I do not want to confuse you by the title because there are no pickles reviewed on this video. This is about the ghost pepper, the bhut jolokia. Mickey of Mickle’s Pickles was one of those rare people that you look forward to meeting at these hot sauce events. He charms you with really bad puns, some old and some new. In the end, you can not help but laugh and come back for more. If you stay too long, he will go into repeat mode like a teddy bear with a voice pull string. Yet, if you walk away, you just might miss another gem.
At the NOLA Hot Sauce & Gourmet Show, I was delighted by the sweet pickles at the Mickle’s Pickles booth. They have several heat levels. They have Ghost pickles with the pieces of bhut jolokia mixed in with the pickling. Those pickles gave a nice heat level, but nothing too serious unless you got a piece of ghost pepper with your pickle. Then there was the Near Death experience, which are sliced jalapenos in the same ghost pepper pickling, and then the Death experience which is simply ghost pepper slices in the pickle juice.
In this video, you will see me eat the Mickle’s Pickles Near Death and the Death offerings. While I was burning up, we had an innocent bystander step up to the plate to try Mickle’s Pickles Death. So you will get 2 sacrificial lambs for your video entertainment. Enjoy our pain!
