  • Can we tell the difference between fresh

  • - and frozen food? - Let's talk about that.

  • ♪ (intro music) ♪

  • Good mythical morning!

  • We live in the future. Anything that you want to eat, you can get it in prepackaged

  • frozen form. You just pop it in the microwave and it tastes exactly like the

  • fresh thing, right?

  • - Wrong? - Question mark!

  • - I don't know! - But we should find out today because

  • today we're gonna put our taste buds to the test to see if we can tell the

  • difference between the fresh and its frozen counterpart of foods. Let's do this.

  • As you can see, we can't.

  • Okay, we're gonna be presented with a dish in two forms; one is fresh, one is frozen.

  • - We taste bose of them - both of them! - Bose of them.

  • After we taste both of them, we put the (Both) frozen flag in the one that we think is frozen.

  • The loser at the end of these shenanigans has to wear a Frozen costume that is frozen.

  • Yes. Let's do it.

  • Okay, the reason we're blindfolded is because a lot of people think you can just

  • tell the difference by looking at these and the thing is, people say, "Oh, when

  • it's frozen, I can totally tell. It's just not as good." Well, maybe that's true,

  • - maybe that's not. - Yeah maybe.

  • - We're gonna find out just by the taste buds. - You don't wanna be swayed by the looks.

  • Let's go for the left one first. And this is - um, okay I got a slice.

  • - Some weird entangling that's happened. - (laughs) Sorry.

  • - Awkward. - I wasn't trying to hold your hand.

  • - It's a thin crust. - I'm just feeling it here.

  • It's got a good smell. I am hungry, not necessarily for pizza but okay.

  • Mhmm.

  • - What is this, a barbecue pizza? - Tastes like California Pizza Chicken.

  • Pizza Chicken (laughs)

  • - But it is a barbecue chicken pizza? - Yeah.

  • - They've given us nothing to go on, here. - I have an immediate impression of this one.

  • - I don't wanna give you what I think that is. - Give it to me, it ain't gonna help me.

  • I don't listen to you anyway.

  • - I'll tell you right now, I don't think it's good. - (crew member laughs)

  • Yeah, well that's what I was going to say. It feels like this, like that--

  • - You know what? - might be frozen.

  • And then over here. (Rhett) I'll take this one.

  • (Link) Okay. (Rhett) This one feels so similar, though.

  • It does, the weight and the thinness.

  • (Rhett) What pizza is this y'all?

  • I went for crust first, that was a fail.

  • Huh.

  • - This one tastes exactly the same. - It's the same pizza.

  • I mean, I'm telling you right now brotha, they have duped us from the sti-zart.

  • I think I know exactly...

  • I'm trying to put my pizza down.

  • (inaudible)

  • I was trying to trick you, man.

  • (laughs) You trying to trick me?

  • (Rhett) Yeah, right there.

  • - Alright, I'm making my vote. - I made my vote.

  • I'm taking my glasses up.

  • - Oh, we agree! - Okay, alright.

  • Okay. (Rhett) So this is frozen town over here?

  • - (Link) Is this frozen town? - (Drew) Yes.

  • - Alright. - (Drew) You guys are both right.

  • - Yeah we are both right. - And I think by looking at it, I mean the

  • chicken is a little more cubicle-ized.

  • Yeah that's, you know what, that's why the blindfolds help--

  • - Uh huh. - because that would've been a dead giveaway.

  • - (Link) We're just frozen geniuses. - (Rhett) I thought this was pretty good.

  • - Mac and cheese. - Let's start over here on my side.

  • - Okay. I'm told there's a spoon for you and there's a spoon for me.

  • - (Rhett) Are you out yet? - I'm not out but I'm hovering and I'm

  • getting close to the mouth.

  • I don't have any idea if I've even got stuff on this spoon but I'm going for it.

  • - Should we feed ourselves or...? - Yeah we should feed ourselves.

  • (Link laughs) Wow.

  • - That is really good. If that's frozen... - Then take me to the frozen aisle.

  • - Yeah buddy. - I like the pepper in it.

  • - Yeah I'm getting a little bit. - (Link) What are you - you going in for

  • seconds? Then I'm going in for seconds.

  • - You know what, forget it. - Man!

  • Man, you over there having a good time, I couldn't even find it again. Alright, and

  • then we're over here. That's my hand.

  • - (Rhett) That's my spoon. - (Link) Alright, so this spoon's - I'm

  • - assuming it has something in it. - Oh I feel weight, I feel weight on the

  • end of that one.

  • Hm, bit of a letdown. But it's very classic tasting.

  • - You know what? - If I hadn't--

  • - This could be a curveball! - Just tastes like straight out the box.

  • It's fresh pasta, not fresh - you know what I mean, never frozen. Hmm...

  • Man, if that's frozen, I'd like to meet the man who freezes that.

  • Either this is nasty frozen or that's frozen but trying-real-hard-to-compensate-

  • for-being-frozen frozen.

  • I feel like...you know what...

  • I think you're over here so I'm gonna go over here.

  • I feel like...There's nothing to stick it in at this point.

  • - Oh wow, there's a lot to stick it in. - (Link) Alright.

  • - Take your blindfolds off. - Oh we did disagree. So you believed

  • - against the curveball. - This definitely tasted better but it--

  • - This is amazing. - be like some gourmet--

  • - I really, I think-- - frozen dish.

  • This doesn't look like the box stuff. It's got like some crumbs on it. Alright, let us have it.

  • - (Drew) Rhett, you're right. - Yeah, I'm right!

  • - Woo! - Who made this 'cause I'm coming over for dinner.

  • Let me just a little bit more of this, it's really good.

  • And we're gonna get some green beans going on here. Now, I'm used to like,

  • green beans fresh out of the garden. Am I actually grabbing a bean? What's happening here?

  • I'm just going - I'm just going straight bean.

  • I grabbed a bean, I'mma eat the fork. Are you on the left, first?

  • Yeah, your side.

  • Okay.

  • - (crew laughing) - (Rhett) Huh.

  • Dang, these are raw.

  • Pretty al dente.

  • That's a fresh bean right there.

  • It almost just tastes like I'm eating grass, though.

  • I don't think if you thawed a frozen bean it would be that crunchy.

  • (Rhett) Not true because they're fresh frozen versus cooked frozen, Link.

  • - (Link) Where's my fork? Where the fork - okay. - These are better but they're not seasoned.

  • (Link) I'll tell you right now, this one has half the flavor of the one on the left.

  • (Rhett) Really? I feel like one of them - this one - that one - this - this one -

  • feels like it's had a constitutional change in its - in its makeup.

  • (Rhett) Looks like we're... (Link) Oh are you voting?

  • - (Rhett) Little agreement over here. - Oh, we do. Yeah, look at that. So were we right?

  • - (Drew) You're both right. - Yeah we are!

  • Yeah, I really - I mean I really thought it was half the flavor.

  • Constitutional change.

  • I think this is like the quintessential fresh versus frozen debate. I know that my

  • wife is always like, "We have to get the frozen fish because I can tell the

  • difference." She talks just like that when she says it.

  • - Well, I'm staying out of this one. - (Rhett) Let's start over here on my side.

  • (Link) Now - but is this a salmon patty because my nanny would always make a

  • - salmon patty but not a salmon steak. - There are no patties on an actual

  • salmon, Link. I've looked salmon up and down, one side to the other, I never saw a

  • - patty. But I've seen a fillet, though. - Okay.

  • (Rhett) Go ahead and take your bite.

  • I don't really know how I'm doing here. I might have to bring in a--

  • (Rhett) Why you keep hitting my fork?

  • You might have to bring in the left hand.

  • (Link) Ooh, okay. (Rhett) This side smells good, that's all I can say.

  • Alright, I got something here. Have you got yours?

  • - No, I was waiting on you. - (Link) Sorry.

  • - That's more than a bite. - Yeah, I thought I had too much at first.

  • Had to touch all over it. Are you ready? Alright I'm eating.

  • (Rhett) Yeah, I'm eating.

  • - (crew member laughs) - Mmm, that does taste good!

  • Hold on, I didn't think you were a salmon man.

  • I'm not, I should've blindfolded myself.

  • Are you telling me you've only ever eaten salmon in patty form and now this is your

  • - first introduction to a salmon fillet? - Yeah.

  • Well welcome to the club, man!

  • - I didn't like the way it looked. - (Rhett) You're telling me you haven't

  • - eaten it because of the way it looked? - Maybe it's I really only prefer frozen salmon.

  • (Rhett) Alright, what have we got here, oh there it is.

  • (Link) Nothing?

  • There's certain points when being blindfolded hinders the process of eating.

  • - I got such a small amount. - (crew laughs)

  • (Link) Dang, you know what? (Rhett) This is good too, man!

  • Also good over here!

  • What is happening between sticking it and bringing it?

  • (crew laughing)

  • Something tells me you're having a little bit of trouble.

  • Man, I brought my fork over like four times now. And it's just...

  • - (crew laughing) - What is--

  • Use your finger.

  • Oh, I feel weight now.

  • - Oh! - (crew laughing)

  • - Where did it go? - It's not over here, man.

  • - (crew member) On the ground. - It went on the ground?

  • - (crew laughs) - Dangit!

  • - Well you're gonna have to vote, man. - Hold on--

  • - I'm sorry. - I'm coming--

  • - Time is up, dude. - I'm coming in two-handed.

  • - I gots to say... - I don't know man, they're both so good,

  • there's no clear choice here. I might just have to bow out on this one.

  • - (Rhett) Yeah there's no clear choice. - But we probably should vote. You should
