Imagine you like a girl and want to ask her out on a date. What will you do?. Perhaps trying a Naga Jolokia to impress her will feature in the bottom of your list or it won’t feature at all. But that is precisely The Flash did to win the affections of his girl.
This particular scene can be traced back to Season 1 Episode 13 titled ‘Nuclear Man’ of The Flash aired in February 2015. The Flash’s alter ego Barry Allen, portrayed by 26-year old actor Thomas Grant Gustin is seeking asking out his opposite lead character Linda Parker for a date. When he was turned down, he proved his affections were not spur-of-the-moment by munching on to a Naga Jolokia.
‘This is the Naga Jolokia or the ghost pepper. It is the world’s hottest pepper. If you do not agree to go on another date with me, I will eat it’, he said before eating it.
It seems he underestimated the power of the Naga Jolokia as within seconds of eating it, he was reeling on the floor and began vomiting. However that did the trick for him as his lady love agreed to go out with him. That doesn’t mean you will do the same as the Naga Jolokia is one of the hottest chillies in the world. The pepper has a Scoville rating of mind boggling 855,000 – 2,200,000 units.
Naga Jolokia is something not to be trifled with as an American man found it the hard way. The man tried to eat the Naga Jolokia but instead ended up burning a hole in his throat.
