  • If you had to eat this every day what would you think?

  • Is this, like, all they eat?

  • Or is there like taco Tuesday?

  • What do you know about prison?

  • Prison: you go in there if do something that's not okay.

  • It's a bad place.

  • They have bad food there.

  • I don't think prisoners need to have the best, most fanciest food.

  • Well, we are going to find out, because you are trying prison food from around the world.

  • [United Arab Emirates {Rice, lettuce, meat, curry, fruit}.}

  • All right, Nicolas, open your eyes.

  • - Eek. - You wanna dig in?

  • Yeah, but where's the fork?

  • In this prison the inmates actually eat their food with their hands.

  • Wait, with my hands?

  • Then you mix it all together.

  • Good?

  • I mean, in prison, I wouldn't really trust where my hands have been.

  • I wouldn't wanna use my hands to eat.

  • Do you ever ear your food with your hands?

  • - Never.

  • In this country, there's a bunch of stuff that you can get in trouble for that we might think is kinda crazy.

  • They really don't like kissing in public.

  • Kissing in public, not a crime.

  • So you can either go to prison or sometimes they'll give you 80 lashes.

  • Is that, like, with a belt?

  • Oh my gosh.

  • I don't know about that one.

  • That, that sounds a bit, torturing.

  • Do you think giving someone like unhealthy or gross food is torture in a way?

  • If I ate this every day it'd make me pretty crazy.

  • I can never eat this every day.

  • [Singapore {Fish, veggies, rice, noodles, fruit}.]

  • Ooh, that smells horrible!

  • Oh my gosh.

  • This does not look fully cooked.

  • Tastes like a sardine.

  • Where do you think this is from Celine?

  • Maybe, China?

  • This is from Singapore.

  • -What, Singapore? -Yeah.

  • Guess what, you cannot chew gum or spit in the streets.

  • Yes, that is correct.

  • So in Singapore they have to eat all of their food on the ground.

  • They have to sit in their cell, and it's kind of like, slid to them through a hole.

  • I wish there was like a little teeny, tiny table.

  • Can they eat on their bed?

  • So, they actually don't have a bed.

  • Do you sleep on the ground?

  • On the floor, there's no like little bed?

  • There's just like a straw mat and a blanket, but no pillow.

  • Oh my gosh, I cannot imagine living without a bed.

  • [Philadelphia {Pasta, cubed carrots, grains, brownie, white cake}.]

  • Whoa.

  • This looks like what I see in movies.

  • It doesn't look good.

  • Pasta does not taste that great.

  • This is... not good.

  • - No? - No.

  • What country do you think this is from?

  • Mexico? Or maybe Italy?

  • England?

  • This is from the U.S.A.

  • Is this, like, all they eat?

  • Or is there like taco Tuesday?

  • Not usually taco Tuesday, no.

  • How many people do you think in the whole country are in jail?

  • 5,600.

  • 2.2 million people.

  • That's a pretty big number.

  • The US alone spends up to $182 billion every year on prison.

  • What?

  • Well, I mean, like, they gave us brownies, so like.

  • -So that price makes sense? -Yeah.

  • Where'd all the cake go?

  • I think you ate all the cake Celine.

  • [Australia {Macaroni, salad, cous cous, jerk chicken, ratatouille, berry yogurt}.]

  • All right, open your eyes.

  • What, is that rice?

  • Whoa, a real meal.

  • That's good.

  • So this is from the Alexander Maconochie Center, which describes itself as a human rights compliant jail.

  • Sounds like a bit nicer of a jail.

  • Like, in their minds be like, oh these people are human, they probably have reasons to do this, they have rights too.

  • Exactly.

  • It's a lot smaller, so there are like 300 prisoners here, and it has like a town square, so there's like a health building, an education building, a library, a visiting center.

  • Whoa!

  • I'd tell them that's pretty good, 'cause, they don't want you to get dumb.

  • To give them, like, a chance?

  • Yeah, that's a good way of putting it, it's kind of just giving somebody a chance.

  • Sounds right.

  • I mean, I think if you treat a prisoner more like a human than an inmate they'll probably feel like, oh, I'm being treated as a human I can still live a normal human life.

  • If I ever went to jail, I'd go here.

  • Commit a crime in Australia, if that's really what you've got your heart set on.

  • -Actually don't, just don't go to prison, I don't know why I'm advising that. -Yeah, but I'm just saying, if I ever went to prison that's where I would go.

  • Gotcha, well a lot of times you don't really get that choice.

  • I seriously don't wanna go to jail.

  • I do not want you to go to jail either.

  • -Bye! -Bye!

If you had to eat this every day what would you think?
