Paqui tortilla chips just threw down the gauntlet in the chip wars by creating the hottest chip in the world. If Flaming Hot Cheetos are too much for you, turn back now, you don’t want to be anywhere near Paqui’s new Carolina Reaper Madness tortilla chips. They’re made with Carolina Reaper peppers which measure over 1.5 million SHU (Scoville Heat Units). For comparison, a jalapeno comes in at just 8,000 SHU.


“We’re always looking to push the limits to find fun ways for our fans and consumers to engage with us,” Jeff Day, Brand Manager of Paqui Chips, told Mashable. “When we decided that we wanted to make the world’s hottest chip, we first said, well, we need to find the world’s hottest pepper.” The company hasn’t revealed just how much of the pepper is in each chip, but just a little Reaper goes a very long way.

Carolina Reaper Madness tortilla chips are so hot they’re only available one chip at a time. “After you eat that one chip, trust me, you’re not looking to dig back into the bag and have a second one,” Chef Smokin’ Ed Currie, the Reaper’s inventor, says. “So, one chip is what we created to have the experience.” If you’re brave enough to handle the heat, Paqui is running a competition on its website where those who can handle the “one chip challenge” win a free bag of Pauqui chips.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
