(FOX News) - It’s a tale of fire and ice-- cream.
The Ice Cream Shop in Rehobeth Beach, Delaware is heating up summer with its Ghost Pepper Ice Cream, a dessert so hot that customers have to sign a waiver just to try it out.
The sweet confection starts out with the shop’s signature African vanilla ice cream, ribboned with strawberry sauce and flavored with mash made of several hot sauces and Ghost Peppers-- one of the world's hottest peppers, measuring in at 1 million Scoville units. (Tabasco sauce measure just 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville heat units.)
Owner Chip Hearn, who runs the 45-year-old boardwalk institution, is proud of all of his unusual creations but the Ghost Pepper is close to his heart since he also runs a hot sauce store called Peppers.
