About Ghost Chocolate

100–120 days. Used in extreme cooking: barbecue sauces, hot sauces, and marinades. Gloves and eye protection recommended. At first bite, the pepper’s smoky sweetness comes through, but then the infamous slow burn begins and lasts up to 30 minutes before dissipating. Up to one million SHU.
