– Okay, that's good.

– Okay.

– That's good.

– Mmm.

We ship it.

– (laughs) We ship the cheese and hot chocolate.

♪ (accordion intro) ♪ – (FBE) This video is sponsored by Brookside.

We're sure you've seen some of the very strange food combinations popularized by like celebrities, unique restaurants and adventurous people everywhere.

And so we've actually asked our chef to recreate some of these odd combinationsand one of a kind delectable gourmet dishes.

– Ooh! I like to be open mindedto like try new foods.

– (FBE) This challenge was inspired bythe surprisingly delicious combination of Brookside chocolate, which you'll get to try a little later encouraging you to try new or other surprisingly delicious things.

– I love chocolate! – (FBE) And as always, if you eat any of these foods, you get a point.

For each point you get, your punishment at the end will be slightly worse.

– Oh, okay, so there's a graduallevel of worse-ness.

– I always get major FOMO, 'cause the food that they keep for the very end is usually the one that you want to wait for.

– I don't get that luxury.

I always get the worst punishments, not the greatest foods.

♪ (accordion music) ♪ – (FBE) For the first combination, we've got a peanut butter and onion sandwich.

– Oh no, hell no.




– Wait!Cinnamon raisin bread with onions!? – (FBE) To accentuate the flavor combination.

This food was popularizedby the author Ernest Hemingway.

– I don't know about this.

– (FBE) .



Mount Everest Special.

– I mean that, yeah, right?Like what do we say to that? I think that's the beauty of food, right? Just people can kinda create random things and whatever they want, and it's tailored to their preferences and what works for somedoesn't work for others.

– (FBE) Alright you guys, who wants to give this a try? – Oh my God, that bread looks, that smells so good.

You should smell it.

It's like freshly baked.

– Should I?- Bread.

Whoa, scared me!You went in for that thing.

– You should try it.

– I should? Ugh, I can't say no to you.

(laughs)- Aw! (laughs) (buzzer rings) – Mmm, oh wow! – Is it, yeah.

– I'm pleasantly surprised.

It's like Thanksgiving! – I like peanut butter and banana, that's fun, this is awful.

– Probably won't be super tempted.

(laughs) – Oh no.

– The onions, it's weird that I associate onions with burgers, because I smell a Whopper right now.

That's how strong these onions are.

Oh, now it smells like.



– Yeah.

– A locker room.

Get it out of here! – Yeah, we're gonna say no to this.

(Alberto coughs) – It's a bunch of things that I likeand then things that I don't like.

– You know, there's also a visual thing when it comes to food, and I feel like definitely does notmeet that criteria either.

– Sorry Hemingway!I like your books, but not your taste in sandwiches.

I convinced myself out of it, as I'm saying it.

(Jordan gasps) – (laughs) I'm so excited.

– We're shook right now.

– It smells really good.

– It does smell really good.

I feel like, mmm.

He's giving in, hard pass for me.

I'm good on this one.

(buzzer rings) (laughs) – Oh baby.

The cheese is almost a little melty, so like the thickness of it is starting to like seepacross the chocolate, so the chocolate itself is becominga little richer, a little thicker.

I like.

– I'm gonna like do it for the both of us.

– (gasps) Okay! – 'Cause I feel like then I can report to you.

– Okay, okay, let me know, let me know.

– Okay.

– That's good.

(buzzer rings)- Mmm.

Whoa, my world is changed! We ship it.

– (laughs) We ship the cheeseand hot chocolate.

– You know, when I was watching the video, I thought I could take it, but looking at it, it looks kinda gross, so I'm alright.

– I just feel like it's too basicfor me to lose something to, so I'm gonna pass on this one.

– Yeah.

♪ (accordion music) ♪ – (FBE) For our next combination, let's see if you'll be tempted by hot dogs and jelly.

Of course, our chef didn't just slather some grape preserves on a wiener, he made an incredible.

– Hmm.

– Ah! – I can't tell what it smells like!I'm still gonna try it.

(buzzer rings) – I just like have never thoughtof making a hot dog sweet, and I think that aspect of itis new and enticing for me, especially for my taste buds right now.

And I like that, so I'mprobably gonna go home and recreate this and fail miserably, but still trying it.

– You know what?I'm sold.

I wanna try it! (laughs) (buzzer rings)- Oh no.

(buzzer rings) No.

Sorry whoever created that.

I am not a fan.

– This is breakfast!- It's like if you had toast with jam on it.

– Like some sausage on the side.

I really like this! I think this is my favorite! (both laugh) – I'm trying this, are you trying this? – I'm not trying this.

– I'm gonna try this! – I'm good off this one.

(buzzer rings) – I'm not necessarily a fan of the jelly, I could've had this jelly-less, but the flavors work together and then the textures.

Now while this is good, I would never order this.

– At first I was not with it, but now I'm just gonna go ahead and just take the L on it.

(buzzer rings) It's like a subtle hint of banana, and that's why I don't hate it, but eh, I wouldn't eat itmore than once.

– I never thought I'd likebanana on pizza so much, 'cause I'm used to eatinglike Hawaiian pizzas with the pineapples in them, but this is way better.

You know, mix these two flavorsand see what it tastes like, 'cause that, I haven't tried before.
