ANGIER, N.C. -- Cold Sweat ice cream is hot. In fact, it's so hot customers at Sunni Sky's ice cream shop in Angier, N.C., have to sign a waiver stating that they’ve been warned.
Sunni Sky's makes its Cold Sweat-flavor treats with milk, sugar, three kinds of pepper and two kinds of hot sauce. It's so spicy that just touching it makes your fingers feel hot, according to the News and Observer.
The waiver for the fiery mixture has dozens of signatures. Pregnant women and people with health problems are not supposed to eat it. Anyone younger than 18 needs the consent of a guardian.
The shop's owner, Scott Wilson, started out experimenting with jalapenos in vanilla ice cream to appeal to Hispanic customers. That didn't catch on, but Wilson kept going and worked his way up to Cold Sweat.
The final version of the fiery treat contains a blend of Dave's Insanity Hot Sauce and Blair's Megadeath Hot Sauce, a secret ingredient, chili peppers, habaneros and Thai chilis.
Among the first to try Cold Sweat was Justin Smith, a woodworker. The 22-year-old went to the restroom and vomited after a spoonful. But, he's had about five samples since, and wants to go for the record of 14 ounces in a sitting.
They're a couple towns over from me. They had a picture in the paper with a couple guys trying the flavor. Needless to say, the faces the guys were making didn't make me want to rush over there and try it.
I have friends that used to give me money to eat whole habanero peppers. It would be a mean and funny joke to give them that spicy ice cream after they had just eaten a habanero. I better shut up before someone does that to me.
