    Your walk-in should *not* be at 41 degrees. That is technically temperature danger zone... it should be maximum 40... but idealy, 33-39 degrees.

    I'm not at all interested in cooking. But I like watching Claire do these name brand snacks and candies. Here is why I think Claire is probably one of the best chefs in the industry is due to the fact while she may struggle with these things in the beginning but by the end of the video she is usually victorious. And I have a feeling that this type of video is "clickbait" to get people like me to watch and maybe watch other content on the channel. And seriously, would you go to a five star restaurant in NYC and request the chef make his or her own version of a Milky Way bar (or other favorite snack)? You'd most likely get laughed out of the place. That being said, I do enjoy the series and have watched other content on the channel. I haven't subscribed as of yet. I watch more photography/photoshop videos (photographer here) and dabble in tech. So my KGwork feed is more in line with my interests. Good video though. Great series. I'd much rather see content like this than the scripted drama of "reality" shows. TLC I'm looking at you.

    Wait, what apparently US milky way bars are what in Europe is sold as Mars. I was so confused about the caramel part for a bit. What we in Europe call Milky Way is 3 Musketeers in the US
