Can We Find The Name Brand? (GAME)

– Are our taste buds on brand? – Let's talk about that (funky electronic music) (fire crackles) Good Mythical Morning

– We wrote a novel It's funny, it's scary, it's a labor of love and it's called The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek Pre-order it now at BleakCreekcom – Yes

– We are expanding our brand to include novels – Right And speaking of brands, a 2010 consumer report study found that store brands scored almost as well as name brands in blind taste tests, so the question is, do we really know the taste of our own favorite brands, or are we letting the labels get into our head? – We're gonna put that question to the test with some of our favorite beverage brands It's time for Knock-Off Knockout: Liquid Edition In each round, we're gonna have four clear cups in front of us and one of those cups will have a big name brand that we all know and the other three will have some variety of store brand or less-known brand versions of that beverage

– And our mission is to taste them all, then knock out the knockoffs and pick the name brand and in the end, the loser has to drink a bottle of Josh's original brand cola which we have no idea what's in that (rock music) – Round one – Of these four different colas, we have to find the Cola-Cola or the Coke, if you wanna be brief about it – This is, they all look the same – Yep they do

– I'm gonna start over here – I'll start down here – I'm gonna start, well, you wanna pick a side where we're gonna drink out of? – I'm gonna drink out of the edge Okay So this one right here, let's– – Tastes like a cola

– Yeah it just tastes very cola-y This one and this one are very different Do these? – Those are very different – Those felt very different? – I'm going on the outside of what you just drank, right? I can kinda see– – I was just going right for the front – Mm

Oh wow, oh This one, uh-oh – That one and this one This is gonna be tough But this one down here, I don't even– – It's not, I'm gonna drink it just because

– Huh I mean, I'm knocking that one out I don't even– – Hold on, don't This is a competition, don't tell me what you're doing – I know you know that's not Coke, right? – It might be Coke

– But I don't know This one's got bite – Oh wow

– That one's got the same amount of bite but a little less flavor And this one This one, this one is a little underwhelming – Okay, I feel pretty confident I think we both know that it's one of these two right here because we had a lot of Coke growing up

– I don't know what that is but I think that's Pepsi – Um (clears throat) – Also had a lot of Pepsi growing up Pride of the Carolinas, I'm ready to vote, Stevie – [Stevie] All right, three, two, one

– Nope – Oh ho ho! Oh I put it– – Don't put it in there So we don't agree Mm, why did you go with that one? – Because there was literally something nostalgic that hit me and that might mean that it's something else that I've had but I went with the nostalgia but they were so close, it was very difficult to figure out – Do we find out right now? – [Stevie] Yeah yeah I'm gonna tell you

So keep in mind that this game isn't name brand versus name brand so your guess that one was Pepsi doesn't make sense for the game – Oh, right, there's no Pepsi – [Stevie] But the Coke is in cup number one – Whoa no no! – So you were both incorrect – No no no no

– I'm gonna tell you what all of them are – Oh come on – [Stevie] So that number one cup is Coke The next cup is Sam's Cola from Sam's and Walmart The next one is Juggalo favorite Faygo Cola

– You a Juggalo, man (chuckles) – [Stevie] And then the last one is Shasta – This is the best one! – I thought this was the best, Sam's Cola? – Whoop whoop – Man, I must have had a lot of Sam's Cola as a child 'cause it hit my nostalgia bone (rock music) – Round two

– All right we got four energy drinks One of them is Red Bull Now, have you ever just poured Red Bull out and just looked at the color? – I thought it was blue or something (laughs) – The can's blue – Right, for a reason

– Well, okay – All right I'm gonna drink this urine first – Reaching across, okay – Ooh, that is tart – If you just gave me that, I'd think it was Red Bull

– Ooh, that is a lot sweeter but like with a fake sweetener This one's better than that one – It's more urine-colored, just like this one Wow – This tastes like Mello Yello a little bit

– One and three, very similar – Yeah – That tastes like almost– – Cirtusy – Like a Sprite or something Like a soft drink

– So yeah, one and three are giving me a– – Wow, this is so interesting – These taste exactly the same – I think we're being Punk'd – This is a crapshoot for me This is a crapshoot

– No, these both taste like SweeTarts That's the definitive flavor profile of Red Bull but one of them tastes more like SweeTarts – [Stevie] Okay here we go Three, two, one – Wha-bam

– Whoa really? Wow! – I was literally just guessing 'cause they were identical in my mind – This one tastes like stronger so I'm– – It is darker This bull's a little dehydrated – You're scaring me– with your stabbiness of, you know– – Getting too stabby for ya? – [Stevie] Yeah, you're gettin' real stabby All right the Red Bull is in cup number three

– Woo! – Oh! – Yeah! – And the other cups contain Red Thunder, GURU, and BAWLS – [Both] BAWLS – BAWLS don't taste like Red Bull – Ballz with a Z (rock music) – Round three

– Of all of these grapefruit flavored fizzy waters, which one is the pamplemousse LaCroix? Or La-kwah? I drink a lot of this one – Hmm, yeah, I do too (Link smacking lips) Straight out the can We have almost like a dispenser in the top of our refrigerator just constantly just rolling out pamplemousse LaCroixs – Smell that and it kinda stinks but then you'll realize grapefruit stinks

– But it's a good stink – It's a good stink It's like drinking some tof, togu One is the most aromatic – Thus far, none of them taste like what I would have thought grapefruit LaCriox tastes like

'Cause I typically don't drink it in a glass – I know and you typically don't think about it when you're drinking it, you just drink it – Yeah, if you start thinking about what it tastes like when you drink it, you'd probably stop drinking LaCroix – Mm-hmm – Don't overthink it

Wow – This is tough – I really confused myself – Would you, do you think there's one that has the most flavor? I think there's clearly one with a higher flavor profile – This one has the most odd, unusual flavor and I don't feel like is representative of what my thoughts are

This one's very strong – One is by far the strongest – Okay I've got a guess – The question is, is LaCroix the strongest though? – I've got a guess – Okay, three, two, one

– Oh, we agree – Okay – It's kind of a blind guess on my part though – These two tasted the most similar to the image I had – [Stevie] LaCroix is in cup number three

– Oh, dang it I almost went there – [Stevie] And the other cups contain Simply Balanced which is Target's brand, Waterloo, and Soleil which is the Safeway brand – Soleil – Soleil has got a good match

(rock music) – Round four – All right we got four sweet tasty orange juices but one of them is Tropicana – I don't know if you can tell through your screen but number four is the lightest and these are like a darker– – Pretty uniform orange – Orange All pulpless I hope

– Would you know what Tropicana tasted like? Did you do Tropicana growing up? – I think I was more of a Minute Maid man Ooh, this is smoother and has a lighter flavor That has a deeper– – Oh those are very different – Yeah this has a deeper– – Tarter – Tarter, yes

– It's gonna give your tartar Mm – This one's– – I like that one though – This one's very drinkable – Drinkable, that's a– – Like it goes down easy

– Put that on your, make that your slogan Drinkable– – Ugh! – Since 1928 – Oh my gosh, you're gonna love that – So you loved it, huh? – It's not even orange juice – You know what this tastes like? – What? – This tastes like the time that we went to the orange tree in our house in our old yard

– Yeah? – And squished down, made orange juice out of the oranges in our yard – How do I explain this? I took an orange (crew laughs) I squished it down– – Do I need to go through the whole process? – And a liquid came out and lo and behold I had made orange juice – And it tasted just like that– – It tasted like crap – Super tart, like these oranges aren't made for orange juice

– You didn't squish it right – We gave it to everyone who came over though Straight from the orange tree in our yard – How do I say this? I squished the orange – I wanted to figure out how descriptive I needed to be

Okay, I got it – [Stevie] Okay Three, two, one – No These are the best ones

I'm voting for Tropicana to taste good I guess – [Stevie] The Tropicana is in cup number one – Woo! – You're playing the producer game You're like, on, it went to one once – No! Ho ho ho! What, no, it tasted the most like– – The tropics? – Typical orange juice, man

– Tastes like the tropics? – Yeah it tasted like a weird hotel in Vegas – [Stevie] Here's what the other cups contain 365 from Whole Foods, Kirkland Brand, and Kroger brand – Kroger is a loser on the OJ circuit – Kroger's been using that three in my old yard

What they do is they take the oranges and then they squeeze them– – I don't know how to say it exactly, but– – They make– – Squish it – They make orange juice with it – Squish it (rock music) – Round five – Of these four American lagers, we have to pick out the Budweiser

– Budweiser and now, you're playing just to not have zero points at this point – Yeah just for pride of not getting shut out – Well first of all, this one has a noticeable head on it And that one has no head – Nope

And this one is the lightest Again, if I'm gonna drink a Budweiser, you look through the glass or you don't look through the can, you don't really, I don't really pour a Budweiser in a pint glass – Yeah you do that with Miller (laughs) Only Miller – Dink it, let's dink it and sink it once

– Oh all of a sudden This is not a bad beer, it is not Budweiser – That, I would call that a bad beer and I don't know if it's 'cause I just drank a bunch of orange juice You know, I do not recommend drinking orange juice, drinking beer and then brushing your teeth – That's Coors

– This is bitter, this is– – That's not bad I like that That's Coors – I would call that surprisingly hoppy We'll call this urine

– That's Budweiser (Link smacks lips) – I just don't, I don't drink these beers I drink like a craft beer– – I don't either – You know? – Just going off of, all right– – To me this is the worst beer of the four – That reminds me of when, for some reason we decided to get a 24 pack of Coors when we were on the Alka-Seltzer Great American Road Trip (chuckles) and put it in the RV and I had one and I was like why did we make this mistake? That's what it tastes like

– And then I'm like more for me, I'm in the back of an RV – All right I– – Ready? – I feel pretty good about this – Okay – Hold on, hold on Oh God, you feel pretty good about this? – Yeah

– [Stevie] Three, two, one – That one's horrible I actually don't think it's that one – You might be right It's one of those two I think

– [Stevie] The Budweiser is in cup number two – Oh! – Oh it is the worst! – What? That– – I actually feel less American right now – [Stevie] Simpler Times – Simpler Times? – [Stevie] Which is the Trader Joe's brand Hamm's

– Hamm's – Hamm's is number three – What is Hamm's? – [Stevie] And Schlitz – Schlitz? – Schlitz! – I thought Schlitz was a malt liquor – It is

This is Budweiser? – Yeah, I'm not going back for more What is Hamm's? – Just reminding myself why I don't drink it – [Alex] It's like an off-shoot of PBR – It's an offshoot of PBR, Alex says – [Alex] It's the best beer in the world

– Congratulations to me Link, you lost, which means you have to drink Josh's special cola – Oh gosh – It has a picture of him on it From times gone by
