– How different does
diet food really taste? – Let’s talk about that. (groovy theme music) Good mythical summer. – There’s a prevailing
presumption that diet foods do not taste as good as
their non-diet counterpart. – True, that is true. – There is also a prevailing presumption that if something is
diet, it’s easy to tell that it’s diet even if
you didn’t read the label that said diet. – I believe that might be true, but that’s what we’re going to test. – Let’s do that today, it’s time for Roxanne, You Don’t Have to
Guess if This Food’s Light!!! Cause We Do. – Alright, this is pretty simple. We’re gonna be presented
with a food, or a drink, a substance that we can ingest. – Who knows? – And it will either be diet or ny-et. Actually ny-et is nyet,
which is no in Russian, and it was the closest we could
get to diet that meant no. It doesn’t make any
sense, but you understand. – Diet or ny-et.
– We’re going to say – I got it.
– Whether it’s diet or ny-et, and the person
who guesses more right becomes Diet Brian. – Because?
– We’ll explain that later. (soft music)
– [Together] Round one. – Here we have Mountain Dew. – Or do we? – Yes we do. – It could be diet Mountain Dew. – Yeah, it could be, it’s canless, because the can says what it is, and it’s our task to drink it and decide. Dink it and sink it. A little flat. You know, growing up I was
more of a Mello Yello man. (light slurping) I don’t know why I’m doing
that, just because he is, it’s not helping me any. – I know. _ Now they say diet Mountain
Dew tastes more like regular Mountain Dew. – No, they say that about Dr. Pepper. – That was their slogan. – No, it was Dr. Pepper’s slogan. – No, it was Mountain Dew’s slogan. – But well Dr. Pepper
– Diet Mountain Dew – stole it from Mountain Dew.
– Tastes more like regular Mountain Dew. Or was it Dr. Pepper? – It was Dr. Pepper, man, it
was definitely Dr. Pepper. But I mean, I think the
point is, they do want it to taste like Mountain Dew. – I’m ready. – [Stevie] Okay, three, two, one. – Diet.
– Diet. – It tasted good, but
it didn’t taste as good. – It had that aftertaste. – [Stevie] You are both correct. It’s diet, which is zero calories, zero carb, and zero sugar. – And zero fun. – No it was actually pretty fun. (soft music)
– [Together] Round Two. – Here we have ridges. – On Ruffles, these are Ruffles man. – We have Ruffles with ridges. But ridges with Ruffles.
– The branding just really, really sticks with you. – Now we’re both off, alright, I messed up on the Mountain Dew. Now here’s my thing, without tasting both, ’cause if we did that, this would be easy, this becomes actually
really difficult because I’m never gonna turn down a chip, and I’m never gonna complain
about a chip, I don’t think. I don’t think I would eat a
diet chip, and not like it. – And diet chips are
not diet in the same way that Mountain Dew’s diet. Like they’re not gonna
replace the sugar in a, well chips don’t have sugar. It’s gonna have less calories,
like less fat or something, like a different oil. And that kind of stuff,
that’s hard to detect. – It smells the same. – This is a close one. I’m gonna feel really inside
of each ridge with my tongue. See if I Can, I’ll ridge it. – I don’t know what you mean. – Move your tongue down a ridge. – Licky daddy. – Got it. – [Stevie] Alright, three, two, one. – Nyet.
– Nyet. – [Stevie] You are both incorrect. – No, really, that’s diet? – [Stevie] They are reduced
fat, and they claim to have 25 percent less fat than regular Ruffles. – Well 25 percent, you
gotta have a good tongue, – 25 percent less, woah. – I didn’t ridge it enough. – [Stevie] It contains the
same three ingredients, potatoes, veggie oil, and salt. – That’s tough. (soft music)
– [Together] Round three. – Dang, what is this, Spam? Man, this is spam. – I’m a processed meat man. Not anymore, but growing up I
had a lot of processed meat. But Spam was the one line I never crossed. – And it was a thick, gelatinous line. – We did vienna sausage,
we did Penrose sausage. – That is that, we called ’em vi-eener. – We did bologna. – It’s like a loaf of meat
but not to be confused with a meatloaf, gosh. So are you telling me,
because I know you’ve eaten it on the show before. – I don’t like the taste of it. – You don’t like it? – I actually don’t like the taste of it. I mean it’s not horrible. – It doesn’t look that greasy. I don’t like looking at it when I eat it. – I smell it real good, though. – It doesn’t taste bad
if you don’t look at it. Or think about it, or
conjecture what it might be. Or all the things it might be, ’cause I think it’s a lot of things. – I’ve never really inspected Spam. But it’s so homogenous,
I mean look at that. – I can’t look at it dude. – It’s the same pinkness
all the way throughout. This could be made of people, and we would have no way of telling. – Pink people. – Think about it, you couldn’t, there’s no way you could
decipher, is that what we’re, is this whether it’s
got people in it or not, is that what the game has become? – No, no, no, we’ll do
that at another date. – ‘Cause I’ll tell you
right now, I have no idea. But whether or not it’s diet or not. – Could be people. – [Stevie] Ready, three, two, one. – Diet.
– Nyet. – It’s diet, cause it’s not piecey enough. – [Stevie] It is diet, it’s light, which has 50 percent less
fat, 25 percent less sodium, and 33 fewer calories. – I knew it.
– It doesn’t have chunks, right, you see the
chunks on the one in the store. – When you said it was all homogenous, – I didn’t even take my own clue. – Yep, yep, and I knew
what was up with that. Get it out of here. (soft music)
– [Together] Round four. – You know what I
actually did on that one, I did the bad taste, the bad test thing. The first two were diet, so I was like, oh, I’m just gonna say this is not diet. – I don’t play that way. – Yeah, I can’t do that, can’t do that. – I remove all things except
what’s going into my mouth. – Now this is a pepperoni
pizza Hot Pocket, but it also might be a
pepperoni pizza Lean Pocket. – Never had either of
these particular type of Hot or Lean Pockets. It’s like a calzone, but it pocketed. Let me squeeze out the good stuff. It’s like it’s sticking
out its tongue, Hot Pocket. – I’ve almost eaten this whole thing. – Woah, where did it go? – In my mouth, in my body,
in the name of science, man. – You put food in front
of Rhett, it’s like an involuntary response for
him to make it disappear. – I might as well eat the whole thing. – As quick as possible. To me, I actually think
the breading is what’s key to know if it’s between lean or not. They’re too smart to skimp on the insides. – Am I supposed to be making
conclusions about this? – There it goes. It’s gone. – Okay.
– It’s very good. – I have an opinion. – [Stevie] Alright, three, two, one. – Diet.
– Diet. – Now I think it’s diet
because even though it tasted really good, I think
it could taste better, and I believe Hot Pockets has done that. – Yeah, I think it could
be greasier and fattier. – [Stevie] Guys, this is a Hot Pocket. (buzzer) – This is nyet.
– Really? – [Stevie] It’s not a Lean
Pocket, it’s a Hot Pocket. – I feel bad about eating
the whole thing now. (soft music)
– Round five. – What we got here is some
Progresso chicken noodle soup. – Now when I look at this,
it just looks like soup. – I thought you were gonna
have some sort of insight. Now when I look at this,
it just looks like soup. – I mean it’s a little, it’s not runny. I think when you get light
soup, it gets kind of thin and this doesn’t seem thin to me. – How would you make – That’s hearty. – Chicken noodle soup less calories? – You thin it out, you add water, man. You progress it. – But is the pasta different? Like what am I supposed to be trying to, what am I trying to find? – The carrot’s not gonna help. – I’m gonna have to eat the
whole thing to find out. – Yeah, you are Rhett,
you’re gonna have to go all the way, gusto. – It tastes good. – I think it’s the stock
that it’s cooked in, so I think the thick or
thinness of the stock, – The thicker thinness? What about the thinner thickness? – The thick or thinness
of the stock is what helps you decide. – Okay, well I’m going, – In the absence of
anything to compare it to, I would chow down on this,
and I would not complain. I think it’s great. – Yep, me too. – [Stevie] Okay, three, two, one. – Nyet.
– Diet. – So therefore it is not
diet, I feel strongly. – [Stevie] You are correct
Link, it is regular. – Dang, you’re a diet genius. – I’m telling you man,
it would’ve been thinned. They would have thinned it out. (soft music)
– [Together] Round six. – Okay, well I can’t even win now Link. Do you want to give me, you
wanna make this last round worth two points just
to make it interesting? – Double or nothing to
make it interesting, if you eat everything on your plate. – If I eat all this bread,
I can be Diet Brian. – Yeah, you can be Diet Brian. – If I eat all the bread and get it right? – Yeah man. – Oh gosh, gotta get started. – You gonna do it? – No, I’m not gonna do it. – You want to win that badly?
– No. – This is half a loaf. I can tell you right
now, this is light bread, just by patting it, I
don’t even have to eat it. – Yeah, and by tasting it, – It’s hard on top.
– It’s confirmed. – What about the bottom, turn it over, change the diet, hard down there. – You’re not even going to taste it? – I’m gonna taste it,
but I’m gonna taste it, – This is fun, stick your nose in it, like a brand-new library book, like opening up a new book,
but it’s a book of bread. – This is like a freaking
relaxation technique. If you have, you know how people have, – Hold on, do this though. Do it like this, and stick
your nose in there like that. – That’s not as good, I’m telling you. You know how people breathe into bags when they’re hyperventilating? – Yeah, but I got the whole thing, look. I’m like Bane, but it’s bread. – You’re loafing it. This is called loafing. – He’s a loafer, I can see it. – I think this is a
legit anxiety relief cord that you can pull at any time. I’m just so relaxed right now. – But it smells so good,
I’m starting to think it might be regular bread. It’s still a little bit light, though. – It’s like, I mean, this
is the new spa thing guys. – But is it diet or not? – Well it’s brown, it’s wheat
bread, all wheat bread’s diet. – You’re the winner regardless. I’m not gonna, don’t let me
make this worth two points, that’s not fair. – [Stevie] Okay, three, two, one. – Nyet. – I’m gonna say that’s light bread. – [Stevie] It’s de-light-ful
bread, which is a diet bread. It has 45 less calories
compared, oh sorry, it has 45 calories compared to the 60. – But it smells just like regular bread. – [Stevie] I like light bread. – How much calories do you
get from just sucking it? – Just a little bit
probably, just a little bit, not a lot, I mean there’s
something going in. – Breathing it, like using
it as some sort of a filter. This is such a good idea. Look, do this today. Take one slice of bread
and breathe through it in a nonaggressive
manner, and you will just put it all in perspective. – I’m gonna wear one on
the next plane I go on. – Thank you for liking,
