The Viper Challenge
Think you’re all tough and brave? Are you a gal or guy who thumps their chest and proudly proclaims invincibility to hot stuff? Well, the Viper Challenge at the Red Dog Saloon is calling you out with their ‘Viper’ hot chicken wing challenge.
If you think that you’re hot stuff, find out by taking the Red Dog Saloon’s Viper Challenge. All you have to do, is eat six chicken wings, smothered in sauce made from Naga Viper chilies, known as the world’s hottest chili peppers, in ten minutes. Sounds seriously easy doesn’t it? I mean, really? How hard can it be to scarf down six wings in 10 minutes? Oh, you say that you can go through a whole bucket of spicy wings in half that time? Bring it on!
Six Little Pieces Of Hell
These six little piece of Hell will make you feel like drinking molten lava to cool your mouth down. The Red Dog Saloon, in London’s Hoxton district (in Hackney Borough) introduced its Viper Hot Chicken Wings Challenge in 2011 and since then it’s really been ‘separating the men from the boys’.
The requirements of the Viper Chicken Wing Challenge are pretty simple. In order to beat the challenge a person has to eat six of the hot wings in ten minutes, then last an extra five minutes after taking the final bite without leaving the table or putting any liquids or other solids in their mouth. It’s that ‘Burn Time, Baby!’ that really affects daredevils who are crazy enough to let themselves be bitten by the Viper.
Just to give you an approximation of how hot a Naga Viper chili is, Tabasco sauce ranks about 5,000 units on the Scoville Scale. The Naga Viper chili pepper is ranked at 1,359,000 units. Ladies and gentlemen, that’s 2,500 times hotter than a Jalapeno. Still think you can take on the Red Dog Challenge?
We dare you. We double-dare you!
