    Can we please have a mars bar? I think the nougat might be interesting and it’s always fun to use chocolate! Mars are perfectly complicated and are everything the BA audience wants.

    Peeps are not made for gourmet cooks, there made for everyday people to be frank, and I know this is all rude but if she can't taste it don't rate it. And also I'm sorry to everyone who finds this rude I do know different people have different taste but I found that she was tossing off are own taste😖🙁😞😐

    Lol honestly I wasn't really paying too much attention to the video (because I have it sitting on the table to listen to while I'm eating lol) but when I saw the camera zoom in on Brad in the background I saw he had some weird machine that was not usually in a kitchen, and then I saw it was a compound bow and then I started to actually pay attention lol. Then when he said "Oh you won't be able to pull back on this" I was like nooo let her try dude and then he said it was "You can't pull back 70lbs" I was like oh damn probably not cause I mean I've been practicing archery since I was 14 and started at barely 25-30lbs and even 7 years later I'm only at 45-50lbs, but then again I exclusively only shoot recurves and sometimes longbows, I don't like compounds, I see them mostly only good for competitions and hunting which I participate in neither. But I'm glad he at least let her try to pull it back 😂
    Anyways, it was an interesting video because although I wasn't watching it that closely until that point, I was listening while making my salad and as someone who hates peeps (even when I was a kid I hated them because they're literally just all sugar and no flavors even the flavored ones taste the same), but I would definitely try yours!!!
