Show 14: The Try This At Home Show 2019 Year in Review

1/17/2020

Our friend Emily Baker is the “Crazy Flippin Mom” on Instagram, and she figured out that when a candy goes out of production, storing some for sale later can be very lucrative. We tried the old and new Butterfingers with her on a show that we called “The Butterfinger Hustle.” Jeff Kolodzinski is fishing’s “Marathon Man.” We broke into one of Take Me Fishing’s “Snackle Boxes” while we heard about how he set the world record for the most fish caught in 24 hours. Dadbod Snacks is one of the...

Show 13: Hannah Stonehouse Hudson & The Life Is Short Movement

Ice fishing has gotten going in this weird winter, it seems to freeze / thaw / freeze, but we’d just caught a few fish through the backyard pond when we recorded this show. Teeg’s son Goody had his first time on the ice when he was two years old – it didn’t go great, but he’s warmed up to it since. It’s the holidays, so we’re trying holiday snacks – all candy this time around. Hannah lives in Milwaukee but she’s back from St. Paul and the St. Paul Ice Show, Fargo and Devil’s Lake with Wolf...

Show 12: The Bearded Border’s Holiday Snacks

Teeg & Tim are live this week at “The Space,” a co-working space for creatives in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Ryan’s back in Iowa, Michelle’s at her home studio in Colorado. Ryan’s beard is looking especially on point this week, but it’s no match for Tim’s. Tim comes from a long line of beard growers. Everybody called his grandfather “Curly,” for his big barbell moustache – and he got the wax at Sally Beauty Supply, which is a funny image. Tim’s daughters get in on the beard fun with...

Show: 11 Brian Miller’s Trip Around the World

Ryan’s back in Iowa, and we got a report on Brian’s leftover candy from the last time he was on the show. He used those Japanese Crème Corns for teenagers with lame costumes on Halloween, and it’s a miracle his house didn’t get egged. Teeg and Brian try to find the perfect word for how their wives look at them; it’s something like frustrated befuddlement. Teeg scored big on some close-dated ribs, and it went bad when he opened them. Much to his families horror - and his amusement. Candy...

Show 10: Coffee Co-Mission and the secrets of Fair Trade

Have we ever thought about where our candy comes from? Yes – Teeg has – but probably hasn’t valued it highly enough. Our pal Katie B sent a photo of the super-discount cart! Candy Corn talk: Teeg tried to surprise his wife, Amy, with generic “Harvest Corn” and she wasn’t having it. Michelle got some winning post-halloween discount Candy Corn. Ryan is winning with a mix of candy corn and peanuts – yum. Our guest this week – Daniel Ehrlich – is vegan. He’s at the heart of making change in...

For years, Teeg has produced all kinds of events all over the United States. This week, we bring in a group of his former co-workers who know him, share his love for candy, and have pretty funny takes on just about everything. Ryan joins us this week from the Florida Keys, where Fantasy Fest is going on – but Ryan’s not participating, for good reason. It’s kind of a clothing-optional kind of thing. In Colorado, it may be just mid-October, but Michelle is expecting a foot of snow. We’re...

Show 08: Dadbod Snacks and his worldwide reveal

Ryan’s in Boston, and the @earlysnowbirds are making their way to the Florida keys, trying to escape rainy weather in the Northeast. Teeg & Ryan both share stories about weird Airbnb experiences – Michelle’s never stayed in one. Nobody has ever seen @DadbodSnacks face – he’s self described as “small potatoes” in the candy game, so he starts the live feed on Facebook Live wearing a mask. We start with Ryan’s envelopes, and the first treat in the mix was the T’frutti Gummy Burger, Gummy Hot...

Show 07: Fishing’s Marathon Man and a “Snackle Box.”

This week’s show comes from Teeg’s visit to ICAST and a friend from @takemefishing Ryan and Jess @earlysnowbirds got a smaller RV – we cover life in a smaller RV, but for this week’s show, they got a hotel – that high speed wifi sure is nice! So is a hot shower. Jeff Kolodzinski isn’t our first Try This At Home Show world record holder! But he *is* the first guy who’s joined us from a boat. Kolo is a world record holder for the most fish caught in 24 hours. He joined the U.S. National...

Ryan is in Canada, and if you aren’t following his amazing nomadic life, you should - @earlysnowbirds on Instagram. And speaking of Canada, we’ve probably never had more tech troubles than we did in this show. Emily Baker is the @CrazyFlippinMom and she “flips” everything from women’s clothes (a big seller) to discontinued cleaning products (surprisingly lucrative). You can get too much going on in the “reseller” world, and she actually had a high and low this year: kicked off of eBay, but...

In today’s show: Vallomilk - it’s like if you replace the peanut butter in a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup with liquified marshmallow. Cool backstory on this depression-era invention that’s still around, beloved in Kansas. Chick O Stick brings back happy memories for Teeg, but it’s just confusing to the others. Brian puts everyone at ease about them being expired because “they don’t actually contain chicken.” Did you know that Butterfinger changed their formula? We gotta get @CrazyFlippinMom...

In today’s show: It’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup week; we invited the whole Try This Tribe to get a package before this week’s show to try these together during the Facebook Live recording of the podcast. We discuss the release of Krispy Kreme’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup donut Ryan is on a Hot Air Balloon crew, and he’s recently returned from the National Balloon Classic. What’s it like to be in a Hot Air Balloon, and how do you land those things? #BucketList M&M’s is doing a series of...

In today’s show: Eillien’s Butterscotch Discs - the official candy of little old ladies in church. The try-ers agree that society might be aging out of the butterscotch candy - Ryan got these at a small town hardware store. All agree: these are comforting candy. Teeg & Amy are celebrating 19 years of wedded bliss. Amy’s the Custom Coloring Mom, she’s making ‘road trip bundles’ for summer where she makes five little sheets that tells the story of the family’s vacation, and the kids can...

In today’s show: We do *not* try Dude, Sweet chocolate “Crack in a Box” chocolate bark, Nanette’s gift chocolate for Teeg - we save that for another day. Nanette & Matthew worry about the amount of sugar shock they’ll encounter from this much sugar entering their low-sugar diet. Hershey’s Cookie Crunch - an awful lot like Twix with nuts. Nanette said, “not so much,” but Matthew was licking the wrapper and Teeg ate like a hungry muppet. Story break: Teeg saw that the TSA was bragging...

In today’s show: Jumbo Push Pops - spring loaded candy? This definitely looks dirty on camera. But it’s for kids. Ryan and Michelle dig NASCAR … Teeg is ambivalent to the auto racing. Let’s just say, he’s not a Mountain Dew drinker. But it’s hard not to love fast cars going braaap. Taking delight in horrible candy - like wax lips. Brian describes the dark corner of a convenience store (the place Teeg makes a beeline for). Knoppers - chocolate covered milk hazelnut wafer … the try-ers...

In today’s show: The Candy Hangover, how you feel a day after eating too much candy (where we resolve to send one another some not-candy snack in future envelopes) Mike & Ike – do you combine flavors to make your own cocktail? Grape is a gross candy flavor, if we’re being honest (so says Teeg – Ryan likes it). No grape tastes like grape candy – and while it’s true that banana candy and watermelon candy don’t taste like bananas or watermelons, they’re at least pleasant tastes. The Sour...
