Back in college we used to do shots of wasabi as a sort of dare. These days we don’t need a lubricated party to blow our sinuses with an overdose of Japanese horseradish. All we need is some wasabi gum—it offers that spicy kick to the nose in chewable form. Sadly, we don’t know of any sushi flavored gum but hold out hope of finding some.
