One of the world's hottest cheeses is coming to a counter near you - we've made a cheddar infused with the world’s hottest chilli, the Carolina Reaper, which is 300 times hotter than the Jalapeño chilli and Tabasco sauce.

Our Reaper Chilli Cheddar comes with an extreme heat warning and is available over-the-counter on Market Street for £1.50 per 120g

According to the Guinness World Records, the Carolina Reaper is the world’s hottest chilli with an average heat level of 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units (SHU) – although the hottest ever recorded was 2.2 million SHU. A Jalapeño chilli registers only 5,000 SHU on average.

We're launching the Reaper Chilli Cheddar to keep things hot for the summer BBQ season, offering the daring cheese fans out ther lots more added 'kick' for your summer burgers. 

Daniel Barrett, Deli Cheese Buyer at Morrisons, says...

“Some customers have told us that they’d love us to sell more really hot foods. So they’ve increasingly been buying cheddars with chilli in and this is the hottest we’ve ever served. It is perfect on top of a BBQ burger but it’s definitely not for the faint-hearted. So we advise handling – and tasting – with care.”
