You Have To Sign A Waiver To Eat The Hottest Sauce At This Chicken Joint Near Tampa

Made with the hottest pepper in the world: The Carolina Reaper!
Joella's Hot Chicken Requires You To Sign A Waiver To Try Their Hottest Carolina Reaper Sauce

As far as spicy things go you either love it, hate it, or REALLY love it; so much so that you might even be willing to sign a waiver just to eat it. For those with tongues of steel wanting to test their might, Joella's Hot Chicken's hottest sauce is definitely waiver worthy.

Made with a couple of the world's hottest peppers, the Carolina Reaper & Ghost Chilis, Joella's "Fire-In-Da-Hole" sauce will torch your mouth, with only the bravest making it through without shedding a tear. With the Carolina Reaper topping out at 2.2 MILLION Scoville Heat Units on the heat scale & the Ghost Chili at 1 million SHU , it's sure to make you sweat at the very least.

They mean business when they say it's waiver worthy, requiring your signature for you to even try it. Many people have even taken to trying the Fire-In-Da-Hole challenge, that calls for fire-breathing chickens to finish 2 jumbo tenders drenched in the sauce.

If you happen to have a more mild palette and don't think you'll be taking this challenge, Joella's has 5 other sauces to choose from. If you like little to no spice you might want to opt for the sweeter "Southern" or "Spiked Honey" sauces, while those who like a little kick without taking it too far would be better suited for "Ella's Fave" or the "Tweener".

Whether you like your chicken in sandwich form, strips, wings, or served with a waffle, Joella's has you covered. You can pair your chicken with a side of fries, or get all that southern comfort food you've been craving with some gravy covered taters, collard greens, mac n' cheese, slaw, salads & more.

They even have sweets including boozy spiked slushies, Nutella filled poppers, banana puddin', & multiple variations of pie in a jar — and you get to keep the jar.
