– 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, but for now we congratulate Mrs Field's, you got a dang good cookie – And me, the Captain of Cookies – Thank you for liking, commenting, and subscribing
