Here at Chow Bella, we have a special, unclogged space in our bacon-wrapped hearts for Epic Mealtime; a calorie-laden cooking show making waves of Jack Daniels BBQ sauce on Youtube.
Just about the only thing funnier than watching Epic Mealtime bacon weave a bacon dream is watching children of various ages watching Epic Mealtime bacon weave a bacon dream. Enter Kids React, a Youtube series that exposes children to the wacky world of internet videos to get their perspective on them.
This week's episode (above) gave kids, between the ages of 5 and 14, a first-hand look at Epic Mealtime's Sloppy Big Ben Roethlisberger episode. You'll remember that as the episode in which they successfully cooked a 50-pound bacon cheeseburger totaling more than 100,000 calories.
How did the kids react?
6-year-old Morgan: "Get me a giant burger! God!"
10-year-old Shannon: "They made a 50-pound burger and then filmed a guy eating it. Stupid."
11-year-old Jake: "I don't even think Man Vs. Food does things like this."
You're damn right, kid. You're damn right.
