The inaugural Siricha Challenge
The kind of question that's only born in the late hours of a coding binge: Does Siricha make everything taste better?
After a quick run to Jewel for supplies, the order of the challengers was set:
When the random number is 42, you know it's going to be a good day.
First up was Scott, who chose mango, which seemed like a safe choice:
And a terrible start to our plan.
Dan was next. not only making a brave choice with applesauce, but saturating it:
"It has the same effect as Cinnamon. I'd eat it again, but with less Siricha"
Next was Shaun, with a chocolate-covered, creme filled donut:
"This is so good!"
Easily the best food of the challenge, Shaun went back for seconds:
Betsy crashed our tech-only party to try the mango/Siricha combo:
I was next, and I had been eyeing the yogurt with Oreo:
It tasted like an Indian dessert. Really, really good.
Down to the dregs, Isaac went for the generic frosted wheat cereal:
It's like I'm making sushi
"Crunchy with a curious mix of satisfying sweetness and arousing spice."
And finally, fittingly, our newest techie, AJ, went last, stuck with the dreaded "Gel" cup:
"Are you sure you took the plastic film off?"
"No. No. No."
The takeaway? Siricha tastes good on anything that doesn't contain fruit. Tell your friends.
