Perhaps it was my years until the age of six developing my sweet tooth in the frigid cold of Montreal. Perhaps it was being thrust into the tropical wilds, intense flavours, bird and goat peppers everywhere. The Antidote takes these two obvious extremes and uses one to counter the other. This amazing pure concoction of fresh heavy cream and the world’s best organic dark Quebec maple syrup, and other organic sugars, produces the richest, smoothest, most seductive heat reducing pain relieving salve ever developed to soften the blow of over-extending one's pepper limits. Put it on your tongue; rub it on the back of your hand; your neck; wherever the pepper burn has got you, just lather it on and let it sit there as long as possible. The enzymes in the heavy cream destroy some of the capsaicin pods from found in the pepper oils. The sweetness has a calming reassuring effect, and the clean rich organic maple grabs and holds your attention.
The longer you can rest this delectable caramel on your tongue, the better its soothing properties work.
