It’s being attempted once again, but what is the Hot Chip Challenge?
With everything going on, sometimes even the most bizarre distractions are welcomed.
Of course, being at home all the time can be pretty boring. Streaming services like Netflix and Disney+ have proven to be total rays of sunshine, providing us with endless hours of entertainment. However, you can’t watch TV all the time, and some have decided to resurrect a certain challenge!
Challenges have become increasingly common in the social media age, and with the likes of TikTok emerging, users have been even more inventive in coming up with new ideas.
Some are certainly better than others, and personally, few challenges have delivered such hilarious results as the Hot Chip Challenge…
Hot Chip Challenge
The Hot Chip Challenge was also popularised under the name of the One Chip Challenge, but whatever you want to call it, the results are just as brilliant all the same.
It first surfaced back in 2017, with people taking on the task of eating the hottest chip in the world made with the feared Carolina Reaper.
The product was sold by Paqui Chips and a number of celebrities attempted to take it on on chat shows and news broadcasts. Some of the videos it spawned are absolutely priceless and YouTube is a goldmine of documented efforts.
Over on the Paqui site, the product description reads: “The #OneChipChallenge is back and the new, hotter-than-hell chip looks as deadly as it tastes. This year’s version contains a blue corn chip dipped in an intense amount of black seasoning made with the infamous Carolina Reaper Pepper, the world’s hottest chili pepper.”
So, can you buy one?
Hot Chip Challenge: Where to buy!
Unfortunately, they are completely out of stock over on the website. However, it’s worth checking in at a later date.
A range of other products are available, but it’s noted that “due to extraordinarily high demand, processing and delivery of your order may be delayed. We appreciate your continued patience.”
However, you can pick one up on eBay or Amazon, but the price is through the roof!
Just search for the product on Amazon and other online retail websites.
One seller was offering the product for £88.53 (pack of 5) on eBay but it seems that it’s sold out at the time of writing.
On the other hand, there is a range of sellers selling a similar product on eBay for much cheaper, but it’s important to note that these are not the Paqui product.
