Watch: Jason Terry had bad reaction to ‘The Choco Challenge’
A new social media movement called “The Choco Challenge” has gained popularity in recent weeks, and the idea is to eat a piece of chocolate created by the hot sauce company Fuego Box that contains a dangerously hot pepper. If you want to know how difficult the chocolate is to eat, just ask Jason Terry.
Terry decided to take the challenge during the NBA on TNT broadcast Thursday night. It did not go well.

We’d say Terry probably regrets eating the chocolate, but the idea behind the challenge is to raise awareness for prostate cancer research. Fuego Box is donating $5 to the Prostate Cancer Foundation for every insanely spicy mini chocolate bar that is purchased, and as of Friday morning they had raised nearly $50,000.
We’ve seen some weird things happen with the NBA on TNT crew when it comes to food, but no one has ever ended up in pain the way Terry did. Kudos to him for taking the hit for a good cause.
