Leave it to the fiery foods world to crucify hoaxers quickly. Remember the post yesterday about the alleged new hottest chile? It’s a hoax, and the Twitter account that allegedly represented the chile is gone.

Sorry for all the fuss. The Trinidad Scorpion is still the hottest, and we found that out first hand last night. As you were, and EAT MORE HEAT!

Big thanks goes out to Nick for the investigative work AND the heads up!
