Out of Control
But the biggest problem was the container. There is no easy way to control delivery to a single portion. I bought this product because I couldn’t find the one I love, whose name I no longer know, which is granular and comes in a container with a grinder.
I will have to throw this away before it destroys a meal or hurts someone.
Finally, a solution to my problems! I can put this powder into a little pill container and place it in my purse for instant spice action. So awesome. Carrying hotsauce in my purse was just too burdensome and most of them should be refrigerated anyhow. Rock on.
Amazing service! LOVE
That isn’t why I’m giving this only three stars though.
First off the taste – it was terrible. I haven’t tried the peppers themselves yet, but the powder tastes awful I’ve tried it with soup and chips, and it worked slightly better with chips – and made my soup taste bad. It’s a bit hard to describe – bitter and dry I guess would be the best way to describe it. Not sweet like I expected… I have heard ghost peppers have a somewhat similar sweet taste to the habanero. In this powder though I don’t taste that at all.
Second this stuff is very… dust like.
you have to be very careful pouring it, because it is ground so fine that it gets into the air easier than anything I’ve ever seen. Fortunately when I breathe it in, it doesn’t really burn – I guess it’s just to small and insignificant of an amount to do that, but it does make me cough a lot.
I’ll update the review a bit more once I try out the peppers themselves, even though they are a bonus.
Edit: I got around to trying the peppers themselves, and the taste was similar. Perhaps I just don’t like the taste of these peppers. I definitely would not call them sweet tasting at all though.
In short, if you like Cayenne powder but you want more kick, Jolokia powder is perfect for you. If Jalapenos make you sweat… well, let’s just say you should look elsewhere.
A little goes a long way
Tasty and Spicey
Killer flavor with brutal heat!
I ordered both this and 1.5ox of habanero powder. in comparison to the habanero the ghost pepper powder is coarser in texture. Actual pods of both the habanero and ghost pepper were also packed with the order in heat-sealed zip-seal bags. Having the pods adds more to the conversation.
But the ghost pepper heat and flavor is right there. It’s a bit sweeter when compared to the habanero (at least to me). But the heat kicks in a few seconds later. And it does live up to the hype in regard to the heat. You don’t shake this wildly over your yummies. A slight dusting is good to start with. For some it may be too much. But we’re chileheads, right? The ghost pepper is a killer example of an attitude adjuster.
For heat-seeking adrenaline and endorphin junkies you can’t go wrong with this.
Sidenote: For those who want to give the ghost pepper a shot yet don’t want to spend $11+shipping on this you may want to check your local stores for Tropical Pepper Company Ghost Pepper Naga Jolokia Hot Sauce 5 Fl Oz. I found it at Sprankles’ supermarket in downtown Kittanning PA for $2.75 for a bottle of magnificent ghost pepper heat. It’s a good way to experiment first before going all-in for the pure purgatory of this pepper powder.
Great Ghost pepper powder!
Not insanely hot, but just right
P.S I give the seller 5 stars – Ordered late Saturday and received on a Wednesday!
Bhut Jolokia Powder
very spicy and tasty, recommended
The Spice Is Nice
My friend received his first, and had a hard time sharing with my husband. (hubby doesn’t know he’s getting one yet)
They both loved it. The peppers that came with it were dried whole and they are also great!
My husband is determined to harvest the seeds and grow his own Bhut Jolokia peppers.
