So, a week ago, we had a bit of a crazy schedule: we were doing this YouTube presentation thingy, and a few other YouTubers were there, including 양띵, Lia Marie Johnson, and Ann from How to Cook That. We already know YD a bit (and plan on shooting something with her soon), and we didn’t talk to Lia Marie much, but we did totally become BFFs with Ann and decided to shoot some videos together!
The first video we shot with her was a Korean Snack Tasting video. We got her to try some of the candies we ate in our Kpop Picture Puzzle test video, but also gave her some Korean pastries from Paris Baguette. We were curious how she’d find them. Since she’s the awesomest pastry chef in the world, would she be ok with the pastries we made her try? Check out the video below and you’ll see:
After that, we filmed our video with her, in which we ate some of the Korean treats she brought over for us. What’s awesome about our video with her is that we were a bit concerned that she’d have brought some of the stuff that we already ate in our first Australian Candy Tasting video, but she actually watched that video beforehand and brought us stuff that we didn’t try. That’s really awesome of her!
So, here we are trying some of the stuff she brought. We were genuinely confused about the musk sticks. Seriously. We made everyone in the studio try it, and nobody was a fan. Then we asked Nichola today and she said that she’s ok with them, and it’s utterly befuddling. I thought it might be like how Korean people don’t like root beer because it tastes like Korean stomach medicine, and so I understand the negative association that we wouldn’t have as Westerners, because we never had that medicine growing up. But Australians had soap! They have soap still, I hope! Unless Australian soap is made of something else, and so it doesn’t taste like how soap tastes. Quickly, you Aussies reading this now: eat some soap and tell me if it tastes like your musk sticks! Don’t ask questions: just do it! Report back ASAP! Pics or it didn’t happen :D
Also, whoa: those Tim Tam Slams are awesome. I didn’t think it’d work. When I heard about it, I thought that once I started sucking up the coffee it would bleed through the sides and not actually go up, but it did. Seriously awesome! But, still, I’m kind of wondering who came up with the idea? Something about it seems like such an abomination, like a burger made out of donuts. Sure: it’s delicious, but it’s so…decadent :D
Ann brought some other candies that we tasted on camera that we cut out of our final edit. You can check it out here if you’d like to see us eat what Koalas eat :D
Anyhow, I’d also suggest subscribing to How to Cook That’s channel because – wow – she makes totally amazing stuff, way better than the kinda stuff we make. She makes cakes that look like Instagram; I make powerballs that look like turds. And she’s just a lovely person overall. Had a great head on her shoulders, was able to talk deeply about stuff, and was just an overall pleasure to hang out with. Hopefully we can be in one of her cake making videos if we ever come to Australia. I’ll fight her kids for one of her cakes. Ohhh…I mean: hey Ann, if you’re reading this, I won’t fight your kids. It was a joke! I’ll compete with your kids in a friendly competition! Like, hide and go seek! They’ll go hide, and I’ll eat your cakes.
