Ghost peppers are notoriously spicy, even mixed with milk and made into ice cream. So if you want to try this concoction, you must sign a waiver at this ice cream shop.

The Ice Cream Store in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, is luring customers in to try an innovative, oxymoronic dessert — ghost pepper ice cream. It is made with African vanilla ice cream, strawberry sauce, several hot sauces, and ghost peppers.

Even if you just want to taste a sample of this spicy treat, you must sign a waiver. Only adults between the ages of 18 and 65 are allowed to eat it. Pregnant women, lactating mothers, and men with erectile dysfunction are prohibited from trying the ghost pepper ice cream.

Similarly, anyone with “heart ailments, vascular problems, respiratory problems, back problems, vision problems, high blood pressure, sinus conditions, digestive problems, circulation problems, immune problems, neurological problems, or problems with authority should not taste this product!” according to the waiver.

The ghost pepper ice cream has been around since 2012. The Ice Cream Store owner Chip Hearn also runs a hot sauce store called Peppers, so it is no surprise that he would create such a product.

And if this all sounds like it's too much, don't worry, the ice cream shop has other milder flavors.
