  • Ugh I can't cook but I wish I worked here. Imagine someone like Zaynab just coming around with that cake and being like "Wanna slice?" Like the amount of things you'd get to try and eat

  • I’d just like to say that the choice to use single use bags instead of a reusable silicon tray or popsicle tray is 100% crazy on a planet literally dying of garbage and pollution…. Come on bon appetite, it’s 2022 there are zero excuses for this!

    D G 17/10/2022 am11:06
  • The lack of Brad recently has been horrible. Where are the new it’s alive’s? Literally the only thing worth watching here

  • I heard that dairy milk digests at a very different rate than melon. So combining them is bad for your gut. Coconut milk is a delicious alternative. And you guys add a lot of sugar! Fruit is already sweet, guys…a lighter hand maybe.
