It’s a Super-special-with-extra-cheese-and-sprinkles-double-dipped-chocolate-waffle-cone-special-McSpecialson Wonder Treasure Find episode!!! We’ve been getting a lot of amazing letters and packages from EYK fans around the world (and we’ve been saving all our letters and notes in a special folder so we can hover around them on those cold winter nights and feel warmer…hahahah does that sound weird? WELL I DON’T CARE!!! *runs away to find letters*)
Some of the fan mail we’ve received is candy from all around the world, but truthfully, we didn’t know what the candy would be like, so we decided to do taste the candy for the first time on camera. I can’t think of anything more of a wonderful treasure find than trying candy!!! Unless it’s Korean ginseng candy…which my (Martina) first vice principal used to always give me like a caring grandpa and wait around smiling until I opened it and ate it. I would smile kindly and happily eat it, but as soon as he left the room I would spilt it out into a paper and bury it in my trashcan like a squirrel burying a nut. He actually looked like my dad (if my dad was Korean) and he was the nicest guy who took care of me SO WELL, but that ginseng candy was like punishment…I mean, it’s GINSENG! Fresh ginseng, although really healthy for you, tastes the way a farm smells, and now you’ve decided to turn it into CANDY!? Who planned that?! Who needs to wash out their mouth with soap when you have that candy? It’s like, “EAT IT! EAAAAAAT IT!” “I don’t wanna, I’m sorry!!!! I’m so sorry! WAHHHHHH *gurrglee chew chew gurgle gag* WAHHHHH”
I digress. Again. How much coffee did I drink today? *bounces in chair, swings legs under table*
The point is we tried a bunch of interesting European candies that we had never seen before in our lives, and some of it was super delicious and some was like punishment, and we can’t decide if it was planned, like “Hahah Simon and Martina! No one in my country actually likes this, but this is payback for mocking my fav kpop band!” or if it was like, “This is a national love, and I wanted to share it.” If it is the later, then we’re really sorry for not liking all the candy, but we seriously love adventure and surprises, so it was AWESOME to try it all. It’s kind of like the time someone sent us Vegemite. It was….yeast-y…but EXCITING TO TRY!!! I think it is definitely made for a selective palate. Like coffee, wine, or ginseng candy. *shudders*
So, we’d LOVE LOVE to hear if you guise know these candies and what your reactions were to eating them. Did we eat them wrong? Should we have dissolved it in a glass of something first or eat it only on a full moon? Tell us a story!!!
And on that note, here are this week’s Bloopers, though it feels like everything we did was a blooper, and drawing the line between what makes the final cut and what doesn’t is a realllllly difficult choice.
