Episode 014: Blind Taste Test, Doritos & Favorite Things: Food Edition

On today’s episode, we chat, once again, about our faaaaavorite thiiiiiings! This time though, we’re talking all about our food favorites. We have our first BLIND TASTE TEST and feed each other random things and try to guess what they are, like marshmallows, circus cookies, matcha green tea Kit Kats, and Cool Ranch Doritos. It’s a good time. Also, we totally spaced on taking a picture of the food we tested, because we were BLINDFOLDED. Oh well, here’s a reenactment.

After taste-testing, we chatted the important things like all of our related-to-food favorites including: our favorite local restaurants, favorite food magazines, favorite food-related phone apps, favorite food-themed movies, favorite family recipes, our favorite things about being dietitians, and even our favorite weird food habits. Again, these are great table talk questions if you’re at a party or hanging out with family!
