  • Today, we ask the question,

  • (Rhett & Link) "Will it cereal?"

  • Let's find out about that.

  • ♪ (theme music) ♪

  • - Good Mythical Morning! - I am fond of cereal.

  • This has been established. I eat it multiple times a day,

  • even when no one offers it. I seek it out. Maybe...

  • That's not unusual, by the way. You're an adult man,

  • getting the cereal on your own, just so you know.

  • Just because your mom doesn't ask you if you want any more,

  • - that's not an unusual thing. - That's not what I meant.

  • I don't know what I meant, but that wasn't it.

  • I seek it out! I love it so much.

  • But what we don't know, though, is all the things

  • that you typically like to eat are things that are typically sold as cereals.

  • - (Rhett) When you open up your cabinet, - (Link) Right, in boxes.

  • - it says cereal on it. - Right.

  • But there are so many things out there that seem to be so close

  • to being cereal that it just begs the question,

  • "Will it cereal?"

  • So today we not only ask the question, but we answer the question definitively.

  • We do this so you won't have to,

  • unless you want to, after seeing what happens when we do.

  • Let's get started with

  • (Rhett & Link) Will it cereal?

  • My kids love Goldfish. I've never been a huge fan, but I've never added milk.

  • (Rhett & Link) Goldfish! Will It cereal?

  • This is waiting to be cereal.

  • - They're Goldfish. They need to swim... - Cerealized.

  • ..and they're crackly and crunchy like cereal should be.

  • They respond well to the milk...

  • - ...I kind of see that happening. - Well, they're fish!

  • - They should be swimming. - I already said that.

  • - Is that what you said earlier? - Yeah, I did.

  • - I said they should be swimming, but... - You know what I was doing

  • - when I wasn't listening to you? - You were thinking about,

  • - "I gotta open this milk." - I was thinking about

  • - how good this was gonna be. - "I don't wanna lose my grip on this milk."

  • - Cheesy, milky. - Join me!

  • (crunching)

  • It's not immediately awesome.

  • It's a little cheesier than cereal typically is.

  • Boy, this is right down the middle for me.

  • Yeah, it's difficult to decide, really.

  • I think because of the way that it looks, and the fact that they look like

  • they're at home in the water or the milk, I'm gonna say...

  • - Yes, it cereals. - Yeah, I feel like yes, it does cereal.

  • (approved ding)

  • Here's another one: Skittles!

  • (Rhett & Link) Skittles! Will it cereal?

  • Now, again, Skittles. They're waiting to be spooned.

  • (both laughing)

  • (Rhett) "Skittles: Waiting to Be Spooned."

  • - I think that was their working-- - Will you volunteer?

  • That was their slogan for a while.

  • So lots of cereals are fruit-flavored, but they stop short

  • because they stay crispy. Why can't they just be chewy candy?

  • (Skittles rattling as they're stirred)

  • - (Rhett) It's pretty... - (Link) I'm not tasting the rainbow yet,

  • - but I'm seeing it float. - Yeah, it's changing.

  • - (Link) Look at that right there. - (Rhett) It's leaking.

  • The rainbow is leaking.

  • - I'm leaking rainbow. - (Rhett) Here we go.

  • - (crunching) Oh! - (Link) Whoo!

  • (Rhett) When you bite into cereal, you expect to break through,

  • but you don't with Skittles.

  • - Yeah, you really gotta... - Especially when they've been

  • chilled in cold milk.

  • ...you've gotta bear down on them Skittles.

  • The only way we can test if this cereals is we have to drink the Skittle milk.

  • - Skilk... Skittle milk. - I'm all about that.

  • (slurping)

  • - Guys... - Oh! Whoa!

  • It'll cereal!

  • Skittle milk! Forget Skittle cereal.

  • (Rhett & Link) Skittle milk!

  • Call someone right now!

  • (approved ding)

  • I have milk every morning with my cereal, but I have milk in my coffee,

  • but I don't have my coffee in my cereal, until today.

  • (Rhett & Link) Coffee beans! Will it cereal?

  • These are roasted coffee beans, Fair Trade, of course.

  • Oh, it looks so good.

  • I think this is gonna make good coffee milk, too.

  • (crunching) Oh yeah.

  • I think this might milk, but I don't know if it will cereal.

  • Okay, so here we go.

  • -It's like I need to go easy with a spoonful.

  • (crunching) Oh!

  • (crunching)

  • I haven't had anything this crunchy since the scorpion.

  • - (Link whining) - (Rhett) Don't play around, man.

  • (Rhett) Just (grunts) eat it! Eat that scorpion!

  • (crunching)

  • Oh, it's bitter. Oh my.

  • That is a strong cup of coffee.

  • Boy.

  • (Link) I would recommend adding

  • a handful or less of coffee beans to any cereal you want...

  • Guh!

  • ...but I would not recommend trying to down a whole bowl of this.

  • I can't swallow these, man. I gotta spit 'em.

  • (spitting)

  • Will it cereal?

  • - (rejected buzzer) - (Rhett & Link) No.

  • Okay, lots of cereals are made from corn.

  • You've got Corn Flakes, you've got Corn Pops.

  • Why do you gotta process the corn?

  • Why can't you just make it straight-up corn?

  • (Rhett & Link) Corn! Will it cereal?

  • - Cut out the middleman! - Whole kernel corn.

  • Just gimme... get my corn on!

  • Just let me get my corn on.

  • (Link) Corn and milk. It's like I'm in the...

  • it's like I'm in the breadbasket of America.

  • (Rhett) Mm. Mm! Oh my goodness, that is good!

  • - What? - I like creamed corn though.

  • I'm American.

  • "I'm American. I like creamed corn."

  • It's not sitting right in my brain.

  • You don't like creamed corn though, right?

  • (Link) Corn: good. Milk: good. As cereal: not good to me.

  • And I gotta say, I would recommend it as a hot dish...

  • So you just go with creamed corn. You know what, don't even do this.

  • I'm gonna say, will it cereal?

  • (rejected buzzer) (Rhett & Link) No.

  • I mean, we gotta get into some meat.

  • And what's the first thing you think of when you think of meat?

  • - (Rhett in a manly voice) Bacon. - (Link) If you're smart? Bacon.

  • (Rhett & Link) Bacon bits! Will it cereal?

  • I will say, you used to come to my house as a child

  • and the first thing you would do

  • is go to my cabinet and grab my bacon bits.

  • And it was as if you were from some place where they didn't have bacon bits.

  • I've never had this until right now.

  • - (Rhett) Mm. - Got a little dribble-dribble.

  • Mm. Very strong bacon flavor.

  • - (Link) It's like a pig... - (Rhett) A cow and a pig together.

  • ...it's like a pig dove into a swimming pool

  • full of dairy product.

  • When you eat a number of bacon bits, the bit part really kind of loses

  • all meaning and it just becomes bacon again.

  • Mm-hmm.

  • A spoonful of bacon bits is just a spoonful of bacon.

  • Will it cereal?

  • - Yes. - Yes, definitely.

  • (approved ding)

  • All right, when you eat something that's high in cholesterol,

  • you wanna follow it up with something healthy, like salad.

  • (Rhett & Link) Salad! Will it cereal?

  • And you know what? It's hard to get the kids to eat salad these days,

  • but what if you made it salad cereal?

  • Or just hide it under milk.

  • Bobby, it's not salad. It's cereal! (nasally voice) Okay, mom!

  • Sa... I'm trying to combine the words "salad" and "cereal"...

  • (silly voice) Salay-alay-arul-ed.

  • (gibberish sounding like "salad" and "cereal")

  • Salareal. Salareal.

  • Salareal, with your favorite baseball player on the package!

  • - (Rhett) Ugh. - (squishing)

  • That does not meet any expectation of goodness.

  • I like milk a lot though.

  • Once the milk goes away, and you're left with salad,

  • things get back to normal.

  • This is like a really creamy ranch.

  • It's just like somebody watered down the ranch.

  • - They're stretchin' the ranch tonight. - (both laughing)

  • Stretchin' the ranch!

  • (Rhett) I gotta say. I think it does cereal.

  • It does not cereal. Will it cereal?

  • - Yes! - No.

  • - (approved ding) - (rejected buzzer)

  • Okay, back to beef. Or back to meat.

  • In loaf form.

  • (Rhett & Link) Meatloaf! Will it cereal?

  • So we've taken some meatloaf...

  • - Well, some people are intimidated... - (Link) ...and we've nuggeted it.

  • ...some people are intimidated by "loafs."

  • I know that my wife, for instance, does not like anything in a loaf pattern.

  • Except bread.

  • Now... I'm not... hungry for this.

  • "Now, lemme tell ya, I'm not hungry for this."

  • (Rhett) So if it hits the spot, then it says a lot.

  • (Link) If it hits the spot, it says a lot.

  • - (Rhett) Guh! - (Link) Ugh.

  • (through laughter) I can't get it down.

  • It is so bad.

  • Hold on, hold on. Hey, think about it.

  • It's two parts cow.

  • Two parts cow, no part anything else.

  • Yeah! This is all cow!

  • All cow, all the time. - (both laughing)

  • Will it cereal?

  • - Yeah! - No! What?

  • - (approved ding) - (rejected buzzer)

  • If you're a college student,

  • you probably have spent a lot of time eating this.

  • This is ramen.

  • (Rhett & Link) Ramen! Will it cereal?

  • You wanna put the beef flavor in so when you put milk...

  • Ooh, no.

  • Oh yes!

  • Look at that. It's brown powder, and it's got...

  • - It's beef! - Beef FLAVOR.

  • (Rhett) And more beef. Well, beef liquid.

  • (laughing) Liquid of the beef.

  • - (Rhett laughing) - (Link) Powdered essence of cow

  • and liquid essence of cow, mixing on hardened essence of noodle.

  • I think this is gonna be difficult.

  • - (scraping) - (Rhett) It's still pretty powdery...

  • Now, I think this is like a "Frosted Maxi-Wheat."

  • (both laughing)

  • (Rhett) Oh, gosh. Here we go.

  • (crunching)

  • Did you just fall out of your chair?

  • (muffled) Salty.

  • Very salty.

  • Do I have ramen in my hair or something?

  • Mm. Take yourself back to college for a second.

  • It's really not bad.

  • We found something that you like and I don't like.

  • I've been making this stuff with milk my whole life.

  • ...What?

  • You don't boil ramen in milk? (laughing)

  • No, I do what the package says.

  • - I could be wrong, but... - "I could be wrong."

  • I like it. Will it cereal?

  • - No! - Yes! A little bit.

  • - (rejected buzzer)- (approved ding)

  • All right, guys. Now it's time to take it up a notch.

  • We're going to a place that I can pretty much guarantee is not...

  • You've still got ramen in your hair. It's kinda...

  • Well, just get it out.

  • (flicking noise)

  • I'll eat that later. We're going to a place...

  • I almost did it with the spoon side, so I'm sorry.

  • That's fine. We're going to a place that we pretty much know

  • isn't gonna cereal, but we have to go too far

  • to know when we need to back up a little bit.

  • Unless you're a dog, and then you're probably in a good place.

  • (Rhett & Link) Dog food! Will it cereal?

  • This isn't any dog food.

  • Kibbles 'n Bits looks like children's cereal.

  • But it smells like (sniffs) dog food.

  • (offscreen laughter)

  • - It's got... - Maybe we can cover up

  • that dog food smell with milk.

  • (Link) Hey, kids. Don't ask any questions.

  • (Rhett) How many Bits and how may Kibbles,

  • and which one's a Kibble and which one's a Bit?

  • (Link) There's a Kibble and a Bit, and then there's a dark thing,

  • and then there's a long brown thing.

  • And they didn't wanna call it,

  • "Kibbles 'n Bits 'n a Brown Thing 'n a Long Dark Thing."

  • (both laughing)

  • - Okay. - Okay, here we go. Three, two...
