Unlike most spicy chocolate caramels that are merely accented by a hint of cayenne pepper, Theo's Ghost Chili Caramels get their heat from ghost chili peppers. The buttery texture of the dark caramel chocolates is contrasted by a sprinkling of dried chilis and Hawaiian red sea salt. While the average jalapeno pepper comes in somewhere between 2,500 to 8,000 on the Scoville scale, ghost peppers pack a punch anywhere between 855,000 to well over a million units.
Theo's Ghost Chili Caramels were recently awarded Gold in the 2019 Caramel Awards.
The intense heat of spicy peppers can now be found in everything from sandwiches to mocktails, aiming to satisfy consumers who are looking for experiences to share around food.
