Hot Topic – Is ‘Burger Me’ Worthy Of Our Takeaway Insurance?!

Share This Post

The problem I have is that I like extremely hot food. You know, the sort which makes you want to take all your clothes off and lie in a star shape on your lounge carpet before writhing in agony thinking ‘Oh lordy that was the most fabulous curry / chilli I’ve ever had to date bless me!’ whilst having the family look at you like you’re some kind of self obsessed, internal self harming mental case and deciding you need sectioning for your own good. So I was very interested indeed when I read in the press about a takeaway in Hove, Brighton, called Burger Off which apparently serves the hottest burger known to man. It got me to thinking, would we do this guy’s takeaway insurance?

Well the answer to that is a categorical yes! I have been trying, so far unsuccessfully sadly, to contact Nick Gambodella, the owner of Burger Off, to offer an extra special discount on his takeaway insurance if I cannot finish his XXX burger!

Apparently only 20 odd people have successfully completed the task out of over 1,500 who have tried it. The burger is only available if you are over 18 years old and apparently you have to sign a disclaimer absolving him and his staff of all liability before attempting the feat! Now that’s my kind of challenge being the gastro masochistic nutter that I am, even if so far some of the combatants have had some adverse reactions such as stripping naked and begging for mercy. Also ambulances have had to be called on numerous occasions, including an incident whereby one poor chap who had a stomach ulcer had to stay in hospital for two days.

The Scoville scale, which is the measurement of the pungency, or spicy heat of chilli peppers, is measured in Scoville Heat Units (SHU), a function of capsaicin concentration. In Scoville’s method, a measured amount of alcohol extract of the capsaicin oil of the dried pepper is produced, after which a solution of sugar and water is added incrementally until the “heat” is just barely detectable; the degree of dilution gives its measure on the Scoville scale. Thus, a sweet pepper or a bell pepper, containing no capsaicin at all, has a Scoville rating of zero, meaning no heat is detectable. However a dorset naga chilli pepper, (something of which I am particularly fond) measures around the 900,000 SHU mark.

Apparently the XXX burger measures a cool 9.2million SHU which kind of sounds pretty hot indeed, and it is if you bear in mind that police issue pepper spray is less than half that!

I have researched some very interesting videos on Youtube which I think I had better not link to on here, of various victims of this fabulous burger, as some of the language in them, quite understandably, is rather horrific!

Nevertheless, always remember for a truly red hot deal on takeaway insurance, always come to The business insurance comparison site!

P.S. After having had a jolly good think about it, I’ve completely bottled the whole idea! However I would be prepared to give Burger Off a year of free insurance if that irritating little purple lipped food critic Oliver Peyton has a crack at it! Now there’s a challenge!
