Consett Popcorn Company has released what it claims is the hottest popcorn in the UK.

Psycho Corn

Psycho Corn is made with Bangladeshi Naga Jolokia chilli peppers, which have a scorching Scoville rating of over 1m.

Catherine Furze, co-founder of the Consett Popcorn Company, said: “Unlike some manufacturers who use flavourings extensively to provide a flavour kick, we only use totally authentic, kitchen-cupboard ingredients in our recipes.”

The product has earned the fledgling company a contract with snack and hot sauce producer Psycho Juice.

“The psycho juice team are famous for selling extremely strong spiced snacks and sauces and our challenge was to create popcorn mild enough to be edible but hot enough to appeal to their die-hard customers,” Furze added.

Blueberry Re’al

Re’al Cocktail Ingredients has added a new blueberry-flavoured variety to its Re’al range of fruit infused syrups.

Blueberry Re’al is made from Goldtraube Blueberries from the Pacific Northwest and can be added to cocktails, pancake mixes and desserts.

William Hinkebein, vice president of marketing at American Beverage Marketers, said: “The Re’al brand starts a new chapter in our rich history as the category leader in liquid cocktail mixers.

“We are known around the world for our Finest Call and Master of Mixes brands – the new Re’al line opens up new opportunities for our customers to create unforgettable fruit flavoured cocktails.”

The new range includes mango, peach, strawberry, raspberry, pumpkin, ginger and agave nectar varieties, individually priced £4.35 – £6.80.
