I purchased 2 bricks each of the Scorpion Cheddar and Carolina Reaper. Was most dissatisfied with the “heat” of each. You would think by the description that they would melt your mouth in heat….not the case……neither were not any hotter than the ghost pepper that White Castle occasionally offers…….very weak for such a big claim.
We must agree, it didn’t have us rolling on the floor like in the “One Chip Challenge” Youtube videos. The reason the heat is more tolerable is because oil-based spices like peppers are mellowed by dairy products. That’s why you drink milk to ease the heat when it gets overwhelming. Therefore, if you eat the peppers infused in cheese, they will not have the same leven of heat that the straight pepper will. May we suggest you try the Paqui Tortilla Chip “one chip challenge”?

I found the cheese to be plenty hot, and the taste was delicious. Will buy again.

I had a scorpion cheese from Aldi’s. It’s the hottest I can find where I live in southwest Minnesota. Saw the guy talking about it and he took a big bite. He said that was to big and almost choked on it cuz it was so hot.

We love this cheese. It is hot but flavorful. We use it in omelets, tacos, and as garnish on eggs Benedict. It is fantastic! Tonight I am going to add it to macaroni and cheese.
