Renfro Foods offers a variety of salsa products, like Mild Salsa and Ghost Pepper Salsa, that cater to consumers who love the heat and can handle varying levels of spiciness—now, the brand is adding to the extremely spicy end of its portfolio with Mrs. Renfro's California Reaper Salsa, its hottest product yet.
While the jalapeno pepper comes in at around 30,000 units on the Scoville scale, the Carolina Reaper pepper sits high up on the scale at about 1.5 million units. As such, the brand's new kind of salsa is touted as "more than just hot."
Carolina Reaper peppers are listed as the fourth ingredient in the salsa, following tomatoes, water and onion. Some of the other additions that help to round out the flavors of the ultra-fiery condiment include brown sugar, cilantro and even more spicy inclusions—jalapeno and chipotle peppers, plus ancho, guajillo and green chiles.
