Paqui’s One Chip Challenge.
I conquered it without breaking down! My cousin half-completed it… and my uncle, well, he paid for it painfully, LOL. Check out the video as you continue reading –
What can I say? This Carolina reaper flavored tortilla chip is definitely the hottest chip I have ever ate in my life! It’s seasoned with the hottest pepper available in the world today. Yet, I believe I took the heat a lot better than other people based off their YouTube videos. I also know for certain that I took it far better than my uncle. Now, he is one of a whole different breed. Before we started recording, we tried to get him to get his milk or ice-cream ready, but he swore up and down that he didn’t need it. I guess he was determined to prove us all wrong.
At the start of the challenge, my cousin immediately spit out half of her chip and could not finish it. My uncle ate all of his chip, showed off for the camera and danced the whole time, and also chose to drink his Bud Ice instead of going with what was recommended. I believe that this ultimately what made him have the bad reaction that he did.
Shortly after taking this video, my uncle finished his beer then 5 minutes later he complained of his stomach and chest hurting. He tried to use the bathroom but it just got worse. He ran into the guest bedroom and started moaning and groaning in pain. He was sweating profusely all over. It almost looked like he was having a heart attack! The situation got so bad that we had to call an ambulance – NO LIE.
Soon after the paramedics came my Uncle started to gather his wits together, partly for the fact that he finally started to eat the ice cream that we insisted to him that he needed before we started. I felt bad as the situation was playing out because trying this chip was all my idea, but he ended up being OK and as the paramedics pulled away, he followed them out in order to “walk it out”. He probably had some awful indigestion due to the chip and the beer together. Bad combination!! With it all over with I can somewhat laugh about the situation now. I wish we had filmed the entire moment but at the time we were more worried about his welfare than anything else. This chip was not for the faint at heart!!!! WOW!
Well, at least I can say that I broke another fear and completed another thing on my bucket-list, lol. My uncle – not so much, but it’s all good!
