Dangerous ice cream

Adults sign a permission slip to be allowed to eat this ice cream. It is extremely spicy. So saturated with spice, that it is 500 times hotter than Tabasco sauce. It is the most dangerous ice cream in the world. When you order it, the permission slip that comes with it says that you could be injured, fall ill, or even lose your life. Why would anyone put this in their mouth?! In Italy, apparently it is considered not only normal, but ROMANTIC to try this ice cream on a date with some wine. That is just scary. Things sure will be heating up, and not in a good way! What do you think? Does this sound like impending disaster, or would you give it a try?

@Katzab7 There are full of fake news online, The gelato was invented in Italy, centuries ago by the ancient Romans, but not this one with chili peppers. We have a chocolate ice cream with chili pepper, but it's not very spicy, just a little bit and even ancient Maya knew that chocolate pairs well with red chili pepper. I have searched online, this ice cream has been created by The Aldwych Café in Glasgow UK. They wanted to give an Italian name "Respiro del Diavolo" (Devil's breath), but it's not Italian.

@LadyDuck That's very interesting and informative, thank you! Seems like a lot of countries and and even ancient civilizations have their own versions of spicy foods, so it's hard to pinpoint who really came up with what. And Devil's Breath would've been a great name for it. Haha.
I've heard about this flavor of ice cream. Although I love to eat spicy food, I still think that I could not handle spicy ice cream. I mean, the spicy flavor must not be associated with anything sweet (except, of course with spicy chocolate but not too much). Spicy + savory is the better combination.
If it's that dangerous then I won't eat it. @simplyD's province have restaurants that serve chili ice cream. I hope she gets to read this and I want to know if she'll ever dare to eat this ice cream coz I won't.
