Munch Madness: Final Four Ft. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar


Today we pick the greatest
snack of all time. Let’s talk about that.( music playing )Good Mythical Morning! Thank you for making us a part
of your daily routine. Today we’re gonna
be guessing what the Mike and Alex
destroyed this time, and we’re gonna be re-tasting
the top four grossest foods we have ever eaten
on the show. But first,
this is it, guys! The final four! We are down
to the last four snacks in our Munch Madness
tournament. One from each category and we’re about to decide
the best snack ever. It’s time for… Whoo-hoo! All right, so we’ve been
through all the sweet snacks, all the salty snacks,
all the meaty, cheesy snacks,
and all the chips. And we have crowned the best
snacks from each category, and now all that’s left
to do is taste and judge these
last matchups. But before we do, let’s take a second
to look back at how our final four
snacks got here. Man:The road to victory.64 snacks entered, only one
can be crowned champion.
Let’s meet our four
final snacks.
First Cheetos.They’ve been staining the
fingers of toddlers since 1948.
Cheetos were a favorite to win
the meaty, cheesy region
but not before fightingthe most emotionally trying
battle of their lives
Much like the Virginia soldiers
of the Civil War,
it was brother against brotheras Cheetos took
on Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
Red dust was shed,
hopes were crunched
and Cheetos prevailed paving
the way to the final four.
Bugles came
from humble beginnings.
Released in 1965 alongside
Daisys, Whistles,
Buttons, and Bows,
the Bugle was the only crunchy
corn creation to survive.
Nobody expected this fourth
seed to make it to the end,
but fate stepped in.It truly is a salty
Cinderella story.
Sour Cream & Onion Lay’s
is a perennial powerhouse
in the Snack It Bracket,
and this year was no different.
The number one seeded chip
that Dick Vitale once called…
faced tough competition
in its region.
Ruffles fell first and then
faced Nacho Cheese Doritos
to finally answer the question,which is worse?Cheese fingies or onion breath?Rhett and Link went
with their gut,
both figuratively and literallyto bring Sour Cream & Onion
Lay’s to the final four.
And finally, Peanut M&M’s.These party essentials
were created in 1954
by Forrest Mars.
A man who ironically was
allergic to peanuts.
They chewed their way
through the sweet bracket
defeating Reese’s Pieces
in a battle that fans
described as nuts.
Ultimately they faced off
with the fan voted
number one seed Oreos.
But without milk by their side
Oreos got creamed,
and Peanut M&M’s proved
that the EpiPen truly is
mightier than the sword.
( whistle blows )I’m actually moved
emotionally. – This has been a big week
for us.
– Yes, it has. We’ve been
on quite a journey. You know it’s not about us,
it’s about the snacks. Snacks and Alex, we’ve been
through a lot together. There’s a lot
of pressure, though. I’m really feeling
the pressure like if we get
this wrong– – I know.
– We may have already
gotten it wrong. And after eating
all that my health I think
is starting to suffer. Yeah, well, there’s only
a little bit more tasting to go. – All right.
– Let’s get to it. All right, our first semifinal
match is the underdog, Cinderella story,
Bugles versus the powerhouse, Lay’s Sour Cream & Onion. Here’s what we know
about Bugles… And here’s what we know
about Lay’s Sour Cream
& Onion… – Pretty good!
– Pretty good.
Again, let’s re-visit– I’d say they’re real good. Get a little witch finger here. You come a long way, Bugles. And I’m reminded once again
how good they are right now! Salty, buttery,
triangular, geometric. – Fun!
– But over here– You’ve got the delectable,
crispy chippiness. Mmm. Yeah, those are real good.
Aren’t they? You know,
as a big of a deal it is, to be in the final four
and you’re both winners. I mean, I think
we know what’s up. Right?
Sour Cream & Onion. I thought you were on the Bugle
train with me. – The Bugle twain?
– The Bugle twain. I love Bugles. It’s been a great run. You think the victory of Bugles is just making it
to the final four? That’s as far
as Cinderella gets? Cinderella’s gotta try
her shoe on and not turn into a pum– I don’t understand, well,
I don’t remember the story. But– yeah.
No. The crunchiness. – The flavor punch.
– There’s a flavor punch
in these. – It’s a low punch.
Like a punch to the groin.
– It does so much. It does so much
with so little, though. This is the gentle lover. Remember when you played
one of these through a Funyun? – It’s a little childish.
– Remember how special that was? It gets you back in touch
with your youth. Listen, man, the more you talk the more I get
into the Bugle camp. I’m getting inside my little
Bugle like a teepee and I’m not getting out. I’m saying Bugles. Are you falling for the
Cinderellaishness of this? A little bit maybe,
but I do feel strongly about it. – It’s a great story.
– It tastes so good. Look at you just sitting there
eating them. I’m trying to get on your twain,
but I can’t do it. Well,
we do have a tiebreaker, who– we could use. I think we need to. All right,
tiebreaker it is. Rhett:
Introducing three-time
NCAA champion, six-time NBA champion, six-time
MVP, 19-time NBA all-star and the first person to be on
this show who’s taller than me, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar! Link: Whoo! Come on over! – Ah, it is an honor
to have you, sir.
– Yes! – Yeah, you got a little
bike seat there.
– Yeah. We got you a Kareem size seat. – Okay, now–
– There you go. Three-time NCAA champion. So, being
at that Final Four, how does it compare
to being at this final four? Well, you know, it’s a different
ambiance here, you know. Yep, you’ve never experienced
this much pressure. Is that what you’re saying? You know, all the little kids
that are watching and their lives will
be affected by this. – That is true.
– You know, we have to do
a good job here. Okay, right.
I’m glad you understand
what’s at stake here. You’re right,
this is very important. Before you we have Bugles and
Lay’s Sour Cream & Onion chips. Feel free to sample them
and then deliberate as you see fit. Okay. Mm-hmm. – Kareem: Okay.
– Okay. – Number two?
– Link: Yeah, go for it. He didn’t seem overwhelmed
by the Bugles, I will say. You know he’s– He’s a cool one
but he’s a champion! He’s thinking, yeah.
He can’t be shaken. – He can’t be shaken!
– So just give us your thoughts on each of them now
that you’ve tasted both. Just general thoughts. Uh, the Bugles are dry
and unattractive. – What?
– I see where this is going. The Lay’s are tasty. I love the taste. So, I’m gonna have
to go with Lay’s. He’s gonna have to go
with the Lay’s! He has spoken! You don’t have to go
with Lay’s! – Hold on. No, we’re impartial.
– I do, yeah. We’re just as impartial
as the man. I gotta say
I’m a little disappointed, but, Kareem, I’d rather
be disappointed by you – than anybody else
on the planet.
– Me, too. – Okay.
– All right, Sour Cream & Onion
Lay’s moves on! – Great job, Alex!
– Thank you. Hi, Kareem. Okay, let’s find out
who else we’re sending
to the championship game. All right,
first up we’ve got Cheetos. They have… And here is how Peanut
M&M’s break down… Wow! You learn
something new every day! I try to limit it to every
other day, but you’re right. Any day I can learn something
new about John Goodman. – Don’t change the subject.
– I’m all about it. We’ve got a job to do. Let’s start
with the Cheeto, friend. – So cheesy, so crunchy.
– I’m reminded why they made it to the finals. Every one has it’s own
personality – that you kill when you eat it.
– Yeah. How do they make ’em?
Does Chester the Cheetah–
Does he– – Does he fart them out?
– Yeah. I think that’s how it works.
Him and John Goodman. John Goodman is sitting
there next to Cheddar– Chester Well, he’s the voice for these,
just to be clear. He poops these out. You know know
what John Goodman is up to? He’s all over the place. I love how you got
the big ones that have a different
cheese to corn ratio. Then the little,
little, little ones. If you wanna get
more cheese crunch you just find a little one. Okay. We know
we like those a lot, but don’t forget
about M&M. First of all,
these are good
back-to-back. – I’d like to create a mix
out of these.
– You wouldn’t think these should ever compete
for anything, ’cause you can– I’ve got enough love
for both of these. – Just like most of my children.
– But you do have a favorite. – Right. I do have a favorite.
– Man, I’ve eaten a lot. I keep going back
through the layers. There’s something
about the complexity. It’s like a fine wine, man.
It’s like I’m on a trip – to Napa with my wife.
She’s like– No.
– Am I there? You’re not even on text.
You’re not texting
with me at all. – That’s fine.
– This is complete separation. That’s fine.
You know what? I’m somewhere–
I’m at the beach. She’s like, “I’m so glad
you made these plans. You’re so thoughtful, you think
about our relationship. – You are such a romantic man.”
– What are you talking about? Are you sucking up
to your wife? “Let’s enjoy
this wine together. With all it’s many
different flavors.” That’s kinda what eating
Peanut M&M’s is like, baby. It’s so hard
to compare these two, guys. – It really is.
They’re both beautiful.
– We can’t have a tie, though. I don’t wanna put Kareem
through this. Let’s just–
Let’s just decide in our own brains
without even talking anymore. And we’ll do a three, two, one
and put our hands over them. And then if we disagree
then we’ll hash it out, but maybe we agree,
just based on instinct. Okay. I’m ready. Three, two, one. – Oh! Cheetos!
– We agreed. And the reason why yes,
is the cheesy– It just come– It’s such a unique snack. – Yeah.
– And it’s so great! Imitated
but never replicated. I don’t know
what the saying is. – All I know is Cheetos is
moving on to the finals!
– Moves on! Link:
And, Alex, you know what? You’ve worked so hard
this week. – Oh, thanks, guys.
– First of all,
I wanna thank you. I just want
to acknowledge the toll that this has taken
on your body. – You’re worn down, man.
– I know. – You need some help.
– Oh, thanks! Is Kareem still here? Great. Thanks, Kareem. – Never forget that moment.
– No. Oh, I’m gonna keep it with me
for a very long time. Now it’s time
for the halftime show. ( music playing ) – Link: Oh, it’s Chase.
– Rhett: Oh. Okay, he is very talented. Look, a unicycle.
What’s he gonna do with that? Nothing. Link:
Cut himself. Rhett:
Oh, he’s got an apple. He can take apart an apple
and make a funny noise. ( laughs ) Rhett:
Thank you, Chase! All right,
now it’s time for the championship. Rhett:
It all comes down to this…
Okay, man! – Look we’ve made it
to the championship.
– Yeah. Of course we knew
we were gonna make it. Yeah, but now we got to make a very important decision. Two number one seeds made it
to the final. I’m tasting this first.
Taste this first. Let’s get a good old-fashioned
dink it and sink it. It just triggers memories
of positive snacking for decades – in my mind.
– But just smell a Cheeto. Just smell a Cheeto. I mean,
it just smells so good. – Give me a Cheetos stache.
– You got to make it. Look at that.
How’s that? How’s that make you feel?
Can you do that with a chip? I don’t know
that’s a good question. – Try it.
– You already have a stache. Ah! You can do it
with that, too! – So they’re still
neck-and-neck.
– Okay, all right. I’m gonna eat this one. I mean, I’m not so much a fan
of cheesiness that that’s– – Really?
– That’s pointing me
that direction. Maybe I’ll eat ’em
back-to-back real fast. I think the delicate nature
of this chip, It’s so thin and so dainty
yet such a– Such a strong flavor. – Oh, man.
– It is a gentle lover. This is more like a–
like a good therapy session. It’s like wow!
I feel like you’re fading
from the Cheetos side. Like your allegiance is going to Sour Cream & Onion
real fast. But you know what?
There’s one thing about the Cheetos
that over the course of this entire tournament
we have not mentioned once. And it’s arguably one
of the most important
factors of Cheetos. – You can put ’em in your nose.
– Nope. Cheeto dust. – Cheeto dust.
– How have we gotten this far without acknowledging Cheeto dust on the fingers? That you then lick off. Right. It’s like
you enjoy it again. It’s the dark
horse factor. Do you think that the Cheeto
dust is a good thing? – I think it’s a great thing.
– Yeah, I like licking
my fingers. Man, this is freakin’ tough,
man. There’s just something
about that tang, though. Mm-hmm. From the Sour Cream & Onion
that I keep coming back to. It’s so surprising. The delicate crunch
versus the bold cheese. Okay, let’s do the three,
two, one thing. Both: Three, two, one. – Oh!
– We agree! That means our champion,
the best snack ever, is Lay’s Sour Cream & Onion
potato chips! Whoo!
Put it on there, Alex! Link:
Yeah! Cheetos,
you made a great stand. You are excellent. Really the real winner here
is Frito-Lay. Whoo! Whoo! – Yeah! Whoo!
– All right! We got chips for days.
There you go! Let us know how much
you disagree with us
in the comments. Whoo! Or if you agree
let us know that, too. And thank you to the legend,
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – for helping us out today.
– Yeah. Maybe we should do this
again next year! – Yeah!
– And even better, with different stuff.
I don’t know – how we’re gonna do it.
– Don’t make promises. Click on through
because Mike and Alex have once again
destroyed something and we’re gonna figure out
what it was.We might not have
a basketball team,
but we do have
a collegiate T-shirt.
