Hot Snack Attack Showdown

  • - What's the spiciest snack on the shelves?
  • - Lets talk about that.
  • (playful theme music)
  • Good mythical morning.
  • - Hot snacks are very popular these days.
  • There was even this hot Takis challenge
  • that allegedly sent kids to the emergency room,
  • because it got in their little kid stomachs
  • and burned their little kid stomach linings.
  • - We're not little kids, we're big grown men,
  • we got big strong
  • stomach linings. - Stomach linings.
  • - How'd you know I was gonna say that?
  • - 'Cause there was a pattern between what I said
  • and what you said.
  • - Jinx.
  • Our stomach linings are strong and big.
  • They're not gonna pitch a fit over some corrosive
  • ingredients in these hot snacks.
  • That's right, it's time for Super Snack Death Match.
  • - Hot Snack Edition.
  • Okay, so we are going to determine the spiciest snack
  • that you can get off the shelves.
  • I mean there might be some totally obscure thing
  • that is just not at your fingertips,
  • but these are the ubiquitous spicy things.
  • - Readily available snacks, okay.
  • - And we're gonna do this in tournament style,
  • because scientifically speaking,
  • - Tournament style's the best way.
  • - That's the best way to do it, man.
  • You take two, you taste both, you see which one
  • is the spiciest, it moves on to the next round.
  • Let's determine the spiciest.
  • (rock guitar riff)
  • - Okay, for round one over here I've got
  • Andy Capp's Hot Fries.
  • - And I have got Cheetos Extra Extra
  • Flamin' Hot Crunchy Cheetos.
  • Basically, these are the hottest of flamin' hots
  • that the Frito-Lay brand puts on all types of stuff,
  • most ubiquitously Cheetos themselves.
  • - Right, so if you're like, where's all the other
  • flamin' hot stuff, all the flamin' hot stuff
  • - They're beneath this. - Is the same.
  • Well it's the same stuff, if it's exxtra flamin' hot,
  • that's as hot as it gets.
  • - Let's taste the Andy Capp first.
  • - Now this was around when we were kids.
  • This was like the one hot snack that I remember
  • that you could get in the '80s.
  • - Yeah, there's nothing like comic strips to make me hungry.
  • Andy Capp. - Have you ever
  • read the comic strip? - No.
  • - Have you ever even seen it, besides on there?
  • - No. - You know, these
  • are corn and potato. - Wow.
  • It is (coughs), it's hot.
  • They call 'em hot fries for a reason.
  • - I mean I ate these as a child.
  • - I've never eaten these, because I don't like hot things.
  • And I'm not gonna apologize for it.
  • - Okay, these look a lot hotter.
  • These look like these took a shower,
  • those took a shower and became these,
  • also got a shave, shower and a shave.
  • - This is a real, it's almost purple it's so red.
  • It's gotta be hotter than that.
  • - Oh, it's got a roll,
  • got a rolling hotness, call that a rolling hotness.
  • - Yeah, you eat it a little bit, and then it,
  • it's making my nose tickle.
  • - That seems, clearly hotter.
  • But I'm gonna go back to Andy Capp,
  • 'cause I don't wanna sell him short.
  • He's been through a hard time.
  • That tastes like fish food now, tastes like nothing.
  • Tastes like it's got no spice at all.
  • These, easily the winner of round one.
  • - Oh yes, very hot and sneeze-inducing almost.
  • (rock guitar riff)
  • - Okay, for round two, I've got Takis Fuego.
  • - [Link] Oooh, is that the one that sent
  • the kids to the doctor?
  • - Yes it is, straight to the doctor.
  • - And I've got Jack Links Hot XXL Beef Stick.
  • - A hot beef stick, huh?
  • - Sounds more like an adult movie than a snack,
  • but I'll taste it.
  • - Now, you recall team during our recent trip to Six Flags
  • over California is what I like to call it, Magic Mountain.
  • There was a whole roller coaster sponsored by Takis Fuego.
  • A whole freaking roller coaster, that's what I love
  • about Six Flags, is they'll name a roller coaster
  • after a potato chip.
  • - Man, and it's got a strong scent to it.
  • - That's a good flavor,
  • - There's a very - Takis Fuego.
  • - There's a striking lime flavor, it makes it not taste hot.
  • - No, it builds. - Oh there it is.
  • - It's your second Taki where it really hits you.
  • Get your second Taki, get a second Taki.
  • Tell me I'm wrong about that second Taki.
  • - You are not wrong about the second Taki.
  • - Now let me try your beef stick.
  • - There's a beef stick.
  • That doesn't smell great to me.
  • - I haven't eaten one of these in years.
  • - Did you get the spicy ones, though?
  • - Oh yeah, I got Little Chubs, remember those?
  • - Those little toes floating around in a jar?
  • - No, the little red sausage that's floating in vinegar
  • and it's in like a little package,
  • - Floating in vinegar, yeah, oh in a pack.
  • - I would get that, and it was a sealed pack, man.
  • Little Chub, hot Little Chub.
  • That was my best little friend.
  • - It doesn't look like it's gonna be as spicy.
  • Whoa, whoa, daddy-o, this is a lot hotter than that.
  • - You must have hit in a hot spot.
  • - Yeah, take another bite.
  • - Is it your second beef stick where
  • I really start feeling it?
  • - Yeah, this one you get the lime moment
  • and the spice moment that comes afterward,
  • but I'm telling you, this is beating it out.
  • - Yep, you said that.
  • - You're not convinced?
  • - This is a really, really tough one,
  • but I think that what I'm feeling now is that
  • these have a very high initial heat quality.
  • This thing builds to an almost unbearable level.
  • - Yeah, makes my nose is running.
  • - 15 to 20 seconds after consumption, and I think
  • if you're going for ultimate heat,
  • I think the beef stick takes it.
  • - I agree.
  • (rock guitar riff)
  • - Okay for this round we've got Doritos Flamas.
  • - And boy they look hot.
  • Now I have the Pringles Loud Salsa Fiesta,
  • bold flavor, epic crunch.
  • You know what, I'm gonna do two
  • just to kind of like really hit it.
  • Lime right off the bat.
  • - Still definitely a Dorito.
  • - So it's a very similar sensation to the Takis
  • of the previous round, hits hard with the lime,
  • and then it's a question of how much of the heat's
  • gonna roll in afterward.
  • - Not that hot.
  • - That's what I'm feeling.
  • - Let's try your Pringles over here.
  • - [Link] I'm feeling this Loud.
  • - Also pretty weak.
  • - I'm tasting mostly chip with this one.
  • You know when you're not getting flavor,
  • but you're getting to the Pringle essence very quickly.
  • There's not a lot of hotness going on here.
  • - These are both kind of weak.
  • This is definitely hotter than that, though,
  • after a second taste.
  • Doritos takes this round.
  • (rock guitar riff)
  • Okay, moving right along, in this round I've got
  • Hawaiian Kettle Style Potato Chips Mango Habanero.
  • - Oh yeah, she's dancing.
  • And I got the Snak Club Hot and Spicy Peanuts,
  • may be spicy, I don't know.
  • - So hot it knocked the C right our of your snack.
  • - Let's try this first.
  • - Now we'll just make some observations about this lady.
  • She's pretty hot, and she's got a volcano behind her,
  • and there's also a sun in the picture, three hot things
  • on the package. - Lot of hot things, yes.
  • Now I expect some mango.
  • - The mango's strong.
  • - Lot of sweetness right off the bat.
  • I love a good kettle chip, whoo, something just happened.
  • It just got hot.
  • - It comes real strong.
  • - It's hitting the back of my throat like a--
  • - Boy it goes deep, doesn't it?
  • - It's all the way back there.
  • - Whoa, how did it get back there,
  • how did you get back there lady?
  • - It's hot.
  • - She snuck to the back of my throat.
  • - It is hot back there, right?
  • - She snuck to the back of my throat and did a little,
  • did a little dance in the back of my throat.
  • - So you, too, are experiencing the same
  • back-of-throat hotness as me?
  • - Now you're talking about me and the lady, you two?
  • I mean I'm not that close to her.
  • - I'm in this. - That's hot.
  • Here we go.
  • - Yeah, I'm hurting a little bit,
  • and burping a little bit.
  • Throw some of these down.
  • - Whoa, I may have done one nut too many.
  • - These are kind of hot, too.
  • This is a deadly combination.
  • - Man! - And I'm gonna
  • tell you right now, these are some spicy nuts,
  • but once you make peanut butter in your mouth,
  • it squelches it.
  • - These are way hotter, way hotter.
  • There's no peanut butter in it.
  • - You're right man.
  • - You've done it again.
  • - She has done it.
  • (rock guitar riff)
  • - Okay now we're moving on to previous winning rounds.
  • We're back with the Cheetos Exxtra
  • Hot Flamin' Hot on this side.
  • - Again, they look very hot.
  • Oh, and they still taste good.
  • It's immediately hot, the slow burns on these other ones,
  • including potentially the meat stick.
  • - It's not that bad.
  • - It's not that bad, but it's immediate.
  • So I think you might feel like it's hotter
  • than it actually is, because it doesn't even
  • have to build, it's just bam.
  • - I need a little bit of ice cream in between now,
  • 'cause I want to be really accurate
  • when we move into these rounds.
  • - Yeah, this is important.
  • - People depending on us being right, being scientific.
  • - It takes a thorough chewing of the innards of the beef
  • stick before swallowing to experience full spice.
  • - I really miss beef sticks.
  • - This thing took Takis down, beef stick tackled Takis.
  • - Here it comes. - And there it is.
  • It takes about that long, and then it really,
  • it's just like cresting a hill.
  • - It's like when you hit the wall, when you're on
  • the exercise bike.
  • - I've never been on an exercise bike
  • - Holy moly. - in a sincere capacity.
  • - Man! - I tell you,
  • it just, once you crest it.
  • - How do they get it in there?
  • - There's another hill.
  • - How did they get it in there?
  • - It's in there, I don't know.
  • - What did they do?
  • - This wins. - Man, beef stick
  • takes it again. - Beef stick
  • done it twice, y'all.
  • (rock guitar riff)
  • - Okay now we have every reason to believe
  • that the dancing Hawaiian lady is going to take this round,
  • as well, but let's give Doritos a chance.
  • - [Link] I mean the packaging is pushing it hard.
  • - I'm laying it on thick, man.
  • - It's a good chip, very respectable taste.
  • - It tastes great.
  • It is hot, it is Flamas, but it's not,
  • it's nothing to write home about.
  • It's not overwhelming. - It's not anything
  • that demands a warning.
  • - Here we go.
  • The first thing you taste is, oh,
  • - I'm afraid of that. - just sweet,
  • it's a sweet mango chip.
  • - Mmhmm, It's like, oh, they put a lei around my neck
  • when I got off the boat.
  • - And then you probably grab another handful,
  • and you're like, oh man, there's no warning on this thing,
  • it's a dancing lady.
  • - Then you're walking to your hotel and you're like, boom!
  • And there she is, dancing a jig.
  • And once she arrives, she's all there is.
  • It wins this round.
  • - Okay, she takes it again.
  • (rock guitar riff)
  • If you had told us, hey man, you know what's gonna make it
  • to the final round?
  • A beef stick and some Hawaiian chips
  • that look like regular chips.
  • - We'd be like (laughing), crazy.
  • - Look at what has happened here.
  • - I have no doubt that these have earned
  • their spot in the final.
  • - There's no red powder on anything.
  • They could just be normal, that's what I love about it.
  • I love the unexpectedness.
  • - It's not about the marketing, it's about the flavor,
  • it's about the spice y'all.
  • - This one just says hot, hot, you know.
  • - This one says tropical heat.
  • - Come on, grab a-- - Tropical heat's
  • not to be messed with, man.
  • - Grab a stick, man.
  • - I didn't even know beef stick was a snack.
  • I've always considered these meals.
  • - It says snack stick on there.
  • - Again, both of these have a delay,
  • which there's something to learn from that.
  • Anything worth being burnt by is worth waiting for.
  • - Wise words.
  • - Starting to hit me.
  • - This one hits earlier.
  • - It does hit earlier.
  • - It hits earlier, and it hits hard.
  • - My stomach is really starting to hurt
  • from the cumulative effects of science.
  • - You wait until about 12 hours from now.
  • - Now we need to go in with something.
  • - Well here she comes.
  • - She hit me early. - She comes around the bend.
  • She comes around the bend, and you hear the bongos.
  • Man, this is so tough.
  • - I mean these are neck and neck.
  • Put a grass skirt on this sausage,
  • and you got yourself a winner, but.
  • - Can you give it to a beef stick?
  • That's the real question.
  • - Can we in clean conscience?
  • - It just feels wrong to give it to a beef stick.
  • - I think this is edging it out a little bit.
  • Oh, she keeps shaking it.
  • - Yeah, but then when you add him on top of her.
  • - I'm out man, I'm out.
  • I know that this is my vote,
  • only by like a five percent margin.
  • - Okay, let me just one last one.
  • - I say it comes out on top.
  • Breathe out, feel that burn.
  • - Man, I tell you, but she always sneaks up behind me,
  • and then she just, - Aloha.
  • - Takes me off guard.
  • It's gotta go with the Hawaiian chips, I can't believe it.
  • - Ladies and gentlemen we have it.
  • The world's hottest snack, according to our
  • collective palates is the Hawaiian Kettle Style
  • Potato Chip Mango Habanero, tropical heat.
  • - Sorry, I didn't mean to do, how did that happen?
  • Let me cover that up with a beef stick.
  • - Yeah, put a beef stick in there.

  • - You know what time it is.
