Sweat, tears, blurry vision, disorientation, discomfort and a general sense of regret is what you will see when you watch this video.
Foodists.ca recently pledged support to Aaron Smith from GoVoluntouring.com and his campaign to help save sea turtles in Costa Rica in the form of a rather unique challenge. Hot Sauce. That's right... Hot Sauce. Aaron agreed to drink a full cup of hot sauce in exchange for a financial donation. What Aaron didn't know when he accepted this challenge was that the hot sauce was being made by Vancouver restauranteur, Bill McCaig of Nicli Antica Pizzeria and Nicli's Next Door fame.
Drink hot sauce. Save sea turtles. That makes sense.
