Trader Joe’s Smoked Ghost Pepper Grinder

Trader Joe's smoked hot ghost pepper flakes grinder

So I got the Trader Joe’s Smoked Ghost Pepper Chili Flakes Grinder from Amazon to sprinkle on pizza, chicken, and where else I wanted some spice and heat.

I’m a die-hard pepper head and have been eating hot stuff since I was a kid. When I was 10 years old, my cousin (R.I.P.) turned me on to jalapenos and I got hooked.

We were at Holly Farms Chicken and he asked me if I ever tried jalapeno peppers. Now up to that point, the hottest I had was Louisiana hot sauce. In the South, we put hot sauce on everything. He bought 2 and gave me one.

Wow, the flavor was so intense and I loved the burn. I actually started buying them over candy when I had some spare change. Back then you could get them for .10 cents.

I’ve eaten other ghost pepper seasoning products, but this one is way better than the others.  This product also makes a great gift for those who can’t get enough heat.

I’ve graduated from jalapenos to ghost pepper products.  My favorite is Dave’s Ghost Pepper Sauce.
