Baby Food Challenge

The Oxford Dictionary defines baby food as, “pureed solid food suitable for babies.” I define baby food as taking the beef stew mom made for dinner and making it into a smoothie. Doesn’t that sound tasty? (No… the answer is NO!!!!!)

If you’re curious what baby food tastes like but you don’t have the guts to go all in and try Gerber’s Sweet Potato Turkey with Mixed Grain & Carrot (yes, that’s a real thing), you can watch us try baby food! Trust me, our facial reactions are a direct link to our taste buds. Check it out in the video below!

Welcome back, babysitters! You know, I’ve taken care of a lot of babies and one thing I’ve learned is that it’s hard being a baby.

That’s true. I mean you can’t talk, so the only way to communicate is to cry. And you have to wait for someone to notice that you have a dirty diaper. That alone seems pretty awful.

True! And the worst thing of all, no french fries, no Taco Bell, no skittles …

I know! Everything babies eat looks like it’s already been chewed up and spit back out!

That’s why we’re going to taste-test some baby foods today!

Yeah! I mean, what?

Look, I mean babies eat this stuff all the time and sometimes they even look like they’re enjoying it. So, some of it might taste good.

I mean if you say so.

Great! Let’s get right to it. We’ll each take turns trying baby food. We’ll try to identify the food first and then rank it from one to five. Five being tasty and one being downright gross. You ready?

I’m so not ready for this.

Bring out the baby food! All right, ready?


Open your mouth.

Ew! That’s disgusting!

What do you think it is?

Um … carrot?

No. It’s sweet corn and green beans.

Ew! That was disgusting!

Okay. What would you rate that one?


I think this one will be, like, pretty good. Yeah. Okay … open.

Oh my. That’s really gross. That’s really gross. Um … Um … What is it?


Oh my god. That’s so gross!


Yeah, yeah. It’s really gross.

It tastes like dirt and plastic.

That’s like …

That’s the worst one so far.

It’s definitely a zero.

I think this one is going to be okay. We’ll see how you react. All right, open. What do you think it is? Awfully bad.

That one is not that bad at all.

If you don’t get this one, I might be a little mad.

It tastes like apples and like kind of strawberries.

Apples and strawberries, final answer?

Sure, okay.

It’s just apples.


Does it taste like applesauce?

I don’t know. Like it does …

It looks like applesauce.

It definitely looks like applesauce.

That does taste like applesauce. Would you say that’s the best one you tasted so far?

Yes. I’d give that one a five.

Yeah, most definitely.

Yeah, that one was actually pretty good. Yeah, I wouldn’t mind eating it.

Me neither. Like I would definitely eat that as a snack.

Okay. Open.

Why did you get me all of the gross ones?

What do you think it is?

Sweet potatoes? Is that what it?

Yep, yep.

That was gross!

It was like the carrots.

They’re both orange!

I know. I was like, oh my god it looks like the carrots. Let me try a little bit. Ew. No, that one’s worse than the carrots. This one is the worst one.

Yeah, I agree. You literally started me out with the two worst ones.

Okay. Now this corn and green beans actually taste fine.

Okay. This one actually looks really good.

That’s a lot!

Okay, what do you think it is?

I don’t … I really couldn’t tell you.

Ugh … does it have spinach in it?


I’m looking right now. It’s the pear, kale, and cucumber.

Yep. Was that one like … what does it taste like?

I’ll try it.

I don’t … I can’t even describe it. It tastes green. Like I definitely could taste that it was green. Yeah, I think that’s like maybe a two. Like it’s not a …

Yeah, maybe that one was a little better.

Definitely better than the carrots. Yeah, okay. This one might actually … I think it’s definitely gonna be better than the last one. Open.

That one’s definitely better than the last one.

What do you think it is?

Was it an apple?

Yeah, it has an apple in it. Do you taste anything else?

I don’t know it doesn’t taste just like apple, but I don’t know what it is.

You want me to tell you?


It’s apple, raspberry, and avocado.


Yeah, I didn’t know how like the avocado taste as gonna come across.

I don’t really taste the avocado; I just taste like apple and like something sweet.

It looks a little chunky.

It is.

That … I’m … I’m not mad. But it’s not like great.

Right, I’m not mad, but I’m not happy about it either.

Airplane it.

I don’t think you’ll get the last one cause I don’t … I don’t know.

Okay, I need to know.

Pumpkin and … what?


That’s weird. It definitely tasted like Fall. Like that’s definitely … taste, taste it.

Like you taste it and you’re like, wow, this is what Fall would taste like. It wasn’t bad. It’s interesting.

With apple and granola, that one’s not that bad.

You think this is for babies that are into hiking?



We think that that apple is so good, we’d eat it voluntarily.

On the other hand, the sweet potatoes and carrots are downright gross.

Yeah. Thanks for joining us and if you’re brave enough to try this at home share your favorite baby food in the comments below. By the way, if you haven’t subscribed to our channel yet, what are you doing? Subscribe below.
