By Jasmin Sun

Nothing says “festive” to me more than pumpkin.  Especially when scented with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, it’s the quintessential holiday fragrance. Sure, the veggie might be more appropriate for Thanksgiving, but bake it into a muffin with chocolate chips and you have a delicious snack or on-the-go breakfast fit for any day of the year.

The sensation of tasting great food is a bit like falling in love — at least the kind of love my brain romanticizes about.  When you take a bite of something delicious, a smile spreads across your lips and suddenly you’re overwhelmed with an urge to gush about how amazing your mouthful of food is.  You could totally compare that to the whole shouting-your-love-from-the-rooftops thing.  Kind of.  I recently experienced such “food love” last night at Odd Duck Farm to Trailer, and I want to shout about it a bit on this blog.

Juan in a Million has been featured on the show “Man vs. Food”. The host faced the Don Juan Challenge. In order to win, he had to eat 8 Don Juan Tacos, and set the new record. In one of the rare losses for the host, he didn’t even come close, eating 4.

So I had to at least try it.
