Blind Chicken Nugget Taste Test

Blind Chicken Nugget Taste Test

December 9, 2019 100 By William Morgan


-Can we guess where these nuggets
came from using only our nugget hole? -Let’s talk about that. ♪ (theme music) ♪ -Good mythical morning!
-In the 1950’s, Robert C. Baker, a food science professor at Cornell University
created in his lab a true staple of the American diet: the chicken nugget. Now,
little did Robert know, he hadn’t just come up with a way to fry chicken goo
and sell it, he had created an empire. -And we have tasted the fast food burgers
and the fast food fries but today we are going to find out how well we know
our nuggets. It’s time to play… -As you can see, we can’t.
-We’re gonna be tasting 6 different nuggets. We don’t know what order they’re
gonna come in but they will be: Carl’s Jr/Hardee’s, Chick-fil-A,
McDonald’s, Wendy’s, KFC, and a Tyson frozen nugget and then a bonus round that
is some sort of Frankenugget combination -of multiple nuggets.
-Now, the loser of this game has to drink the dreaded Chug-it Nugget, which is a
mixture of all the nuggets and sauces. Ew! And these will be presented to us using
the patent pended Chicken Stick aka the -Chick aka the Sticken.
-Alright let’s get started with round 1! -Bring it in.
-Bring in the nuggets. -Oh, there it is. -That’s crispy
-Let go of it! -Oh yeah (laughs) I’m
gonna be so good at this -It seems so straightforward at this point
-I’m all over it. -But I’ve thought this before-
-I’m like sauce on a nugget right now. I’m all over it. Well, I’m half on it but then
if I dip it all the way, then I gotta put my fingers down in there and you’re
not gonna wanna share it. I have my guess. -I have my guess.
(Stevie) Okay, 3, 2, 1 (Both) MAC-Donald’s!
-We even said it the same! -Yeah we did, we said MAC-Donald’s.
Hold on but we’re so sure about it. -Yes of course we’re sure about it ’cause
that’s what it is. That one was easy. -Okay, bring in the next nugget.
-I love a nugget. -(Robotic) I feel like I should talk
like a robot. I don’t know why. -This one’s got some sort of-
Oh giving me the whole thing? -Let go of it! -That one’s got some sort of Shake-n-Bake
on it. That’s a Shake-n-Bake nugget! -I’m feeling it with my lips as I eat it.
-You donkey-lipping? -Half of the nugget is still on
the outside of my mouth. -That’s a good idea.
-I’m just feeling it with my lips. You’re not touching with
your hands are you? -(giggles) No.
(crew laughs) -(giggles) I don’t know why
I giggled like a little girl. -You sound like the Pillsbury dough boy.
-(laughs) You don’t touch my tummy. -(giggling) That’s enough. -Wow.
-That’s not a bad nugget but it’s not a great nugget. (laughs) No
nugget is a bad nugget. -I don’t wanna give you any hints at this
point. The first thing I wanted to say was Wendy’s and then the second thing I
wanted to say was, that ain’t Wendy’s. -That ain’t Wendy’s man. That’s probably
what it says on the package: “That Ain’t -Wendy’s”
-Just in case you were wondering. -Alright let’s guess.
-This ain’t Wendy’s. (Stevie) Okay here we go, 3, 2, 1 (Rhett) Tyson frozen.
(Link) Frozen Tyson. -You said frozen Tyson, that’s incorrect.
-Yeah we’re all over this man. -Are you fiving?
-Yeah I’m fiving. -I’m just happy to have nuggets shoved
into my mouth. Like this is like heaven -for me. If I die and this is what I-
-Oh come on, you gotta warn me! -what I open up to then I’mma be- Oh. -I’m gonna donkey-lip this one.
-Are you doing my technique? -Uh huh
-Half the nugget is still on the outside -of my mouth.
-Half the nugget is on the outside of MY mouth. This is how everyone
should eat nuggets in public. It’s shaped like the United
States of America. -How did you get all that? Is there a
special promo going on somewhere? You know what, they should do that. One of these
restaurants should have a nugget for every -state.
-Yeah that has- Shaped like each state. -Hawaii would be like four little nuggets.
-(laughs) And you can put ’em all- -Oh gosh that’s a great idea!
-Put ’em all together. Collect ’em all. -Texas will be a big ol’ nugget
-I love it, then you get up into Rhode Island. I don’t even know what that is. Is
that just crumbs? No offense Rhode Island. -It’s like a popcorn chicken. Oh man! -Like the first one you got is like
going real nasty and gnarly. -State ‘nuckies’
(laughter) -State ‘nuckies’
-They’re gonna call them state nuckies (laughing) Don’t call them state
nuggets, call them state nuckies -I feel like at this point I have to say,
there’s nothing that’s been added to these nuggets. We’re just idiots. Uh, this is a
tough one, it really is. It’s not a bad -nugget.
-I think I know exactly where this comes -from and they have these in Rhode Island!
-Man. (Stevie) Okay you ready? 3, 2, 1 (Rhett) Wendy’s!
(Link) KFC. -Ooh
-Think you’re wrong, my friend. -I didn’t taste 11 herbs and spices but
I don’t think they put those in their -nuggets.
-Well I’ve never had a nugget from KFC so -I wouldn’t know.
-Me neither. -I think somebody just messed up.
Or maybe both of us. Bring it. -I don’t think we could’ve both
been right that’s for sure. -Ew. What is-
-That’s like an animal. -This like a cross-section of nugget? -I know exactly what is happening
in my mouth right now! -It’s like a-
-(Rhett) It’s pretty good too. -That’s like a fryless cutlet.
-Did you guys mishandle that nugget with the chicken stick and you got all the
breading off of it? You can’t handle the -nuggets that hard!
-Don’t scrape the nugget. Never scrape a -nugget.
-You scrape a nugget too hard… -You end up with what they’re
selling at whatever place this is. -I know what it is man.
-It’s marinated too. -You know what, I have had these.
-You’ve had these? -Because I was like, hm that’s
interesting, that seems healthy. -Dang, I am stumped.
-Really? -Big time. I’m stumpalicious man.
-Man I think you’re handing me this game -on a nugget platter man.
-I’m not trying- Oh, is that hint? I know they serve nugget platters
at one of these places. (Rhett laughs)
-Um, dang. Who makes a grilled nugget? -I’m ready to guess.
(Stevie) Okay 3, 2, 1 (Rhett) Chick-fil-A!
(Link) KFC. -I said KFC again, I meant so say CFA.
-(laughs) What? There is no acronym. -There is, CFA.
-You said KFC brother. -I said KFC, I just guessed KFC! I don’t
know why those letters came out again. -Okay, enter the nugget. That
would be a good movie. -Enter the Nugget. Like Enter the Dragon?
-Yeah yeah, we gotta get somebody in the Lee family to- -This is an actual chicken’s head.
-I think I’m eating a starfish. -Crusty starfish. Alright I have my guess.
-Really? That’s from a restaurant? Hm. -It had no form.
-Yeah you’re right. -It was formless.
-It had no form at all. There was no shape -to it.
-No shape at all. -Nope, none at all.
-They didn’t put that in any fun little -state-shape.
-Nope. It did not come in any particular -shape.
-Then next year we could do all the -countries.
-Yeah. -There’s like 260 countries.
-Geogra-nuggets. (laughter) Yeah homeschooled for the win
-Yeah state nuckies is first and then -geogra-nuggets.
-They’re gonna sell ’em in the cafeteria -man. School lunch. Geogra-nuggets.
(Rhett) We gotta tell Michelle Obama. -I’m ready to guess.
(Stevie) Okay, 3, 2, 1 (Rhett) Hardee’s!
(Link) Carl’s Jr! -Oh we guessed different
but it was the same thing. -Yes. I went East Coast on y’all.
-Dude, it was star-shaped. You couldn’t -feel that?
-Yeah, like a starfish. They have the new starfish nuggets at Carl’s Jr. (Rhett) Okay, bring the nuggets in.
(Link) Still hungry for some nuggets. (Link) Never turn down a nugget. I’m trying to talk but
there’s a nugget there. (Lizzie) Open your mouth wider.
(crew laughing) -That nugget’s like piece of coral.
-You gave me a Hawaii nugget. You literally gave me state nuckies. Hawaii.
(Lizzie laughing) -I almost choked. That is an
undulating nugget, man. -It was good though. It was a good nugget.
-But if I had to describe the shape of it, -it would be like a sea creature.
-It was like you threw a rock at a chicken and just (explosion sound). All the pieces
that happened and they just fried ’em. -Is that how they make nuggets these days?
-This place, they do. Bring out the -chicken rock!
-They stone chickens into nuggets? -Yeah they do at this place.
-Dang man. -‘Cause it was a weird nugget. -I think I prefer the molds. -I think what they did was they went to
some restaurant and said, alright give me your reject-weirdest looking-you’re-
never-gonna-sell-this-shaped nugget but it still needs to taste good. And then that’s
what they just shoved into our nugget -holes.
-(laughs) Okay. (Stevie) Okay guys, are you ready? 3, 2, 1 (Rhett) KFC.
(Link) Carl’s Jr. -You think that’s- There’s
no 11 herbs on that. -You don’t know that. You don’t
know how many herbs there are. -I think that was a Carl’s Jr. They’re
always switching up and doing something interesting.
(Stevie) Okay guys, ready for your scores? -Yeah
-Oh yeah, where do we stand? (Stevie) Rhett, you have 6 points.
-I didn’t miss! I’m the nugget king! (Stevie) Link, you have 3 points.
(laughter) -Man, my nugget hole’s
working so well today! -Man you are lucky.
-You can’t win now, man. -You know what, I’m never gonna turn down
an opportunity to taste a Frankenugget so let’s go for it. -Okay moving into the Frankenugget round,
Link, I think it’s only fair, even though -I haven’t missed any (laughs)
-Dang you lucky nugget dog! -to make each one of these nuggets in
the Frankenugget, there’s 2 of them, 1.5 points. So if I miss both and you get both
right, we can tie and I’ll be your Chug-it -buddy.
-Okay, all right. Bring it in. I feel like I’mma have to go wide. (crew laughing) -I’m trying to pull it apart.
-I’m definitely enjoying it. -The overall breading is a contribution
from our crew. I’m trying to get rid of -that.
-The breading was a little overwhelming. But I like the eating with the back of my
hand. I can employ that technique again. -I’m getting a little information from 1/2
-You guys did something tricky on this one You did something tricky, didn’t
ya? You tried to trick us. -I know what one of them is definitely.
-I’ve completely missed the first one. The first one was just completely covered in
batter and just went straight past me. -I got this nailed. Based on your correct
answers from earlier, I am 100% confident in my answers at this point.
I am ready to redeem myself. -Okay.
(Stevie) Okay, 3, 2, 1 (Rhett) Chick-fil-A and Hardee’s.
(Link) KFC- Oh I meant to say Chick- I said KFC again but I mean to say
Chick-fil-A. So Chick-fil-A and Tyson. -It was the Chick-fil-A fried though.
It wasn’t the grilled. -No, it was the grilled.
-But I said Chick-fil-A, that’s my answer. -But you said fried and it’s definitely
grilled so it’s the grilled Chick-fil-A -and it’s the fried Tyson.
-I said Chick-fil-A and what’d I say? -Hardee’s?
(Stevie) You said Chick-fil-A & Carl’s Jr (Stevie) and Rhett, you’re 100% correct -What?!
-Down to it, it was the fried one? (Stevie) It was a Chick-fil-A and a Carl’s
Jr, yeah -But you thought it was fried
(Stevie) I mean it was grilled. -Oh but I got both of ’em right though!
-But you didn’t- -But I still win!
-You still win. Alright, congratulations -I thought y’all did something tricky
and you put the fried in there. -I’ll chug the Chug-it Nugget because you
know what, it’s still a nugget, it’s gonna be great. -Thanks for liking, commenting & watching
me completely kill this competition. (crew laughs)
-You know what time it is. -Hi, I’m Vince.
