Paqui Trots Out 5th Annual Paqui One Chip Challenge for 2021

Paqui welcomes back their One Chip Challenge for the fifth year, which offers their latest take on the spiciest chip you can put in your mouth.

This year's iteration features a tortilla chip coated with the spicy heat of both the Carolina Reaper and Scorpion Pepper. According to Paqui, this marks the least number of peppers in the spice mix so far with instant heat from the Scorpion Pepper paired with the gradual heat of the Carolina Reaper. Besides the two peppers, the blue corn tortilla chips is also seasoned with sea salt (it's completely covered in the chili powder of the two peppers though).

You can pick up the 2021 Paqui One Chip Challenge for a limited time for $6.99 online from or from participating local retailers.

Paqui offers some tips if you're planning on taking them up on the One Chip Challenge:

- Avoid consuming carbonated drinks before.

- Don't do it at night, before a workday, or on an empty stomach.

- Suggested remedies to help take the edge of the heat include consuming coconut milk, ice cream, and chocolate and/or swallowing a spoonful of olive oil prior. Taking a nap afterwards might also help.
