I traveled all the way to Chicago to film a TikTok of myself eating a chamoy pickle with my sister.  Was it worth it?

My sister called me up the other day and asked if I wanted to be in a TikTok video with her trying some weird food.  I didn't even question it because it sounded fun!

Let me start by saying this: it was a very weird concoction.

With no idea what it was going to taste like, we went for it.  We filled the pickle with all sorts of candy and took a big ol' bite.

If my sister asked me to do another food taste test video, I'd probably say yes haha.  My only rule is no spicy foods - I don't want my mouth burning where I can't even enjoy the food!
