– That was disgusting.
Mom, what are you eating? – I’m glad you like it.
There’s plenty in the back. – What?
– We’re taking some to go. – Ahhhh! ♪ (upbeat intro) ♪ – (FBE) Today, we would
like to prank your children. – Yes!
– (chuckles) Yay! – (FBE) This episode is gonna
be coming out on April Fool’s Day, and so we’re gonna be playing a round
of Guess Your Mother’s Cooking. However, there’s going to be a catch.
All of the food is going to be made of us.
We’ll be giving them some identical dishes,
dishes made poorly, but safely, and then, in the final round,
some pretty gross food. – Yeah.
– Okay. – All right. Let’s do it.
– (FBE) Today, we’re going to see if you can guess
your mother’s cooking. – (both exclaim) – Whoop-whoop!
– Mom! I was not aware of this! – You’re so sneaky!
– I got this. Easy. Easy. My mom– I got this.
– Sometimes I don’t like your brussel sprouts,
’cause they’re nasty. – (FBE) So, here’s how
this game is gonna work. We’ve got three dishes
for each of you to try. For each one of them,
one is going to made by your mom. One is going to be made
by the other person’s mom, and one of us is going
to be made by us here at FBE as a decoy.
And you’ll get to try all three before deciding which one
was made by your mother. And because we want this
to be as pure of a taste test as possible, you will need
to put on your blindfolds. – No, no!
– (laughs) – That’s the only way
I’m gonna be able to tell! – (Tida squeaks)
– This is so hard! – I can’t even see anything.
– I can’t see you, Sydney! Tell me where you are.
– (FBE) So, the first round is all going to be pasta dishes.
– (gasps) Yes! Hold on. My mom makes the best pasta.
– Yay. – Oh, yay.
– (Tida) We’re gonna make a mess. – (Y) This is true.
– (FBE) All right. – This isn’t my mama’s.
– Uh-uh. No. (gags) – This FBE!
My mom would never cook something this sweet.
– It’s pretty sweet, but I don’t think that’s my mom’s.
– Ew! – That’s some Prego, whatever.
– This isn’t my mom’s. It’s FBE. First of all, my mama
can’t even touch sugar. She says it give you cavities.
This ain’t my mama’s. – I like it.
– I can’t get any pasta. I can’t.
– Here. You wanna use mine? Wanna use mine?
– (all laugh) – Wanna? Where?
– I smell cinnamon. – (Tida and Y) What?
– Cinnamon? – I can tell this is not my mom’s,
because she doesn’t put cinnamon in the sauce.
– I’m gonna say not my mom’s. – Ugh! Take this away!
– (FBE) Here is option B. – (Tida) Mm, this is not bad.
– Ugh. It’s salty. – I like it. It’s really salty.
– Ew! (gags) – It’s my mommy’s cooking.
– That is? – Mm-hmm.
– I guess Noelle’s. I’m not confident
that that’s my mom’s. It was better than the last one,
but I’m not confident. The last one was gross.
The last one was sweet. – You could say that again, sister! – It was sweet!
– High five. – Why was it sweet?
Who puts sugar in their pasta? – (FBE) Do either of you think
that your mother made this? – Oh, definitely not. No.
– This one might be my mom. – I wonder why.
– You know I like salt. It’s very salty.
– Okay, I don’t know if it’s my mom’s though.
– And my mom’s cooking is good, and don’t insult her saltiness.
– That’s why I’m not trying to say anything.
I’m like, “Wow.” – (FBE) Here is option C.
– I’m going for the hands. Ahhh! It smells like peanuts. – (FBE) Big fans of this one?
– (hesitantly) Yeah. – I haven’t swallowed it.
– Are these my tupperware? I don’t know.
– It’s so good! – Oh! I know what this is!
I saw this on the kitchen counter. I saw this new pasta sauce
my mom got from Trader Joe’s. She got lemon Alfredo pasta sauce
from Trader Joe’s. I saw it on the counter.
This is 100% my mom’s. – Well, you did a good job, ma’am!
– Oh, god. – Lemon Alfredo sauce
from Trader Joe’s. Period. – Could I take this off?
‘Cause I’m really trying to grub up here.
– I like it a lot. My second favorite.
– I’m glad you like it. There’s plenty in the back.
– What? – We’re taking some to go.
– Ahhhh! – The first one was sweet, okay.
Then bleh, bad. Second one, pretty good.
I know it’s Noelle’s mom, so I’m not gonna say
anything bad about it. This one, it’s not the sauce
my mom usually makes, but Trader Joe’s is good, I guess.
– Listen, I think they were all good, but honestly…
– Period. – …I need take this off,
so I can start grubbin’ again. – (FBE) Which of those
do you think that your mother made between A, B, and C?
– B, B, B, B, B, B. – I think it’s A.
I know my mom is good at making pasta. – (FBE) Tida, why do you say B?
– Salty. – (FBE) Why does salty
mean it’s your mom’s? – Didn’t measure it correctly.
– (laughs) – Also, ’cause she knows I like salt.
– That’s a good answer. – B.
– C. – (FBE) Unfortunately, guys,
you are actually both wrong! – Ah!
– Mom, I’m so– what the?! – (FBE) For this first round,
unfortunately, neither of you get the point.
– What? – No, no, no, no, no.
– I’m so disappointed in you, Graham Cracker!
– Why? – (sighs) Mom. What are you doing?
– What are YOU doin’?! – (FBE) This is our dessert round.
– YAY! – (FBE) Here is option A. – Mmm! – (both moms laugh)
– Mmm. – Mmmm!
– Is this homemade? This tastes store bought.
I mean, whoever made it, yum. – This is a lot of whipped cream
on this or frosting. – Is that whipped cream?
No, that’s frost– Ugh. My mom’s on keto or something, so I don’t think she made this.
– Send this to the church! – Oh my gosh. It’s amazing.
– So, what do you think? – What’s Soph doing?
– She’s eating. – She’s enjoying it.
– I hear a lot of (lips smacking). – I don’t like it. I don’t like.
– Me neither. Ooh, I don’t know if I like this.
Send it to the church! We’ll pour some holy water
and get some frosting off that. – Is this a bundt cake?
My mom loves buying bundt cake. She’d never make it.
– (FBE) Do either of you think that your mother
could have made this one? – Yeah.
– She might have made it. – If it’s store-bought bundt cake,
it’s definitely my mom. – Listen, Sydney, you need to take
this back to the store if your mom made this
and tell them they did a horrible job. – Why?! Is that bad?!
– Get her her money back! My mom would’ve never put
this much frosting on this! You can come get the cakes now.
I’m done! – (FBE) Here is option B. – Is this it? It’s like– wow.
– I didn’t taste anything. – I am a cake connoisseur. It’s cake!
– All I got was frosting! – Mm! This is good.
– (laughs) – I like it.
– I’m confused. – You confused?
– (FBE) You’re confused? What– – These taste the same!
– These don’t taste the same! This one…
– (laughs) They do! – …is less sprinkly
and less frosting-y! – Did the other one have sprinkles?
– I think so. – I need a glass of milk.
– (FBE) Do either of you think that your mom could have made this?
– Yes. – No.
– It tastes like my mom’s baking. – Is this the bundt cake?
– Yeah, this is not my mom’s, ’cause it has a layer of frosting
on the inside. My mom bought a bundt cake.
There’s no frosting on the inside. – Uh-huh, sweetie.
– Is this frosting? – It has less frosting,
and I feel like there’s sprinkles, though.
– Yeah, ’cause my mom did buy a confetti cake earlier this week.
– Eww! Did she buy a confetti cake?! – (Ramona) Did you
buy a confetti– (laughs) – This could be my mother’s. – My mom did not make
no frosting cake. – I think the sugar’s starting to…
– (FBE) The sugar’s kicking in at this point?
– Maybe. – I don’t know.
– (FBE) What makes you say that? – I don’t know. I think you’re wrong.
– (Y laughs) – I think you’re wrong
about that. – (FBE) All right. Hang on,
we got one more dessert for you, but I’m definitely not gonna
let you eat as much. – Awww!
– (FBE) Here is option C. – It has sprinkles!
– “It has wrinkles.” – Sprinkles. – I said “sprinkles.” (chuckles)
– It has wrinkles. Mmm. It tastes so sprinkles.
– Did I even get anything? – Mmm, my mama made this!
– (laughs) – Your mom made this?
– Mm-hmm! – That’s int–
I don’t think I like it. I don’t really like cake
that much actually. I just don’t like a lot of frosting.
– (gasps) Did you say you didn’t like cake?!
I didn’t hear her say she didn’t like cake.
What I heard her say is “I LOVE cake.”
– (FBE) Which do you think was made by your mother?
– B. – A.
– B. – C.
– (FBE) You are once again both wrong! – Ahhhh!
– Wow! – Uh-uh-uh.
– Dang it. – What the heck?!
– What?! – They were all not good. – They were all disturbing.
– They all were the same! They all tasted exactly the same!
– They were disturbing. – There’s a scheme going on.
– I’m shocked that she can’t tell which one I made.
– You’re not shocked! They all tasted the–
I can tell. You’re like… – (moms laugh)
– (FBE) Well, we’ve got a thrilling 0 to 0 game
on our hands here going into the final round. – Yay!
– Noelle, we got this. Noelle, I believe in us.
High five, Noelle. – Okay. Oh!
– Oh, that’s good! – (FBE) Well, in this final round,
we’ve got for you three different dishes.
We asked your mom to prepare the dish that she
considers her favorite. So, we’re gonna have you guess
what that is. So, here is option A.
– (Tida) Oh, god. What is this? – (FBE) I’ll give you a hint
and tell you this is a type of pizza, so you can just eat it
like you would a pizza. – It’s so hard. – God. I feel like
this is FBE’s. – How could this be
my mom’s favorite dish? She doesn’t order
Papa John’s like this. – (moms laughs)
– I don’t like thin crust. – Did I get two slices?
Who cares? – What is that? Ew. (gags)
– (FBE) Ew? – Ew?!
– (gags and coughs) It’s so bad.
– It’s really good pizza. – Yeah.
– (Y) Good job, Soph. – How is it real good?
It’s hard. – (FBE) Sophie, you’re really
not a fan of this one. – I love it.
What are you talking about? – (FBE) Do either of you
think that this could be your mother’s favorite dish? – No.
– Definitely not. My mom wouldn’t make this.
– My mom doesn’t like flat bread. – I don’t know!
– No! This is horrible!
– No! – If we had ate out and got this,
she would’ve told me the man, “Excuse me, ma’am,
can you come take this away?” And I would’ve,
’cause it’s hard as a brick! – It’s like some sort of
like bad, like, pesto? I think it’s like pesto.
– I bet, Sydney, if we took off our blindfolds,
it would’ve looked moldy and nasty and wrinkled and ugh!
– (gags repeatedly) – (FBE) Remember, you might be
insulting your mother right now. – Who cares?! This is horrible!
– (Sydney laughs) – (FBE) Here is your next dish.
– (Y) Mm-mm-mm. – Ew. This feels weird.
– It smells like a corn dog. Oh, god. What is this?
Is this an octopus? – (gags)
– Come on. You’re– – I gagged!
– You didn’t even bite it. – It’s spicy.
It’s chewy. It’s spicy. It’s weird.
– What is this? I’m scared. – (spits)
– What is it? – Now, now, children,
this tastes horrible. – It’s like calamari
but squishy and wah! – It’s horrible.
– That was disgusting. Mom, what are you eating?
– Give me the throw up bucket, ’cause I just tasted B-U-T! Okay?
– B-U-T-T. No, two Ts. – (FBE) Well, between this
and the last thing, one of your moms made this.
Do either of you think that this could be something
your mom enjoys? – No.
– Nope. – Mom, if you made one of those,
I’m so disappointed. – I know! I’m disappointed
in both you moms! (fake cries) You poisoned us! I’m traumatized!
– (FBE) Here’s a tasty one. This is some toast
with a little something extra on it. – Is that jam? (gags)
– Yeah, it’s not jam. It tastes gross.
– (gags) – Ooh, this tastes like medicine!
– Is this Vegemite or something? My mom would never eat Vegemite.
Mom, which one are you eating? These are so bad!
– (FBE) So, if your mom made this, what would you say to her
about her cooking? – I would say to her…
– You suck. – (moms laugh)
– I know in my brain this is disgusting.
– What is it, Noelle? What’s the matter?
– It’s disgusting. I’m disappointed in all of y’all!
– (FBE) So, in this final round, between A, B, and C–
this is for the win– which do you think
was made by your mother? – A.
– (unsure) B. – A. Gut feeling.
– C. – (FBE) Both of you
got it wrong again. – We lost together!
– Thank you! Thank you! – We lost together!
– Yes! – Both got it wrong? Who cares!
That was disgusting! – (FBE) All right, guys.
You could take your blindfolds off, because we have a confession to make.
– What? – (FBE) This episode is actually
going to be released on April Fool’s Day.
– (moms laugh) – So, no, your mom did not make
any of these dishes. We pranked you. – Let me throw this at you!
– I knew it! I knew it! I’m literally so smart!
– (FBE) Let me tell you what you just ate,
because you were partially right. So, in the first round,
we gave you pasta that was covered in sugar, then pasta covered in salt,
and then you were eating pickle juice and Alfredo sauce.
– Mm, that was good! – (FBE) In the second round,
we gave you guys cake. It was the exact same cake
all three times. – Yes! We knew it!
They all had sprinkles on the side! – I lit– I–!
– All the cakes were the same, Noelle. – You know what? I am done.
– (FBE) You guys found little nuances between them.
You guys were like, “No, this one is more of this
and more of that.” – More of a bundt–
the bundt cake. – (FBE) Yeah, “This one–
no, the first one was a bundt cake.
This one has icing.” – I know. Bundt cake–
I figured it out in the end. – (FBE) And then, in the final round,
what you got was a blue cheese and anchovy pizza.
What you were trying in that second round
was oysters. And then, finally,
you had wheat toast with Vegemite. – (gasps) Vegemite? No!
– I’m disturbed at all of you guys. – That’s so rude.
That’s just plain rude. – My taste buds are dead
because of you. – Your tummies should be
nice and full now. – No.
– Oh, yeah. – This was a horrifying experiment. – Thanks for watching

everything we do starts with you. – Hello everyone, I’m Mike, this is Baz. Welcome to fridge cam. – Now, everybody loves to snack. – Especially if your
name is Jamie Spafford. – And in today’s episode, we explore healthy snacking food trends and see if they’re any good. – Disclaimer, this video
contains some shocking food puns. (upbeat music) – You guys evidently
enjoy and keep asking us to review certain products. This is our first look
at a handful of them. I’ve picked a number of
“healthy” snacking products. – For today, we’ve got our chef James and a normal, Mike, to
test out these products. – I don’t know if I
even unhealthily snack, except for maybe some
chocolate in the evening. – I get really hungry between meals so I have to think about
what I’m gonna snack, otherwise I’m just gonna eat bad stuff. – But you’re thiccer than me,
like two Cs, thiccer than me. – Yeah. – So. – What, booty-wise? – Well, just everything, like, (Barry laughs) pick a muscle, you’re
thicker than me at it. (upbeat music) – Number one. Lift the cloche. Should say straight off,
snacking may also include drinks. – (laughs) Can you snack on a coffee? – Food and beverage that you might consume outside of meal times. – Okay, okay. – Caveats already. It’s a very small packet. There’s not a lot going on in there. – This packet here is
only filled up to there. – There’s a gram. – Oh, it says one g on it, doesn’t it? – Yeah, it’s a gram. – I thought you were doing that by weight. (laughing) – [James] I am a chef. – I thought wow, he can
literally feel grams. – [Barry] It’s Columbian
roasted coffee powder with added red ginseng from Korea. – It’s coffee and additives. – The additive being
ginseng, which has been used for hundreds of years in Chinese medicine and they claim to have a
number of health benefits. And by adding it to your coffee, will give you the vitality
you need for the day. Ginseng is a root and if it’s grown for up to four years, it’s fresh. If it’s between four and
six years, it’s white. If it’s six years or more in
terms of how long it’s grown, then it is red, and that
is therefore the premium. Would you like to make one? – Yes, please. – Yeah. – [Mike] So this is what it looks like. – [James] It smells slightly fruity. (upbeat music) – So it’s not huge in flavour. It tastes earthy. I wouldn’t say it tastes
like coffee, would you? – I like it more than instant coffee. – Yeah, it’s much nicer
than instant coffee. – It tastes like more like tea. – All right Doctor Barry,
tell us the health benefits. – Well before I do that,
can I just double check, are you feeling anything at all? You have any, any effects on you? – You are not a real doctor, are you? – I’m feeling a lot of love. – Okay, so it’s shown to
have antioxidant properties that could help improve brain functions. And but also the one that jumped out to me is it can enhance blood
flow in the penile muscles. – That’s the love I felt. (laughing) – [Barry] Yeah, so it can
strengthen your immune system in people with cancer and
even enhance the effects of certain vaccinations. – And as with all these products, we’re not making any health claims, we’re just sharing what the product is, what they claim to do and look at what those ingredients are. – It tastes fine. – I don’t think I would
drink it for enjoyment. – Red coffee, on the rise? Or a bit of a flop? – What that, what? – No peeking! (laughing) – Honestly, I could
see this being a thing. – I don’t think people will, but at the same time, I
don’t think it’s a flop. As a product, it’s fine. – I think it’s on the rise,
– Have a chat, – come to a discussion. – You think it’s not fully floppy but like somewhere in the middle? – It’s like a semi. – [Mike] There you go. (laughing) (upbeat music) – [Ben] You’ve had your morning stimulus, this is the next one. – High protein brot. It’s a multi-seed loaf in a cup. – Is it, oh, is it bread? No way. – And it’s 25% superfoods. – That is a claim. – [Ben] This is microwave bread in a mug. High protein, 25% superfood and vegan. Fast, substantial, tasty. – I am fascinated about this. I don’t know about it
from a health perspective. But bread in a mug, if
it’s good, like cool. – [Ben] This particular thing provides you with 23 grams of protein per hundred. – So you put the powder
in, 75 mls of water. Oh, it’s really banana-y. – It’s really banana-y. Give it a stir, and then in
the microwave for how long? – Three minutes. (timer beeping) – [Mike] It hasn’t risen. – [James] It looks a little bit sad. – Flop it. Ta-da. – [Mike] It’s very bouncy isn’t it? – [James] Yeah, it’s
just like a dense bread. Like a soda bready type. – [Mike] It is like a soda bread isn’t it? – It looks better on the inside
than it did on the outside. – Seedy, bready, really nice. Cheers. – Cheers. – Instantly you get banana, don’t you? That’s the first thing
– Oh yeah. that hits you, so it’s
very banana-y bread. Then I just get crunches of seeds. – It’s actually quite nice. – Yeah. – I’m super surprised. – It’s dense. It’s stodgy. – It would benefit from something. – They say it goes with anything. So sweet breakfast with honey and jam, noon as a side dish with soup or salad, or for dinner with a hearty
topping of cheese, egg, ham, and the alike. – Absolutely. – It’s honestly not bad. – 20 grams of protein in
this is actually quite a lot. So if you’re looking for
something high protein, sort of lowish carbs I
guess that fills you up and it’s tasty in under five minutes, then I’d say this is brilliant. – You can keep it in the cupboard. – [Mike] Yeah. – And it’s literally
like it is instant bread rather than buying six rolls
and having some of them go off. Come on Ebbers, let’s have a good one. – Let’s have a good one. – Is this microwave hello or wave goodbye? (laughing) – That is some of the worst
– No, ones we’ve ever had.
– No, that’s bad. – Sticking with it. – The bread is better than
saying microwave hello. But it’s a wave hello for me. – I would also wave hello to this bread. (upbeat music) – Lift the cloche. – [James] Shrivelled fruit. – I look at this and I’m underwhelmed. Although, – Is this healthy though? Dried fruit is notoriously not healthy. – Yes, it’s just full of sugar. What have we got here? We got dried kiwi and orange. – [James] Pineapple and orange. – Cheers. – This is rind. Keep it real, eat the peel. More fibre, vitamins
and nutrients are packed into the edible outside than
the flesh of the fruit alone but comparative to salty,
sugary, fried snacks, this is a fairly sensible option. – [Barry] How does the rind taste? – The kiwi is like eating sour sweets. – Yeah, tangy. – In a good way. – The orange is like marmalade. It’s bitter, so it’s
not just a hit of sugar, Which is really nice. It’s got all sorts of stuff going on. I like it. And there’s a really chewy nice texture. So as a substitute for candy,
sweets, things like that, I can see it really being useful. – Provides a sugar hit, but I’d have trouble
eating the whole pack, which is probably a good thing. ‘Cause I think like the
trouble with dried fruit is that it is very sugary. It’s probably good for
like getting a sweet hit. – Yeah. – Instead of something like chocolate. – Doctor Barry, could you tell
us about the health benefits? – [Barry] So fruit rinds on average contain three to four
times the fibre content compared to a serving of flesh alone. Fibre not only makes a
snack more satisfying, but high fibre diets are
linked to less heart disease, improved gut health, lower cholesterol, and lower obesity rates. – What I particularly like about this one is it’s not just the ‘inverted commas’ healthy benefits, it’s also the food waste. So the amount of fruit
and veg that’s thrown away and a lot of that is the peel
that we wouldn’t normally eat. So not only you saving that, which Mother Nature’s gone
through the effort of grow, you’re also getting health
benefits of the fibre and the antioxidants. – Ask the question. – Okay then, are you loving the rind? Or should we leave it behind? – I think it’s a great product. I’m gonna say loving the rind. I think the general public
might leave it behind, however. – Oh, I’m loving the rind. I think it’s good. (upbeat music) Oh, what on earth is that? – Oh, it’s a little heart on a stick. – A TeaPop? What’s a TeaPop? – Oh my goodness. – This is silly. – Mine’s lemon and ginger,
what flavour is yours? – Mine is passion fruit punch. – Gourmet tea, 100% natural tea made easy. Dissolves in water. Each TeaPop is made
from natural extraction of all the goodness from loose
leaf tea, fruits and plants formed into a crystallised pop to provide the perfect brew in each cup. – [Barry] At TeaPop, we
believe there is a better way to enjoy quality tea. A more easy, fun and fuss-free experience where a consumer can
enjoy their favourite brew wherever their heart desires. – [Ben] This is a long collaboration with Chester University to
create this bag-less tea, and it’s supposed to be
yeah, fun and an experience. – Oh, yours smells amazing. Mine does not. In it goes. (upbeat music) Oh. – Oh, it goes fast. – This was a product sent to us by Amanda. She thought it would be good
for us to have a look at. So I bought some. – I’m getting the delicious combination of lemon and ginger coming through now. That smells amazing. – I think it tastes nice. It’s sweet and then ends bitter, soury. – The same here. You get ginger, not getting
a huge amount of lemon, and then it sort of tails off and tastes similar to the
bitterness that you get from a loose leaf tea. – I think you get the flavours and then you get the tea afterwards. – Sort of thing I can imagine
seeing in a boutique-y hotel there like a, yeah, something
a little bit different. – It’s a gift, isn’t it? – It is a bit fun, absolutely. – [James] It’s 100% a
gift for a tea lover. – I definitely think it’s very
Instagram friendly as well. And the video we’ve seen from the brand, you know, the videos look good
because of the shapes before and the process of stirring. What about if I told you
that each one works out at one pound 50? – Oh, that is. – [Ben] So nine pounds for that tube. – [James] 100% one off gift. – That pricing for me is
just a complete turn off. – Would you pop it like it’s hot? Or drop it like it’s not? – Yes!
– Oh no! We’re back! Well done mate, that is cracking! I would drop it like it’s not. – I would also drop it like it’s not. We see a lot of these things
that are good products, but just unnecessary. (upbeat music) – [Ben] The fifth and final one for today. – Are they nuts? – They’re nuts covered in cacao. – They are exactly that. Nuts covered in cacao. But I want to know what nut? – Interesting, ’cause I was
instantly gonna say brazil nut. – It looks like a cross
between a brazil nut and an almond. – Vogue called it the
delicious healthy nut you’ve never heard of. – It tastes like a praline. – Wow, and they are delicious. It just melts in your
mouth, it melts away. – They are crunchy, but
then as soon as you sort of crack ’em, they just
dissolve into deliciousness. – I think the closest nut
would be a macadamia nut. This is a naughty snack. This is not healthy. – This can’t be healthy. – So these are called pili nuts. – [James] Pili. – [Mike] Pili. – [Barry] They’re used in Filipino cooking. They’re often added to cooking and baking in its roasted form. They give a sweet, bitter
flavour and a velvety texture. – The pili nut is grown on
trees in the nutrient rich soil surrounding the Mount Mayon volcano. This is a healthy snack product
that has four ingredients. Pili nuts, Ecuadorian
cacao, yes, it has salt, and yes, it has sugar. But it is the nut that is
kind of the focal point here, albeit the other ingredients
are well-sourced too. – That deserved the Great Taste
Three-Star Award from 2018 that it was awarded,
’cause they taste amazing. They’re sprouted nuts, which we know activation means that you get
all the nutrients within them. So I can see how its made the H word. – They are absolutely delicious. – It tastes like it should
be really high in sugar. – That’s the thing, like
it’s a genuine substitute to a chocolate bar. – You get the sweetness
that you’re looking for. – The other thing that
is important here is it is complete protein, so all of your essential amino acids provided. One of the highest sources of magnesium, and also really high in phosphorus, which is good for bone health. Considered second most
important behind calcium. – That’s genuinely new to
me, and I really like those. They are delicious, and they taste like they
should be far worse for you. (laughing) – So they are very, very difficult
to get hold of in the UK. And I think this comes to why
they haven’t really scaled and they’re new to us is
because of where they’re grown and they are difficult to scale. However, I picked up those bags in LA, when we were last there. And they were about $4 a bag. – That’s how much I expected it to be. – Yeah. – It’s not like, jaw-dropping amount. – As with all of these, I wouldn’t eat them for
their health benefits. The health benefits are a
nice bi-product to them, if they are delicious. – Okay then. A great product or not? – Or not? – Nut, nut.
– Or nut? – It’s all in the delivery! – Wow, we’ve given up haven’t we? – It is a great product. – Yeah, it’s a great, great product. And it’s completely new to me. Really delicious. So which of those, if any,
do you think will take off? Comment below. – And don’t forget to send us your ideas for future products. – We have also created a
playlist with all of our Food Trend reviews that you can watch by clicking the link in the description. Go binge. – As always, until next time, goodbye. – [Mike] Goodbye. – [Baz] See you on Sunday, 4 p.m. – We’ve also built the Sorted club, where you can get tonnes of foodie inspo using the Packs midweek meal app, discover and share
restaurant reccommendations using the Eat app, listen and contribute to our

cookbooks you’ll receive throughout the year. Check it all out by
heading to sorted.club. (upbeat music) and now a blooper. – We’ve got Mike and Jamie here, a chef at a normal
– This is James. – [Ben] That’s James. – It’s only 12 years, mate. You were rehearsing in
the mirror last night and you didn’t expect
James instead of Jamie. (laughing) – Clip that together. That’s the blooper right there.
