Sriracha sauce, a spicy food condiment, has been in the news a lot lately, so naturally our managing editor and food writer Marshall King jumped at the chance to sample Sriracha-flavored candy canes.

Seeing that it's the Christmas season, Marshall and his giving spirit came up with the idea to have newsroom staff try them ... and record their reactions on a video camera and put them on YouTube.

Did the candy canes turn out to be a fiery treat or a taste bud dud? Regardless, the reactions are worth watching.
