Will It Churro? Taste Test

Will It Churro? Taste Test


Today we ask
the age-old question: – Will it churro?
– Let’s talk about that. ( music playing ) Good Mythical morning! Today is the season finale of “Good Mythical Morning.” Spoiler alert:
nobody dies. Like most season finales,
though, this episode is packed
with some of your favorite
characters, your favorite segments, and a few surprises.
But don’t freak out when you don’t see
a new episode next week
’cause we’re gonna be back with “Good Mythical Summer,”
starting Monday, May 28th. But if you want our daily dose
of GMM during our three-week
break, then, hey, follow us
on Facebook and Twitter because each weekday
we’re going to be posting links to classic episodes for you to watch
and comment on along with other
Mythical Beasts, so it’s a communal experience
of watching. If you wanna keep
your daily routine going, just make sure
you follow us for that. And now, let’s end this season
and swing into Cinco de Mayo on a long, sweet,
and crispy note. It’s time for… The typical churro is made
is made by extruding dough – through a churrería tool…
– Oh, yes. …to create that signature
star-shaped cross section. Then it’s fried
until it becomes crunchy, and sprinkled with
magic cinnamon sugar dust. Today we’re gonna be pushing
the limits of the churro by pushing unexpected stuff through our churrería tool. All right, first up we
wanted to start with cereal, and we wanted to go
with a cl– colorful option, – or a “clolorful” option.
– I know what you mean. So it is our pleasure
to present to you the Froot Loops churro. And we’ve got some milk here
for dipping ’cause you always want
a dipping option to go along
with your churro. Okay, so there’s
Froot Loops mixed into this
and then– Yeah, like, diced up. It’s made part of the dusting
on the outside as well. So it’s Froot Loops
in the dough and then
Froot Loops “sprinklies”… – Oh, yeah.
– …on the outside. Are you dipping, definitely? Definitely. – Dennis?
– Call me Dennis. Dennis,
are you definitely dipping? I’m definitely dipping, Don. Dude. Can I call you Don? It’s delightful. Dink it. Sink it. It’s dense. I mean… you can imagine
what this tastes like. The fruitiness comes through
after you start chewing. That’s like
a horrible food show host. “You can imagine
what this tastes like.” And then they
just keep eating it. Guy Fieri wouldn’t have made it
if he talked like that. – Neither will you
if you keep it up.
– Right. – Uh, I don’t–
– You’ve double dipped, – which is a vote of confidence.
– The first person
to double dip is the winner. It’s really good.
I’m trying– This is breakfast waiting
to be revolutionized, people. I’m pretty dang excited. There’s no doubt
that it works. I’m trying to think, is a churro by itself
better than this and Froot Loops
by itself better than this? That’s not really the question
that we’re answering. It is not. Will it churro? ( together )
Yes. Okay, we’ve already
established on this show that the corn dog is one
of nature’s perfect foods. Let’s see if it can mate
with a churro. We call this one
the churro dog. Is that how we made this,
through a mating process? Yeah. We just left a corn dog
and a churro in a room And said,
“We’ll give you some privacy.” Dimmed the lights
and played some Barry White, and next thing you know
we have this. Actually what we did is blended corn dogs
into the batter a 3-to-1
dog-to-corn-dog-skin
ratio, and then the dusting actually
has some mustard and ketchup
powdered sugar, which is just powdered, uh,
what do you call that stuff? Tomato powder,
vinegar powder, dry mustard and sugar
on the outside, and we’re gonna dip it
in mustard. I’ve got the mustard here. Hm, churro dog.
I call it the “chog.” Ooh, the chog is moist inside. Yeah, I think I wanna go–
I think I wanna start on the– And that is not… Appetizing to you? …terribly appetizing. Well, it’s got
a wiener quality to it. – You know, if–
– It smells good. If you were to pop open
a hot dog, this is the kind of thing
you’d see on the inside. So just going to get
a little bit of some mustard,
not too much. You don’t want
too much mustard. Don’t wanna overpower it. – And dink it.
– Give me a little bit
of your mustard. – Oh, wow.
– It’s like a corn dog without the consistency
of a corn dog. It’s like a soft corn dog. – How in the world?
– It’s got all of the taste. – Can I doub– can I? Yep.
– Yeah, sure. Thank you, Dennis. Go for it, Don. – Um…
– Oh, man. And the mustard’s
the perfect complement to it. With the ketchup powder on it, it’s very magical. And it’s good for old people
who don’t wanna chew. Old people who don’t chew. Like, set your dentures aside and just go off on a chog. It’s really, really,
really good because sometimes you don’t
want the self-conscious feeling that comes
with eating a corn dog,
you know what I’m saying? – Lots of memes can be
created while you’re–
– Oh, okay. Lots of things can go wrong. But if you want the sensation
of eating a corn dog, and no one knows you’re
eating a corn dog, well, the chog is for you. If you can’t tell we’re fans, for different reasons– Corn dog, will it churro? – Yes.
– Yes! If you look at the price
of college these days,
your head will explode, and while
your head’s exploding,
you will begin to realize why students live exclusively
on ramen noodles. But all students need
a little churro in their lives, so I am hoping this works. The ramen noodle soup churro, or the “chur-ramen,”
as we are calling it. – Here it is.
– Ooh, it’s complex. Yeah, we have fried
some finely chopped ramen, and then hollowed
out the center with a boba straw and injected it
with gelatinized pork broth. ( chuckles )
Yeah, we have. Then we fried
a seal on the ends to keep the pork broth in there, and then we dusted it with some more ramen
seasoning packets? Your churro’s leaking
a little bit. And some MSG. Don’t look
at my leaking churro, Don. Okay. Never look directly
at a leaking churro. – Okay.
– Always make eye contact. It’s warm.
It’s radiating… – Pork?
– Pork goodness. Wow, it’s very salty with all of that seasoning
on the inside. – Yeah, but… so is ramen.
– Mm-hmm. Ramen kind of makes you
wanna go… I need some water. I have a little water here. You definitely need that. Yeah. Yeah. College kids, stay hydrated. Um, so yeah, once– Ooh, it packs quite
a salty punch. Like, my eyes won’t even open. My eyes are trying
to keep the moisture
that’s in them in it. Something about– whoa! You’re doing it, too.
Your eyes can’t open. Something about the way
that it all concentrated down… got a little too salty. Yeah. I don’t know if we’re gonna
make it past this. We’re gonna shrivel up. We’re just gonna prunize
right now. But at the same time… There’s a lot to love? It tastes exactly like a bowl
of ramen noodles, man. I’m back in the dorm room. Yeah, but I think the thing
that ramen needs, it needs to be
in the presence of soup. – Yeah.
– It needs to be in liquid so that you don’t realize
the damage that you’re doing
to your kidneys. If you floated this log
in broth, well, that would be odd. And I think that’s how–
that’s the only way to rescue this churramen. So ramen noodles,
will it churro? ( together )
No. Now, one time
I looked under an elk and thought I saw a churro, Turns out it was just
the elk’s penis, but it did raise
a very valid question, a question
that can only be answered by eating a churro made
from an elk’s penis. – And here it is.
– Okay. Here it is.
Look at that. Now, it’s not just
fried elk penis. I mean, we churro-ized
it, right? Yeah, we boiled the penis
for safety, finely chopped it into
a flour and egg batter, mixed it with
some rustic penis chunks… We just lost a whole elk demo of our viewing population. Yeah, all the elks are like,
“Come on, man!” I’m sorry, elks. We had to do it. It’s instinct. Ooh, it’s very taut. Sometimes an elk penis churro
bends up. Sometimes it bends down.
Sometimes it bends sideways. Sometimes it’s straight. – Points straight.
– Yeah. – ( laughter )
– Okay. I see the chunks
on the outside. – Um…
– Is there a dipping sauce
for it? Ranch dressing with sprinkles
of hay, I believe. Yeah, thank you for that. There it is. We’re gonna need
all the hay we can get. Okay? – Hm, it’s very dark.
– I’m gonna get… – more ranch and less hay.
– Dark chunks. I’m gonna get some hay.
I want a little bit of hay. I don’t think penis
is quite enough for me. I wanna be able to actually
get some of it down. I like hay. Oh, I got a rustic
penis chunk. Oh, my gosh, the chunks
are tooth impenetrable. Well, elk’s really… ( gags ) It’s nasty tasting. Elks are very stout. It tastes gross. The chunks are like marbles. It’s literally
like a petrified– – Yeah.
– Well, it’s like a stump. Yeah. They should make some sort
of fabric out of elk penis and give it to the military. You know?
“The new Gore-Tex. Elk-Tex.” Well, “Elk Penis-Tex.” Oh, gosh, I keep finding
new rustic chunks. I know. You will break
your teeth off trying
to get through this penis. ( laughter ) I mean, it’s dangerous. Um, there’s no way
I can get it down. You sure it’s not the hay? No, look at that. It’s a– it’s a little– it’s a little chunk,
and it tastes nasty. Now that I’ve gotten down
just to the penis part… It’s penis pellets, really. It’s not good, man. Yeah, I don’t think we’re
rocking anybody’s boat. Even the elks are
on board at this point. They’re like,
( deep voice )
“Yeah, coulda told you. You should’ve asked.” I don’t know why elks
talk like this. Elk penis. Will it churro? – Rhett: No!
– No. Normally we would end things
on a penis. – Yeah.
– But today there’s something
worse, apparently. Yeah, remember
when you were a kid, and if you said a bad word, your mom would wash
your mouth out with churros? Well, that was a weirdly
specific thing just to your mom – ’cause they usually say
“soap.”
– Right. So today we’re using
actual soap for the creation
of the Irish Spring churro. That’s right. We have taken
Irish Spring soap. We’ve blended it up
with milk and eggs and then churro-fied it. And then sprinkled
some more Irish Spring on top. And, interesting note for those of you with culinary interests… Soap is a leavening agent,
I hear. Josh just told us that soap
is a leavening agent. This is fluffy because it rose a little bit
when they put the soap – in there
with the milk and eggs.
– And smell it. Smell that.
It smells so fresh. It kind of smells
like you taking a shower after you’ve been at the fair. – Yeah.
– You know what I’m saying? You can still smell
the fried stuff that wafted onto you
for the day, but then you’re– It takes, like, three showers
to really get it off. This is like one shower,
one post-share– fair shower. It also smells like if you
tried to give a churro a bath. Right, which I have. I wanna see a cross section
of this thing. Oh, my gosh, it’s gooey and bluey. Look at that.
Look down the double barrel
of a soap churro. Let’s get a good healthy bite. The Irish Spurro
or the Churrosh Spring. You got any more? N-No. – Oh, my…
– Wow. If you–
I just started chewing, and then I breathed in, and I feel like
I’m gonna die. Like it’s hard to– – How does it get–
– …it’s hard to breathe. How does the Irish Spring
penetrate– probably not the best word– How does it fill the enti– it just tastes like
I’ve got soap in my mouth. – I can’t taste anything else.
– Everywhere. I know. And don’t drink water.
It’s gonna suds it up. You know what?
Scratch that. Why don’t you drink
some water? No. I think, if you drink water
and swish it around, it’ll make suds. Well, let’s find out. Mm-mm. I can’t even hit my mug. It just made cloudy water. Ugh… Ugh, why’d I spit
in my own mug? And why did I do it
after I saw you do it? This is horrible, guys. You know, maybe it’s the
second bite that’ll be good. Is it any better? No. I gotta say, though, if you’re gonna punish
your children in that way… – You might as well have–
– put it in a churro, you know? Let ’em have a little fun with some churros
at the same time? Or, instead of pinning
them down and washing their mouth out
with soap, you could just–
once you hear them curse, then you let it slide, and then you say,
“We got treats.” And then when they got it
in their mouth, you say, “That’s ’cause you cursed.” And then you curse at ’em
because adults are allowed to. Right.
( chuckles ) So Irish Spring soap–
will it churro? ( together )
No! Sadly, no. Okay, if you like
these churros, we’ll be eating one more,
a Pringles churro to get this Irish Spring taste
out of our mouth in “Good Mythical More.” And click on through because we’re gonna see
if we can guess what Mike and Alex
have destroyed this time. Rhett: Can’t wait for GMM
