YouTube: Canada (Part 1); Spicy Eggnog

It's been a while since I've done a YouTube blog post. Just been extremely busy with videos, meetups, and other work. This post will cover most of my Canada trip, but several videos remain in the queue to be uploaded, so stay tuned there!

Mmm...creamed horseradish!
I did another Fan Package last month with some spicy cotton candy. Be sure to check out Fluff It Up if you're in Tucson, AZ!

I finally released another protein bar video -- that I filmed over the summer. The s'mores protein bar from Clif Builders is not bad at all.

Archer Farms (basically a Target-exclusive brand) unveiled a Sriracha potato chip flavor. It may not have been the most accurate rendition of the ever-popular rooster sauce, but it was decent enough to get a thumbs up from me.

Naader Reda and I continued our Spice Wars episodes with a holiday version. I made my McDonald's eggnog shake a bit more "festive" and chugged it down. I admit that I suck at chugging shakes -- and my core body temperature probably dropped a couple degrees in the process.

I covered the next sauce in the Sweet Sunshine line of sauces. The Jamaican Jerk sauce was a huge hit and should be in many households.

The next video in my Afterburn series: the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Chocolate, grown by John Ford at Ford's Fiery Foods and Plants!

I may have only been in Canada for a few days, but I made them all count. Even the McDonald's menu was slightly different. First, the Big Breakfast Platter was not much different from a deconstructed Sausage McMuffin with Egg -- plus one of those floppy hash browns.

The After Eight Baked Pie is basically McDonald's crafting an after-dinner mint (and filling) into their usual baked pie form. It's quite good, although it would be a zillion times better if it was fried.

The Costco food courts in Canada also have a few different menu items. Being a poutine fanatic, I had to get my fix. Still not sure why such an item is not on the U.S. menu. I think it would do quite well in many parts of the country.

Finally, I subjected Phan and Josh (Latechow) to some creamed horseradish. I don't think they'll be wanting to do that again anytime soon.

Seriously, I hope my followers subscribe to their channel. Amazing video production and a lot of mouth-watering dishes.

Be sure to come back for the next YouTube update!
