4: Caroline Reaper Peppers
This pepper is now officially the hottest pepper in the world as recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records, with the Scoville Heat Unit, a measure of spiciness, at 2.2 million. In comparison, the Red Savina Habanero is 500,000 SHU, and a regular jalapeno is about 8000 SHU. Needless to say, the Caroline Reaper Pepper is definitely hot enough to where you burn your taste buds off. Forever. You keep your taste buds with A Torch Against the Night.
