Video Low Fat vs. Regular Chips Taste Test


  • - Today we find the least bad low-fat chip.
  • - Let's talk about that.
  • (funky electronic music)
  • (fire crackling)
  • - Good Mythical Morning.
  • - And Mythical reminder, come see us live in concert
  • in London on February 15th or in St. Louis,
  • Columbus, or DC in April.
  • Go to where you'll
  • find all the details.
  • But now, potato chips.
  • Who knew that this lumpy root bulge could evolve
  • into the crunchable modern marvel that it is today?
  • (potato smacks on floor)
  • But they aren't so marvelous for your health
  • which is why healthy chips are so amazing.
  • - You disrespected that potato.
  • - I didn't, I'm-- - So hard.
  • - I just mashed it.
  • - Okay you said amazing but it's actually,
  • they're amazingly disappointing usually.
  • But I'm not gonna give up hope entirely
  • 'cause maybe there's a brand out there that's used
  • their profits and fancy snack scientists
  • to Frankenstein a low-fat chip that's tasty enough
  • to come close enough to its deep fried delicious counterpart
  • to replace it in my snack regimen.
  • We're gonna find out, it's time for Good Enough:
  • Low Fat Chips Edition.
  • - First up we got Ruffles Original versus Ruffles Oven Baked
  • which says 70% less fat and we're gonna taste these,
  • maybe put it into the context of calories and fat
  • and then determine is this good enough
  • or ugh, that is rough.
  • - Okay so just for a visual here, I got the oven baked here
  • and I got the regular here.
  • That's the same amount of fat.
  • So this is a pretty large difference, in fact,
  • 70% less. - I would say so.
  • - And that is important to some people.
  • Now I personally think the whole low-fat thing is a sham
  • and I think that it really comes down to the caloric content
  • 'cause a lot of times you do the low-fat thing
  • but there's all these other empty calories in there
  • so what we're going to do, we're going to say,
  • if you were to eat this entire bag of Ruffles
  • and then you were to eat the same amount of chips--
  • - This is a smaller bag so if it were a bigger bag.
  • - The same number of ounces of the baked,
  • what would you have to do to make up the caloric difference?
  • So in this case if I was to eat this whole bag,
  • I would have to, and then eat those
  • to make up the difference, I'd have to jog for 25 minutes,
  • so as you're evaluating is it worth it,
  • think about a 25 minute jog.
  • - Is it good enough to save 25 minute,
  • and I suggest we start with these
  • because you know those are gonna taste better
  • it's just are these good enough?
  • Very crunchy.
  • - I mean I'm having a good time.
  • I'm not complaining.
  • - I'm having a good crunch time but my taste time
  • is severely compromised.
  • - Well 'cause you know what a real Ruffle tastes like.
  • - I actually don't even taste potato,
  • it's like they took the potato out which I know isn't true.
  • - Well let's taste the real thing.
  • Oh, why's it so good?
  • - It's so much better. - Yet so bad.
  • - It's not just that oh-- - Foldy.
  • - This tastes, those are the best ones,
  • it's not just that it tastes fattier,
  • it tastes saltier, it tastes more flavorful,
  • it tastes everything, every way that I could describe it
  • except for crunch is better.
  • - And maybe this'll help. - But is it good enough?
  • - Typically you don't eat a whole bag.
  • - I missed my mouth. - Yes.
  • - I literally hit the side of my face.
  • - Your body doesn't want this.
  • - This won't even go in my mouth!
  • Ugh!
  • - Just put this into perspective.
  • A serving is 12 chips, nobody eats 12 chips.
  • But if you were to just do 12 chips versus 12 chips,
  • you'd have to jog for four minutes.
  • That's like getting the mail if you have
  • a really long driveway.
  • Really, really long driveway,
  • or you're just jogging real slow.
  • I think these are, 12 of these definitely worth
  • a 12 minute jog, a four minute job.
  • Lots of numbers. - Yes.
  • I mean it's just, these are just crappy tasting.
  • - Okay.
  • - I'll run to get the mail multiple times a day.
  • Of course it won't be delivered multiple times a day.
  • - [Rhett] So we're saying--
  • - [Link] That'll be a disappointment.
  • - [Rhett] Reduced fat Baked Ruffles are--
  • - [Rhett and Link] Ugh, that's rough.
  • - Okay now we've got sour cream and onion Pringles
  • versus reduced fat sour cream and onion Pringles.
  • 25% less fat.
  • - Yes but in terms of calories and in terms of ping pong,
  • which is the calculations we made,
  • if you ate a serving of roughly 15 chips,
  • you would have to play two minutes more of ping pong
  • if you chose the original, or if you decided to
  • eat the whole can like--
  • - I have done that before. - It's very invite,
  • once you pop. - Is that the slogan?
  • - You can't stop. - That is the slogan,
  • isn't it? - Yes, it is.
  • Then you have to play ping pong for 37 more minutes.
  • - Okay let's eat first and then we'll play
  • a little ping pong just to see how that feels.
  • - Pringles are so like processed, I love 'em but,
  • I predict that these aren't gonna be that different,
  • because Pringles kinda feel like their own thing.
  • - It tastes like an old Pringle.
  • - They do not have the crunch.
  • - It tastes like a Pringle that has lost something.
  • - Well let's make sure because this is the original,
  • I'm gonna try that.
  • I think if I just isolate the crunch.
  • - It's not a huge difference.
  • - It's slightly different,
  • but I'm not gonna hold that against it in terms of--
  • - If you threw these bags, if you threw 'em together,
  • mixed 'em up, you might not know.
  • - The amount of sour cream and onion taste.
  • - The more I eat and go back and forth,
  • the more they blend together.
  • - Now-- - Mm-hm.
  • - Let's play two minutes of ping pong now.
  • - Whoa, I got a ball too. - I got a blue ball.
  • - I got a pink ball.
  • - All right go first. - You go first.
  • (objects clatter)
  • Oh, there goes the, all right.
  • - You know what, don't worry about the table, just do this.
  • - We gotta do this for 27 minutes.
  • (objects clattering)
  • Oh gosh, I just lost the...
  • (chuckles) What's happening?
  • - This is a specially intense ping pong.
  • I think you might have to go like a minute 40.
  • - Well I think the, can you help with the can?
  • Where did the can go?
  • I don't think ping pong matters because these basically
  • taste the same. - Oh.
  • - So even though I wanna play 37 more minutes of ping pong--
  • - 'Cause who doesn't? - 'Cause who doesn't?
  • - [Rhett] Reduced Fat Pringles--
  • - [Rhett and Link] Good enough.
  • - Okay now we've got Lays Barbecue chips
  • versus Lays Lightly Salted Barbecue chips.
  • - Mm-hm, 50% less sodium, so again,
  • we're not working with fat now
  • but this is an important aspect of your health
  • is limiting that sodium intake.
  • - Yeah and just to put this in perspective,
  • if you were to eat this entire bag of Lay's chips,
  • you would get 1200 milligrams of sodium,
  • which is half of what you need for the day.
  • So two bags of chips a day is all the sodium you need.
  • - And this is half of that.
  • - That is half of that so 600.
  • And so let's taste first, and then I have an idea
  • for how we could put this into perspective.
  • Would you know you were eating something different
  • if somebody handed you one of those?
  • - No, I would think that's a good--
  • - It's a good chip. - Barbecue chip.
  • Now I'm gonna try this one.
  • Just a little more umph to the barbecue flavor.
  • - But it's not life-changing.
  • That's still good.
  • - Since it's sodium, let's evaluate in terms of hydration.
  • - I know that you like to drink eight glasses
  • of water a day, Link.
  • - Always stay hydrated.
  • That's my Neal family motto.
  • - And even though this isn't scientific at all,
  • my thought is that if you drink 16 glasses,
  • then you can make up the sodium difference
  • 'cause you're diluting the salt.
  • It's called the dilution of salt--
  • - Theory. - It's a scientific theory.
  • - Okay. - So the only way to
  • really do a side by side test is to have you drink
  • 16 glasses of water right now and then taste the chips.
  • - All right.
  • - I'll continue to eat the salty ones while you do that.
  • - With pleasure.
  • - It's almost too salty.
  • - Ah.
  • - I think I may actually prefer the lightly salted.
  • - Yeah, me too, this is good enough.
  • Ugh.
  • - You got one and a half down?
  • - It's just, I already know.
  • This is good enough, man.
  • I don't need to drink more water than I already drank.
  • I'm already micturating at just a constant speed.
  • - Okay, I don't even think I need the micturation
  • part of this because I think this is easy.
  • Lightly Salted Barbecue Lays--
  • - [Rhett and Link] Good enough!
  • - All right Cape Cod Kettle Chips versus their
  • 40% reduced fat counterpart.
  • To put this in perspective, there are 10 more calories
  • per serving and I'm gonna fold four more minutes
  • of laundry in order to make up that difference.
  • - Oh okay. - Okay.
  • - That's a lot of folding.
  • - Or if we look at the whole bag, there's 80 more calories
  • per bag here, that's a half hour of laundry.
  • I know how much you hate laundry, Rhett.
  • - The folding part is the worst.
  • - That is a crunchy chip.
  • The kettle process is just amazing.
  • - How'd it get such a crunch in such a low-fat chip?
  • - My criticism of Cape Cod is not the taste
  • of the crunch but the size of the chips
  • are always too small.
  • They don't ever get big.
  • - It's small potatoes. - I don't know why.
  • These are still the same size as each other, so,
  • that doesn't help us out.
  • I like folding laundry, it gives me a sense of control.
  • Oh.
  • I watch those videos on Reddit where people show you
  • how to fold stuff.
  • Of course, I don't usually fold a
  • Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club jacket.
  • - [Rhett] That's what you're doing with all your time.
  • - [Link] I usually hang this up.
  • What is this, a blue--
  • - Don't worry about that.
  • - I hang those up, man.
  • - First of all, the low-fat is clearly not as good.
  • I would definitely know if you substituted one of those in.
  • But it's not bad.
  • - Underwear, I don't fold those either.
  • I just kinda throw 'em in a drawer.
  • - I hate doing laundry.
  • I just throw everything in the drawer
  • and then I spray that wrinkle release on it.
  • Y'all know about that wrinkle release?
  • You seen that stuff?
  • It's like magic.
  • - As much as I love folding laundry--
  • - I constantly smell like it.
  • - These are definitely good enough.
  • Especially to avoid laundry for the average person.
  • - Okay so Cape Cod Reduced Fat Chips--
  • - [Rhett and Link] Good enough!
  • - All right now we got Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos
  • versus the reduced fat version.
  • The reduced fat only comes in the smaller serving
  • so we can only evaluate if you were to do
  • a serving versus a serving.
  • So you would eat a serving equivalent to that amount,
  • you would then have to lift weights for five minutes
  • to make up the difference, okay?
  • - Well, oh.
  • - Well the app did not specify what kind of weights.
  • So if you just do this.
  • - Or if you need to be good at it.
  • - If you just do this for five minutes,
  • you can have a whole bag of regular Doritos.
  • Now let's try 'em, let's taste it.
  • Now that we know what that feels like.
  • - That is a--
  • - It doesn't taste like a Dorito.
  • - Doesn't at all.
  • I mean it's spicy but at the same time bland,
  • it's weird how the chip itself,
  • even though there's a lot of the sweet spicy stuff on it--
  • - It's not a bad chip, it just doesn't taste like a Dorito.
  • I would think I'd gotten a off-brand.
  • - Oh my gosh.
  • Night and day.
  • - That's why they sell those in a little bag
  • because people would change their minds too early
  • into the-- - And throw 'em away.
  • You throw them away.
  • They are horrible.
  • I mean, bring it on, bring on the workout,
  • 'cause they're airy, they've got bubbles.
  • Just the entire consistency of the thing is,
  • the crunch is better,
  • the taste of the corn chip itself is better.
  • - Okay so this one-- - Everything's better.
  • - Very, very simple.
  • Spicy Sweet Chili Reduced Fat Doritos.
  • - [Rhett and Link] Ugh, that's rough.
  • - Okay and out of all the healthier chips that we tried,
  • I think the best tasting one was the
  • Lightly Salted Barbecue Lays.
  • - [Link] Right there.
  • - Those are definitely good enough.
  • Those in my mind may actually be better
  • than the original, so, there you have it.
  • Try those, don't try these.
  • - No, thank you for liking, commenting and subscribing.
  • - You know what time it is.
  • - I'm Chris! - I'm Joy!
  • - I'm Katie! - I'm Tristan!
  • - And I'm Chelsea!
  • - And we're on Potato Chip Rock.
  • - [Together] And it's time to spin the Wheel of Mythicality!
  • (blowing kazoos)
  • - Don't jump up and down!
  • Get off of the freakin' rock!
  • - The kazoo is gonna hit the resonant frequency
  • of Potato Chip Rock and it's going to break.
