      I feel like he rated the last Dab alittle low but the one he rated number one is really that good

      @cbockiii The overwhelming consensus seems to be that da bomb tastes like battery acid and not for human consumption, so I'm curious what personality it has?

      Food lyrics in hip-hop? this is gonna be stuck in my head all day now lol

      "Thinking about the last time I split your wishbone
      A man could only wish you do the same 'til he get home
      Fat chance, at least he get snacks
      That'd have to do 'til a brother get back
      Until then smack One-Eyed Jack
      And hope one of his peoples can hook him with a tri-pack
      That's three different flavors
      Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry wafers"

          10:45 Alton gets depressed, leaves the store and makes an adult working minimum wage to clean up his mess.

            It good to see when they have food "experts" on ie Alton brown, Rachel Ray, or gordan Ramsay and they all say good things about the hot ones home sauces

                            I always thought Alton Brown was leaning towards annoying, but this really changed my mind. He's a cool, witty, funny dude. This interview was one of my favorites on Hot Ones!!!

                                This is always such a good episode to come back and watch. Alton Brown would be a great guest to do a second dab.

                                      Alton is a beast. He's so focused on the taste and ingredients that he's not even affected by the spice

                                              Years ago I wanna say 2014 my brother and I found Da Bomb at some flea market in the middle of nowhere in Eastern Washington. We loved testing hot sauces when we were kids and I’ve got to say not only was it a pain to eat, but the taste itself was unbearable. Hot beyond imagination and disgusting.
