Burger Off is a British take away shop that requires customers to be 18 or older in order to purchase a burger. That may sound weird but the burgers they sell are so hot that the owner actually asks customers to sign a waiver before eating his product. The XXX burger is so unbelievably hot and spicy that of all the 3,000 people who have attempted to eat it, a mere 59 managed to finish it. What is more, several people were actually taken to hospital after just a few bites of the ‘evil’ burger.
The main ingredient in the XXX burger is a spicy sauce made of Piri Piri chili concentrate. A great amount of the people attempting to consume the burger receive an anaphylactic shock which is basically a serious allergic reaction that can have fatal outcome. Nick Gambardella, the owner of Burger Off, explains that he was amazed so many people would want to try his hot burgers. Having in mind that eating them is an utter torture, the 55-year-old man assumes that most people take it as a challenge. However, he likes to point out that everybody is consuming the XXX burgers at their own risk as people are well aware what they are dealing with.
