You need a waiver to eat this Ghost Pepper ice cream Print


The sweet confection starts out with the shop?s signature African vanilla ice cream, ribboned with strawberry sauce and flavored with mash made of several hot sauces and Ghost Peppers-- one of the world's hottest peppers, measuring in at 1 million Scoville units. (Tabasco sauce measure just 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville heat units.)


Owner Chip Hearn, who runs the 45-year-old boardwalk institution, is proud of all of his unusual creations but the Ghost Pepper is close to his heart since he also runs a hot sauce store called Peppers.


"They're tasting it and they're talking about it. That's the game," Hearn told Delaware Online. The ice cream's creamy milk base takes helps soothe the tongue after eating spicy foods, so those wary of the eye-watering treat order extra vanilla.


The ice cream has been offered since 2012 but this year has been Hearn?s busiest. He says his employees usually hand out at least 200 tastes each week. But don?t expect to just ask for a spoonful and be on your merry way. Patrons must serve sign a comprehensive waiver before embarking on this potentially hazardous journey.


No under the age of 18, or over the age of 65 is permitted to even sample the dessert. Pregnant women, lactating mothers, or men with erectile dysfunction are banned from eating it.


?Anyone with heart ailments, vascular problems, respiratory problems, back problems, vision problems, high blood pressure, sinus conditions, digestive problems, circulation problems, immune problems, neurological or problems with authority should not taste this product!? the waiver warns.
