Our Ghost Peppers, also known as Naga Jolokia and Bhut Jolokia, come directly to us from the source in Nagaland, India - the only place that you can find true Ghost Peppers. Our Ghost Peppers pods pack comes in a professionally packaged and sealed, resealable pouch stuffed with 30-40 premium whole dried Ghost Peppers per ounce.

Can you die from eating a Ghost Pepper?
While anything is possible, the general answer to this question is no. You could die if you had a serve allergic reaction, choked on the pepper, or overreact mentally so much that it causes you to have a medical condition such as a heart attack. Other than that you would have to consume at least 3 lbs. of Ghost Peppers to even ingest a dangerous amount of capsaicin, what gives peppers heat, and it is highly unlikely you would ever get close to eating that amount without having an upset belly where your body rejects the pepper preventing you from consuming more.
