      I like Claire's signature tasting move where she turns her head sideways, bites the food with left half of her teeth while quickly looking into the distance :)

                  Claire is a beautiful example of a non-feminist woman. The way she just sort of dances with interaction and conversation is endearing.

                            The only candy bars I like are Milky Way. And I’ve always been addicted to the Nougat part. Can’t wait to see how Claire gets that done...I always thought the nougat tasted malty, a bit like Ovaltine.

                                  Lmao, why is this so depressing? Lol love Claire, but why do I feel sad watching someone live out my culinary dreams? ... Also Rogue hair is hot.

                                      Here's a question for any budding candy makers in the comments.

                                      Would it be possible to make the nougat a little salty to complement the caramel? I imagine it would taste awesome.
                                      And could a little bit of almond in the chocolate also go well with a salted caramel combo?

                                        I think in some ways these are the most interesting. I don't really care about the attitude (you have a dream job for a certain set of people). I do love your process which is fascinating. Your process of working the problem (analysis, modification, and consolidation of each of the evolved elements) is great.

                                                This is so weird for me (aussie viewer). In Aus, a milky way is just nougat in chocolate and nothing else. What I see here in this episode is a Mars Bar. So weird

                                                                So product placement is definitely working. Also I love the show! Great job! Haha 😁😂
