Mad Dog 357 Collector’s Edition Review
Mad Dog 357 Collector’s Edition – What a great concept. There’s a 357 bullet keychain as a gift with this bottle. What also comes with the bottle is a lengthy disclaimer and basically a contract saying you won’t hold the company responsible if you hurt yourself. That’s because Mad Dog 357 Collector’s Edition is 600,000 Scoville units on the Scoville heat index. It’s made with 6 million Scoville pepper extract. What that means is really quite simple — this is a weapon in the wrong hands. Really, you can seriously hurt yourself. I knew that was going to be the case before I even tried it, so I was prepared. I was prepared and I still hurt myself. Not bad, but enough to cause a short period of discomfort.
All I used was two drops. I put those two drops on a spoon and tasted it. I had bread and lime juice handy. The blister appeared shortly after contact. The burn was instantaneous. The bread and lime juice didn’t help.
There’s chile extract (I already told you where that measures on the Scoville heat index), habanero peppers (known for their heat), and 160,000 Scoville cayenne peppers (and that’s hot for a simple cayenne). Those are the pepper factors. Take a look at the combination and I believe you can see where the danger comes in.
Other ingredients include evaporated cane juice, garlic, and onion, none of which means anything. Those flavors are lost in the heat. Mad Dog 357 Collector’s Edition can be used, sure, but in such small quantities that it will take you a lifetime to go through the bottle. I wouldn’t recommend anyone seriously use this to flavor food.
What I do think, though, is that any heat lover should grab a bottle of Mad Dog 357 Collector’s Edition for his shelf. The bottle is cool, the bullet keychain rocks, and really, it’s an all-around neat thing to have.
If you do feel the need to try it, understand what you’re letting yourself in for. This isn’t going to be pleasant. It will hurt. It will burn and hurt beyond belief. It’s as simple as that. Keep it away from kids and anyone who doesn’t understand the sheer force of pepper extract, especially at this level of madness. It ain’t called Mad Dog 357 for nothing.
