Chilli Peppers as Superheroes

(5, average: out of 4)

Big, small, fiery or delicate – chillies come in a variety of unique flavours, shapes, colours and heat! Whilst some of these chillies have descriptive names, e.g “The Purple Beauty” (hint: it’s purple and beautiful), others have the strangest names:

 

  • The Carolina Reaper
  • Bolivian Rainbow
  • Infinity
  • Komodo Dragon
  • Naga Viper
  • Red Amazon
  • Tiger Paw

Inspired by these marvellous names, we couldn’t help notice they sounded remarkably like superheroes and villains. Who wouldn’t want to see the mighty Bolivian Rainbow take on the nefarious Carolina Reaper? So, never ones to turn down an opportunity to get creative, we grabbed a beer from the fridge, got out our colouring pencils, and reimagined some of the stranger chilli names as superheroes! Enjoy!

Carolina Reaper

When the Reaper calls: you answer. His searing scythe slices with the ferocity of hell itself – leaving you praying for death. The world’s hottest chilli delivers a deceptively fruity first bite, followed by molten lava. Not one for the faint hearted!

Birds Eye

Fast and flighty, slender yet smouldering – watch out for this winged-wonder’s fiery bird seeds! The small, colourful Bird’s Eye chillies have a lean, tapered shape and a hot, if fleeting, fieriness.

Madame Jeanette

This South American sorceress bewitches her victims with her tropical sweetness before unleashing an intense and fiery assault. The Madame Jeanette pepper packs a heat up to 130 times hotter than the jalapeño! The heat starts from the first bite and lasts until way after the last.

Scotch Bonnet

Short, stout and savage; this Scotsman has a fiery reputation, with a temper to match! Watch out for his blazing bagpipes! The infamous Scotch Bonnet is a staple of Caribbean cuisine, with a heat similar to the jalapeño.

Tangerine Dream

AKA The Orange Crush. Always the good guy; sharp and sweet, but built like a rocket and ready to fight for what’s right when the time comes. A low-heat, super sweet chilli with a distinctive rocket-shape and striking orange colour.
