Ho! Ho! Hot! Sriracha Candy Canes!

Sriracha Candy Canes

Somehow, all of the television commercial-makers, store display-makers and aisle filler-uppers decided that it was time for Christmas. It came down upon us suddenly and the now-ubiquitous red and green holiday decor is everywhere.

Coincidentally, Sriracha is now everywhere too.

It was only a matter of time, but now we have Sriracha Candy Canes. The real question is how it took so long for this to happen. With even Subway getting in on the Sriracha craze with their chicken or steak melt sandwiches, it’s a good bet there is more Sriracha-flavored craziness to come. Which of course is a good thing. The delicious and spicy condiment deserves all the taste buds it can get.

Rumor even has it that a certain long-time hot sauce maker that too has iconic bottles (hint: they use tabasco peppers) is planning a Sriracha style hotsauce. Ho! Ho! Hot!

Hot Pot learns a pizza lesson


All cookware should come in 2-in-1 form. What has worked so well for pizza toppings can easily be incorporated into other dishes. Take for example, this 2-in-1 Hot Pot (11-in.) by Tayama. Perfectly designed with a slightly off-center divider (one flavor is bound to be more popular), the hot pot makes it easy for diners to not only choose their own meats and vegetables, but what to dip them into too.

With one side filled with a spicy stock (the larger side of course), and the other not so spicy, eaters are given a choice aimed to please particular palates. Be careful which side you fill up with the good stuff though; you don’t want to be left with an abundance of anchovy-ham-pineapple stew.
