So have you ever carved open a pumpkin and then
00:02
on the inside you have like the smell of pumpkin?
00:06
It's like that smell but slightly rotten
00:09
converted into a taste.
00:11
[dramatic music]
00:15
[dinging]
00:17
[upbeat music]
00:20
I'll start with this one.
00:23
This one looks like it's store bought.
00:26
You know that like mac and cheese
00:28
that comes in those little bowls,
00:30
like, like, yeah, it looks like that.
00:34
This one looks really really cheesy
00:38
but not that cheesy, cheesy cheesy, cheesy.
00:43
I can already tell this one has bacon in it, I think.
00:47
[Man] What does that tell you?
00:49
That it's homemade.
00:51
I'm taking a bite of B.
00:56
There's like clumps of cheese and it kind of melts
00:58
in your mouth once your saliva touches it.
01:03
[upbeat music]
01:07
Okay now you're confusing me, 'cause now
01:09
I think this one's homemade.
01:11
A tastes more cheesy but more raw.
01:13
[upbeat music]
01:20
Not my favorite.
01:23
I think C is homemade.
01:25
I think that C is homemade.
01:27
[dramatic music]
01:36
Wait, it just says C.
01:41
[Man] Nope.
01:44
Gonna see this one.
01:49
I was right before.
01:51
[upbeat music]
01:54
This is like the classic store bought pasta
01:59
and they always exaggerate the yellowness in it.
02:02
The second one's a lot bigger,
02:05
also the red sauce and it has like also ridges.
02:11
This one looks more pale and
02:13
it's in more shape of a circle.
02:18
Floppy, wow.
02:20
[upbeat music]
02:25
Wow, that was really good, I think that was my favorite.
02:29
[upbeat music]
02:36
This one has something different in it,
02:39
to me it tastes like stuffing.
02:42
[Man] Like turkey stuffing?
02:43
[upbeat music]
02:49
The texture was like the same kind of texture
02:51
that you'd expect from a store bought ravioli.
02:56
I think that A is homemade.
02:59
I think that B is homemade.
03:01
[dramatic music]
03:11
Yes, I was right!
03:14
Yes!
03:16
I know that one's normal because I ate the whole thing.
03:20
[upbeat music]
03:23
Wow, oh, oh Spaghetti O, I get it, I get it, okay.
03:30
Okay so kind of just by looking at it,
03:32
I can kind of make an inference
03:34
that C is the homemade pasta.
03:38
B looks like the same texture as like
03:41
a store bought Spaghettios with like the soupiness.
03:46
This one is soup, like this is soup, totally soup.
03:51
And the rings are pretty small and thin.
03:54
There's like different shapes and sizes,
03:56
there's like the really really tiny one
03:59
and there's like the bigger one.
04:01
[Man] Which one do you wanna take a bite of first?
04:03
C.
04:05
[upbeat music]
04:09
Definitely homemade, definitely.
04:11
Okay.
04:12
[upbeat music]
04:23
Yeah I think A is also store bought.
04:25
Yeah I think this one's homemade.
04:27
[Man] You sure about that?
04:29
Yes.
04:30
[dramatic music]
04:34
Yes, it was homemade, I was right, I knew it.
04:37
Ugh poor store, ugh poor people.
04:42
[upbeat music]
04:46
[Man] Open your eyes.
04:48
I knew it, it smelled exactly like my mother's lasagna.
04:52
I don't think that's a good think though.
04:56
My grandma makes lasagna and she makes it homemade
04:59
and this is just how it looks like.
05:01
[Man] Does your grandma make good lasagna?
05:02
Yeah, really good.
05:04
I feel like this one is super hard,
05:07
looks crunchy and stuff like a cookie.
05:10
Oh my gosh, it looks like it has spinach in it.
05:15
I don't think this is even edible.
05:18
[upbeat music]
05:22
Okay this one tastes really good, I'm not kidding,
05:26
'cause look, has cheese, red sauce, those are the both
05:30
favorite things that I like in my pasta.
05:33
[upbeat music]
05:37
Okay it just tastes natural
05:41
and like fresh and like lasagna.
05:43
[upbeat music]
05:47
Tastes like an unedible slime.
05:54
Don't question it.
05:57
So first I thought that A was the homemade lasagna
06:00
but now I'm changing my guess to B.
06:03
I think B is homemade.
06:04
[dramatic music]
06:12
Store bought, what?
06:16
[sighing]
06:20
These cards must be mixed around,
06:22
'cause like this, this is the only edible one.
06:27
[upbeat music]
06:30
Oo yummy.
06:35
[Man] That's good.
06:37
[Girl] I see pasta with cheese and sauce.
06:40
But with stripes this time.
06:42
This one looks really like it doesn't have that much
06:45
sauce on it, this one doesn't look edible,
06:49
it looks like rubber.
06:51
Kind of looks cheesy, it's cheesy.
06:55
Looks good.
06:57
[upbeat music]
07:00
This is hard to chew.
07:03
It's very...
07:06
creamy like.
07:09
[upbeat music]
07:14
I can kinda taste the cheese inside
07:16
and I kinda see the red peppers and stuff.
07:19
[upbeat music]
07:23
The cheese is hard, doesn't taste very good.
07:27
I think just because A has a little bit of cheese,
07:33
it is not...
07:37
store bought.
07:39
I think A is homemade.
07:41
[dramatic music]
07:54
And it was homemade.
07:55
[upbeat music]
07:59
My god.
08:00
[Man] So what happened?
08:01
I'm bummed out.
08:03
[Man] Why are you bummed out?
08:05
'Cause I'm wrong, I didn't get one thing right.
