  • At 5:54 in the video I thought my phone was falling but it was the screen moving 😂

  • im gonna goooooooo

  • it all makes sense ut why would a food commicial of all things be jimmy nutron

  • So coming from someone who worked for Domino's in the past, we weighed out our toppings. So to clear things up, there is a base line amount of cheese but with a "cheese pizza" cheese is a topping. So when you get a pepperoni pizza you're getting that base line amount of cheese and then your topping is pepperoni rather than more cheese. And then toppings (especially pepperoni) is based on quantity not weight. If I'm remembering correctly a large pizza is like 42 pepperonis? Where cheese IS based on weight. So it usually weighs more.


  • I call it pop

  • Oh my gosh OK

  • d

  • Abortion: murdering liberals since Roe v Wade! This is why I support abortion, it lowers the number of liberals. You don’t see conservatives murdering their children lmao

  • Yt: 20k comments! Me: cool! Ca- Yt: N O. Also: Imagine seeing a random dude outside a store with a phone taped on his forehead doing random hand gestures

  • Ahhhh the big mat

  • Wait, why're we not talking about the Oreo/milk mug cake?

  • I just noticed the MatDonald's

  • Add a bit of vanilla extract

  • So- GrubHub is actually.. GENIUS?

  • A taco is a hot dog and a hot dog is just it’s own thing because hot dogs were made before tacos because sandwiches are not bread stuck together it’s two bread pieces put separately but a hot dog is to buns that are comjoined

  • A ( i just eat the oreo)

  • There is a way to make an oreo cake with just milk, a mug, and Oreos

  • this seems like something that would be good to bring to a potluck

  • I’m more of a D type of person

  • Oreo mug cakes are good, just pop a few oreos and some milk in a mug and crush em up and mix em, add enough oreos to where it's a bit thick and put it in the microwave for about 2 mins, it has a better more chocolatey flavor.

  • Mat has more fun doing food videos than on the other channels

  • Your son is an angel dude, an angel

  • Ok, if they make a continuation of Jimmy neutron where they are all grown up and they aren't the same as the grub hub characters then that continuation will not be considered cannon

  • Your wife is pretty. You’re a good looking guy too. Have a good day

  • You are right

  • Hey nabisco. I didnt know they put theie logo in the middle of the oreo. It was a fear at some point in my country. We thought it was a christian cross and as a Muslim country we were sensitive and boycotted oreo (or tried to) until kids be like, nahh its different than the cross. And make excuses to eat a high calorie, sugar packed cookie

  • Why did I watch this

  • Snasberry taste like screen. Dont eat it

  • I love all your channels, I like it when Steph makes guest appearances, but this food theory is basically 50% her. It’s too much steph. You should have used the chance to get your audience used to the guy who does the game theory videos that I skip because they aren’t Matpat. She’s too much; the teeth, the corny puns (dad jokes not mom jokes), the conversations are too saccharine. She needs fewer lines.

  • alright time to stick the phone into the microwave

  • My mom loves Tate’s bake shop! They make alternative recipe cookies which are perfect for her, since she has celiac, type 2 diabetic, allergic to cows milk and lactose intolerance!

  • I'm from the mid west too. But I've always been a soda guy. I think I had a coke phase as a kid, but besides that I say soda or the name of the drink.

  • Researcher 7: 172 licks. MatPat: Good job! Researcher 3, you didn't make the cut.

  • Hydrox are discussing 🤮

  • Adorable kid.

  • why are we trying to stop food comas thay are the best there is nothing like a nice long nap after the bigest meal and you wake up and do it agen now i am going to go take a nap!

  • B

  • I’m D 100%. I’m so D.... uhm 😶 😳 But instead of having 2 sleeves empty I think the most empty sleeves/boxes, was like 25? Then I wonder why I’m very unfit and chubby Is that bad?

  • I remember Chuck E. Cheese one time and I freaked out about the amren choniks

  • 0:05 I eat Oreos sometimes with the cream, but I like the cookie better.

  • MatPat!!!! Ever since this video came out all of our local Harris Teeters are completely sold out of their pop! It was our go to and now we can't find it! Why, MatPat?!?? WHY!?!?
