2853. The Jalapeno
The Jalapeno is a high-damage explosive that can clear an entire lane of zombies and even melt Zomboni's ice.
Its shape and name are based on the chilli pepper, valued for its spicy flavor. It will make an instant kill on most zombies.
Jalapenos can be good last-minute saves, since they can be planted behind an incoming wave, clearing the entire lane.

Also, since a Jalapeno will melt ice as well as destroy a Zomboni and ladders, it makes a great addition to any levels with them; this is why Jalapenos are of great help in the Mini-game Bobsled Bonanza. It takes two Jalapenos to kill a Gargantuar, so keep that in mind. You can also use a Jalapeno on a Gargantuar when it throws its Imp, as it will be destroyed along with the Gargantuar.
When dealing with Dr. Zomboss in the boss battle, the Jalapeno will destroy incoming snowballs he sends, as well as do some damage to his Zombot (if his head is shown).
Note, however, that Jalapenos also unfreeze any zombies that can survive it, (Gargantuars, Giga-Gargantuars and Dr. Zomboss) in the same manner as Torchwood fire.
