Okay, by show of hands, how many people out there have ever wanted to be the guy at the circus that sticks fire in his mouth without so much as flinching over and over again? Wow, so I’m not the only one. Though I cannot condone you try what I just mentioned above, you could come about as close as you could ever want by popping a few of Gimbals Lava Balls in your mouth and holding them there as long as you can. Oh God it burns!!!
These marble sized candies seem innocent enough, but once you actually bite into them it’s like someone let loose a flamethrower on your taste buds. I am a big fan of the atomic fireball jawbreakers, but these little hot bombs give the reigning king of mouth pain a run for its’ money. The candy is soft and easy to chew (similar to soft sour balls) but once in your mouth for 10 seconds you will notice the difference between a hard fire ball and a soft lava ball. The lava ball breaks down in your mouth and is coated with flamin hot candy; conversely, the hard atomic fireball can be moved around a bit with your tongue to avoid pain. The taste is pleasurable for sure but the pain that follows is not for the faint of heart! If you’re feeling brave, try a few yourself. Just be sure you’re within arms length of the nearest fire extinguisher.
