  • Baked hot cheetos are better than regular Cheetos imo

  • It's not a chip but reduced fat cheezits are where it's at

  • I think they are biased. I would have preferred if it was a blind taste test

  • I’m i the only one that loves the baked chips more like the hot Cheetos and ruffles


  • The reason why they are low fat is because there is not as much, making you not consume as many calories.

  • *lumpy root bulge* *you just disrespected that potato*

  • I like baked Cheetos a LOT more than original...

  • Gmm squad where you at?

  • Baked lays/ruffles, the original flavor, are far superior to the original.

  • I just want to bring up that fat isn't inherently bad for you. The only fat that is bad for you is Trans and rancid fats, saturated it neutral and unsaturated it good for you (as long as it isn't rancid) These chips can be better for you since they aren't taking fat our really, they are just not frying it. Oils (fat) heated too high go rancid and are very bad for you, that's why sometimes saturated fats like butter are better. Thing is you need to watch out because many "low fat" foods take out fats that don't need to be taken out and replace them with sugar which is much worse for you.

  • Also Link drinks 8 glasses of water a day?! And I thought I was a water freak

  • Link: nobody eats the whole bag Everyone watching this video: *understatement of the century*

  • that hoodie is awesome!

  • Baked chips and healthy chips are sooo good

  • 4:20 Did anyone else think "if you made a serving of RUFFLEY 15 chips" ?

  • 0:30 rip to that potatoe

  • what if the diffrentses they and cencing between the two are bios knowing which one is which so there going at a sumption on which is better

  • Doritos are corn, not potato. This test in invalid. :D

  • Good boy Rhett. Your thoughts on the low fat being a sham is correct. Caloric intake is more important to watch rather than the fat. Fat is the component in food that helps to let a person know they are satiated or full when eating. When you have something with less fat in it you keep eating and eating and eating, and that’s where the calories will get you because you are more than what your body might need at the time.

  • Baked ruffles are so much better

  • I actually really like the baked lays and baked ruffles more than the regular because they are less greasy.

  • I personally like the baked chips better than regular.

  • This should have been a blind folded game .

  • I eat baked chips just because I hate very salty chips

  • i like how the best tasting chip was the one that was reduced sodium and not reduced or low fat.


  • IDK baked ruffles cheddar is like cocaine.

  • baked cheetos > regular cheetos

  • I don’t understand why people make low cal junk food if u want low cal stuff just eat celery

  • Wish this was a blindfold test

  • Studies have shown that unless you naturally have high blood pressure (and even then) the amount of salt you consume doesn’t affect your health as long as you drink enough water so you don’t get dehydrated. And your body lets you know when you’re dehydrated, it’s called thirst.

  • The test should have been blind folded

  • That's a half hour of laundry 🤣

  • Can everyone just remember that we are watching two grown men eat chips

  • this video is personification of millennials

  • i think it’s better to try it blindfolded?

  • Spicy sweet chili doritos> literally any other chip ever

  • We had to have the reduced fat Doritos in our school cafeteria

  • i drink 5+ bottles of 16.9 OZ of water every day, just cause we dont buy anything else to drink and this is all we have xD

  • Common myth that potatoes are unhealthy, unless they're fried or covered in cheese like people do they're not

  • This made me so hungry that I had to pause it at 5:00 in to get some potato chips

  • You don't want to mess with an Irishman potatoes

  • I'm glad he didn't drink more water since there is risk of water poisoning

  • Strangely i always find myself watching these at nighttime

  • Baked>Non Baked

  • Lay’s baked tastes better.

  • Please do will it salsa

  • It’s a fact that baked chips are better than regular. The first time I heavily disagree with the boys

  • I live on a small hippie island, my drive way is 4 minutes there and back, now getting to the mailbox, that’s like a 10 minute walk

  • That rock snapped after that video and all those kids are dead, The End... life huh?

  • Link's hoodie's lit af!!😎😎

  • 9:15 Link said shit lol

  • Hi Brynn!!!

  • U read that if you drink 16 cups of water a die it can kill you!!!

  • some potato abuse warning would've been nice

  • Am I the only one who gets hungry from these videos?

  • Reduced fat Doritos are garbage. That’s all they offer at my school

  • I’m waiting to buy that sweater please restock

  • That’s a lot of pattern fellas

  • Playback speeds: 0.50x = Drunk Normal = Stoned 1.50x = Cocaine 2.00x = G/Meth

  • This was actually a really informative taste test - if I ate chips regularly this would save me a lot of time trying to decide which "healthier" chip is worth buying. Also, the unique comparison examples (jogging for 4 extra minutes, etc.) were interesting to think about. ✌️

  • 13:11 sounds like the start of a song

  • Links sweater is fire 👌

  • Somebody explain me what is Kettle chips really?

  • Yeah, I’m not a fan of the new intro

  • Who else thinks GMM is on a comeback?

  • When did the intro change?

  • Healthy chips?

  • Hey, ive been on that rock! Its in San Diego

  • Typically you don't eat a whole bag......You don't? A serving is 12 chips...Nobody eat 12 chips.....They don't?

  • For my school they serve a lot of types of chips, and their for 50¢

  • I'm glad he did not drink all that water at once. It can kill you. Water intoxication is real.

  • You disrespected the potato "I mashed it" 😂

  • Please do a ranch dressing blind taste test.

  • I have the reduced fat doritos at school

  • That new intro sure caught my attention! Im behind on watching in order but this one just caught my eye too much! lol

  • That hoodie is dope af

  • Your show makes me fat

  • Baked Cheddar Cheese and Sour Cream Ruffles are THE BEST CHIPS EVER! I liiiiiiive.

  • Does "Most cable providers" apply to all countries with US-tv?

  • Duee thst hoodie fire

  • Ruffles are so salty, baked is way better!!!!!!

  • So funny

  • i hate how scripted this show has come. like to the point where they have props ready. also whats with this new theme?? i still love gmm tho

  • I like the baked hot Cheetos they taste different but still really good

  • Is rhett in a the tv show lab rats

  • I tried a baked potato chip in 3rd grade once, apparently I had a gag reflex.

  • does anyone else get excited when they talk about the place you live like I live on Cape Cod and got excited when they at the chips cause the factory is down the street from me

  • Oml this made me so hungry lol

  • They make oven baked 79%less fat barbecue lays and I eat them and in my opinion they taste better than original

  • Prob be better blindfolded

  • All of lay’s lightly salted chips are better than the original

  • I like the lightly salted bbq chips better too

  • Lol I was kind of scared link was actually going to drink all of that water

  • I’m watching people eat chips I’m this bored

  • Hot Cheetos baked are way better than the regular

  • He ruined thet potato BLYAT

  • my school ONLY has the reduced fat doritos and theyre like if you took a dorito, licked it, and then put them back in the bag

  • Reduced fat baked lays are better than original
