Alex “Moose” Perez Accepts Ghost Pepper Challenge At Back 9

DSC00513by Steven Doyle

The ghost pepper is said to be the very hottest naturally grown pepper known on the planet. Ringing in at warp factor nine, or up to 1,050,000 on the Scoville scale. In comparison, the jalapeno is a mere 2,500 on average. Weapons grade caspium starts at a 2,000,000 rating.  The ghost pepper is one mean pepper. In its native home of India, the pepper is called Bhot Jolokia, and is often used by natives to ward off elephant attacks. It is one bad ass pepper and should be feared.

Dallas resident and professional competitive eater Alex “Moose” Perez ignored these facts last evening when he accepted a special eating challenge that involved the ghost pepper. It was at the Addison pub Back 9 where he was offered the challenge of eating one whole pizza laced with a ghost pepper sauce. The challenge was to eat the entire $25 pizza and it would be his for no cost what-so-ever. He would join the ranks of dozens of people who have accepted the challenge, but only a single entry actually won. Moose would be number two.    Continue reading

Dear Whole Foods Market, Please Remove Non-Texas Wine From Your Texas Wine Display

whole foods addisonby Andrew Chalk

Walking around the new Whole Foods Market in Addison this weekend I came across a whole pallet of Texas wines. Or so it seemed. One of them was the wine below. It is the Dry Comal Creek Vineyard ‘Comal Red XI’ Red Wine. The front label points out that the winery is in New Braunfels, so you might think that this is a Texas wine. On the bottom right of the label is a star decal which says ‘featuring Texas-Style wines’. That also appears to indicate that this is a Texas wine. Continue reading
