Breakfast cereal is a staple of many childhoods. Trying to get your parents to buy you the cool cereal with the fun and colorful box? Been there, done that! Now that Food Theory exists, I can go back and try to answer some of the questions that have haunted me since childhood. Questions like, what the heck do Apple Jacks actually taste like? They never say they taste just like apples despite it being in the name! So what flavor are they and WHY do they taste awfully close to their competition - Froot Loops? Get your cereal bowls ready, Theorists!

  • HEY MATPAT! So I have an idea for your fourth channel (to complete the little circle thing in all of your channel logos, food theory being the third one). It could be Life Theory, involving things in the real world. Things like “why do people enjoy __ so much?” You could get I to more science and math stuff, because both science and math are part of real life. Personally, if you did make this, I would love for you to explain why schools teach us stuff we might not even need in the real world. I think that’s a question we all want the answer to. Well, I doubt you’ll actually be reading this comment, but I’m gonna do my best to get it in your sight.

  • Apple Jacks has apple juice, dried apples, and cinnamon. Hence, they taste like apple and cinnamon. I've always loved them for years.

  • I remember once hearing about how colored syrups in shave ices are actually all the same flavor. They mentioned that because our minds think or expect a certain flavor, it causes us to think that we're tasting a specific flavor even though it's the same...... And if you were wondering, yeah, I did indeed hear this from Persona 5...

  • Huh, for me the Froot loops always tasted the same, I also remember being disappointed that they didn't taste like any fruit when I was a kid.

  • "The nice thing about having a channel to do this, we can do the tests ourself." Does MatPat think non-youtubers are too poor to afford cereal to do tests?

  • Can you make vids on international foods or chains pls? I watched until the final loop meme but didn't know anything about that or count chacula for that matter :)

  • So, he literally answered the question in 6 minutes and added an extra 14 just to clarify Froot Loops all are the same flavor. Haha nice!

  • Apple Jacks taste like raspberries so maybe the raspberry

    Ethan OrozcoEthan OrozcoNapja
  • So glad I grew up along side cheerios... And not apple Jacks or Fr00t L00ps!

  • Kix and Trix are secretly the same. Cocoa Puffs too. Once people realized this they brought back the fruit shapes. Can you do a video about how they ruined Trix? It used to be orgasmic. And that’s not like, oh you’re just grown up now, your taste palette is different. NOPE. They ruined it. They ruined 99% of cereals in fact. But Trix is by far the most egregious. Tastes like horse food.

  • I feel like a better test than attempting to guess the flavor, would have been to simply guess whether or not the color was the same as the last one. This doesn't require memorization of colors and only requires a noticeable difference in taste. Attempting to guess the color based on the flavor doesn't test if they taste different, but rather if the taste is different enough to be memoizable.

    Green DestroyerGreen Destroyer2 napja
  • You only thought that the froot loops tasted different is because your brain made it that way. When you think, well, the green one is lime, the yellow one is lemon, the orange one is orange, etc. So when you eat froot loops, your mind changes the flavors, so you taste a hint of orange in an orange-colored froot loop, same with all the other flavors.

  • Ok but can we talk about the kix slogan "kid tested mother approved" I've always hated that

    Not Quite FunnyNot Quite Funny2 napja
  • I find it interesting Steph could tell right away what she was tasting to the point of paranoia, could instantly tell the first switch, but got murky after that. Maybe bc the flavour profile is so similar and once she introduced cinnamon to the mix in her mouth, since its a more dominant flavour out of the mix of them, that it ended up taste-blinding her. I wonder if it would be the same case had you done apple jacks first, then froot loops afterwards
