  • - Today, we pick the ultimate chocolate chip.
  • - Let's talk about that.
  • (upbeat theme music)
  • Good Mythical Morning.
  • - Big news, our studio is frozen.
  • And our first-ever live tour special
  • is available now for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon,
  • and it's gonna hit YouTube and most cable TV providers
  • on Saturday, December 22nd.
  • So, this is our stage show, plus a never-before-seen,
  • up-close-and-personal mini-doc of our creative process
  • and our travels on tour.
  • It's called Rhett and Link's Tour of Mythicality:
  • Live in Los Angeles, pre-order it now.
  • - Yes, now my favorite food
  • is peanut butter on a spoon buried deep
  • in a glass of chocolate milk.
  • Rhett's favorite food is whatever he's currently eating.
  • - Can't argue witH that. - But the only person
  • who matters this month is Santa Claus.
  • And his favorite food is cookies.
  • - Yes, and he works so hard, the least we can do
  • is give the man the best cookies on the market.
  • It's time for,
  • ♪ I did it all for the cookie ♪
  • ♪ Come on, the cookie, come on ♪
  • ♪ So you can take that cookie and rank it one to 10 ♪
  • ♪ Rank it one to 10, rank it one to 10 ♪
  • - Here's how it works, we're gonna blindly taste
  • six rounds of store-bought chocolate chip cookies
  • and then rank them on a scale
  • of one to - 10.
  • - We're gonna take the average of our two scores
  • to determine the best one. - Best one.
  • Alright, we're also gonna be playing against each other
  • to see who can accurately guess the cookie by brand.
  • And whoever guesses the most brands correctly
  • will become the Captain of Cookies.
  • The cookies that we're gonna be tasting are
  • Keebler, - Pepperidge Farm,
  • - Chips Ahoy!, - Famous Amos,
  • - Mrs. Field's, - And Kroger ChipMates,
  • a popular generic brand of cookie.
  • - Alright, let's chocolate them chips.
  • (rock music) - Round one.
  • - As you can see, we can't.
  • - And all of our chocolate chip cookies will be
  • being brought to us on the patent-pending
  • Santa's Sweet Sleigh of Surprise.
  • - Bring in the first one, Santa,
  • Rudolph, run, run.
  • I'm smelling cookie.
  • - Mmm, a sleigh of cookies.
  • - I'm eating like napkin.
  • Oh wow, that's a tall cookie.
  • Oh, I got, I had two in my mouth.
  • - I'm gonna try to talk with a cookie in my mouth,
  • 'cause I can't use my hands.
  • I don't know what why we can't use our hands.
  • - Well, you don't wanna have finger information.
  • - Finger information. - Only mouth information.
  • It's a crunchy cookie.
  • - It's a crunchy cookie. - It's not too crunchy.
  • - Well, now you're not a fan
  • of a crunchy cookie, you complain about how dry
  • it is all the time, but I think that's
  • gonna happen over and over again.
  • - I mean, I like cookie dough.
  • If I had my way, you wouldn't cook a cookie ever.
  • You would just tub it up and consume it.
  • That's not a bad-tasting cookie, though.
  • And I'm trying to factor in girth.
  • - You always gotta factor in girth.
  • - 'Cause some, you know, some are smaller than others.
  • - That was a good mouth width.
  • - This is tough, I have a guess, but I feel like I'm,
  • - Well, we gotta rank 'em first.
  • - Flying blind, oh okay.
  • - It's a good cookie, I like a crispy cookie,
  • I like a soft cookie, I like in-between, you know me.
  • That's a pretty solid cookie,
  • not great, not horrible, I'm gonna say seven.
  • - Six for me.
  • - [Stevie] Ready to guess?
  • - Yep. - Three, two, one.
  • - Chips Ahoy. - Famous Amos.
  • - Chips Ahoy, that's way too big to be a Chips Ahoy.
  • - Really? - Yeah.
  • - When was the last time you had a Chips Ahoy?
  • - Stay out of my business.
  • (rock music) - Round two.
  • - It's not that I don't like a crunchy cookie,
  • I just prefer to soften it in milk before eating it.
  • - I popped that one right in my mouth.
  • - Much smaller cookie.
  • It has a signature flavor.
  • It's very, hold on, there's a hair in mine, what is that?
  • - There's not a hair in mine.
  • Maybe that's not intentional.
  • - It's a Keebler elf hair, I bet.
  • - I could see the logic in that.
  • That's a better cookie
  • In my mind, that's a better cookie, still crispy.
  • - It's got, the chocolate doesn't overwhelm,
  • and so the cookie part actually makes it taste better.
  • I agree, I'm giving this one a seven.
  • - I'm going up, but not too far, to an eight.
  • - Yeah, it's a smaller cookie, but it's taller
  • than I would have expected, hmm, man.
  • - Smaller but taller.
  • - [Stevie] Ready?
  • - Alright. - Three, two, one.
  • - Chips Ahoy.
  • - Kroger.
  • I think this is a generic Kroger.
  • - I think I'm gonna say Chips Ahoy every time.
  • - You go for it, I'd love for you to do that.
  • - I'm gonna get one right this time.
  • (rock music) - Round three.
  • - What I'm learning is that,
  • I'm not good at identifying cookies.
  • I need to eat more chocolate chip cookies.
  • - Maybe they both were Chips Ahoy.
  • See, this is a bigger cookie.
  • - These are oriented differently.
  • I'm gonna have to use my tongue.
  • - It did all fit in my mouth, though.
  • (Link mumbles over cookie)
  • What's happening?
  • (Rhett mumbles over cookie)
  • This is not a good tasting cookie.
  • - You don't like it? - Nuh uh.
  • I'm down in like three territory.
  • - Really? - Mmhmm.
  • It's a bigger cookie, so I don't think it's generic,
  • but it tastes like generic,
  • what I would think generic would taste like.
  • - I can taste something in the consistency
  • that reminds me of something else.
  • - I don't like this cookie,
  • but I am gonna be a little more generous.
  • It started to taste better, I'm gonna give it a four.
  • - It has a really good aftertaste.
  • - Yeah, it got a little better for me.
  • - Think about the way it tastes right now.
  • - It's gone.
  • - I'm gonna say a seven, I don't mind this cookie at all.
  • - Really?
  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • - We differ, man.
  • - Ready for the guess? - Yeah, I think
  • I've got a strong guess on this one.
  • - It's a big one.
  • - [Stevie] Three, two, one.
  • - Pepperidge Farm. - Pepperidge Farm.
  • - Yeah, I feel good about that, because the packaging
  • of a Pepperidge,
  • - I know what - Pepperidge packing.
  • - The farm looks like, but not the cookie.
  • (rock music) - Round four.
  • - I think that the deal is the reason I don't mind
  • a crispy cookie is because I bring
  • the moisture to the experience.
  • You know what I'm saying, that's what spit's for.
  • - Oh gosh.
  • - I mean, it's crispy and then it's--
  • - Well if my spit was milk, I'd be with you, but it's not.
  • I've tried, trust me.
  • - Oh, hold on, totally different
  • flavor pro-, smell profile.
  • - Well, it's more than that, it's soft.
  • Forget your spit, 'cause this one is soft.
  • (Rhett grunts)
  • - Me having trouble.
  • - What's happenin', dude?
  • You going full Cookie Monster over there?
  • - Me having trouble getting to this one.
  • - Don't ever go full Cookie Monster.
  • Now listen, this is my jam
  • 'cause this is a chewy cookie,
  • and I love chewy cookies.
  • In fact, I prefer Chewy Chips Ahoy, which are weird.
  • They even taste weird, and I don't care,
  • because I love the consistency so much.
  • - Hold on, but you cannot deny
  • the fact, especially after having tasted
  • some of those other ones, they use a weird chemical, man.
  • They use a weird chemical to get it to stay soft.
  • - You're right. - You should always
  • be suspicious of something that stays soft.
  • - My world is a little shook, because I love
  • the consistency, but,
  • - It does not taste good, man.
  • - I have to be honest.
  • I never thought I would say this,
  • - Three.
  • It doesn't taste good.
  • - It doesn't taste good.
  • - It tastes like an experiment that went wrong.
  • - Yeah, I'm glad I usually don't eat these
  • with a blindfold on.
  • - Bring the moisture yourself,
  • that's what should on the side
  • of every chocolate chip bag.
  • - I can't believe this, but I'm gonna give it a four.
  • - Ha ha, yes!
  • - And I know what this is.
  • - You've seen the light, Neal!
  • - [Stevie] Okay, three, two, one.
  • - Keebler. - Soft Batch,
  • Soft Batch from Keebler.
  • - Yeah, bro. - My whole childhood
  • I was eating these things.
  • - I know about dems.
  • - The elves knew me personally.
  • - I've avoided 'em for years.
  • - [Stevie] Link, I gotta say, you're coming in a second last
  • in these past two episodes, rounds.
  • - Oh, my guess. - We gotta, it's on the one
  • and then we guess.
  • - You're copying me, that's what's happening.
  • - No, I don't care what he says.
  • I'm not listening to him. Oh really?
  • (rock music) - Round five.
  • - Now I know my answers have been delayed,
  • and they were the same as yours, but I'm not cheating.
  • - Suspicious. - I'm just slow
  • at giving answers, but I'm locked in in my brain.
  • - Well, she's giving you three seconds to say it.
  • - Give me five next time. - You know what,
  • give him five, give him five seconds, Stevie.
  • - Ooh, uh oh, this is also a soft cookie.
  • - Uh oh.
  • - What is this soft cookie?
  • - Somebody else has a soft cookie.
  • Now I know that Chips Ahoy has a soft batch.
  • But I think that they went with what was
  • the best-selling ones from each brand,
  • that was my understanding.
  • And there's no way that soft batch outsells
  • the regular Chips Ahoy.
  • - Well, let's rate how good we think this cookie is.
  • - This is better.
  • - I don't, - Distinctly better
  • than the previous soft cookie.
  • Now, it's still not great.
  • I'm gonna give it a five.
  • I'm gonna go with a solid five, 'cause it's not
  • in the crispiness territory.
  • It has a little chemical-y taste to it,
  • but not as bad as the last one.
  • - You're right, I agree wholeheartedly,
  • but I'm not cheating.
  • I'm gonna give it a six, 'cause I kinda like
  • all of those things, even the slightly chemical-y.
  • - You like the chemicals. - Yeah.
  • - You ready? - Yeah
  • - [Stevie] Five, four, three, two, one.
  • - Chips Ahoy.
  • - Keebler.
  • - Oh, you went with, you doubled up on the Soft Batch?
  • - Yeah, yeah, I know Keebler makes a Soft Batch,
  • I don't think they put soft batch Chips Ahoy
  • in this mix, so I'm just playing strategies.
  • - Nope, nope, nope, got him.
  • (rock music) - Round six.
  • - Okay, please deliver the final cookie of Christmas.
  • Wow, we got caroled.
  • We got cookie caroled.
  • - Wow, whoa.
  • Oh, there's a cookie.
  • - That's a big cookie down here.
  • - Oh man.
  • - This is the biggest cookie.
  • - I don't even need to finish that one
  • to know what it is, hello.
  • - That's a cakey cookie. - Mmhmm.
  • Is there more, oh, hey.
  • - Hold on, this is a tasty cookie.
  • - That's a good cookie.
  • - Wow.
  • - It's got crispiness and softness.
  • - I mean, I'm not gonna say it's a perfect cookie,
  • but I'm gonna give it a strong eight.
  • - I'm gonna give it a nine, friend.
  • - Alright friend.
  • - [Stevie] You want your five or your three?
  • - Probably five.
  • - [Stevie] Five, four, three, two, one.
  • - Mrs. Field's. - Famous Amos.
  • You said Mrs. Field's, Famous Amos, man.
  • - Yeah man, Mrs. Field's. - That's a big ol' cookie.
  • - Famous, he ain't that famous with me, I guess.
  • - [Stevie] Alright, you can remove your blindfolds.
  • So the runner-up for best cookie goes to Famous Amos,
  • and your favorite cookie was Mrs.Field's.
  • - [Link] Ha, that means I got the last one right.
  • - [Stevie] Rhett, you have two correct.
  • - Oh, okay, that's not great.
  • - [Stevie] And Link, you have one correct.
  • - What?
  • What?
  • He only got the last one? - I only got Mrs. Field's?
  • - [Stevie] Correct.
  • - And here, you're the Cookie Captain.
  • It's kinda sideways, man.
  • Now these Chips Ahoy, we didn't even taste.
  • Was that even in the batch?
  • - [Stevie] Chips Ahoy, we can go over it in More.
  • - Alright, we're gonna go over to More,
