The ‘Roo Hot, Roo Spicy’ Challenge is in celebration of International Hot and Spicy Food Day the 16th of January.

The dish is so spicy customers MUST sign a waiver to confirm they have ambulance cover before they can order it!

Deliveroo has teamed up with over 20 restaurants around Australia to offer a super limited-edition dish using the world’s hottest sauce!

Across the weekend, brave hotheads can order a devilishly-hot dish that has been carefully crafted with the infamous Carolina Reaper for just $6.66.

Deliveroo sourced the Reaper Squeezins Sauce directly from Ed Currie AKA Smokin’ Ed, inventor of the Carolina Reaper.

With 2.2 MILLION Scoville heat units (SHU), the Reaper holds the Guinness World Record for Hottest Chili Pepper in the world.

For comparison, a jalapeño’s range tops out at a measly 8,000 SHU, and a classic Tabasco sauce is just 5,000 SHU!


How hot is it?

Carolina Reaper®- 2.2 Million Scovilles

Habanero – 350,000 Scovilles

Tabasco (pepper) – 50,000 Scovilles

Jalapeno – 8,000 Scovilles

Capsicum/Bell Pepper – 0 Scovilles


Such is the kick from the dish, Deliveroo is requiring customers to sign a waiver confirming they have ambulance cover before they are permitted to place an order!
