Tivoli uses chili to boost visitor figures

Amusement park offers range of chili peppers to try
Copenhagen’s famous amusement park Tivoli will be testing the strength of visitor’s taste buds on Sunday, when it offers up a range of chili peppers and tomatoes to try.
The tasting day on September 3 is in collaboration with horticulture firm Gartneri Toftegaard and will provide 40 chili varieties for guests to sample.
Among them is one of the spiciest in the world, the Carolina Reaper, generating formidable heat of up to 2.2 million Scoville Heat Units (SHU), far more than a jalapeno’s 5,000 SHU.
Among the tomatoes on offer will be a blue tomato and a dessert tomato. The event will take place in Tivoli’s Orangeriet, from 11:00. Entrance is free – with the purchase of a Tivoli ticket. To publicise the event, a video has been posted online of three of Tivoli’s youth guard chomping down on some habanero peppers. It can be seen here.
“Chili is a taste inducer in our food and it actually provides a feeling of satiety. Two thirds of the world’s population uses it every day and there are a lot of reasons why,” says Lene Tvedegaard, head of Gartneri Toftegaard.
