The habanero peppers are mostly alleged to be unbearably hot, but Joel Friant, the creator of the Original Habanero Shaker begs to differ. He asserts that packed in a dry flakes packaging, all the wonderful flavors of the pepper can be felt; bringing on both the heat and the zest. So what is the history of the Habanero Shakers? Well, while in high school Joel Friant was introduced to habanero by a friend and he immediately developed an addiction for habanero. He later on took his desire for the Habanero chili pepper and decided to create the flavorsome pepper product in 1995. The Original Habanero Shakers were out of the market for several years but have now made a comeback due to widespread demand.
Without a doubt, there are other hot peppers in the market, but the Original Habanero Shaker takes pride in having the unique combination of being both very hot and full of flavor at the same time. Joe Friant reveals that he was motivated to create this product line of peppers based on the fact that he loves the Habanero Chile Pepper and at the time, there were no pure Habanero shakers in the market. All that was there seemed to be a mixture of habanero with either salt or some inexpensive spices. Since Joel Friant himself had experienced the flavorsome Habanero Chile pepper, he thought it would be a great idea to make it in a way that people may actually get to enjoy habanero in its pure form.
In the family of chili pepper, habanero ranks as one of the hottest making it a top contender in as far as health benefits associated with capsaicin is concerned. Capsaicin is the active component that produces the heat-like sensation in chili pepper. Joe Friant is enthusiastic about the spice trend that is in the market, since more people are starting to appreciate the taste of peppers.
