The Atomic Fallout Burger lives up to its name, as it is so spicy, patrons looking to indulge in the super-hot burger must sign waivers and wear protective gloves while eating it.
The Atomic Fallout Burger contains two of the world’s hottest chillies and a sauce that registered a volcanic 1 million on the Scoville scale.
Chefs at Atomic Burger in the UK used two of the world’s hottest chillies to create it, the Naga Bhut Jolokia, also known as the Ghost Chilli, and the Scotch Bonnet.
In addition to the spiciness, the sheer scale and gluttonous nature of the burger are absurd, as the buns are two deep fried pizza slices.
The Atomic Fallout Burger also contains 18 oz of minced beef 18 oz of cheese, and is served up with a triple portion of chilli fries.
The Fallout Challenge asks patrons to finish the $32 meal in under an hour, a feat that only ten percent of the 500 participants so far have completed.
Just one in ten of the 500 people who’ve taken the challenge have completed it so far, with Mr Bunce admitting he could only manage a quarter of the burger.
“We did a four-week special of the Fallout Challenge, but after the special came to an end we had so many people asking to do it, it ended up becoming a permanent fixture on our menu,” said co-owner Martin Bunce, who, along with fellow co-owner James Reilly, will continue to serve the fiery burger.
“The sauce in the burger contains a variety of chillies including the Ghost Chilli and the Scotch Bonnet. But what gives the sauce a real kick is the Ghost Chilli extract which registers at 4.2 million Scoville units.
“What makes our challenge different is it’s not just ridiculously hot but it’s big too.
“I’m quite a chilli head, I enjoy extreme heat but even I only managed about a quarter of the burger.”
Despite being from the UK, the Atomic Fallout Burger sounds as American as anything.
