– Yes, yes, yes – Hey, Matt – What's up dude? – Do you like lemonade? – I do – Do you like milk milk? – I also like that I know where this is going and I don't wanna

– It's going around the corner – I don't want to go around – Where the fudge is made – Mm – So yeah I think what we're going to do is we're going to try store-bought lemonades and we're gonna rank 'em to help people out there make good summertime beverage choices

– Okay yeah, you mean as opposed to like alcoholic beverages It's like this is just a fun sugary drink– – No – That we can all enjoy – This is super wholesome and I think what I wanna do is before, let's have a sip of lemonade – Okay

– And let's just say something wholesome to each other – Okay I love that – 'Cause this is a nice, wholesome segment featuring two good boys – Yeah we're boys, nice boys – (chuckles) A couple of nice boys

– We're boys nice – Yeah so looks like today's first lemonade is a Capri Sun – Oh this is classic, this is like my childhood – Yeah, Matt, you know how we did it– – How did you do it? – When I was growing up? – Oh you're gonna do from the bottom, huh? – Boom! – Yeah, yeah – Uh! – I still can't get the straw

– I know – I can't even get it out the plastic – This is hard I'm so embarrassed, please cut this out of me trying to stab the Sun – (chuckles) I'm doing it regular way

– Why can't I do this? – I'm doing it regular– – I might have to too – I can't throw a baseball anymore either – Oh there we go – All right you got 'em? – Hey – I did it regular

– Whoa – Hey, uh-oh – Oh I forgot to say something wholesome – You first – I sure do love it when pies cool on windowsills

– Mm – Now you go – Okay I like reading to get me to sleep at night – Oh that's nice

Healthier than turning on the TV – That's right or going through the phone, going through the phone is no good – You get to REM sleep faster – Yes yes, I like that REM – This is good, this is really good

– It's got that classic flavor where you're just like, I know it's mostly high fructose corn syrup but I don't even care – Yeah no, this is good, I'm getting some real childhood vibes right now Just want my– – Luncha– – Dad to say he's proud of me – Oh I thought you were gonna say Lunchables but that's also wholesome – I would also like a Lunchable

– Mm, oh yeah – Yeah I like this way more than I thought I was going to It's really good – This was like, to bring it back to baseball – Please

– After baseball games we would all get, everyone get Capri Sun and they would get me Gusher's fruit snacks, a lot of sugar after – Yeah – 'Cause they were like you earned all those calories already – Yeah, put some in there – Put some back in there, exactly

– Yeah you know, I'm kind of an Arnold Palmer guy – Yeah? – So it'd be nice to have a little iced tea with these – That would be nice – But what can you do? – That's different game – What can you do? Totally different segment

– Mm-hmm – Oh time for some Minute Maid – Okay, now before we're gonna rank these, I say we rank them the best here – Okay – And then the worst over there and right now this is neutral

– Yeah so let's– – We're galling this one neutral – Yeah call it neutral, whoop – All right – Yeah oh let's say something wholesome and have a sip – Mm-kay

(can clicks) – You know, if you're talking books, ain't nothing beats the bible – Mm – Mm – Mm Only the first half of the bible is real

(Jordan chuckles) (crew laughs) – Really, Matt Lieb? Is that true, Matt Lieb? (chuckles) – Sorry (both laughing) That's wholesome to everyone in my synagogue but– (Jordan chuckles) – We go to very different synagogues, you and I – Very different, very, very – Yeah, this is good This is a little more sugary than this

I don't know which one actually has more sugar– – Yeah – But to me, this is more like a soda – Yeah it feels like because it's in a can, definitely they were like we gotta make it more tart for the kids to enjoy – Yeah – And I know that tartness is supposed to be part of the whole lemonade experience but this is overdoing it

– Yeah, I think it is too So right now if we're going, so let's say Capri Sun, I think we both like more – Oh definitely – And Minute Maid we both like a little less – Okay

– Oh so this is Whole Foods 365 – Oh – It's Whole Foods discount brand – Right right right, that's their own home brand Home brewed

– My cat liked that cat food for awhile – Oh yeah? – Then she stopped liking it – Cats are finicky like that – They are very finicky animals – Yeah after awhile they're like you can do better than this

Come on Jordan – Let's say something wholesome – Okay – Cats are finicky animals – Mm

Oh my gosh – Yeah Oh I'm kind of mad I feel like I am just like a cartoon of a hipster 'cause I like the Whole Foods one best – Yeah yeah yeah, it's more expensive, that's why it's better

– I don't think the 365 is that expensive, but it's gotta be more than this – It's gotta be more expensive than these, right? – It's probably not more than the Minute Maid though – Really 'cause it's name brand? – But it's comparable Yeah this is really good, it's nice Yeah again, it's not overly sweet

It's with a little tart lemon, very refreshing I could drink a big, how much we got for that, okay – You know what, the ice is doing it This is the one thing that things like Capri Sun and Minute Maid are missing is you gotta put it in ice – Yeah– – Now of course that's not a function of the brand

We did that here, someone did that Someone was paid to do that so you gotta pay someone to put ice in your lemonade – Have we agreed on all these lemonades so far? – I mean I think so This is so far my favorite – Yeah me too so 365, Capri Sun, Minute Maid

– We'll put this– – Now what do we got now? – Here so that people see, now is this blocking us? (crew laughs) – It's very big – Let's see, what's this guy? This is a fun looking jug – Yeah – Fat bottom jugs, you make the rockin' world go round – Califa

Wiz Khalifa Farms – (chuckles) It's probably not Wiz Khalifa, it might be – Could be I wouldn't be surprised, listen, branding goes all ways When you're a musician, you gotta make shirts

Paul Newman has his own lemonade too – Famous rapper Paul Newman – Famous rapper Paul Newman – Yeah so this is Meijer lemonade, all natural home style from Califa Farms I've never had anything from this brand but it's pretty good, 15% juice

– Ah ah ah ah ah ah, something wholesome – Mm – I'll start I love all of my nieces and nephews equally – Mm-hmm

– Even though they are skilled at very different things – I wish to someday touch a horse's mane – Mm (chuckles) – Yeah – All right now we're getting to the– – This is a little more lemony

– Yeah, more lemony without that smack of sourness – Mm-hmm – This is, this is almost, it's tame, it's a mild lemonade – Oh interesting, I feel like to me, I'm tasting more tart – You're tasting more tart? – But maybe my tongue is just different than your tongue

– Mm, maybe your tongue got burned from all the other ones – Could be Yeah, I like this a little bit less than the Whole Foods but still pretty good and still I think more than the other ones – Mm, yeah, yeah, let me, hold on Do I drink weird? – You do, yeah, you drink a little weird

You make weird sounds too – Yeah I have to hold with two hands, it's a thing 'Cause when I hold with one hand I have these shaky hands so it looks like I'm nervous but I'm not, I'm just– – You look like a giant six-year-old (both chuckle) – Ba-ba – Oh Dad

– Give me my ba-ba, Dad – Where do we go when we die? – (chuckles) I did ask him that – Yeah around six, you start being curious about death – He said, "The cemetery" It's like okay

– What do you think, are we still simpatico on this or do you like it better than this? – I think I do, I think it's my favorite one so far – Okay so for you it's this – I'm going Califa – But yeah – Yo

♪ Black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yell ♪ That is Wiz Khalifa, right? Someone, oh (crew laughs) – Oh (whimpers) God, yeah, okay Thumbs up – Oh how embarrassing that would be – All right, is this our final, oh no

Oh hey look at this – Ah! – Santa Cruz Organic Fun story – Fun fact – Fun story everyone

– Yeah – Matt and I went to college together at UC Santa Cruz and we hated each other – Oh we could not stand, stab, stab, stab, stab – We were stabbin' each other – It was really– – Yeah

– But now we love each other – That's true – That is the nicest– – Our stab wounds have healed – Yeah everything has healed, we grew as people – Mm-hmm

Yeah are these, did I miss, okay So here's the glass, Santa Cruz Organic Did you know of the lemonade factory when you went to– – No, I did not, that is definitely not the That's not what I went to Santa Cruz for was the lemonade consumption – This is made at their corporate headquarters 37 Speedway Avenue in Chico, California – What a lie – Lies, lots of lying

– That is ridiculous Why would they– – Jug – Name it Santa Cruz? – I don't know honestly – Mm, these people, oh oh Something nice

– Let's see I'm rewatching My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic – I love it Stab wounds heal with love – Ooh boy

I mean, Chico or not, this is good You don't like it? – Oh no I hate it – You really hate it – I hate this one – Look at your face

Look at your little face how much you hate it – It's just 'cause it was so different than all the other ones, this one's too different – I like how slight it is I like how it's a little bit watery – It is very watery

– I like how it's not like super sweet Boy yeah, this is great, this would be nice in a cocktail You could put a little vodka in here – I'm sober now – Well I could put a little vodka in it

– You could, I could watch (both chuckle) We're allowed– – You love watching me drink vodka, don't you? – It's one of my favorite things to do (Jordan chuckles) I'm gonna try drinking with one hand at some point – We're looking at a Google Map here This is four hours away from UC Santa Cruz

– Wow – Well this is, yeah – I mean, it's four hours away at this time of day If it were rush hour– – Yeah rush hour – Forget about it, forget about it

– Oh it'd be five hours – Yeah, yeah, at least – So yeah disingenuous naming aside, this is my favorite, this is really good – Yeah – But I bet this is like a more premium item

I bet this costs way more – Yeah yeah yeah yeah, for sure All right, well I don't even know where to rate that since I hated it the most and you liked it– – Yeah and I liked it the most – We put it– – Let's just put it– – Right in the middle – Right here in the middle

– I was gonna stack them but that's a dangerous game – Yeah don't stack these – All right, something new – Yeah, okay, so this is– (crew laughs) This is Simply Lemonade – Ah, this is what I always drink

– You like Simply, you're simply man? – I'm a simple man – Yeah you're a simple man – I like a simple lemonade – Okay – Yeah

– Yeah, something wholesome – I enjoy it, it's first of all non-GMO, it says right there – That's important – Yeah I think I know what it means – Yeah I don't know exactly what a GMO is but I don't want any of them

– Yeah yeah – Get them out of here – Go away, GMO! – Get on outta here! – You're not good, GMO – Ooh – Get out of my town

(both chuckle) – They don't have to leave town – All right, okay, you can stay – Something wholesome I owe everything to Mommy – Aw

I love both my parents equally although their skill sets are different (crew laughs) – I don't like this, I know I'm sorry this is your brand but boy, yeah, this is too sweet for me This to me is more similar to this This is more soda-like – After trying literally any other lemonade today, I kind of realized I've really– – Your choice is wrong

– I've been limiting myself in my lemonade choices for a long, long time And I think it's because this is the lemonade that my parents buy in bulk at like Costco and stuff like that so– – You have kind of a lemonade Stockholm syndrome – A little bit, a little bit, it's just like, lemonade hurts me because it loves me, you know what I mean but– – I don't (both laugh) This is weird but I'll go with you on that so maybe do we like this more or less than the Minute Maid? – I think I still like it more than Minute Maid – I like it a little more too but to me, this is a similar product so yeah, how are we with this? Meijer's first

– Well let's– – Let's scoot 'em – Let's scoot 'em I think the microphone is my third favorite lemonade – Oh love that microphone – Mm-hmm, there we go

– So yeah so Meijer's we both liked a lot – Yeah we did – You liked it a little more than I did Whole Foods 365 we both liked a lot – We loved it

– Santa Cruz you couldn't stand – Don't like it – And I loved – It's filled with lies – (chuckles) You're from Chico, admit it

– Go away You're worse than GMOs – Capri Sun we both kinda thought had a fun nostalgia vibe – Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah – Simply not nuts about and Minute Maid not nuts about

– Yeah – What a fun segment – What fun times we've had – Look at these two good boys and no one swore – No one swore one time
