Ryan and Shane Eat Everything Boysenberry At Knott’s Berry Farm

October 16, 2019 100 By William Morgan


– Hello there!
Today we’re not hunting
ghosts, we’re hunting berries
at the Boysenberry Festival
at Knotts Berry Farm.
– [Shane] A place you’re obsessed with.
– Little known fact, I’m actually
the world’s biggest theme park fan.
Don’t check me on that, but it’s true.
– Tell us a little bit
about the Boysenberry, Ryan.
– If Disneyland is the
house that the mouse built,
the farm was the place that
was made merry by the berry.
This place started as a
little boysenberry stand
on the side of the road…
(fast forwarded noise)
Rudolph Boysen, who made the boysenberry,
which is a cross between a loganberry,
a raspberry, and a blackberry.
(fast forwarded noise)
– We gotta stop at some point.
I think it’s time for us to
eat some boysenberry treats.
– Okay, well I was just excited.
It’s kind of rude to cut someone off.
– Well, you would have kept going.
I’ve heard this.
I’ve heard a 40 minute version of this.
– Yeah, I was gonna
condense it to about 20.
– It didn’t seem like it.
– What do the berry boys
say to start something?
– I’m berry excited.
– Oh boy.
– No?
– Forget I asked.
– Bad?
– No, that’s bad.
Let’s just do it.
Let’s just, let’s go eat.
– Let’s just do it.
– Yeah, that’s–
– That’s good.
It’s a little bit like
Nike, but not quite.
– I didn’t eat all day yesterday
just so I could gorge myself today.
They’re gonna have to roll
me out of the turnstiles.
– Check this out.
I’m also wearing my
special theme park hat.
I only wear it when I
want to look like a dad
who’s angry at his children.
– Or Sam Neill
from Jurassic Park.
– Yeah, yeah.
– So we got our tasting card here.
Everyone gets one of these
when they enter the park.
– Boysenberry sausage on a bun.
– Yeah, that’s gonna be very good.
I’m berry excited about that.
– Who ever…
I’ve never had a bad sausage in my life.
– That can’t be true.
– Relish, ketchup, and mustard.
– Okay, are they all boysenberry-ish?
– [Staff Member] They’re
all boysenberry, yes.
– [Shane] So that’s boysenberry mustard.
– Boysenberry mustard.
– So we make it in our
commissary kitchen,
and you can also buy it
in our merchandise stores.
– Oh boy!
– So is there boysenberry
actually in the sausage as well?
– Oh!
– So I’m gonna apply the
boysenberry mustard now.
All right, here we go.
– I think we’re about to
experience something wonderful.
– We may not even be the same person.
It’s gonna be us before this
bite, and us after this bite.
Who knows where this is gonna take us.
– [Shane] You know what, pal?
It’s been nice knowing you.
– Yeah.
Oh my god.
– Yeah!
– Yeah.
– It’s a good sausage.
– We’re off to a good start, folks.
The nice thing about these,
it’s got exactly what
every good sausage should have.
A nice snap.
– It does have a nice snap.
– When you bite into it,
it got that nice snap in the skin.
– And then you have the
second punch coming in
with the explosion of the
berry flavor in your mouth.
– It’s a snap…
It’s almost like a Gusher hot dog.
– Not a thing that gets a lot of props
usually, but a good bun.
– It is a good bun.
– It’s a good bun.
– God (bleep) it, that’s
a good (bleep) hot dog.
The boysenberry, and just
the food in general at Knotts
is so good, it actually resulted in
the creation of the theme park.
Little history fun fact right there.
– I love it.
Your knowledge of the boysenberry
is admirable.
– It’s good.
It’s alarming, actually.
– What if we got a berry scale?
Zero meaning, “I don’t know about that,”
ten being, “Berry good.”
I’ll tell you what, I’m giving this a ten.
– Yeah, I’m gonna give that ten berries
out of ten.
– That’s ten berries
out of ten berries.
– That’s ten bargara berries
for that bad boy right there.
– Oh ho, berrygara!
– And guess what, berrygara
has his dancing shoes on today.
– Oh boy!
– ‘Cause I’m gonna be
dancing across this park.
– And I’m gonna be moving
my hat around like this.
(laughs)
Oh boy.
– [Ryan] Boysenberry boba?
– Boysenberry boba.
– I think it’s boysenberry
milk tea with boysenberry filled boba.
The napkin escaped me.
– That’s fine, that’s fine.
Well, let’s first just appreciate
the gradient.
– I want to taste it!
– No, Ryan, let’s appreciate the gradient.
You’ll get to it.
Let’s appreciate the aesthetic value.
– That is a good gradient.
– They put a lot of work into this.
– That’s true.
– All right, here we go.
I got a ball right off the bat.
You all right?
– This is the greatest day of my life.
– It’s too good.
We ghost hunt to supplement
our crippling addiction to boysenberries.
– Everything I’ve done in my life,
it’s all built up for me to
get here, to have this drink.
– Ten being berry good, zero
being, “Get it out of here.”
I’m gonna give it an 11.
– I want to give it an
11 too, how about that?
(bleep) the scale, I guess, right?
I’m gonna devote my life to the berry.
We’re gonna be the berry boys.
– I’m happy to be the
berry boys.
– Everywhere we go,
they’re gonna be like,
“There go the berry boys.”
– They’re gonna be like,
“Ghost hunting, what?
“Those are the berry boys.”
(ride announcer audio)
– Berry boys, berry boys,
berry boys, berry boys!
– This is the boysenberry fun bun,
and fun it does look indeed.
We got, like, a crunchy exterior, here.
We got this flowing lava
of boysenberry topping.
Also it’s a cinnamon roll inside.
– What?
Look at how crunchy this looks.
– Eureka!
We’ve done it!
– Let me tell you what’s going on.
– Tell us what’s going on
inside the Madej mouth.
– In this thing.
You do have that classic cinnabun taste,
but the whole thing, I
believe, is deep fried.
Sometimes you have a cinnamon
bun, you get the soft part.
Who wants it?
It stinks, get it out of there.
– There’s crunch around the exterior,
and in the inside, it looks like
there’s layered boysenberry, as well.
12 out of ten berries from a berrygara.
– I’m gonna give it a 17 out of ten.
– Okay, you went completely
in the opposite direction.
– 17!
– What’s your boysenberry name?
– Mr. Berry Boy.
(laughs)
Breaking news.
– We have a cameo, a guest
appearance, from an old friend.
The hot dog that we had
back in taste test one.
– [Shane] He’s all grown up.
– [Ryan] And he has a
boysenberry bun this time.
– It’s a two footer.
We’ll meet in the middle, right?
We’ll each eat a foot–
– I’m not gonna meet you in–
– We gotta support it though.
– Okay, you get the, hold on.
– Wow.
– That’s worthy of an Owen Wilson wow.
– You know, we’ve done a lot together.
This may be the defining moment
of our friendship, though.
– It’s certainly the weirdest
moment of our friendship.
Seeing you down the barrel
of a two foot hot dog is a weird sight.
– Can we get a shot of hot dog cam?
Oh, you’re just going for it.
Okay, great.
That was more of a classic
hot dog flavor, I think.
– I’m trying to recover from
what my eyes are seeing.
I gotta say, that’s probably
one of the weirdest experiences
I’ve ever had, and I’m glad it happened.
– Berry scale, 20.
(laughs)
20 out of 10.
It was two feet, so 24.
One for every inch.
– You can’t keep going up
on the scale, you’re gonna–
– One berry point
for every inch.
– I liked the original sausage better
’cause it had the berry inside.
– Oh, so you’re going
back down to a twelve.
– I think I might go back to a ten.
– This is a boysenberry pie milkshake.
Before they put the whipped cream on,
I could see little bits
of pie crust in it.
– What have we done to
deserve such a thing?
I’ll tell you what I’m gonna do.
I’m gonna take my jacket
off because I need to.
I really enjoy the chunks
of crust that come through.
– That’s what it’s all about.
– This is where the boysenberry
flavor rings the most true.
– It sings.
– You know what I love
about the boysenberry too?
It has the perfect amount of sweetness.
– It gives you the
sweetness that you want,
and then it heads off on its berry way.
– Oh boy.
I’m gonna go give this…
I’m gonna give this a 14.
– All right.
– Because it is my favorite
item we’ve had so far.
– Well, agree to disagree.
I’m going with 160.
What a day.
– I don’t know where we are.
– I’m mostly berry now.
I’ve really, I’ve become Mr. Berry Boy.
I’m gonna change my name on my license.
– The hits kept on coming.
It was a greatest hits tour,
and I was snapping along
all the way.
– Oh yeah.
You were tapping your feet.
– And now,
the snapping’s a little
slower, now I’m starting to…
I might knock out soon.
So now that we’ve stuffed
our bellies full of berries,
how about some roller coasters?
– That sounds like a
bad idea, and I love it.
– Let’s (bleep) do it.
Yeah!
All right, I’m taking my milkshake to go.
– That’s far up.
Welcome the berry boys,
on top of the world!
– Oh boy.
It’s a big drop.
It’s a pretty big drop.
It’s gonna be really great with
all that food inside of us.
(screams)
