There are three things Trick loves more than anything else:
1) The Kids
2) Good food
It's taken him 42 years, but he's finally found a way to merge these loves into one satisfying business venture. He's up in his kitchen right now, cookin' up a storm with his specialty line of delicious, GMO-free, vegan-friendly spices, because kids deserve a healthy home-cooked meal with a spice that satisfies but won't “burn your butthole.”

Why Trick insists cooking is a woman's job when he himself loves to cook so much is beyond us, but some things can be forgiven when you're dealing with the man who wrote “Nann.”

Trick needs to raise funds for licensing, manufacturing, product development, hosting, web design, and all the complicated shit that goes down when you start a spice line, and that's where you come in. Just $10 buys you a
But Trick's announcement to take his spice game to the next level should come as no surprise to us. Miami New Times spoke with Trick all about his love of food and his plans for a restaurant back in April. Let's hope this is the beginning of what will become a long line of delicious insanity courtesy of the 305 Mayor.
