Ugh! - Just put this into perspective. you'd have to jog for four minutes. That's like getting the mail if you have a really long driveway. Really, really long driveway, or you're just jogging real slow. a 12 minute jog, a four minute job. - Okay. - [Rhett] So we're saying-- - [Link] That'll be a disappointment. - [Rhett] Reduced fat Baked Ruffles are-- - [Rhett and Link] Ugh, that's rough. 25% less fat. which is the calculations we made, if you ate a serving of roughly 15 chips, eat the whole can like-- - Okay let's eat first and then we'll play - It tastes like an old Pringle. - They do not have the crunch. I'm gonna try that. I think if I just isolate the crunch. - It's not a huge difference. - It's slightly different, mixed 'em up, you might not know. - The more I eat and go back and forth, the more they blend together. - Let's play two minutes of ping pong now. - I got a pink ball.

What is this, a blue-- - Don't worry about that. - I hang those up, man. But it's not bad. - Underwear, I don't fold those either. I just kinda throw 'em in a drawer. - I hate doing laundry.

It's like magic. - As much as I love folding laundry-- - I constantly smell like it. - These are definitely good enough. - Okay so Cape Cod Reduced Fat Chips-- - [Rhett and Link] Good enough! versus the reduced fat version. so we can only evaluate if you were to do a serving versus a serving. to make up the difference, okay? - Well, oh. So if you just do this. - Or if you need to be good at it. - If you just do this for five minutes, Now let's try 'em, let's taste it. Now that we know what that feels like. - That is a-- - It doesn't taste like a Dorito. - Doesn't at all. it's weird how the chip itself, I would think I'd gotten a off-brand. - Oh my gosh.

    “It taste like a Pringle that has lost something.” Haven’t they all?!

  • robbie smith

    I would take baked potato chips over original anyway I like the taste better

    sugar is bad for you. low fat foods are unnecessary and brought to you by the strongarm of sugar companies. you're not better off with low fat.

    I feel like ruffles baked chips and ruffles regular is a bad comparison. They are two totally different chips and the baked chips aren’t the “low fat” version on ruffles. It’s just a different type of chip.

  • Nick Wu

    It’s not fat we should be cutting out of our diets, it’s sugary foods

    I love baked lays chips more than the regular ones. The baked ones are crunchier, saltier, and taste so good.

  • Ally Rose

    The baked cheddar ruffles are honestly the only good ones
