Blog: Ice cream can be hot stuff

Catherine Sleep | 11 July 2006

I've just heard about one foodstuff I bet competitive eaters WON’T be queuing up to try – an ice cream so hot it can make grown men weep. In fact, consumers have to sign a waiver and it’s plain off limits for children and pregnant women.

Mildly unconventional flavour combination enjoy popular appeal – sweet jellies with savoury meats and so on – but this sounds like a challenge rather than a pleasure. Called Cold Sweat, the ice cream contains three kinds of pepper and even the North Carolina-based inventor won’t touch it. What is it with these macho foods? Why do we have to prove our bravado through what we eat?

Fortunately I live far, far away from North Carolina, in a place safe from such perils. No such luck for News & Observer reporter Ryan Teague Beckwith, whose journalistic integrity left him no choice but to sign that waiver and brace himself.

He won't be going back for second helpings
