  • - Only a pregnant woman would like this.

  • - Baby wants Snickers and mustard!

  • - If this baby pops out now because it gets mad at me...

  • - [Sarah] You feed them through this hole.

  • - Well, I'll be happy, 'cause then the baby's out.

  • (Sarah murmurs playfully)

  • (upbeat music)

  • - Hi, I'm Sarah.

  • I'm a video producer with Buzzfeed and I'm pregnant.

  • I've asked my pregnant coworker, Cheska...

  • - Hey, I'm Cheska, and I'm in my third trimester.

  • - To try weird pregnancy cravings

  • that we found on the internet.

  • Thanks internet.

  • - Ever since I got pregnant,

  • I have thought about food differently,

  • only because I'm just paranoid about

  • what to eat and what not to eat.

  • Sushi's not safe for pregnant women.

  • I miss sushi a lot, actually.

  • The first... (groans)

  • - When you're pregnant, it's almost like every meal,

  • you're at a Michelin star restaurant, okay?

  • Food tastes that good.

  • So I'm really interested to see

  • what these pregnancy cravings are.

  • - I've heard of pickles and peanut butter,

  • but I'm not too familiar with odd cravings,

  • so I don't know.

  • - Before Cheska and I dig in,

  • we should talk to BuzzFeed's preeminent mom

  • and former pregnant person Hannah Williams.

  • - Hi, I'm Hannah, and if you've seen any of my videos,

  • you might have seen me make my family

  • eat my weird pregnancy cravings, and it was so much fun.

  • Some of the weirdest cravings I've ever had

  • were raw meat and raw dough.

  • I still don't understand why.

  • But there are some foods

  • that I did have when I was pregnant

  • that opened my eyes to stuff that I like to eat.

  • - I'm excited to try food. I'm just excited to eat.

  • All right, let's do this.

  • (hands slap)

  • Sauerkraut and pizza.

  • I'm looking forward to this.

  • - This isn't something I would choose,

  • but who knows, maybe I'll like it.

  • - Sauerkraut is good on savory things.

  • Pizza is savory.

  • (murmurs approvingly) Yeah, this is good.

  • - It's not nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

  • - It's cheesy.

  • It has a little bit of acidity from the sauerkraut.

  • - It reminds me of sausage on pizza,

  • and that's something I would eat, so...

  • - It has everything.

  • - Since I think I'd actually eat it, I've got to give this

  • an eight out of ten. - Ten out of ten.

  • I feel like this should be a thing.

  • I feel like this shouldn't be an odd pregnancy craving.

  • It's not that odd to put sauerkraut on pizza, I don't think.

  • - [Sarah] Here we go: pickle sandwich.

  • - You know, sandwiches are sandwiches.

  • Some sandwiches are good, some sandwiches are bad.

  • I think I will like it.

  • (toast crunches)

  • - Okay.

  • - It's not bad, but it's not great.

  • - It's like another vessel for eating the pickle.

  • - I do feel that if you're really into it,

  • you would add more pickles.

  • I just put like two slices; it's not enough.

  • - "Pickle sandwich" doesn't sound good to me,

  • but eating it, it's just like, Oh, I like pickles.

  • Of course I like a pickle sandwich.

  • I guess this one gets a nine out of ten for me.

  • - Actually, I'd give it a seven.

  • The more I eat it, the more I'm like, this is okay.

  • - The things you eat, at a certain stage in your pregnancy,

  • they start to flavor the placenta.

  • This experience could make my baby like weird things.

  • And if that happens, that's on you, internet.

  • - Oh, I love Cheetos.

  • - [Sarah] Flamin' hot Cheeto.

  • - Strawberry yogurt: good.

  • I'm not sure about them together.

  • - I think I see what's going on here

  • with the salty and sweet.

  • I might not have thought of it, but maybe it's still good.

  • - It might surprise me, so let's see.

  • (Cheetos crunch)

  • Oh, that's not bad.

  • Actually, that's not bad at all.

  • (Sarah murmurs)

  • The smell is sweet and salty

  • with a little bit of spicy Cheeto dust smell.

  • - I haven't had flamin' hot Cheetos

  • since I've been pregnant.

  • - I thought it would be weird,

  • but it's like the sourness of the yogurt

  • and then the...

  • the savoriness, saltiness of the Cheetos.

  • - These two don't sound like they should go together,

  • but it helps cut the hot heat in a way that I get.

  • - Yeah, I like this a lot, actually.

  • (laughs) I was surprised.

  • - Still not one I would probably get a ton.

  • So I'm going to give this one a seven out of ten. (crunches)

  • - [Cheska] Sauerkraut and Reese's peanut butter cups.

  • - I love Reese's peanut butter cups

  • and I can't imagine improving them,

  • so I don't know how sauerkraut is going to improve them.

  • You know what I mean? But...

  • - I don't even know how you would

  • think about this combination.

  • (laughs) I don't want to do it.

  • (groans)

  • - No.

  • No, no, no.

  • No, no, no, no, no. Absolutely not.

  • Absolutely not.

  • - They just don't go together.

  • They're just - they're not friends.

  • - Internet, you made me ruin

  • a perfectly good Reese's peanut butter cup,

  • and I'm upset about it.

  • - No.

  • Still no.

  • - I'm gonna give this a two out of ten.

  • - I love chocolate.

  • - [Sarah] Snickers with yellow mustard.

  • - It's just one of those things

  • that I keep eating during my pregnancy,

  • but I've also just eaten a lot of chocolate.

  • - Like right now, if you squint your eyes,

  • this could be a hot dog.

  • It's not.

  • It's delicious chocolate and there's mustard on it, so...

  • - It feels like the chocolate is gonna

  • overpower the mustard.

  • I think that's what's going to happen.

  • - Okay. (vocalizes)

  • - I don't like it.

  • - It's fine.

  • I could see if you used spicy mustard

  • that it might give the Snickers a spicy kick.

  • - I like mustard in my hot dogs.

  • I don't like it on my chocolate.

  • - This is fine, but I probably would prefer

  • the Snickers without the mustard,

  • so this gets us six out of ten for me.

  • - I'm gonna give it a one.

  • You can change your mind and wipe the mustard off

  • so you can still have a Snickers bar.

  • I don't know if it's my imagination

  • but I've been feeling Braxton Hicks contractions.

  • I think some of these combinations -

  • not all of them, some of them are really good -

  • but some these combinations, they just don't sit right.

  • - Pasta sauce with vanilla pudding on top.

  • I don't understand this one.

  • You already have sauce on it.

  • Why are you putting another

  • sauce-like substance on the pasta?

  • - Okay, now anything that smells too strong,

  • it makes me a little queasy.

  • - Going into this mixture, not a lot of faith.

  • - I feel like this might be better

  • with the pasta, to be honest.

  • I just didn't have time to make pasta.

  • So I'll just try it as it is.

  • - No.

  • It's another no.

  • Oh my God.

  • Oh my God.

  • Oh my God. (Cheska spits)
