Blind Grocery Store Salsa Taste Test

– Which salsa should you dip your chip in? – Let's talk about that (groovy electronic music) – Good Mythical Morning

– Joining us today is the Eva in My life As Eva, YouTuber extraordinaire Eva Gutowski Welcome to the show! – Hello! You have to clear something out of your throat? (Rhett grunting) – He's like– – Welcome to the show, Eva – You need to clear your throat too? – No I'm good, I still have my– ♪ Let me clear my throat ah-na-ah-na-ah-na ugh ♪ – I still have my youth in me – Oh you think it's 'cause I'm an old man – Oh that's what it is

(laughs) She got you – I gotta clear my throat Okay – Eva saw me this morning– – Let's change the subject from my voice– – She was like what happened to your hair? – I swear last time I saw you, your hair was not gray at all – Yeah

– Yeah, well it's been awhile – He aged like a president – Yeah (Link grunting forcefully) – YouTube's really got ya stressed (Link grunts) – Oh, you wanna get into that? – Okay how do you feel about salsa? – You know, salsa and I have a love-hate relationship

If it's spicy, I love it but if it's like mole salsa– – Oh – Okay – I can't do mole, I'm sorry – Okay well no mole here – But I do like salsa

– All right so you're opinionated, I think that's good for what we're gonna do Of course Cinco de Mayo's comin' up so that means if you didn't pay your rent you're four days late – Yeah – But it also means– – Uh-oh – In that love-hate relationship you gotta skew towards love because lots of salsa is gonna be consumed

– Yeah, yeah – So we are gonna determine the best salsa that you can get off the shelves right now It's time for we're prepared-ay to taste this verde We want to know-ha what's the best roja? Hey former California Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante, we're about to name the best picante (chuckling) That's about as political as we get around here

– Okay here's what we're gonna do, we're gonna be tasting salsas blindly, we're not gonna know what they are but the brands we'll be tasting in no particular order are: Frontera, Tostito's, Newman's Own, La Victoria, Pace, and Whole Foods 365 – You sure that's not Pachay? – Well you wanna call it Pachay? – No, Passay, Passay? – Pace – Pace – Like paso doble – I don't know, I don't know

We're gonna rank them each on a scale of one to 10 That's the only thing I do know We're gonna combine our scores and then in the end, we will crown the best salsa and that salsa will win a kiss from each of us – Oh that's weird – I don't know about his throat clearing

Maybe he goes last – I'm not sick! – Kisses last – I'm just like– – Okay, and for the purpose of consistency, we're gonna be using all chunky mild variations No mole – And no spicy

– That is what is the best-selling flavor on Amazon All right let's salsa – [Rhett and Link] Round one – All right we've got what we don't know brand here and I don't know what chips these are either but they will be consistent And again even though you may like spicy, the mild is the best-selling and we can focus on the taste and then infer that spice would only help

– Hmm – Hmm – It's a pretty thin salsa – Yeah, yeah – I mean, they may say it's chunky but– – [Link] Sure let's double dip

– [Rhett] I found a chunk – This is giving me like college frat party vibes – Is that a good thing? – I mean not frat, like frat barbecue – Frat barbecue, a little inebriated perhaps But not too much

– No – It does feel a little cheap, doesn't it? – Yeah it feels like a college student picked that up to be nice – Which is I guess why I love it – And now they can't afford their textbooks – I do, I like it, I like it

– I like it – Ain't nothing wrong with it but– – It wasn't bad – Nothing's really, it's not making a statement – It's super simple, it's a little thin for me There's nothing horrible about it

I'm gonna give it a six on a scale of one to 10 – I as well, six – Oh! – I would give it a four – Ooh – Okay, a little salsa critic

– I'll give it a five, I'll give it a five – No hey hey– – No give it a four Stick with a four – Go with your instinct – I mean it's not bad, it's not learning towards bad, it's just really not special

– But you wanted to say four Don't let us influence you – Four – There we go – All right four

– [Rhett] And that's a total of 16 – [Rhett and Link] Round two – Look at this one, it's got some chunk to it – This one's looking better – Yeah, definitely chunkier

– [Rhett] Oh that looks nice and thick Doesn't drip back into the– – Oh look at that, it holds on the chip nice – Your chip's not holding together very well though – Oh, very salty, oh – I would say tangier than the previous

– It's pungent – Yeah – Oh I like that – So where the other one lacked a punch, this one's making up the difference Givin' you more to experience which brings my score up

But the taste is kinda the same It's like a punchier version of the previous, I don't know – It's like they just added tons of salt to the old one – It's still salsa – I don't know

I have no clue what it is, it doesn't taste like Newman – This is La Victoria – What does Newman taste like? – Newman's tastes like– – I'll know it when I taste it – But Newman's like, it's got that this is all going to charity vibe – Oh really? – (chuckles) You know what I'm saying? – Newman's gives me like white people buying salsa and they are scared that it's gonna have a little too much kick to it

– (chuckles) You right (Link chuckles) You right – This one's La Victoria – I'm gonna give it a seven 'cause I'm just gonna inch it up the scale – A seven? – I didn't love it that much

– I'm gonna give it a five – I really like this one – Really? – I may have to readjust my scale, but I'm giving this an eight I reserve the right to go above 10 in another round – [Link] Well I think that brings us to a 20

– [Rhett and Link] Round three – Uh-oh – Look, now this one is just so red – It's ketchup Which incidentally, when we went to London, we were given salsa and they gave us ketchup with onions in it

– Ew – Go ahead – So let's– – This looks like it comes in a giant industrial-sized tub – Yeah, this is one of the ones that comes in like a Arizona tea jug – Oh my God, it actually smells like the ketchup

– Oh wow – Yeah – I really, guys, I have like a phobia of ketchup Like I actually do – Well I don't like tomatoes but ketchup's fine with me

You're scared of ketchup? – Yeah – It's not that much different than salsa – This is brave for me – No but you're right – All right

– Looks just like ketchup – [Rhett] This has a very ketchup-y taste – Oh no no no – It's a very, this tastes like London salsa – All right

– Is Tostito's in London? – Oh my God, it tastes like if you order at a restaurant kid's spaghetti and this is what comes on it – Yeah (Link chuckles) I give it a two, it's horrible – This is horrible, this is– – I wanna say one but you never know, it could get worse – Now you thought the last one was La Victoria, but I'm pretty sure this is it

– Really? – Yeah I'm givin' it a two as well – I'm gonna give it a two – That's a bad salsa, y'all – [Link] And that's a total of six

– [Rhett and Link] Round four – Oh look, I can see things in this – [Eva] This one looks nice – [Rhett] It's also darker, doesn't look like ketchup I see actual seeds in there

– Seeds? – That's good – Like seeds from things – And look, I see onions – Seeds is not good, is it? – I like seeds, you're not a seed man? – I like seeds – And it's chunky

– See this is really confusing me now 'cause throughout all the brand names, this looks good and I just don't know which one it is – It's darker Let's see if the taste is spooky – Kinda sweet, why is it sweet? – Man, it looks great It does not taste good

– Why's it sweet? – It's really sweet but– – It's also spicy – It's spicy The seeds – Yeah, yeah For this to be a mild to be this spicy, boy, I'd hate to meet spicy on the street

Hello, my name is Spicy, ooh – I really– – That's how the conversation would go I would say ooh (chuckles) – It tastes fakey at the beginning – Yeah, it gets better as you keep going

– I do appreciate the effort they put into the spice It looks good, it ends good, the middle is real bad – Three – It's like my life – I'm gonna give this a six

– Oh you like this one kinda? – I mean– – You like spicy – Yeah, but the sweet is just no – I'm going with a three – Yeah – Three

– That brings us to a total of– – 12 Round five – Here it is – Wow This one's got like little, like black things in it like it burnt some peppers in there which that's good

– [Eva] That looks nice – It's also very, very bright – It's like a restaurant experience – This is like a nice one, like a homemade restaurant one I'm gonna get a little black thing in my chip

– It smells like tomato sauce though – Oh it does – Just straight up Boyardee – It does, it smells like canned soup – No

There's a smokiness to it You know me I'm a smoky man, I like a smoky plan – Oh there's the smokiness but it's too sweet – You (chuckles), I don't taste sweetness at all

– Really? – I only taste the smoky It's like someone just– – Going in again – It almost tastes water– – Smoked a cigarette and just infused it (inhales) – Does it almost taste watery with a little smoky, like smoky water? – Yeah it's like a damp cigarette – Hold on but just give ti a chance for a second 'cause a lot of people like, for me being one, like that smokiness of a, I don't know what it is

It's almost like a Chipotle I think there's a strong Chipotle flavor in there – It's like a tomato mezcal – Tastes like you made Chef Boyardee, dipped a cigarette in it– – With some mezcal – It's not my favorite, I gave an eight to my, it's not as good as the one that I said was the best

I like the smokiness but other than that– – Are you going big? – It's not doing, I'm going with a seven – Okay – So pretty good but not incredible – I don't like smoky Unless it's with the bandit

(chuckles) so I'm gonna give this, I gotta give this a two as well I just don't like it – Oh come on – I'm giving this a three – [Rhett] And that brings us to 12

– [Rhett and Link] Round six – Now this one has little black little checks in it I don't know if that's pepper or– – [Link] Black checks? – You know, black spots, and this might mean that– – You said that about all of 'em almost – No, the last two – Oh gosh, what's happened? – You lost your chip in there

– I'm like, I'm like– – Oh! – This is so chunky, look how chunky it is – This one smells like tomato sauce too – Man I would have never thought that salsas could be so different – This one is very, almost sour, am I right? – There's something strange happening here

– Why are you laughin'? You think I'm just makin' this up? – I just don't know what this is – Oh, this is Newman Newman in a jar – And then it almost fizzles out with no taste whatsoever – Yeah it really is so mild on the end

– On the end of it it's like you just got saucy water – You're like was I eating salsa? – This is the last one and we've been really hard on these salsas, like nothing has met our standard of salsas, like what are we doing? – This is a no – I could still eat the whole bowl – I'm actually fine with this one – And that goes with all of them

– No I can't – This reminds me how much I don't think about the food that I'm eating whenever I'm at a party, I'm just like Somebody's like, you know, that was actually dog turds Oh! (Link chuckles) It was in a salsa bottle – No matter what salsa ultimately shows up at the party, I'm gonna be eating that salsa

– Right, you acclimate to the salsa – Yeah yeah – I give it a six – I give it a five – I like it

– Give it a five – I give it a four There's no taste in that – That's a 15 And Stevie? – [Stevie] Okay so if we come in– – What does that bring us overall? – [Stevie] The weird thing is, if this had been a brand guessing game, Link, you're on it for some reason

Like you were gettin' it But the salsa– – Victoria, Newman – [Stevie] To shun is La Victoria You guys gave that a six – Show that La Victoria, guys, toss it over here

– Yeah that was real bad – [Stevie] But you're gonna be kissin' up on the Tostito's brand salsa– – Really? – [Stevie] 'Cause you gave that a score of 20 – Boom, so worst and best I think you wanted La Victoria to be good, so you can have that – Ew! – But see, it is watery

– Was this the one that was like tomato salsa? – Yep – Yeah – Gross – Congratulations Tostito's You are the winner, and let's kiss it

You wanna go first 'cause of, well– – Oh gosh, oh my gosh – I couldn't see it from my angle but– – Well she used her tongue – All right I guess I'll use mine too (Eva squeals) (Rhett laughs) I used to do that to the shower wall in middle school
