No More Cold Showers

Happy thursday everyone. Today I’d like to share with you a somewhat novelty inedible item I found.

Original Source’s Extreme Wake Up shower gel, with extracts of lemon and chilli. But no, not those practically deadly capsaicin concentrates, just unconcentrated extract of habanero heat and flavour. And not even a lot of those.

Jalapeño Jerky

Not that it’s actually that powerful of a heat but doesn’t it sound like a cheesy Sci-Fi Villain?

This one, however, is intended to improve your health, not end it like that mighty space emperor, and it looks to do so by combining the antibacterial properties of chilli and garlic with lemon juice’s vitamin c and a good deal of fresh herbs.
