    Heads up to anyone who bought that DL hot sauce... Mine just exploded like a fucking bomb when I opened it. Got all over me and the kitchen, even in my eyes. Fuck, that hurt.

    That was a really fun 10 minutes.

    I vaguely remember stumbling into that line around 3:30-4 and when I got to the front the lady told me they were 25 bucks a piece. I laughed and said you're high. Give me a 4 pack of that shitty coffee. When she turned around to grab them. I said on second thought give me one. I don't know how terrible it is. If I like it I'll just buy more online. She told me nothing would be available online. Moral of this story is that coffee was terrible and I'm glad I only got suckered into one.

    Semi-reasonable since they were 2 for $15 at DLD. If you need one, lemme know.

    Also curious. Heard the cardamom is very strong. Which doesn't sound too bad to me honestly.

    I guess we could also blend cinnamon and soy sauce to get a general idea before opening the bottle

    I heard one of next year's variants will be called Kikkoman Shogun: Dark Lord blended with wasabi root and bonito flakes and aged in soy sauce barrels. Shit's gonna be so metal.

    Thats what I ended up with but haven't cracked mine yet. Seen surprisingly little feedback on most of the variants.
