular with customers preparing for a month of fright and fireworks so we're excited for them to experience the heat - perhaps with a glass of milk on the side?"
Earlier this year, Aldi brought back a new and improved/even hotter version of its Grim Reaper sausage.
The sizzling sausages also contain the fearsome Carolina Reaper and were priced at £1.99 when they were last introduced as part of the supermarket's Specialbuys, so keep your eyes peeled for their return.
However, the German supermarket also sparked a backlash over its square sausages, which it released in May. Dubbed the 'Sausedge', it was presented as though it was some kind of pioneering development in the world of meat - which most of Scotland seemed to object to.

For them, the so-called sausedge was no different to the 'Lorne sausage' they've been eating for many years.
Taking to social media, one person said: "The cheek o' yis! Scotland can date our Square, or Lorne Sausage back to the 19th C. It is believed to have been named after Lorne (area name is no longer in use) but was located in the current Scottish region of Argyle & Bute."
Another simply added: "They're called Lorne sausages, ya absolute bawbags."
Who knew square-shaped sausages could be so divisive?
