A cafe in Scotland is serving an icecream so dangerous customers have to sign a legal waiver before eating it.

Glasgow's Aldwych Cafe calls it "Respiro del Diavolo", or "Breath of the Devil", and it is selling it for Valentine's Day.

The deadly concoction is 500 times hotter than Tabasco sauce, and measures a tongue-blistering 1,569,300 SHU on the Scoville scale.

Customers have to be 18 or older to order it and need to sign a legal waiver acknowledging eating the icecream carries "a risk of personal injury, illness and possible loss of life".

The brother of the cafe owner says the icecream started in Italy and is a hit with men aiming to improve their virility.

"A lot of Italian guys go and have a romantic evening with their girlfriends or wives and they will have some this icecream because it is a well-known fact that chilli is an aphrodisiac and it is nice with a glass of wine bubbling in your mouth," he told Metro UK.

"So we will sell it here until just after Valentine's Day. People should come try it."
