Discontinued Cereal Taste Test

(spitting) – It's (spitting) As you may know my love for cereal knows no bounds

I will go to great lengths for it I will even travel back in time for it, and in a sense, that's what we've done today – Yes, thanks to Ebay we have acquired some discontinued cereals and we're about to determine if they should be recontinued It's time to play To Be Discontinued, Cereal Edition – That's right, we have acquired discontinued cereals

We're going to be tasting them and then rendering the verdict Scoop it, it should be recontinued, or poop it, just let it die – And these have been, some of these have been off the shelves for a long time Years And we might eat all of them so don't try this at home, just let us do it, okay? – Let us do it

All right, first up it's a limited edition cereal dedicated to retired basketball player Tim Duncan who is regarded as one of the greatest power forwards in NBA history It is the Slam Duncan O's – Now I'm not gonna open all these boxes like my children open boxes because it's kind of like collectors' items, I'm gonna try to be, even though I already ripped that one a little bit – Be a little meticulous, you can pour it in your bowl We paid $27 once you include shipping for this, so I hope it's worth it

It was released in January of last year through a grocery store chain that's in the Texas area, which makes sense – Now first of all just the appearance of the cereal, it looks like Cheerios and Cocoa Puffs just mixed together which, if you guys did that, shame on you Tim Duncan – Or maybe it's a genius move – Well there's more evidence that supports this because look, this has absolutely nothing about the cereal, it's just all about Tim Duncan It's just Tim Duncan facts, and mysteriously, Tim Duncan's face is nowhere to be found on this

He's like, just use my back – That's true – Isn't that weird? It's the only cereal endorsed by someone that only includes their back – Now he had a cereal in 2000 I bet that one was all about his face

– This shouldn't be too bad because I mean they've been– – It's not that old We're gonna dink it, and we're gonna sink it It's stale – It's definitely not fresh – I also taste a little Tim Duncan

And I like it – It's not bad, I mean, but you can't just buy two boxes of cereal and mix them together Sorry, Tim – So you're saying poop it just because you can mix two existing cereals? – It's just too simple He was afraid to show his face

It's not as good as the Glen Rice Krispies I had – I like it so I think we're divided on this first one, guys, I'm saying scoop it – I'm saying poop it If you're butt is pootin' because of gluten then you'd love these gluten free brown Rice Krispies They're like regular Rice Krispies but made without barley malt

– And this is from when? – This was discontinued just a couple years ago, 2015 We got it for 15 bucks – What a steal for some crisp rice And the interesting thing is it's English and then bam, it's French on the back, so Snap, Crackle, Pop becomes Crick, Crack, Crock en francais – Of course, because those sounds are different on the other side of the ocean

Actually Crick, Crack, and Crock sounds more, because I've never something make a crackle I hear crick, crack and crock a lot more than snap, crackle, pop The French are right again It's interesting there's like ridges on some of the pieces, so you see it? – Brown barley stuffs? – It's not that different than what I remember regular Rice Krispies taste like – Tastes exactly the same to me

Rice Krispies is more about a texture than it is about a taste, that's why you've got to dump a lot of sugar in there, honey, something else They even put raspberries on the box itself, you know, you gotta have something added to this because it's lacking But for people who are deprived of it because of gluten, they need this – So what happened, why did it get discontinued? Did Snap, Crackle and Pop got over Celiacs, is that what happened? – That must be it – I don't think you can do that

I think it's permanent – So you think that, I mean I think this is an economic decision I'm gonna leave it to them Based on taste I'm not bringing it back So if demand doesn't dictate it, I'm saying– – [Both] Poop it

Back in the year 2000 Kellogg's released the limited edition Power Puff Girls cereal Now this box is 17 years old, y'all – I wonder if still fizzes in your mouth? – We gotta proceed with caution We paid $12 to ship this but we only paid $7 to acquire it So this is not highly sought after

– It's got like a foil – It's got games on the back – I gotta be real careful with this

– What's in there, Rhett? – It looks like it's one big mass – Pour me Oh it's one big mass? – It actually smells like regular cereal It's coming, there you go – [Link] That's good that's good

Whoa – It's actually very Rice Krispies-ee – Yep I'm gonna pour my milk in here See what this does Yeah, it has a Rice Krispie kind of a nature to it

– 17, does cereal get better with age? – Sure, it's like wine – It smells totally normal I mean it doesn't really smell, I don't think you can, I think this stuff would be good to the year 3000 – Just kidding Is it fizzing? – Okay now it's really starting to taste bad

– It's does – Oh you're spitting it out? – I wouldn't swallow it – It tastes like bugs – No, it's something– – No, it does taste like bugs The bugs that we've eaten on the show, where they're like dry and nasty

– We should get it out, man First of all, they missed out on a great opportunity to make Power Puff wheat cereal That was the main thing that I think is missing in this whole thing is that they didn't go with puffed wheat That was really just staring them right in the face – It smells great but it tastes like insects

– But I feel like I could taste what it would have tasted like if it were the year 2000 You know what I'm saying? – You're trying to scoop it based on– – No, no, no, you should not scoop this, you should definitely poop this Next up we've got Bill and Ted's Excellent Cereal based on the 1989 film Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure It doesn't really hold up – The movie? – The movie doesn't really hold up

Let's see if the cereal does – Look at this packaging, though On the front it's got a free cassette tape case – If you didn't, if you haven't seen the movie, in the movie they have a phone booth that they get in to travel through time That's what this is

And Keanu Reeves is in it – You know, the guy from The Matrix Check that out, Rhett – I will – We get yourself a cassette holder

I feel kind of bad opening this up but we only paid what, $755 plus $9 shipping for this thing? – I worked so hard to open this – It doesn't come with cassettes, it just holds cassettes, which you provide This is cinnamon oat O's with marshmallows, which sounds like an interesting combination, much like Bill and Ted themselves – What's the other guy up to? Always thought the other guy was Sean Penn

Like, when I was a kid I thought the other guy was Sean Penn I don't know what, and I thought that, and I wasn't even getting them confused, I just thought that that was what Sean Penn looked like – Oh my goodness Smell of that – Smells like – Cardboard

– Long day with Keanu Reeves Golly – The marshmallows have desiccated – This, whoa, I don't even know if this is safe at this point, Link But, you know

– How old is this? 1991? – They keep letting Keanu make movies so let's – We're talking, this is 28 years old? – Golly – Did I do that math right? – I have every reason to believe that that was not, that little piece was not puke green in 1989

– Maybe don't swallow it but definitely taste it – Hold on, you can smell the cinnamon and the oats Maybe the cinnamon and the oats will bring it home Maybe it'll make it hold up after all these years – Let me point out

This is made by Purina (laughing) Like literally, it's made by Purina That is their logo, it says it right there The dog food company – But is this dog food? – No

We're nervous – Oh gosh – This is great It's like eating the thrift store (spitting) – Oh gosh, oh man it's really starting to come now

– Oh man, you know that smell at a thrift store Imagine– – It's like going to the back– – Digesting it – It's biting into the rack of clothes – Oh my gosh Most heinous – That is absolutely horrible

I have a feeling that this would be a lot like what it would be like to watch the movie right now If we were to eat this and watch the movie together we would probably just vomit all over the television Poop it – Okay, wrestling fans Bret the Hitman Hart cereal was created by the WCW in the year 2000 so these 18 year old oven baked corn flakes, lightly coated with honey and almond bits, cost us 36 bucks – Okay I'm gonna be real careful with this

– Plus $11 to ship it, so we really invested in this one Now we're ripping it open Look at those pecs on the front Makes me hungry – Oh gosh, I didn't do that

Oh man, the smell that just came out of those corn flakes – Pour me – Oh wow Smell that first That's what I imagine the floor of a wrestling ring smelling like – Like the under side of it

– Like if you pulled up the court and you stuck your face in there? – It's like if you smeared saw dust into Bret The Hitman Hart's armpit And then licked it it looks great though – I think there was a toy in this I think it's a needle with steroids in it

– Now we're just talking – Nope – We're just, this just basically looks like Frosted Flakes to me

– These cereals that were named after celebrities It wasn't about the cereal In the 80s and 90s kids just ate anything you put in a bowl There was absolutely no discretion Their parents just gave them anything

– It seems like the year 2000 was the sweet spot for this type of stuff, too, like on the back end of that era Bret's signature move was a sharpshooter I think these are gonna be the shart shooter If you decide to swallow Oh

– If you swallow this it's gonna cause a royal rumble in your stomach – Oh, oh – It's kind of just like eating paper (spitting) – It's so not crispy, crunchy, or anything positive that you would associate with the mouth feel of a cereal It's like, it's bendy

And papery – You think we could send this into Smyrna, Georgia and still get this hat and tee shirt? Look at that, we could get both of them for $2495 It's funny how that's not even a great deal now (laughing) You know what I'm saying? – They made all their money off merch on the back

– Bret Hart was over charging for his merch, man Dang – Let's try it though I'm starting to feel a little sick, honestly And none of it even went down the pike

– I think it's because you made eye contact with Bret – True – That's all it was So what's the verdict? – [Both] Poop it – All right hopefully we won't be pooping later on
