We Tested the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo "Watch 'n' Sniff" Cards; Here's What We Smelled

Ready or not, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo once again will invade the pop cultural consciousness tonight when the second season of the infamous reality program debuts on TLC. And if you're one of the millions of viewers who plucked one of those "Watch 'n' Sniff" cards from the pages of People or Us Weekly, which are part of the summertime show's Smell-O-Vision-like stunt, it's going to be an experience for all your senses.

As we previously reported, viewers will use the scratch 'n' sniff gags in order to smell things depicted on the season's first two episodes. Like us, many Honey Boo Boo fans are probably wondering what particular scents -- either good or bad -- await them tonight. We decided to find out for ourselves, scratching and sniffing so that you didn't have to, although you probably will anyway.
