According to the Next Web, 10^32K hot sauce contains a blend of the Carolina Reaper (a hybrid between the Ghost pepper and red habanero) and the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper.

To protect the hot sauce, the Next Web writes that 10^32 Kelvin is packaged in a tube made with "silicon carbide and nickel­-based superalloys, or what the company describes as materials used in jet engine manufacturing." But it's not all for show and weight: the material helps preserve the heat and taste of the sauce by preventing oxidization.

With all that said, GE only produced one thousand bottles of 10^32K, which all sold out. However, you can try your luck in a sweepstakes to win a bottle. Should you win, you'll be able to say the following with conviction (and probably a numbed tongue):
