Red Robin launches two new burgers featuring ghost peppers
If you like hot and spicy meat in your mouth, Red Robin has introduced two new burgers you’ll want to try.
Red Robin is now the first restaurant chain in its size to offer one of the world’s hottest peppers on record, the ghost pepper, on its menu.
Red Robin has added two burgers to their menu, both featuring ghost peppers. The first is the Fiery Ghost — a burger with ghost peppers plus fried jalapeños and pepper jack cheese. The second is the Cry Baby, which combines “crispy onion straws tossed in a unique Sriracha dry seasoning with even more onions sauteed in Choulula Hot Sauce.” It’s all topped with ghost pepper ketchup.
According to the Scoville Scale, which measures the heat of hot peppers, the ghost pepper (a.k.a. Bhut Jolokia) hits 1,000,000 heat units. Compare that to the Habanero chili, which falls at around 100,000, or the jalapeño, which only scores about 3,500 to 8,000.
The next step above ghost peppers on the scale is pepper spray. Would love to spritz some pepper spray on a hamburger.
