Hi Mike and Tom! My best friend Jessica's birthday is coming up very soon, and MATES is one of the things we share and love so much together (gay). We listen to it when it's just the two of us on road trips. We talk about snacks we'd like to send you (but haven't yet) (lazy). We remind each other of our favorite parts of our favorite ones (Haagen-Dazs, and more recently, Guacamole). Now, here's the question: how can I get her a MATES-related birthday present? Need your help! Thanks, Rebecca
Best thing to do would be to PICK a bunch of snacks, EAT a bunch of snacks, RATE a bunch of snacks. Then make yourselves throw up. Happy birthday.
I'm sure you've been told this a zillion times already but, on the off chance you haven't, Kit Kats are originally from York, England. However, Hersheys make US Kit Kats not Nestle so they may well be unique, but they aren't the original! May I also suggest freezing the occasional Kit Kat on a hot summers day? Something to be enjoyed all over the world, wherever you are.
You are just a goddamned Kit Kat know it all, aren’t you? A GOD DAMNED KIT KAT KNOW IT ALL!!!
Now obviously ratings are set in stone and obviously great thought and deliberation goes in to them, but I recently went back and reviewed Cold Pizza again, and I am still baffled at the 1 submitted by Mr. Cavanagh. I was wondering if any changes of heart occurred? Any regrets?
When all the snacks are sampled, we will go back and revisit old snacks. Our calculations tell us that should happen in August of 2140.
I'm getting caught up on my MATES, and I just got to the guacamole episode. Tom, I too developed an avocado allergy after visiting New Zealand! It's official, New Zealand is out to get the avocado industry. We must put a stop to this! Also, beware of bananas and latex, the allergies are connected, and when you are allergic to one you are often allergic to the others. Harsh.... I know....
It’s not a coincidence that “Lord of the Rings” was also shot in New Zealand. Clearly the Kiwis have magic powers and short people.
We had just started getting addicted to Pirate's Booty when we first started listening/viewing - that's how we discovered you. Your episode on PB inspired us to order all of the flavors. Veggie - godawful - smells like the bottom of an aquarium. Chocolate - awful - smells like burnt hair, looks like poo. BBQ - bad - has distinct BBQ flavor, but looks disgusting. Sour Cream & Onion - decent - tangy twist alternative to Aged Cheddar, but not worth it. We should've listened to you.
There is no “I told you so” in the snack game. But yeah. We told you so.
