  1. bonifacio bio

    Great flavor. Perfect amount of spiciness. It’s what you would expect from ghost pepper. If you want something spicier get the Carolina reaper powder.

  2. Rjones

    Exactly as described! ??

  3. Tassie

    Best Ghost Pepper I’ve Tried
    I frequently buy ghost pepper and always loved Trader Joe’s GP; however, this one is my new favorite! I was afraid of the packaging only because it didn’t look as “professional”, but the flavor is really good and the heat is delicious and creeps on. I am buying more to have one at home and at my office!

  4. Harry Bauls

    Put it on everything
    This stuff is amazing, I always keep it out on the table cause i use it nearly every day. Gives any food a spicy kick without changing the flavor of your food too much like hot sauce. There is a hint of smoke too, which is not overdone. And as little as you have to use to get the spicy effect, this bottle is an extremely good value.

  5. Kenzi

    Now my most used seasoning in the house!
    This stuff is great. I put it on pizza, fries, chicken, in my fajitas and even on chips. Definitely only get it if you can handle a lot of spice and use it sparingly, as a little goes a long way. It is also really great for keeping roommates out of your food-put a little dash on top of whatever your roommate has been stealing and they will never eat anything of yours ever again!

  6. Aizko

    The Best
    This stuff is amazing. Super hot and super delicious. The warnings are real, tho. You definitely have to be a spice loving person to use this in any quantity. That said, it is great.

  7. john sutton

  10. A.C.

    As a hothead, I always make sure that I have a container of this in my kitchen. I literally put it on everything! It has a nice Smokey flavor and gives everything a (mighty) kick. Highly recommended!

  11. HC Customer

    Not Bad
    Wasn’t as hot as I was expecting but still a very decent amount of heat. The flavor is a bit different but I suspect that that comes from the peppers being smoked. Not unpleasant, just different. I have dried and ground my own in the past and felt that this was just an easier way to go. I will buy again but probably the one that the peppers are not smoked.

  12. M. Kedra

    The Ghost lives up to its Rep
    Definitely lives up to its reputation as (one of) the World’s hottest pepper(s). I have a considerable heat tolerance and love hot food. I literally “microsprinkle” to keep food edible as opposed to intolerably hot. Flavor of the Ghost is quite pleasant, scotch-bonnet like IMHO. I like it on popcorn, just don’t cough and suck it into your lungs while consuming, quite unpleasant. This container should last quite awhile!!

  13. Stc2581

    Great kick to add to beef jerky.

  14. Manaconda

    Hot ya’ll! Whew mother #$&*)(&#@ HOT! Made some beef jerky with it, and took it to work. I had more people come up just to try it. Then five min later they’re dragging someone else they know to their doom. This went on all morning. Was hysterical!

    Has a good flavor, but certainly has heat.

  22. Michael Tomlinson

    Whoa! Wicked – yes. Tickle – no.
    Truth in advertising. This product is potent and every bit as wicked as promoted. Used (very) sparingly, a light dusting of this pure chili powder will turn just about anything into an exercise of “how hot can you take it?” Just what I wanted, but be cautious users. One dash too many and you’ve doomed the host dish for the rubbish bin.

  23. Roger liby

    Wicked hot love it

  24. peter r

    For spicy pepper pros only
    I totally love the flavor of these dried Ghost Peppers. I use them on sandwiches, in stews. in chili, etc.
    Always boosts the flavor to a new dimension. But beware – these are super hot!. If you put too much you will suffer, guaranteed.

  25. ROCKY

    Good stuff.
    Really good nice Smokey flavor and hot.

  26. Hawk

    great taste
    This stuff will light you up so be careful.

  27. Janos

    HOT but with great taste
    I actually had bought this before off eBay so this was really just a re-purchase. Another words, after using it up, I wanted more so I bought it! While this is extremely hot, it honestly tastes great. It’s not just all heat. The smoked flavor is what I think sets it apart from other chili powders. You don’t need much to get the desired effect. The last bottle of this lasted about 10 months with almost daily use.

  28. Timothy B. Riley

    I love mine. A great high powered chili.
    I like to add some heat to my dishes but I know that not everyone shares my taste. When I make jambalaya, for instance, I make it according to my original recipe which brings it to a medium spiciness, maybe a five out of ten. I then serve it to others and then divide off mine and add some of this spice to it. I know that just a little bit goes a long way and I also offer the Ghost pepper version to some my guests who say they like a real spicy stew. Some can handle it and some can’t. This pepper has a clean but smoky flavor, it is also a little fruity. It is not just hot but it is also complex.

    I bought some canned, high-end European sardines last month that just needed an extra punch. A tiny bit of this Ghost pepper really woke them up.

    If you haven’t worked with extremely hot ground peppers this is not the place to start. This can really hurt you. Use gloves and don’t touch your face when handling them. Since you don’t need much this jar should last most people a year or so, after that I will be buying another jar. I like the heat, the flavor and the quality. I highly recommend it to the chili enthusiast!

  29. Clint Chandler

    It hott!
    Very spicy! Good stuff! Lil dash of it on soup, chili or whatever it works!

    Great taste
    I ate this whole thing in 3 weeks it’s delicious. It’s hot but has that nice smoky flavor. Will for sure buy more! It’s great in ramen or soup or burgers or salsa literally anything.

  33. toddsayshi

    Burn Baby Burn
    This is exactly as advertised. Just a little bit will go a long way. I added a few shakes to a bag of popcorn, and my lips are on fire. Good stuff!

  34. Todd W

    Please respect this stuff!
    This is indeed one of the so-called “super peppers”. It is very VERY hot. Being a powder, I wear a dust mask when using it. You do NOT want this stuff in your nose! Not even one speck. So also resist the temptation to sniff it to see if it “smells smoky”.

    If you respect this powder, and use it VERY sparingly (increasing it to your desired level of torture incrementally), you’ll be able to take it. I didn’t say TASTE, but TAKE. Truth is it’s so potent that all but a Reaper muncher will have to use such a small amount of it you won’t taste a thing. Even an eighth of a teaspoon will light any bland bowl of soup on fire. However, you aren’t going to taste any smoke, or even pepper. At least I didn’t. This is not Chipotle powder. Even egg salad doesn’t tame the heat much. I never could use enough to taste it.

    I was looking for spicier than Chipotle. This delivered – a little too much. Turns out I am no pepper head.

  35. Matthew

    Use sparingly, it will get ya!
    Best purchase I’ve made in a while! Perfect addition to my Jerky receipts! Co-workers were dying from the heat!

  36. Doreen

    This is HOT stuff. Just a few shakes in my big pot of chili made a difference….however, it tastes good, especially if you like really spicy stuff!!!

  37. Joe

    Lives up to its name
    I LOVE spicy food and Cayenne pepper just wasn’t doing it for me any more 1 light tap of this and my mouth is tingling with fire (and it’s a great way to catch a food thief in a sober house)

    Perfect for spicing up dishes for my friends who aren’t ready for Scorpion or Reaper powder, very fragrant, you don’t need a lot, and it does the job. Phenomenal on pizza, not too spicy, very tasty. This company will be my go to for this again and again

  39. E

    Insanely spicy.. just a small dusting will start to make your eyes water before you even eat it. The ingreadents are applewood and ghost pepper.

  40. Big-T

    Oficially HOT!
    Be careful! Try dipping a tooth pick into the stuff for a sample. My tongue is burning after eating a cup of ice after a dash on the back of my hand for a taste. And, I eat Jalipenios raw out of the garden. One dash in a pot of soup will be plenty.

  41. asf146

    swabbed a little of the dust off the top of the shaker upon opening, to taste it.
    I don’t know what else to say other than, it is hotter than hell.

  42. Chris Harris

    Not as hot as I’d expected. Still very good smokey flavor and a bit of heat.

  43. TX_CMR

    Delivers a might blow of ghost pepper!
    This stuff is awesome! We add it to sauces, trail mix, taco meat, steamed veggies, hamburgers and popcorn for a punch of heat. A little goes a very long way.

    Good Smokey Flavor – Recommended!
    Heat factor is as expected and was pleasantly surprised by the nice smokey flavor. Works especially well with pasta or on meat dishes. Be careful when using in liquid style dishes (soups, sauces, etc.) as the liquid really exacerbates the heat by spreading it around in your mouth.

    Hot with slight fruity taste
    First, it’s super hot. But I think everyone ordering smoked ghost pepper powder not only expects but demands that.

    But it’s not just hot. It also has the wonderful fruity flavor that ghost pepper has. Depending on one’s heat tolerance, you can use a little bit to add spicy and still have the added pure fruity flavor that one doesn’t find in a lot of sauces, particularly those which contain extracts. Again, though: it is super hot! Absolutely 5/5 stars. Not to mention — the jar will last most people a long while!

    Serious heat and good flavor in a powdered form
    Nice! Very nice! When I got it, I took a whiff. I could tell right away that it was seriously hot, but with a nice smoky flavor profile. As with most powdered spices I obtain, I shook out a little (perhaps about 1/16 tsp) and put it to my tongue. The flavor was wonderful. The heat crept up slowly and built to a crescendo about 2 minutes later. It had been years since anything like this had caused me to drool in pain over the sink, but this stuff did! The flavor and the heat are well balanced and will no doubt find a place in many of my ad-hoc dishes.

    For comparison, it is much, much hotter than cayenne (~20-30x). It is on par with similar quantities of extract-based hot sauces. I doubted the 1,000,000 scoville rating mentioned on the label, but now believe that it is at least within that ballpark. A little sprinkle on your eggs in the morning will definitely get your day off to a nice start!

    For dinner, I had an Indian curry and garbanzo bean dish that I served over rice. Before augmentation, the dish was plain, not spicy. I put a small ‘sprinkle’ (far less than I would put of salt or black pepper) on the dish. After that, it was seriously hot. About what I would expect from a good Indian or Nepalese restaurant after asking for “extra hot”. It was actually seriously and respectably hot! (like, Dave’s Insanity hot) Just from a little sprinkle!

    I am very pleased with this purchase. The amount I got and its seasoning capabilities are well worth the price.

  59. mondaymoos

    We like flavored popcorn
    This stuff is not here to play. We like flavored popcorn, so we bought some spicy and some blue cheese because we thought… “wooo wings flavored popcorn!” Nah. This ain’t that. This is here to burn the face off of your friend who brags about how much they love spicy food.

  60. AmandaFamanda

    Good, but be careful.
    Awesome, as long as you don’t dump it into a pot of boiling water.
    Hubby ended up practically pepper spraying the house!

    Super hot!

  61. d

    The spice is very potent but not rude like say a green jalapeno. It comes on solidly like a chipotle Jalapeno and builds to a profound caspacian firestorm. The smokey flavor is perfect and real smoke. It is not the artificial smoke either. This is now one of my favorite spice products. If you honestly enjoy ghost pepper this little amazing jar of awesome will not disappoint !

    Hottest thing I’ve ever tasted.
    HOLY S**T!!! My wife sprinkled a tiny little bit in my hand and asked me to try it. I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO DIE!!! She bought this stuff to sprinkle on the bird seed to keep the squirrels off of it. If any squirrel can survive eating this stuff it DESERVES to steal the seed. I thought I knew what hot was, but I had no clue.

    And don’t ask me how it tasted. I have no clue. My mouth was on fire. I couldn’t taste anything.

    By the way… I love spicy stuff. I grew up in New Mexico eating raw jalapenos. I can handle some heat. When I order buffalo wings I always order the hottest ones they sell and I don’t even get the sniffles. Nothing compares to the heat from this powder.

  76. D. G. Henry

    Flame on!
    A little history, just so that you get a sense of my tastes. I’ve been a flame breather for over 25 years so my tolerances are very high… I love the burn so much that my Hispanic friends don’t even come close, in fact they say I’m crazy. With that out of the way I’ll say that I’m on my seventh container of this stuff, I love it… It has a very nice bite to it, but not so bad that if you “stump your toe” you’ll ruin the dish.. I will also admit that the heat seems to dissipate over time, if it takes a couple months to consume, it’s definitely milder near the end… I certainly can’t explain that.

    The last package arrived ripped with no contents inside, a quick e-mail to Wicked Tickle with a picture of the package and they quickly sent a replacement.

    I’ll be back again and again…

    but also has a great taste. A word of caution
    This stuff packs a serious punch, but also has a great taste. A word of caution: be careful with this stuff. I first used this product when I was grilling a couple hamburgers. I shaked a very small pinch on each burger very carefully, and within a few minutes I apparently inhaled the fumes of it and had to walk away from the grill to breath. I now only use this as a seasoning after food items are cooked. Would definitely recommend it if you like spicy.

    Don’t breathe it in!
    The reason I bought this stuff is that I was getting tired of having to cut up the whole smoked-dry peppers everytime I wanted to spice up my food. But the problem with this product is that the powder is so fine that it can get into your nostrils if you are not careful. I guess I was expecting flakes, maybe even some bits of seeds, etc., not the very fine powder that I’ve got. Anyway, I do hope that I can find a way spice up my food without having to sneeze 2 or 3 times in the process…

    Not the same as it was. Very disappointed!
    I purchased 2 bottles of the Smoked Ghost Pepper powder back in April of 2016, and then 2 bottles in November of 2016. I was very satisfied with the first order. It was awesome, pretty much perfect. It was a nice hot, slightly course, powder with a great smokey taste. It was so good that I ordered 2 bottles again several months later. The second order was sadly totally different. The 2 bottles have about zero smoke flavor and they ground it into a finer powder that floats in the air. It almost taste like hot lawn clippings this time around. I still have a little left from my first order, so I did do a side by side and taste comparison. I’m so disappointed that they let me down and ruined their recipe. Unfortunately I’m now considering another option.

  93. jOdY kNiGhT

    WOW!!! XXX HOT
    I’ll admit, I’m a seasoned spice lover. I’ve built my tolerance up for hot stuff throughout my life, starting at age four. I’m now thirty seven. I use to be able to handle about anything but I’ve noticed over the past couple years, my ability to handle the super hottest things on the planet that you see in novelty stores with crazy names like death sauce and stuff like that has started to weaken. Don’t get me wrong, my weaker state these days makes things feel hotter but, I truly believe that this dust is one of the hottest and best tasting fire dusts on the open market today. And, it tastes really, really good. Has a strong, smoky, grill taste that screams steak and potatoes. But, it’s real good on other stuff like chicken, fish, fries, green beans, hamburgers, chili dogs and yes, even vanilla ice cream. I disn’t think it was going to be this good when I bought it but I was pleasantly suprised. I’m sure you will be too. So, buy it up and burn it up. You’ll be in a painful state of bliss, I promise!!!

    I again put this amazing spice on my pizza
    I just got this a few days ago and now I use it for everything and I’m basing my cooking on it. Breakfast, Dippy eggs I sprinkled some spice on them. Lunch, I again put this amazing spice on my pizza, and dinner smoked chicken covered in this amazing ghost pepper. I’m sweating a little when eating and I feel the burn the entire time it’s not overwhelming but you can obviously use your desired amount a few dashes seems to be enough for a whole meal it’s very flavorful and you can tell its homemade with the bits and pieces and different little bits you get.

    Awesome flavor, but packs a nasty punch. I actually wish it wasn’t so spicy because it tastes so good but it does come with a caution label if that tells you anything. No complaints. This powder will probably be enough to spice every meal I eat for decades, no exaggeration. Seriously, this stuff is spicy as all hell.

    Very nice smokey flavor. Hot but not rediculess.

    This is a no-joke powder which brings the heat! A tiny amount goes a long way in our jerky and chili.

  123. L. Mulei

    This has a good fairly strong bit of heat to it, and good fairly mild taste, imo. Which is just about perfect for me. I am using this on foods when I want some heat but when the vinegar of my favorite hot sauce (Tabasco) won’t go well.

    Great but not perfect.
    Has all the heat you’d expect from a ghost pepper but one star off for not much of a smoky flavor. Or maybe it’s just so hot I couldn’t taste the smoke. Still, I’ll buy it again.

    This is some HOT stuff. Just add a dash to chili or whatever you want to spice up, stir well and eat with caution. This will last all year.

  132. Sifo Dyas

    One of the best! Not just raw heat, but a ton of flavor too (very smokey taste). Goes fantastic in salsas, caesars, bloody marys, scrambled eggs, perogi and sour cream dishes, chili, you name it.

    NEVER throw this on top of a stir-fry though: it’s a fine powder, and aside of ruining the taste, the heat will aerosolize the pepper and your entire apartment will be like someone just discharged a canister of bear spray in it (something with which I have first hand knowledge, sadly).

    Excellent product!

  133. randy

    Real good, quality ghost chili pepper powder. The smoked applewood makes a wonderful additive. Im a big hot fan, and a good ounce of this makes you salivate like waterfall, fully satisfied.

  134. Josh

    Good heat, but the pepper is overpowered by the smoke.
    This stuff is very spicy, but the smoking process they use completely masks the flavor of the pepper, which has a unique and delicious flavor of its own. It’s better off used in bbq flavored foods where the smoke flavoring works great. It also works amazingly well in a heavily seasoned chili. Just avoid using in traditional buffalo wing sauce, the smoke seems out of place and makes things just taste odd.

  135. Andrew C.

    Great flavor, only good heat
    One of my coworkers used this in his chili. I enjoyed it so much, I had to try some. It gives food a good flavor as well as a good heat. I’m only deducting a star because I was expecting more heat for the amount I used. I get more heat per measure from cayenne pepper powder.

  136. Steve W.

    I prefer the taste and heat of he scorpion chili
    Using this alone provides a nice heat level and okay flavor, but combining with other chilis brings out a bitter after taste similar to habanero. I much prefer the scorpion chili which has equal heat without the bitter accent; I find it much easier to balance.

  137. SayNo2NWO

    I don’t like concentrate, so this powder works great for me
    This stuff is hot. I’ve been a pepper freak all my life and have built up a big tolerance for heat. I don’t like concentrate, so this powder works great for me. I also like that the smoke flavor is not overpowering, which I found to be the case with Volcanic Pepper brand powder. Which is also a great product, I’m not knocking them. Black Skull, large quantity for an excellent price. It WILL melt your face if you use enough!!!!

    Black Skull Powder Is Magic
    This is my second bottle of this chili powder. I’m a “heat seeker” and love all things that are spicy. The spicier, the better… My first bottle had a great smoky flavor and a good amount of heat (compared to eating a fully seeded jalapeno) but nothing too crazy. The second bottle I received had that same great smoky flavor but with 10x hotter. I actually had to scale back the amount I used this time around. Needless to say, spicy or mild, they both still tasted great on everything.

    I love this stuff. HOT AS HELL so use caution when handling. Wash your hands, use gloves and keep your hands away from your eyes or else you will be sorry… Good on a variety of things such as, popcorn, meats, veggies, even cocoa, just about anything except desserts. Finally, unless your from another planet, a little ( I mean little) goes a long way. If you accidentally use too much, throw the stuff out! Don’t take the chance! This stuff take chilli to another level! Yummy! I keep a bottle in my car.

    If you like to really spice up your food, this will definitely do the trick and a little goes a long way. Even better, the flavor is amazing. This isn’t just chili powder with more “heat”. It has a rich smoky flavor that improves the taste of anything. I add this to finished foods to kick them up a notch, but it’s soooo much better when cooked into your food, like meat on the grill, or in chili, etc. But be careful when cooking with it indoors, because it can and will cause eye and nose irritation throughout the house if you cook without good ventilation.

  157. G-Man

    Wicked good
    First, the Apple Wood smoke adds a depth of flavor that absolutely works well with the ghost pepper. As crazy as it sounds, the Apple Wood actually pairs well with grilled fruit. Dash a little of this powder on the grilled fruit and it helps to balance the sticky sweetness of the caramelized fruit with a little smokiness and some heat. What it does for any vegetables is make them even more palatable. Meats and sauces are kicked up with the heat, but also with the slightly sweet smokiness of the Apple Wood. Don’t forget to use it on seafood either! What a great addition to the pantry for those who like some flavor with their heat. Enjoy!

    Came on time and the level of spiciness is off the charts! My brother tried this powder and he loves it.

    Use this very sparingly. I used way too much on my pizza and it took a pint ice cream to quench the flames. Good flames though.

    lots of smoky heat with a minimum of bitterness
    Really love this stuff on just about everything but dessert. Just a little shake adds a delicious smoky heat. I don’t have to worry about buying the hottest salsas any more as I can crank the heat up to any level that I desire with this. Love it.

    It really isn’t as hot as you would expect from ghost peppers… but what it lacks in heat it makes up in flavor. This stuff it awesome in chili or sprinkled on french fries. I will be buying again before I run out.

    fantastic taste
    I ordered this at first as a joke to my husband who loves everything very
    spicy. As you know Ghost pepper is the HOTTEST pepper there is. I was surprised to find that it is tasty too! I find myself adding it to many dishes-don’t be afraid of the heat-it’s good for you.

  169. kchercmech

    Wonderful flavor – but not as hot as I was expecting
    I am a man who LOVES heat in his food. This was the first 100% Ghost Pepper I have ever tried. Typically I enjoy the Red Savina habanero as it is somewhere around 400,000 scoville. Supposedly, this is supposed to be over a million scoville; however, it has not ‘lit me up’. I think it is due to it being a powder – don’t really know.

    Ok, the taste – the wonderful smokey flavor will do wonders for your food especially if you grill often. I have put this stuff on everything to include cucumbers and watermelon with great results. It DOES have heat, just not as much as I expected. For comparison, I think the hot sauce named “Da Bomb” is a bit hotter than this – but, Da Bomb cannot compete with the mouth watering flavor of this applewood smoked powder.

    NOTE** When you use it outside, it quickly becomes a tear gas with even the slightest wind. I accidentally released this novice chemical weapon at our last cookout and resulted in a bunch of people sitting around me begin sneezing. Kind of comical actually, but it was not intended.

    All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend this as the flavor enhances any cooked meat, or salad, or even fruit. It gives everything a smoke hint similar to “Liquid Smoke”. And it will make you sweat a little bit. I have since moved on to using actual ghost peppers and slicing and dicing them myself to add to my concoctions because I cannot find a commercially available sauce that comes close to where I think 1-2 million scoville should be. The real peppers are VERY hot especially because I use the seeds as well as the pepper’s ‘meat’ in my sauces.

    Arrived quickly, appropriately packaged; no issues there. This stuff will get your attention. Go lightly until you find your heat level. You can always add, you can’t take away.

    Good Flavor
    So many chili powders offer heat without flavor. Or the flavor is just plain awful. This one’s different. It’s actually fairly mild. I sprinkle on main dishes, salads, and sides as I would regular pepper. It gives every dish I have tried it on a nice tangy bite. But the smoky flavor is exceptional. My friends love it. The kids love it! And I recommend it!

  173. DigMeUp

    Plenty Hot
    As a person who has consumed a lot of the 4 million Scoville sauce made by CaJohns called, Z Nothing Beyond,. I can honestly say that this is a seriously hot powder. And that it is safer mixed into a sauce or cheese or something so that you are not in direct full contact with the powder in any way. A little of this powder goes a long way. And the powder has a nice strong smokey quality that is more smokey than Chipotle pepper powder.
    All around it is very very nice. But it’s hot,. Be Careful.

  174. Tim

    i love this i use it on anything i can only problem at first was getting used to it. it can also dry out whatever you put it on so use wisely, otherwise buy if you like a lot of heat on your food.

    Hmmmm good, smoked ghost peppers…
    Best tasting crushed pepper on this planet. Yes it’ s smoking hot but what a unique flavor. The smell of this smoked pepper arouses the taste buds. Full body and flavor, resulting in craving for more. Not bitter such as bonnet or habanero. Best to try with a tooth pick to determine one’s tolerance, then sprinkle accordingly and enjoy this unique flavorful smoked pepper. Hmmm good and well worth every penny as a little goes a long way. Lingering flavor has the brain craving for more.
