Discontinued Cereal Taste Test


( gagging ) It’s…( music playing )As you may know, my love
for cereal knows no bounds. I will go to great
lengths for it. I will even travel
back in time for it, and in a sense that’s
what we’ve done today. Yes, thanks to eBay
we have acquired some
discontinued cereals and we’re about to determine
if they should be re-continued. It’s time to play… That’s right, we have acquired
discontinued cereals. We’re gonna be tasting them
and then rendering the verdict. Scoop it, it should
be re-continued, or poop it,
just let it die. And these have been–
some of these have been off the shelves
for a long time, years. And we might eat all of them,
so don’t try this at home. – Just let us do it, okay.
– Yeah, let us do it. All right, first up is
a limited edition cereal dedicated to retired basketball
player Tim Duncan, who is regarded as one
of the greatest power
forwards in NBA history. It is the Slam Duncan O’s! I’m not gonna open
all these boxes like my children open boxes
because it’s kinda like collector’s items.
I’m gonna try to– – even though I already ripped
that one a little bit.
– Be a little meticulous when you pour it
in your bowl. We paid $27 once you include
shipping for this. So I hope it’s–
I hope it’s worth it. It was released in January
of last year through a grocery store chain that’s in the Texas area
which makes sense. Now first of all, just
the appearance of the cereal, it looks like Cheerios and
Cocoa Puffs just mixed together, which if you guys did that–
shame on you, Tim Duncan! Or maybe it’s a genius move. Well, there’s more evidence
that supports this because look. This says absolutely nothing
about the cereal. It’s just all
about Tim Duncan. It’s just Tim Duncan facts
and mysteriously Tim Duncan’s face is nowhere
to be found on this. He’s like,
“Just use my back.” That’s true. Isn’t that weird?
It’s the only cereal endorsed by someone
that only includes their back. Wow.
Now he had a cereal in 2000. I bet that one was all
about his face. – This shouldn’t be too bad
because I mean they’ve been–
– It’s not that old. So we’re gonna dink it
and we’re gonna sink it. Hmm. Well– It’s stale. It’s definitely not fresh. I also taste
a little Tim Duncan. And I like it. It’s not bad.
I mean, but you can
just buy two boxes of cereal and mix ’em together.
Sorry, Tim. So you’re saying poop it
just because you can mix two
existing cereals? It’s just too simple,
he was afraid to show his face. It’s not as good as the Glen
Rice Krispies I had once. I like it.
So I think we’re divided
on this first on, guys. –I’m saying scoop it.
I’m saying poop it.If your butt is pooting
because of gluten then you’d love these
gluten-free Brown Rice Krispies! They’re like regular Rice
Krispies but made
without barley malt. And this from, uh, when? This was discontinued
just a couple of years ago. Uh, 2015. We got it for 15 bucks. What a steal
for some crisp rice. And the interesting thing is it’s English and then, bam,
it’s French on the back. So, Snap, Crackle, Pop
becomes Cric, Crac, Croc – in Francis.
– Of course. Of course, because those sounds are
different on the other
side of the ocean. – Cric, Crac, Croc.
– Actually, cric, crac and croc
sounds more– ’cause I’ve never heard
something make a crackle. I hear cric, crac and croc a lot
more than snap, crackle, pop. The French are right again. Oh, it’s interesting.
There’s like little ridges
on some of the pieces. Do you see that? Brown barley stuffs. It’s not that different
than what I remember regular
Rice Krispies taste like. Tastes exactly the same to me. Rice Krispies is more
about a texture than it is about a taste. That’s why you gotta dump
a lot of sugar in there. Honey, something else. They even put raspberries
on the box itself. You gotta have something added
to this ’cause it’s lacking. For people who are deprived
of it because of gluten,
they need this. Yeah, so what happened?
Why did it get discontinued? Did Snap, Crackle and Pop,
like, got over Celiacs? – Is that what happened?
– That must be it. I don’t think you can do that.
I think it’s permanent. So you think that– I mean, I think this is
an economic decision. I’m gonna leave it to them. Based on taste,
I’m not bringing it back. So if demand
doesn’t dictate it, –I’m saying…
Poop it!Back in the year 2000,
Kellogg’s released the limited edition
Powerpuff Girls cereal. Now this box is
17 years old. Wow! I wonder if it still
fizzes in your mouth. We gotta proceed
with caution. We paid $12 to ship this, but we only paid seven dollars
to acquire it. So, this is not
highly sought after. – It’s got like a–
– It’s got games on the back. Oh, gotta be real careful
with this. What’s in there, Rhett? – It’s one big mass.
– Pour me. Oh, it’s one big mass? Oh, it actually smells
like regular cereal. Oh, it’s coming–
Yeah. That’s good, that’s good,
that’s good. Whoa! – It’s actually very
Rice Krispiesy.
– Yep. I’m gonna pour my milk
in here. See what this does. Yeah, it has a Rice Krispies
kind of a nature to is. – But–
– 17– Does cereal get better with age? Sure! It’s like wine. It smells totally normal. – It does.
– I mean, it doesn’t
really smell. I don’t think you can– I think this stuff would
be good to the year 3000. Just kidding. – Is it fizzing?
– Okay. Now it’s really starting
to taste bad. – It does.
– Oh, gosh. Oh, you’re spitting it out? I wouldn’t swallow it. It tastes like bugs. No, it’s something– No, it does taste
like bugs! The bugs that we’ve eaten
on this show, where they’re like
dried and nasty. We should
get it out, man! Yeah, first of all, they missed out on a great
opportunity to make
Powerpuff wheat cereal. That was the main thing
that I think is missing
in this whole thing is that they didn’t go
with puffed wheat. – Oh.
– That was really just staring
them right in the face. It smells great
but it tastes like insects! But I feel like I could taste
what it would’ve tasted like if it were the year 2000. – You know what I’m saying?
– You’re trying to scoop it – just based on–
– No, no, no. Definitely you should
not scoop this.You should definitely
poop this.
Next up we’ve got Bill & Ted’s
Excellent Cereal. – Look at that.
– Based on the 1989 film, “Bill & Ted’s
Excellent Adventure.” – It doesn’t really hold up.
– The movie? The movie doesn’t
really hold up.
Let’s see if this cereal does. Look at this packaging, though. On the front it’s got a free
cassette tape case. Well, if you haven’t
seen the movie, in the movie
they have a phone booth that they get in
to travel through time. So, that’s what this is. And Keanu Reeves is in it. You know, the guy
from “The Matrix.” – Check that out, Rhett.
– I will. We get yourself
a cassette holder. I feel kinda bad opening this
up, but we only paid, what? Seven dollars and 55 cents
plus nine dollars
shipping for this thing. I worked so hard
to open this. Yeah, it doesn’t come
with cassettes. It just holds cassettes, which you provide. This is cinnamon oat O’s
with marshmallows, which sounds like
an interesting combination. – Much like Bill & Ted
themselves.
– Yeah. What’s the other guy up to? I always thought the other guy
was Sean Penn. Like when I was a kid I thought
the other guy was Sean Penn. I don’t know–
I thought that– I wasn’t even getting
them confused. I just thought that that was
what Sean Penn looked like. Oh, my goodness! Smell that. ( sniffing ) – Ooh, smells like…
– Cardboard. …a long day
with Keanu Reeves. Mmm. Golly! The, um, the marshmallows
have desiccated. Ah! This– Oh! I don’t know if this is even
safe at this point, Link, but– you know? – How old is this? 1991?
– Yeah. They keep letting
Keanu make movies. So, let’s– We’re talking–
This is 28 years old? – Golly!
– Did I do that math right? I have every reason to believe
that that was not puke– that little piece was
not puke green in 1989. Maybe don’t swallow it
but definitely taste it. Hold on. You can smell
the cinnamon and the oats. Maybe the cinnamon and the oats
will bring it home. Maybe it’ll make it hold up
after all these years. Now, let me point out,
this is made by Purina. Like literally. It’s made by Purina,
that is their logo. It says it right there. The dog food company. – But is this dog food?
– No. We’re nervous. Oh, gosh. It’s like eating a thrift store. Oh, gosh! Oh, man, it’s really
starting to come now. ( groans ) Oh man, you know that smell
at a thrift store? – Mmm.
– Imagine… – It’s like going to the back…
– …digesting it. …just biting into a rack. – Of clothes.
– Oh, my gosh! ( mimicking Keanu Reeves )
Most heinous. That is absolutely horrible. I have a feeling
that this would be a lot
like it would be like – to watch the movie right now.
– Yeah. If we were to eat this
and watch the movie together we would probably just vomit
all over the television.Poop it!Okay, wrestling fans. Bret the Hitman Hart
Cereal was created by the WCW
in the year 2000. So, these 18 year old,
oven baked cornflakes lightly coated with honey
and almond bits cost us 36 bucks. Okay, I’m gonna
be real careful with this. Plus $11 to ship it. So, we really invested
in this one. Now we’re ripping it open. Look at those pecs
on the front. Makes me hungry. Oh, gosh! Oh! I didn’t do that. Oh man, the smell that just
came out of those cornflakes. Oh! – Pour me.
– Oh, wow! Smell that first. That’s what I imagine like
the floor of a wrestling ring – smelling like.
– Yeah. Like the underside of it. Like if you pulled up
the curtain and just
stuck your face in there. It’s like if you
smeared sawdust into Bret the Hitman Hart’s
armpit and then licked it. It looks great, though. I think there was a toy
in this. I think it’s a needle
with steroids in it. – Now, we’re just talking–
– Nope. This basically just looks
like Frosted Flakes to me. Yeah, these cereals that were named
after celebrities, it wasn’t about the cereal. – It was about the box.
– In the ’80s and the ’90s, kids just ate anything
you put in a bowl. There was absolutely
no discretion. Their parents just gave them
anything. It seems like
the year 2000 was a sweet spot for this type of stuff, too,
like the backend of that era. Bret’s signature move was
The Sharpshooter. I think these are gonna
be The Shartshooter. If you decide to swallow. Mmm. Oh! If you swallow this
it’s gonna cause a royal – rumble in your stomach.
– Oh! – Oh!
– It’s kinda like
just eating paper. It’s– it’s– it’s so not crispy, crunchy
or anything positive that you would associate
with the mouth feel of a cereal. – Yeah.
– It’s like it’s bendy. And papery. You think we can send this
in to Smyrna, Georgia? And still get this hat
and T-shirt? Look at that.
We get both of them
for $24.95. It’s funny how that’s
not even a great deal now. You know–
you know what I’m saying? They made all their money
off merch in the back. Bret Hart was overcharging
for his merch, man! – Dang!
– Let’s try it, though. Oh, I’m starting to feel
a little sick, honestly. And none of it even went
down the pipe. I think it’s ’cause you made
eye contact with Bret. – Oh, true.
– That’s all it was.So what’s the verdict?Both:Poop it!All right, hopefully
we won’t be pooping later on. Yeah. Thank you for liking,
commenting and subscribing. You know what time it is. – I’m Courtney.
– And I’m Lauren. Both:
We’re from
Colorado Springs, Colorado, and it’s time to spin
the Wheel of Mythicality. They’re eating cereal. – Was that Bret Hart’s cereal?
– Yeah, it was. – You’re gonna feel it later,
lady.
– Spit it out! Spit it out! Click the bottom link to watch
this episode from the beginning. And click the top link to watch
us lick dry cereal blindfolded in order to guess what we’re
licking in good Mythical More! And to find out where the Wheel
of Mythicality is going to land.Tired of feeling a breeze
on your head

  1. The company on the Bill & Ted's was Purina Ralston. Their big cereal was Chex, until they sold it to General Mills.

  2. I think the gluten free rice krispies are still available in Canada, probably why one side is in french

  3. You know if you wouldn't have messed that box up if you would have had it signed by Bret Hitman Hart the value would have been close to $100 maybe more and you would have you know got your return on that $36 you spent

  4. Let’s eat expired cereal with milk from the year the cereal was about to expire.. get a real feel for the year.

  5. For the slam Duncan o's if you read the print on the bottom of the box… It literally says choclate puffs and wheat cereal

  6. I vote bring back the gluten free cereal. I have a hard enough time finding gluten free options of normal food without my options being discontinued because the "trend is over. Idc if gluten free isn't "on point" anymore Tina

  7. The reason it’s English on one side in French on the other is because it’s from Canada and in Canada all food has French and English it’s not from France

  8. Thanks for reminding me of the powerpuff girl cereal… I had repressed the memory of it bc i loved it so much as a kid that i was devastated when they took it away 😢

  9. When I was about 12 or 13 I had a dream where I was in an antique store and ate some crunch berries cereal (when it was all berries) and it tasted just like dust. It was so nasty, I woke up.

  10. Their theme song for this episode should’ve been Kanye West’s Lift Yourself. the lyrics are “poopity scoop.. poopty whoop ” etc

  11. I have to disagree with Rhett, because Bill and Ted are excellent 😂 I have a huge Bill and Ted sticker on the back window of my car. I would hands down buy that cereal 😂 just to keep it and have it in my collection of movie things.

    Be excellent to each other ✌🏻 guitar solo

  12. I just want to know what they expected to happen eating expired foods, honestly they kind of asked for it.

  13. I had that bill and ted case for years…. never knew where it came from until I saw this video…. crazy lol.. used to keep micro machines and gi joes in it

  14. Everything in Canada has French and english, so i think thats where you guys got it from. It was funny to see your reaction to it.

  16. Maybe I'm weird but I personally enjoy rice krispies without anything added, maybe a banana but that's it. Maybe because most cereals when I was a kid were not super sugary.. at least the ones my mother bought were not sweet. Kix, alpha-bits, honey combs etc. None were very sweet.

  17. I need to get Slam Duncan O's he is my favorite player of all time. I love the Spurs as well so I'll get it

  18. I’m guessing you got the gluten free Rice Krispies from French Canadian territory, since it was English on one side and French o the other?

  19. Link: "Its was released in January of last year through a grocery store chain that is in the Texas area."
    Me getting hype: "WOOO H-E-B! Represent!!"
    (I work for H-E-B. Great company!)
