The four contestants (and their flavors) are competing for a $1 Million prize. Before they are released, and we try them all, The Rob & Kat weigh in with their thoughts on which ones will be a winner and which ones will fizzle:
SOUTHERN BISCUITS AND GRAVY
This one is a big NO for me. I did not grow up eating biscuits and gravy, or really even knowing they were a thing. As a grown up that has spent the last nine years of his life in the midsouth, I can say that I have tried this regional delicacy... Unfortunately. Why do ya'll want to ruin delicious biscuits by covering them in gravy?! People, it's OK to NOT put gravy on EVERYTHING!
I love Southern cooking and I really love biscuits and gravy. This one could be a real contender. I am excited to try it and I think this one could have a very real chance at winning the competition.
This doesn't sound like a good idea to me either. Gyros aren't the worst thing in the world, but there's ALWAYS a more appetizing choice to me.
I could not disagree more with The Rob. Gyros are delicious. In fact they are one of my all time favorite foods. I am not sure how well the gyro flavors of lamb and tzatziki sauce will translate to a potato chip, but I am optimistic and looking forward to trying it.
NEW YORK REUBEN
After careful consideration... NO! Sour cream & onion, BBQ, jalapeno cheddar... THOSE a potato chip flavors. A Reuben sandwich is not.
This one holds little appeal to me. Although I would certainly try it if offered, I don't anticipate that I will like this one. I suppose the only way to know for sure is to crack open a bag and give it a try.
To be honest, I didn't even know what this meant. I was actually optimistic because I like French fries... But truffles are apparently, like, some underground fungus potentially more disgusting than even a mushroom. Are you KIDDING me?! NO!!! Why would I want to eat that? Go home potato chips, you're drunk.
The idea of this one is less than appetizing to me. I am not a fan of mushrooms, and since a truffle is an underground fungus, I just can't imagine that I will enjoy this one. Again, I would try it for the sake of giving an opinion, but I won't be looking forward to it. Can someone pass the biscuits and gravy, please?
