  • - Okay, that's good. - Okay.
  • - That's good. - Mmm.
  • We ship it.
  • - (laughs) We ship the cheese and hot chocolate.
  • ♪ (accordion intro) ♪
  • - (FBE) This video is sponsored by Brookside.
  • We're sure you've seen some of the very strange food combinations
  • popularized by like celebrities, unique restaurants
  • and adventurous people everywhere.
  • And so we've actually asked our chef to recreate
  • some of these odd combinations and one of a kind
  • delectable gourmet dishes. - Ooh!
  • I like to be open minded to like try new foods.
  • - (FBE) This challenge was inspired by the surprisingly delicious combination
  • of Brookside chocolate, which you'll get to try a little later
  • encouraging you to try new or other surprisingly delicious things.
  • - I love chocolate!
  • - (FBE) And as always, if you eat any of these foods,
  • you get a point.
  • For each point you get, your punishment at the end
  • will be slightly worse.
  • - Oh, okay, so there's a gradual level of worse-ness.
  • - I always get major FOMO, 'cause the food that they keep
  • for the very end is usually the one that you want to wait for.
  • - I don't get that luxury.
  • I always get the worst punishments, not the greatest foods.
  • ♪ (accordion music) ♪
  • - (FBE) For the first combination,
  • we've got a peanut butter and onion sandwich.
  • - Oh no, hell no. Absolutely...
  • - Wait! Cinnamon raisin bread with onions!?
  • - (FBE) To accentuate the flavor combination.
  • This food was popularized by the author Ernest Hemingway.
  • - I don't know about this. - (FBE) ...Mount Everest Special.
  • - I mean that, yeah, right? Like what do we say to that?
  • I think that's the beauty of food, right?
  • Just people can kinda create
  • random things and whatever they want, and it's tailored to their preferences
  • and what works for some doesn't work for others.
  • - (FBE) Alright you guys, who wants to give this a try?
  • - Oh my God, that bread looks, that smells so good.
  • You should smell it. It's like freshly baked.
  • - Should I? - Bread.
  • Whoa, scared me! You went in for that thing.
  • - You should try it. - I should?
  • Ugh, I can't say no to you. (laughs) - Aw! (laughs)
  • (buzzer rings)
  • - Mmm, oh wow!
  • - Is it, yeah. - I'm pleasantly surprised.
  • It's like Thanksgiving!
  • - I like peanut butter and banana, that's fun, this is awful.
  • - Probably won't be super tempted. (laughs)
  • - Oh no. - The onions,
  • it's weird that I associate onions with burgers,
  • because I smell a Whopper right now.
  • That's how strong these onions are.
  • Oh, now it smells like... - Yeah.
  • - A locker room. Get it out of here!
  • - Yeah, we're gonna say no to this.
  • (Alberto coughs)
  • - It's a bunch of things that I like and then things that I don't like.
  • - You know, there's also a visual thing
  • when it comes to food,
  • and I feel like definitely does not meet that criteria either.
  • - Sorry Hemingway! I like your books,
  • but not your taste in sandwiches.
  • ♪ (accordion music) ♪
  • ♪ (soft piano music) ♪
  • - (FBE) Next up, we've got kiwi and oysters.
  • - Excuse me? - What?
  • - (FBE) Our amazing chef cooked up a trio of delicious oysters
  • topped with different kiwi concoctions.
  • A kiwi tropical salsa featuring kiwi, pineapple...
  • - That actually could be good.
  • - (FBE) A kiwi ginger mignonette,
  • and kiwi julienne. - Ooh!
  • (gasps) - (FBE) This may seem odd,
  • but these foods actually have very similar aromas,
  • which makes them a natural pairing. - Yeah.
  • - Okay, salsa. - Yeah, see, that's a little bit better.
  • - Yeah, I thought it was just gonna be like wrapped in kiwi.
  • - Yeah, like here you go.
  • - (FBE) France and New Zealand are just two places
  • where you're likely to see kiwi and oyster dishes.
  • - Whoa, that actually looks pretty awesome.
  • - I don't know. - Like, this looks like
  • one of those kind of foods that you pay $10
  • for just the small little sample.
  • - Actually this does kinda look good.
  • - Ooh, they got dry ice on there!
  • Ooh, they made a little lemon thing!
  • - Yeah, honestly, when am I ever gonna have this?
  • - Come on, exactly! - I'm never gonna have this!
  • Okay, so. - Wow, ASMR.
  • (buzzer rings) (laughs)
  • - Yo, this is bomb!
  • - Hey, I wanna try it! - Holy crap.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • (coughs) - Mmm.
  • Wait. - That's really...
  • - That's actually fire.
  • - I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna do it!
  • Here we go, one, two... - Okay.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • - Kiwi and oyster. - I like it.
  • - I didn't expect it.
  • - It's texture friendly. - Yeah, yeah.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • - Mmm. - You tell me.
  • Give me your review, what is that?
  • - This is really good.
  • You can barely taste the oysters, it's just like a really meaty thing.
  • - This one, I'm committing to not eating,
  • 'cause it just does not,
  • I know this is not gonna sit well in my stomach.
  • - I think I kinda wanna pass on this one,
  • it's so pretty, I don't wanna touch it.
  • ♪ (accordion music) ♪
  • - (FBE) Next we have hot chocolate with cheese.
  • This combination is especially popular in Colombia.
  • - Now the hot chocolate looks delicious.
  • - (FBE) Our chef has selected an excellent trio
  • of fine cheeses that pair perfectly with this rich, delicious beverage.
  • (Brayden moans)
  • - (laughs) What was that?
  • - I am interested, I just think the texture
  • is gonna be really strange if the cheese like crumbles into,
  • ew, okay, no. I convinced myself out of it,
  • as I'm saying it.
  • (Jordan gasps)
  • - (laughs) I'm so excited.
  • - We're shook right now.
  • - It smells really good.
  • - It does smell really good. I feel like, mmm.
  • He's giving in, hard pass for me. I'm good on this one.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • (laughs)
  • - Oh baby.
  • The cheese is almost a little melty, so like the thickness of it
  • is starting to like seep across the chocolate,
  • so the chocolate itself is becoming a little richer, a little thicker.
  • I like.
  • - I'm gonna like do it for the both of us.
  • - (gasps) Okay!
  • - 'Cause I feel like then I can report to you.
  • - Okay, okay, let me know, let me know.
  • - You'll have to do it for me for something else, okay?
  • - Okay. - We'll trade off.
  • - Fair enough.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • - Oh, okay.
  • I don't know, there's like a little bit of like saltiness,
  • which is kind of cool, 'cause then it just tastes like...
  • - Okay. - Salted caramel.
  • - Yeah, I love salted caramel. - Hot chocolate.
  • - So I'm gonna like, you know what I mean?
  • - (gasps) Oh my God. You know how to live.
  • - Ooh, it's very hot.
  • (buzzer rings) Okay, that's good.
  • - Okay. - That's good.
  • (buzzer rings) - Mmm.
  • Whoa, my world is changed!
  • We ship it.
  • - (laughs) We ship the cheese and hot chocolate.
  • - You know, when I was watching the video,
  • I thought I could take it, but looking at it,
  • it looks kinda gross, so I'm alright.
  • - I just feel like it's too basic for me to lose something to,
  • so I'm gonna pass on this one. - Yeah.
  • ♪ (accordion music) ♪
  • - (FBE) For our next combination, let's see if you'll be tempted
  • by hot dogs and jelly.
  • Of course, our chef didn't just slather some
  • grape preserves on a wiener, he made an incredible...
  • - The way you said wiener was funny.
  • - (FBE) He made an incredible hot dog Monte Cristo,
  • complete with cheese, a brioche baguette bun and...
  • - Uh-uh stop, I'm eating this. - Yo!
  • - I would literally eat this at home.
  • - The presentation and all of it is unusual,
  • but this is something I think I'd be willing to try.
  • - Yeah, look at that. - Yeah.
  • Should I, I don't even wanna pretend like I'm not gonna.
  • Oh, I don't wanna eat, lose!
  • (smacks lips) I don't care, I'm eating it.
  • This looks so good. (buzzer rings)
  • - She goes straight in, so fast.
  • - Mm-hmm. - It's crazy.
  • - Mmm, mm-hmm, yeah, you gotta try that.
  • - Yeah, okay.
  • (buzzer rings) No, this is bomb.
  • It's kinda like... - Ugh, the jelly's so good.
  • - Grapes and cheese with like a hint of meat.
  • - Hmm. - Ah!
  • - I can't tell what it smells like! I'm still gonna try it.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • - I just like have never thought of making a hot dog sweet,
  • and I think that aspect of it is new and enticing for me,
  • especially for my taste buds right now.
  • And I like that, so I'm probably gonna go home
  • and recreate this and fail miserably, but still trying it.
  • - You know what? I'm sold.
  • I wanna try it! (laughs)
  • (buzzer rings) - Oh no.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • No. Sorry whoever created that.
  • I am not a fan.
  • - This is breakfast! - It's like if you had
  • toast with jam on it. - Yeah!
  • - And then like had like sausage. - Like some sausage on the side.
  • I really like this!
  • I think this is my favorite!
  • (both laugh)
  • - I'm trying this, are you trying this?
  • - I'm not trying this. - I'm gonna try this!
  • - I'm good off this one. (buzzer rings)
  • - I'm not necessarily a fan of the jelly,
  • I could've had this jelly-less, but the flavors work together
  • and then the textures.
  • Now while this is good, I would never order this.
  • ♪ (accordion music) ♪
  • - (FBE) Our next crazy food combination is bananas and pizza.
  • Popularized by Swedish eateries, banana curry pizza.
  • - Did she just say banana curry pizza?
  • - (FBE) Banana curry pizza and banana ham pizza
  • are two popular favorites.
  • - Ooh, that dough!
  • - Look at that dough doe.
  • - (FBE) Each featuring gourmet marinara sauce, a three cheese blend,
  • and both feature black forest ham.
  • - If I don't like pineapple on my pizza,
  • what makes you think I want banana on my pizza?
  • - Same. However, however,
  • this might work.
  • - (FBE) So here is your bananas and ham, as well as your
  • bananas and curry pizza. - Ooh.
  • Banana and, the banana and curry one looks really good.
  • - I'm getting that one.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • - Mmm. (laughs) Yo, this is fire!
  • Mm-hmm. - Yeah.
  • That's really good.
  • It's kinda like dessert on top of cheese.
  • - At first I was not with it, but now I'm just gonna
  • go ahead and just take the L on it.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • It's like a subtle hint of banana,
  • and that's why I don't hate it,
  • but eh, I wouldn't eat it more than once.
  • - I never thought I'd like banana on pizza so much,
  • 'cause I'm used to eating like Hawaiian pizzas
  • with the pineapples in them, but this is way better.
  • - I'm a little tempted.
  • - Yeah, you know what?
  • Like, I'm gonna go for the curry one,
  • 'cause that just sounds like an experience.
  • - Okay, I'm gonna try this one.
  • - Okay cool. - Okay, we'll fail together.
  • - We've got it. (buzzer rings)
  • Oh. - Hmm.
  • - That's interesting. (laughs)
  • The cheese adds like a really good flavor to the banana,
  • which is super weird to think about.
  • - I really liked it.
  • - I was really hoping that the look of the pizza
  • would change my mind,
  • and this is exactly what I didn't want to see,
  • and this is what I'm seeing.
  • - And it doesn't have enough color for me.
  • - I'm gonna say no.
  • - I'm gonna pass on this one as well. - Mm-hmm.
  • ♪ (accordion music) ♪
  • - (FBE) And finally, you'll be trying Brookside...
  • - I tried this!
  • I love, have you tried this before? It's so bomb.
  • - Them things are so good.
  • - (FBE) Brookside dark chocolate.
  • which combines dark chocolate with pomegranate, acai...
  • - I'm a fan! - (FBE) ...and blueberry flavors.
  • - Oh, that's it, oh okay.
  • - We love simplicity.
  • - I am a fan. - I love these things.
  • - Oh, we got both flavors?
  • - Is this pomegranate? - Oh my gosh!
  • - Oh yeah, so I'm having both of these, okay?
  • Mmm. (buzzer rings)
  • - Mmm. - Mm-hmm.
  • - I'm gonna go for these,
  • and then I'm just gonna have one of those afterwards.
  • - Exactly, we already lost.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • - Mmm, oh that's good.
  • - Maybe what I could do is eat both of them at the same time.
  • You know, mix these two flavors and see what it tastes like,
  • 'cause that, I haven't tried before.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • That's actually really good,
  • 'cause the pomegranate's very sour, and blueberry's sweet,
  • and so together, you just have like this really nice mix of both.
  • (buzzer rings)
  • - Mmm. - Mmm.
  • - That's good. - That makes it so good.
  • - Everybody tells me that these are good for me,
  • so I don't feel as bad.
  • - (laughs) This is the kind of chocolate you get gifted
  • for your birthday, and I'm okay with that.
  • I tried some great things today,
  • so I'm kinda not mad at the punishment.
  • - (FBE) So finally, thanks to Hershey's and Brookside chocolate,
  • there is actually no punishment for this episode,
  • and instead you're getting a reward!
  • - No! - Bah, mmm, mmm, we won!
  • (laughs) - Are you okay?
  • - Did they take the punishment for us? They took the punishment for us!
  • - Thank you, thank you Hershey's
  • and Brookside. - Thank you!
  • - (FBE) So since you're brave enough to try all these combinations...
  • - Are you kidding?
  • - Brookside is going to be giving you both a month's worth
  • of free chocolate! (both scream)
  • - Yeah! That's what I'm talkin' about!
  • - I was assuming we were gonna have to do something terrible
  • at the end of this, so this just made my day
  • like A, better with no punishment, then they're like "hey candy",
  • and I'm like "oh hell yeah!" (laughs) - Yeah.
  • - I am just thankful that I'm walking out
  • with a fat W instead of a fat L.
