Florida: Inferno Soup Challenge at Nitally's Thai Mex Cuisine

Located in St. Petersburg, Florida Nitally’s Thai Mex Cuisineis home to one of the country’s spiciest food competitions: The Inferno Soup Challenge. With rules that include “You must be of sound mind to compete,” this soup is no joke. Loaded with Ghost Peppers, (so hot that India has contemplated using them as weapons), this 48-ounce bowl of soup is filled with noodles, chicken, and vegetables. The prize is $800 if you can finish the entire bowl.
