Kagegiving: Blue Diamond Carolina Reaper Almonds

INTRODUCTION: In my ever growing quest for hot products, we find ourselves at yet another reaper based item and boy is this gonna be fun.

Smell: Good. Almond scent is faint, but you can tell real pepper was used to create this. Sadly, it doesn’t smell like reaper either.

VISUAL: Nice looking. Orange to reddish hue, covered in a nice dust of pepper.

TASTE: A lot like Andy Caps hot fries. Kinda makes a squeaky noise when chewed. Soft texture, like most almonds.

HEAT: Well, it’s not Reaper heat. I know because I have a bottle of dehydrated ones in my room, of which I have eaten two. Sadly, I was drunk when I did it, so to make them hotter, putting them on a slice of pizza. Not bad, but I don’t recall it being overly horrible. This doesn’t come close to reaper. It’s another faux reaper product. For someone who is new, will it be a significant burn? Well, my sister tried one and commented that it has a good burn, but it was tolerable. My sister doesn’t eat spicy food at the level I do, so let that sink in. She has barely tried anything hotter than a jalapeño. In other words, it is mostly bullshit.

CONCLUSION: This product is for casuals that want to boast they tried a reaper product, but without the pain of a real reaper based product. Those of us in the know will get a slight tingling and a decent flavor but not much else. I tried their ghost pepper ones as well and thought those were BS as well. So I should of known better, but atlas, I did not. For KAGEMAS I should review beer, because at least I would get a buzz, instead of weak ass, fronting almonds. The serving size says 28 almonds, so right there should of been the dead give away that it wasn’t good. I ate 40 of them last night and well, unlike tomorrows review, these didn’t even hurt on the way out. So are they something to be thankful for? Clearly not.
