Western Michigan Faculty & Staff Take The One Chip Challenge
If you've never heard of Paqui Chips' One Chip Challenge then you're really missing out on some super spicy fun. Basically this one individual chip made by Paqui Chips has been turned into a challenge. Paqui's One Chip Challenge involves eating the World's Hottest Chip, made using the Carolina Reaper, the hottest chili pepper in the world without eating or drinking anything for a full hour after. The Carolina Reaper has a Scoville measurement of 2.2 Million. To put that into perspective, a jalapeno pepper only measures around 2,500 on the heat scale...so it's pretty damn hot.
The sweat and the tears were real last week when faculty and residents from the Family Medicine residency program in Kalamazoo took part in the Paqui Chips #onechipchallenge. Their efforts were for a good cause to help with a holiday fundraiser launched by M3 Mark Canner to collect new board games, card games, and coloring books for patients at Bronson Children’s Hospital.
