This Valentine's Day, make the love of your life tingle in ways you'd never even imagined by setting their heart and mouth on literal fire.

Edible Arrangements is now officially selling its "Love on Fire" box, guaranteed to spice up your Valentine's Day by a factor of roughly 1 million Scoville Heat Units — making it an aggressively perfect gift for both the lover and the fighter in your life.

Each limited-edition gift set comes with six chocolate-dipped strawberries — which are generously sprinkled with ghost pepper flakes — and retails for $19.99 at select stores nationwide.

According to the company, ghost peppers, which are over 100 times hotter than a jalapeño and 400 times hotter than tabasco sauce, can trigger your brain to release endorphins and dopamine.

"Combined, these chemicals create a euphoria similar to falling in love," a press release for the product states.

"With Valentine’s Day being one of our most popular holidays, we wanted to kick it up a notch this year with our 'Love on Fire’ box,'" said Scott Wakeman, Executive VP of Marketing at Edible Arrangements. "We're excited to bring together the spiciness of the ghost pepper alongside the sweetness of our fresh fruit to create a unique twist and give our customers a truly HOT gift this Valentine's Day."

Just in case that all sounds a little too caliente for your liking, Edible Arrangements is also offering a less hot, but still spicy "Burning Love Bouquet," which features semisweet-dipped strawberries topped with spicy chipotle chili flakes alongside juicy pineapple hearts and grapes.
