Blind Grocery Store Salsa Taste Test

Blind Grocery Store Salsa Taste Test

– Which salsa should you dip your chip in? – Let’s talk about that. (groovy electronic music) – Good Mythical Morning. – Joining us today is the
Eva in My life As Eva, YouTuber extraordinaire Eva Gutowski. Welcome to the show!
– Hello! You have to clear something
out of your throat? (Rhett grunting)
– He’s like– – Welcome to the show, Eva. – You need to clear your throat too? – No I’m good, I still have my– ♪ Let me clear my throat
ah-na-ah-na-ah-na ugh ♪ – I still have my youth in me. – Oh you think it’s ’cause I’m an old man. – Oh that’s what it is. (laughs) She got you.
– I gotta clear my throat. Okay. – Eva saw me this morning–
– Let’s change the subject from my voice–
– She was like what happened to your hair? – I swear last time I saw you, your hair was not gray at all. – Yeah. – Yeah, well it’s been awhile. – He aged like a president.
– Yeah. (Link grunting forcefully) – YouTube’s really got ya stressed. (Link grunts) – Oh, you wanna get into that? – Okay how do you feel about salsa? – You know, salsa and I have
a love-hate relationship. If it’s spicy, I love it but
if it’s like mole salsa– – Oh.
– Okay. – I can’t do mole, I’m sorry. – Okay well no mole here.
– But I do like salsa. – All right so you’re
opinionated, I think that’s good for what we’re gonna do. Of course Cinco de Mayo’s
comin’ up so that means if you didn’t pay your
rent you’re four days late. – Yeah. – But it also means–
– Uh-oh. – In that love-hate relationship
you gotta skew towards love because lots of salsa
is gonna be consumed. – Yeah, yeah.
– So we are gonna determine the best salsa that you can
get off the shelves right now. It’s time for we’re prepared-ay
to taste this verde. We want to know-ha what’s the best roja? Hey former California Lieutenant
Governor Cruz Bustamante, we’re about to name the best picante. (chuckling) That’s about as political
as we get around here. – Okay here’s what we’re gonna do, we’re gonna be tasting salsas blindly, we’re not gonna know what
they are but the brands we’ll be tasting in no
particular order are: Frontera, Tostito’s, Newman’s Own, La Victoria, Pace, and Whole Foods 365. – You sure that’s not Pachay? – Well you wanna call it Pachay? – No, Passay, Passay? – Pace. – Pace.
– Like paso doble. – I don’t know, I don’t know. We’re gonna rank them each
on a scale of one to 10. That’s the only thing I do know. We’re gonna combine our
scores and then in the end, we will crown the best
salsa and that salsa will win a kiss from each of us. – Oh that’s weird. – I don’t know about his throat clearing. Maybe he goes last. – I’m not sick!
– Kisses last. – I’m just like– – Okay, and for the
purpose of consistency, we’re gonna be using all
chunky mild variations. No mole.
– And no spicy. – That is what is the
best-selling flavor on Amazon. All right let’s salsa. – [Rhett and Link] Round one. – All right we’ve got what
we don’t know brand here and I don’t know what
chips these are either but they will be consistent. And again even though you may like spicy, the mild is the best-selling
and we can focus on the taste and then infer
that spice would only help. – Hmm.
– Hmm. – It’s a pretty thin salsa.
– Yeah, yeah. – I mean, they may say it’s chunky but– – [Link] Sure let’s double dip. – [Rhett] I found a chunk. – This is giving me like
college frat party vibes. – Is that a good thing?
– I mean not frat, like frat barbecue. – Frat barbecue, a little
inebriated perhaps. But not too much.
– No. – It does feel a little cheap, doesn’t it? – Yeah it feels like a college student picked that up to be nice. – Which is I guess why I love it. – And now they can’t
afford their textbooks. – I do, I like it, I like it. – I like it.
– Ain’t nothing wrong with it but–
– It wasn’t bad. – Nothing’s really, it’s
not making a statement. – It’s super simple, it’s
a little thin for me. There’s nothing horrible about it. I’m gonna give it a six
on a scale of one to 10. – I as well, six.
– Oh! – I would give it a four. – Ooh.
– Okay, a little salsa critic. – I’ll give it a five,
I’ll give it a five. – No hey hey–
– No give it a four. Stick with a four.
– Go with your instinct. – I mean it’s not bad, it’s
not learning towards bad, it’s just really not special.
– But you wanted to say four. Don’t let us influence you.
– Four. – There we go.
– All right four. – [Rhett] And that’s a total of 16. – [Rhett and Link] Round two. – Look at this one, it’s
got some chunk to it. – This one’s looking better.
– Yeah, definitely chunkier. – [Rhett] Oh that looks nice and thick. Doesn’t drip back into the– – Oh look at that, it
holds on the chip nice. – Your chip’s not holding
together very well though. – Oh, very salty, oh. – I would say tangier than the previous. – It’s pungent.
– Yeah. – Oh I like that. – So where the other one lacked a punch, this one’s making up the difference. Givin’ you more to experience
which brings my score up. But the taste is kinda the same. It’s like a punchier version
of the previous, I don’t know. – It’s like they just added
tons of salt to the old one. – It’s still salsa. – I don’t know. I have no clue what it is,
it doesn’t taste like Newman. – This is La Victoria.
– What does Newman taste like? – Newman’s tastes like–
– I’ll know it when I taste it. – But Newman’s like, it’s got that this is all
going to charity vibe. – Oh really? – (chuckles) You know what I’m saying? – Newman’s gives me like
white people buying salsa and they are scared that
it’s gonna have a little too much kick to it. – (chuckles) You right. (Link chuckles)
You right. – This one’s La Victoria. – I’m gonna give it a seven ’cause I’m just gonna
inch it up the scale. – A seven? – I didn’t love it that much. – I’m gonna give it a five. – I really like this one.
– Really? – I may have to readjust my scale, but I’m giving this an eight. I reserve the right to go
above 10 in another round. – [Link] Well I think
that brings us to a 20. – [Rhett and Link] Round three. – Uh-oh.
– Look, now this one is just so red.
– It’s ketchup. Which incidentally,
when we went to London, we were given salsa and they gave us ketchup
with onions in it. – Ew.
– Go ahead. – So let’s–
– This looks like it comes in a giant industrial-sized tub. – Yeah, this is one of
the ones that comes in like a Arizona tea jug. – Oh my God, it actually
smells like the ketchup. – Oh wow.
– Yeah. – I really, guys, I have
like a phobia of ketchup. Like I actually do. – Well I don’t like tomatoes
but ketchup’s fine with me. You’re scared of ketchup? – Yeah.
– It’s not that much different than salsa.
– This is brave for me. – No but you’re right.
– All right. – Looks just like ketchup. – [Rhett] This has a very ketchup-y taste. – Oh no no no. – It’s a very, this
tastes like London salsa. – All right. – Is Tostito’s in London?
– Oh my God, it tastes like if you order at
a restaurant kid’s spaghetti and this is what comes on it.
– Yeah. (Link chuckles) I give it a two, it’s horrible. – This is horrible, this is– – I wanna say one but you
never know, it could get worse. – Now you thought the
last one was La Victoria, but I’m pretty sure this is it. – Really?
– Yeah. I’m givin’ it a two as well. – I’m gonna give it a two.
– That’s a bad salsa, y’all. – [Link] And that’s a total of six. – [Rhett and Link] Round four. – Oh look, I can see things in this. – [Eva] This one looks nice. – [Rhett] It’s also darker,
doesn’t look like ketchup. I see actual seeds in there.
– Seeds? – That’s good.
– Like seeds from things. – And look, I see onions.
– Seeds is not good, is it? – I like seeds, you’re not a seed man? – I like seeds. – And it’s chunky. – See this is really confusing
me now ’cause throughout all the brand names, this looks good and I just don’t know which one it is. – It’s darker. Let’s see if the taste is spooky. – Kinda sweet, why is it sweet? – Man, it looks great. It does not taste good. – Why’s it sweet?
– It’s really sweet but– – It’s also spicy.
– It’s spicy. The seeds.
– Yeah, yeah. For this to be a mild
to be this spicy, boy, I’d hate to meet spicy on the street. Hello, my name is Spicy, ooh. – I really–
– That’s how the conversation would go. I would say ooh. (chuckles) – It tastes fakey at the beginning. – Yeah, it gets better as you keep going. – I do appreciate the effort
they put into the spice. It looks good, it ends good,
the middle is real bad. – Three. – It’s like my life. – I’m gonna give this a six. – Oh you like this one kinda? – I mean– – You like spicy.
– Yeah, but the sweet is just no. – I’m going with a three.
– Yeah. – Three.
– That brings us to a total of–
– 12. Round five. – Here it is.
– Wow. This one’s got like little,
like black things in it like it burnt some peppers
in there which that’s good. – [Eva] That looks nice. – It’s also very, very bright. – It’s like a restaurant experience. – This is like a nice one,
like a homemade restaurant one. I’m gonna get a little
black thing in my chip. – It smells like tomato sauce though. – Oh it does.
– Just straight up Boyardee. – It does, it smells like canned soup. – No. There’s a smokiness to it. You know me. I’m a smoky man, I like a smoky plan. – Oh there’s the smokiness
but it’s too sweet. – You (chuckles), I don’t
taste sweetness at all. – Really?
– I only taste the smoky. It’s like someone just–
– Going in again. – It almost tastes water–
– Smoked a cigarette and just infused it. (inhales) – Does it almost taste
watery with a little smoky, like smoky water? – Yeah it’s like a damp cigarette. – Hold on but just give
ti a chance for a second ’cause a lot of people
like, for me being one, like that smokiness of a, I don’t know what it is. It’s almost like a Chipotle. I think there’s a strong
Chipotle flavor in there. – It’s like a tomato mezcal. – Tastes like you made Chef Boyardee, dipped a cigarette in it–
– With some mezcal. – It’s not my favorite,
I gave an eight to my, it’s not as good as the one
that I said was the best. I like the smokiness but other than that– – Are you going big?
– It’s not doing, I’m going with a seven.
– Okay. – So pretty good but not incredible. – I don’t like smoky. Unless it’s with the bandit. (chuckles) so I’m gonna give this, I
gotta give this a two as well. I just don’t like it.
– Oh come on. – I’m giving this a three. – [Rhett] And that brings us to 12. – [Rhett and Link] Round six. – Now this one has little
black little checks in it. I don’t know if that’s pepper or– – [Link] Black checks? – You know, black spots,
and this might mean that– – You said that about all of ’em almost. – No, the last two. – Oh gosh, what’s happened?
– You lost your chip in there. – I’m like, I’m like–
– Oh! – This is so chunky,
look how chunky it is. – This one smells like tomato sauce too. – Man. I would have never thought that salsas could be so different. – This one is very,
almost sour, am I right? – There’s something
strange happening here. – Why are you laughin’? You think I’m just makin’ this up? – I just don’t know what this is. – Oh, this is Newman. Newman in a jar. – And then it almost fizzles
out with no taste whatsoever. – Yeah it really is so mild on the end. – On the end of it it’s like
you just got saucy water. – You’re like was I eating salsa? – This is the last one
and we’ve been really hard on these salsas, like nothing has met our standard of salsas,
like what are we doing? – This is a no. – I could still eat the whole bowl. – I’m actually fine with this one. – And that goes with all of them. – No I can’t. – This reminds me how
much I don’t think about the food that I’m eating
whenever I’m at a party, I’m just like. Somebody’s like, you know,
that was actually dog turds. Oh!
(Link chuckles) It was in a salsa bottle. – No matter what salsa
ultimately shows up at the party, I’m gonna be eating that salsa. – Right, you acclimate to the salsa. – Yeah yeah.
– I give it a six. – I give it a five.
– I like it. – Give it a five.
– I give it a four. There’s no taste in that. – That’s a 15. And Stevie? – [Stevie] Okay so if we come in– – What does that bring us overall? – [Stevie] The weird thing is, if this had been a brand
guessing game, Link, you’re on it for some reason. Like you were gettin’ it. But the salsa–
– Victoria, Newman. – [Stevie] To shun is La Victoria. You guys gave that a six.
– Show that La Victoria, guys, toss it over here. – Yeah that was real bad. – [Stevie] But you’re
gonna be kissin’ up on the Tostito’s brand salsa–
– Really? – [Stevie] ‘Cause you
gave that a score of 20. – Boom, so worst and best. I think you wanted La Victoria to be good, so you can have that.
– Ew! – But see, it is watery. – Was this the one that
was like tomato salsa? – Yep.
– Yeah. – Gross.
– Congratulations Tostito’s. You are the winner, and let’s kiss it. You wanna go first ’cause of, well– – Oh gosh, oh my gosh. – I couldn’t see it from my angle but– – Well she used her tongue. – All right. I guess I’ll use mine too. (Eva squeals)
(Rhett laughs) I used to do that to the
shower wall in middle school. – Uh I’m just gonna find the bottom and give it a little peck. – All right be sure to
check out Eva’s channel My Life As Eva on YouTube. – Thanks for liking,

  1. Thank god she knew to say “you know what time it is” I always get so frustrated when guests clearly haven’t seen the show before lol

  2. I always love GMM and the crew, but this guest, oh my, why is so negative about everything? Looks like all salsa are gross to her. And yet she said if there's salsa on a party, she's eating it. Whut?

  3. I make this request each time, could you put, feat. Or featuring. So i don't accidentally start a video with a random in it

  4. Ava: this salsa is to ketchup-y

    Definition of salsa: Salsa is often tomato-based, and includes ingredients such as herbs

  5. Give me Pace Picante sauce over any of the others… The rest might as well be made in New York City…

  6. I was gonna write something about this lady, but clearly the audience has spoken and I have renewed faith in humanity

  7. Link said “damn”. he’s transitioning. That’s it, From this point on I’m only liking videos where link curses.

  8. What was the reasoning and point behind her appearing on the show on this episode? She so weird and doesn’t know what to say 🤦‍♂️

  9. How idiotic, they keep saying it smells like tomato. Well dummy it should, salsa is made mainly of tomato that's why its red!!!

  10. That chicks a drama queen who makes those nasty ass faces taisting salsa she is trying to act and she fails hard

  11. Salsa from a jar is disgusting!!! To me salsa has to be FReSH- I usually go for "Pico de Gallo" if I buy it from the grocery store

  12. I love this show/channel. I enjoy all the guests y’all have. Always entertaining and funny. Y’all inspire me everyday to be my mythical best. 😊✌️👍 Much love from Texas.

  13. I didnt actually mind her, but Im averse to the idea of guests in general cause I dont know a lot of them so I dont know what to expect

  14. My favorite part of this video is when I stoped watching and decided to read the comments. Very happy I wasn’t the only one to think this person was 0/10
