Exotic hot chilepepper products have been the latest internet buzz. Hormel has cashed in on a Ghost Reaper chili. These are two of the hottest peppers grown. I can personally attest that these peppers need respect and should be approached cautiously. Hormel announced this offering on social media. They set up a time that this product would be available for sale and sold out within the hour. I did procure one can. Within minutes Ebay had this product at 10 times the actual price. I am not sure what to say about that. Let's give it a try.
It was hot. I tasted fresh chile and it also had an after burn from the dried chiles. It was very decent in a Hormel Chili kind of way. With six different chile in this mix, I am not sure if I could identify ghost or reaper chile. Your senses were assaulted by fresh and dried all in a chilehead splendor kind of way. How hot was it? For most normal people I would say this concoction was very hot and you might not enjoy it. I eat some sort of chile everyday. I thought is was hot but not as hot as ghost and reaper chile can be. It was tame in this sense. Regardless of the downsizing of potential heat this mixture left my mouth on fire for quit awhile. I actually enjoyed this chili with chile. Good job Hormel.

Lucy you are a good girl. Why did you have to leave us? You have broken our hearts but have filled our hearts with all the love and affection that only you can bring. Lucy you are a brave girl. Look out Mr. Squirrel because you wanted to chase him. You greeted the postman with your faux ferocious barks and let the neighbor kids know this was your house. You were so brave when Uncle Johnny chased you with the remote car and jumped in my lap. Rocky wants to know where his sister has gone. He has some all-star wrestling moves he wants to try out on you. Rocky needs your collar to drag and pull on the morning walks. I am crying. Nobody wanted to watch Huel Howser with me but you. I did not even mind when you sat all 80 pounds in my lap. Your mommy misses you the most. You did not mind when she dressed you up in the silly costumes to go to A’s dog day at the ballpark. She loved to show you and win awards at the dog classes. You may have stayed out in the rain and got all muddy but she really did like to rinse and towel you. Oh Lucy you were so brave that you did not even want to tell us you were sick. Lucy we love you. Lucy you are a good girl.
