Gochujang Wing Sauce By President’s Choice Reviewed!

Gochujang Wing Sauce

I found out about Gochujang Wing Sauce (by President’s Choice) while going through Maxi’s Sauce section and decided to give it a try. The bottle of wing sauce cost me a little under $5 CAD.

Also when I had bought it, I was thinking that it would be a hot wing sauce but upon reading the label after reaching home I noticed that it mentioned that the sauce is actually sweet and spicy.

Gochujang is red chili paste popularly used in Korean cooking. Tasting the sauce, it reminded me of spicy ketchup a little bit, so I checked over the ingredients and this sauce does contain tomato.

I have never tasted Gochujang before but I noticed that when I looked up recipes online for Gochujang, they do not contain Tomato. So part of me feels that this sauce might not taste and feel like how Gochujang is made in Korea.

Gochujang Sweet and Spicy Wings

How I made my Gochujang wings

I coated the chicken wings with a small portion of the sauce and then put them in the air fryer for about 20 minutes, turning the sides halfway to make sure that both sides were cooked. Once that was done, I coated them again with some sauce.

Once they were done, I was quite happy with how they looked! My wings ended up with a golden brown color with some charred areas.

Gochujang Wing Sauce Review

Not only did my wings look good but they were delicious! I think they were quite flavorful, and the sweet/spice level is just perfect. This sauce would work out well for you if you don’t like it too spicy and it will also work well if you like spicy.

If you are looking for something to complement your wings, you could try mac and cheese or fries. You could also try using the Gochujang sauce for the fries instead of the regular ketchup sauce!

Costo Sushi Review: Is It Any Good?

The last time I got Sushi from Costco (Gatineau, QC), I wasn’t really impressed with it. There just seemed something wrong with it but I wanted to give it another try since I wanted to make sure that I just didn’t end up getting a wrong batch.

Salmon Deluxe Combo Sushi From Costco

This time I ended up getting the Salmon Deluxe Combo which contained a variety of sushi rolls that I wanted to try. Costco does have smaller and bigger sushi package, so you can choose depending on how many people are going to be eating.

Costco Sushi Pricing

I think the pricing of the Sushi is not that bad when you compared it with other stores like Walmart that sell Sushi. The price came around CDN$14.00 (not including taxes). It would definitely come out to be a bit cheaper than going to a Sushi restaurant in the city.

What’s Included

Here’s what all included in the Salmon Deluxe Sushi Combo!

  • 6 Salmon Avocado Roll
  • 5 Cucumber Hosomaki
  • 5 Spicy Salmon Rolls
  • 5 Alaska Rolls
  • Wasabi
  • Soy sauce

In total, my sushi combo package had 21 rolls which I think is more than sufficient for 2 people to share. The package also comes with Wasabi as well as Soy Sauce so you do not need to buy it separately from the store.

Costco Sushi Review

I ended up trying all the variety of rolls in my Sushi but found them underwhelming. The flavor was somewhat bland, the rice feels quite off and not in a good way.

I think part of the reason might be the fact that at Costco you are buying pre-made sushi from a fridge. The colder temperature makes it overall feel not fresh.

I must say though that the quantity for the price you are paying for Sushi is good.

Coscto Sushi Vs Other Stores

From all the grocery stores that I have visited so far, I think Costco Sushi is the one that has failed to impress me. I have found the Walmart Sushi to be slightly better than Costco Sushi while Sushi from Metro Plus has always exceeded my expectations.

Overall it’s not the worst sushi in my region, and it might be good to head to a proper sushi place rather than going to a store if you want to experience sushi especially for the first time!


While Costco is one of my favorite stores to go to and I love having hot dogs and wings at their Food Court, I don’t think I would be getting my Sushi from the Costco near me. I think I would just prefer to get my sushi from restaurants or other grocery stores in my region.

It’s hard for me to recommend people to try and get Costco Sushi. The price point is good but they do need a lot of improvement in their quality.

Something to note is that the quality of Costco Sushi might vary by location.

I Tried Pepper Palace’s Hot And Spicy Chicken Rub And Here Is My Review!

Not too long back, on my visit to the Pepper Palace in San Francisco, I ended up getting their Nashville Hot and Spicy Chicken dry rub. I finally got to try it out on the chicken wings this week!

All I had to do was sprinkle a little bit of the dry rub on the chicken wings, rub it with my fingers and I only let them marinade for about 15 minutes since I was quite hungry. Tossed them into the air fryer for about 20-25 minutes and voila they were cooked!

Pepper Palace Chicken Rub

I must say that this dry seasoning is prolly one of the better ones I have bought so far for chicken. It also works pretty well with steak, which I also ended up trying out with! My steak turned out to be quite hot and spicy!

This one does pack quite a bit of heat so try it out with a smaller amount first before putting more on your meat! If you are looking to gift someone dry rub, this would be a good one!

Main Ingredients: salt, sugar, garlic, black pepper, paprika, onion, habanero pepper, lemon oil, spices.

Cooking Chicken Wings With Cool Runnings Hot Sauce!

Cool Runnings has a Hot Chicken Wing Sauce that I only noticed recently while going through the international foods store near me. As per the claim on the bottle, the wing sauce is suitable for chicken or to be used as a dipping sauce.

I decided to cook my chicken wings using this sauce as the marinade! As per the bottle, the sauce is good for about 2 pounds of wings. I was going to make half of that so I used 1/4 of the sauce as a marinade and I was going to use 1/4 more to pour over the wings once they were cooked.

Cool Runnings Hot Chicken Wings Sauce!

While the instructions mention to marinade the wings for an hour, I didn’t have that much time and was quite hungry so I just marinated the wings for about 15 minutes and then I tossed them into the air fryer.

Marinated Chicken Wings in the Air Fryer!

It took the wings about 25 minutes to be perfectly cooked in my air fryer. I had to turn them around during this time to make sure that they were cooked properly. The wings appeared to be a little burnt but I later realized that was just because of the sauce.

Fried Chicken Wings

After that I poured over about 1/4 of the hot wings sauce over the wings and they were ready to be served. The wings looked really hot and spicy.

If you cannot tolerate much spice, what you could do is instead of pouring over the sauce on the wings, you could have some of it as a dipping sauce.

Adding more sauce to the wings

Trying out the Hot Wings sauce I felt that the sauce is not hot enough does have a bit of kick in it. The taste came out to be a mix of sweet and spicy, which is still enjoyable though. It might appeal to people who prefer to have only a bit of spice in their food.
