A1 and HP Sauce both taste like crap.

Blake Davenport on August 31, 2021 at 5:43 pm

I just died about this A1 gugugugugu lol

I'm with Link's wife on this one. A1 makes it better lol sorry not sorry

I also am a packet WOman!
Is it because they're fresher due to the turnover of fast food/delivery? Are packets better because they're mainly in a type of foil that reflects light? Ration of air to portion of sauce? If you bought a box of packets, would they taste not as good at the end? Lots of questions, thanks for keeping me curious πŸ˜€

Due to Covid, there was a massive packet shortage due to more people taking out. So most likely, Packets would be the "freshest". This whole test is invalid unless you were using Plastic/Bottles/Packets that were packaged at the same time, as age will alter the flavoring to some degree.

That is an excellent point!

I loved the sound effects for the A1 Christy story lol

my wife and I started watching your show 5 yrs ago and the only thing we would like to see change is the answers to the question wouldn't be posted on screen so early. that would allow us to play along.

Julie Wood on August 13, 2021 at 4:12 pm

I feel the same way!

Kelsi Gray on August 10, 2021 at 2:04 am

I've been watching since late 2012 to early 2013 (memory is hazy) and always thought this too! Sometimes I'll try and ignore the answer and guess but half the time I just end up accidentally reading the answer anyway.

Packets are elite, just like the drinks you get at fast food places compared to supermarket.. they have the extra pizazz ✨ 🀣🀣

Cristen Miller on August 7, 2021 at 10:26 pm

The only time A1 tastes good is with a potato. No other way. Just potato.

Cidne Treen on August 7, 2021 at 11:04 pm

Just put the last bit on the actual show. We love y'all, but mythical society is not providing anything we don't already have. Glad I didn't spend any money (again) on this content. Also, thanks, Josh.

Kay Shepard on August 7, 2021 at 2:51 pm

Have you considered that you're just savory packet men and not sweet packet men? I feel like honey is the next logical test for that one.

Adam Temple on August 7, 2021 at 3:26 am

Thank you for the bonus round. This episode was a lot of fun. condiments from packets are good. I would have never however, thought that they were superior to plastic and glass bottles. Interesting.

Simon on August 7, 2021 at 11:17 am

Chill bruh go to bed

Adam Temple on August 7, 2021 at 6:26 pm

just got the record, I've been to bed. I get up at 6 a.m. so that I can watch G.M.M. before going to work.

Laurie Owen on August 7, 2021 at 3:30 am

My family is obsessed with Heinz57 sauce. Bottles in my house empty themselves in no time.
I am guilty of telling the same stories over and over till my listeners beg me to stop! Or just quickly finish the story so conversation can move on!πŸ˜‚

Brooke Wells on August 7, 2021 at 2:16 am

Genuinely think it's moreso that the packets are opaque unlike both the glass and plastic bottles, and that there's no way for air to get in before eating. If you do the trick of opening your ketchup packet along the edge so you can dip your fry into the packet it tastes the same.

Gina Whitt on August 7, 2021 at 1:39 am

We need a packet men shirt !!

Chase!! πŸ₯°πŸ™πŸ»

I'm with y'all, A-1 sucks. I don't think I've eaten that stuff since I was, like, 4. My ish was Worcestershire sauce, until I discovered au jus. Just the meat juices is all you need. If you need more than that, somebody burnt your meat. πŸ‘€

I wonder if aeration is a factor. I mean, it's possible...? But I suspect it's packaging. Glass allows the most light (and maybe even magnifies it) and light degrades stuff anyway...? I dunno. It was interesting, though! Thanks, Packet Menℒ️! 😁 Semper Mythicon! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ€˜πŸ»

My dad jokes are A1

So is my steak

Elizabeth on August 6, 2021 at 5:13 pm

The executives of the A1 Steak Sauce Company were impressed with their
new billboard.

It showed a handsome-husband-type guy being served a large plate of
steak and potatoes seated at a table in what appeared to be a smart
restaurant. An attractive, well endowed, young blonde waitress was
standing over him, handing him a bottle of A1 sauce.

Originally they had titled the billboard, "What Does She Know About Your Husband That You Don't?"

But after complaints from the public, that the ad was too suggestive,
they changed the headline.

Now it reads: "He Gets It Downtown, Why Not Give It To Him At Home?"

Erica Darnell on August 7, 2021 at 1:06 am

HA!! That's great. πŸ˜‚ But if he needs A-1 for what he's getting downtown, then what he's having at home is probably better anyway! 😏

Elizabeth on August 7, 2021 at 1:07 am

you're so saucy 😏 what the heck? πŸ˜‚

Erica Darnell on August 7, 2021 at 4:58 pm
