  • - The middle is so, look at that! Oh my God!
  • - Ooh, it's hot! (blows air)
  • ♪ (industrial intro) ♪
  • - (FBE) Today we have a pretty sweet episode for you.
  • - You made a pun, I hope it's dessert.
  • Candy, ice cream, pie, cake? I can keep going.
  • - (FBE) Because today is National Dessert Day!
  • - Oh, no way!
  • - Are we gonna get to eat a bunch of desserts?
  • Oh my, oh my God, I'm so excited.
  • - (FBE) So we're gonna go through the past 10 decades
  • and we're gonna see if you can match
  • the most popular dessert to the decade.
  • - Y'all had to mess it up.
  • See, I thought we was just gonna eat and enjoy our time.
  • - (FBE) So we will reveal the correct decade
  • after each dessert, rather than waiting to reveal it
  • at the end, so it will be sort of
  • like a process of elimination style game
  • where we see how you do.
  • - I mean, I mean, process of elimination,
  • you gotta get at least one right.
  • - (FBE) Alright, here's your list.
  • - Oh.
  • Whoa, from 1920, my God!
  • - (FBE) So first up, we have pineapple upside down cake!
  • - Oh, okay, wow, look at that.
  • Nice presentation, looks good.
  • - I feel like this was in a movie,
  • and that's why it was popular for so long.
  • - Mmm.
  • - Ooh!
  • - I feel like it's definitely before we cared about calories
  • or gluten or whatever, I don't even know what gluten is.
  • What is it? I don't know, but it's delicious.
  • - (FBE) So what decade do you think this was most popular in?
  • - So this one, I feel like I remember hearing a lot about it
  • when I was little, so I wanna do 1990.
  • - I would say 1920. Like a vintage dessert.
  • - I'm gonna say '50s.
  • I'd associate it with like I Love Lucy for some reason.
  • - I'm gonna go with the '60s.
  • - 1930? - '80s.
  • - Let's go 1950, because then I think I'd recognize the newer ones,
  • and this one's kinda vague, so let's put it somewhere in the middle.
  • - '40s, 'cause my dad was born in the 1950s,
  • and he liked it when he was a kid.
  • - (FBE) So actually, you are correct. (bell rings)
  • - Alright!
  • - I wasn't sure how early. (buzzer rings)
  • And I definitely wasn't thinking that early. (laughs)
  • - (FBE) Reportedly, the pineapple upside down cake was most popular
  • during the 1920s when the Hawaiian Pineapple company
  • sponsored a pineapple upside down recipe competition,
  • where the winner also inspired the addition of that cherry on top.
  • - And that's like the cherry on top! Literally.
  • - Did they accidentally drop it, (buzzer rings)
  • hence the upside down-ness of the cake?
  • Was that part of the history?
  • - (FBE) Next up, we have a party favorite.
  • - A party favorite.
  • - (FBE) Fondue! - (gasps) Ooh!
  • Oh my God, chocolate fondue.
  • I'm always wanted to go to a fondue place,
  • I've never been to one.
  • - Mmm, that's delicious dude.
  • - I love fondue.
  • I love when you go to like chocolate parties,
  • I used to throw a couple chocolate parties,
  • and then we'll have like pound cake cut up to the side,
  • and strawberries and bananas.
  • - (FBE) What decade do you think this was most popular?
  • - This one, I'm gonna go with 1940s?
  • - I'll put it in 1940.
  • For some reason, I'm just seeing an old 1940 advertisement
  • for fondue restaurants.
  • - I'm gonna say '50s for this.
  • - The 1950s.
  • - I'm thinking it's 1930, the chocolate and strawberries.
  • - I'm gonna say 1970s. - '70s.
  • Was everybody having fondue at Woodstock, who's to say?
  • - This is totally '70s,
  • like you know, peace man, let's dip some [bleep]
  • in chocolate and cheese.
  • - (FBE) Fondue was most popular during the 1960s.
  • (buzzer rings) - Oh God, almost!
  • - Damn it! (laughs) (buzzer rings)
  • - Really? - '60s, damn.
  • - (FBE) So fondue was popularized as a Swiss national dish
  • and it wasn't until 1964, New York's World's Fair
  • that Americans came in contact with fondue,
  • which quickly turned into a fad across the nation.
  • - Ooh, interesting!
  • - This is why international relations is so important!
  • You get fondue out of it.
  • - (FBE) Next up, we got some tiramisu for you.
  • - Ooh, alright. Yeah, look at this.
  • That's very pretty.
  • - Ugh, it tastes like coffee. (laughs)
  • - It tastes kinda like something you would order at a diner,
  • but I feel like the word tiramisu is much fancier than that.
  • - (FBE) So what decade do you think the tiramisu was most popular?
  • - I'm gonna go with 1970.
  • - 1970. - I'll say '90s.
  • - 1940. - Tiramisu, it's '70s.
  • - I'm wanna roll with 1930.
  • - Probably '40s?
  • - It's one of those very pretty desserts.
  • You know, all of that was so important way back when,
  • so I'm gonna go with the '40s.
  • - (FBE) The tiramisu originated in Naples, Italy in the 1600s,
  • but it wasn't properly introduced into American restaurants
  • until the 1980s. (buzzer rings)
  • - Really?
  • People in the '80s were eating tiramisu?
  • C'mon guys.
  • This does not feel like the spiked hair dessert.
  • - I started good guys, I'm doing so wrong now, wow.
  • - (FBE) Next up, we've got some healthy ice cream for you.
  • - (Jamayla) This is healthy, like organic ice cream?
  • - Healthier, I'm thinking it either has no dairy at all,
  • or it's more of a yogurt, or a soft served ice cream?
  • - Let's do it.
  • The flavor's freaking cool though.
  • - It kinda tastes artificial the same way that like
  • liquid medicine does, where it's like, it's got a hint of raspberry.
  • It's mostly just chemical though.
  • - It's like really making me sad for some reason.
  • This isn't what ice cream should taste like.
  • - If you're not gonna eat it because of your diet
  • then don't touch it.
  • Like, don't mess with the ice cream.
  • - (FBE) Okay so, what decade was the healthy ice cream most popular?
  • - Oh God, every decade has a health fad, I don't know.
  • - Healthy ice cream, that was to be 2010.
  • - I'm gonna go 2000s.
  • - The 2000. - 1990.
  • - 2010, that's when everybody started getting all crazy and stuff.
  • - This is, for sure, from 2010,
  • because nowadays since food is so processed and bad for you,
  • now is when we're really making all these pushes
  • to be a bit healthier.
  • - Real healthy stuff,
  • like people are starting moving on the fitness movement,
  • 2010s and on, easy.
  • I guess they would start becoming more available,
  • and people were starting becoming a little more conscious,
  • I would say it was probably in the 2000s.
  • - The 2010s. I don't eat ice cream for my health.
  • I saved those calories for a reason!
  • - (FBE) Healthy ice cream is most popular during the 2010s.
  • - Really? - Aw, boo!
  • - I'm kinda mad at myself now. (buzzer rings)
  • I literally stated it, and then just didn't pick it.
  • - (FBE) When you look back, it was more difficult
  • to find any healthier versions of frozen treats on the market,
  • but now it seems like there are more options to choose from
  • like low calorie or low sugar ice creams.
  • - Yeah, I think it's good for people who,
  • there are people who can't have dairy, and not because they don't want to,
  • but because it really affects them physically.
  • - I mean, they've stepped up their game.
  • The taste is a lot better, but it almost has me worried.
  • I'm like "what are you putting in here?"
  • - (FBE) Next up, we have bread pudding.
  • - Bread pudding.
  • Wow, that actually looks pretty cool.
  • - Hmm, hmm, hmm.
  • - That consistency is weird.
  • - I don't fully understand what part of it is pudding.
  • Did they just pour pudding on top of bread, and went "dessert!"?
  • - (FBE) So which decade was this dessert most popular?
  • - I'm gonna go with the '70s.
  • - I'm gonna go 1950s.
  • - 1940s. - 1930s.
  • - Bread, 1930.
  • - Let's go with '30. - I'll say 1940.
  • - Why would you use bread as a dessert?
  • That would only be used
  • because it was during a time of struggle.
  • That time period would've been during the great depression.
  • So I'm saying 1940.
  • - (FBE) So bread pudding was actually most popular
  • during the 1940s. (buzzer rings)
  • - 1940s, okay, okay, okay cool.
  • - Let's go!
  • - (FBE) So this was an easy and affordable way
  • to turn leftovers and stale bread into a sweet treat.
  • - I mean, I see why they did it, because yeah, your bread is stale,
  • so you also don't wanna waste it.
  • So instead, turn it into a dessert, and dessert makes people happy.
  • - 1940, I don't wanna play anymore. (buzzer rings)
  • Bring me more desserts though.
  • - (FBE) Next up, we've got some lava cake for you.
  • - Lava cake.
  • I've never had lava cake,
  • but I've seen them open it and it looks really cool.
  • The middle is so, look at that!
  • Oh my God.
  • - Oh yeah.
  • That's just brownie masquerading as a cake.
  • - (FBE) What year do you think this is most popular?
  • - I'm gonna go with the '90s.
  • - 2000.
  • - 2000. - I'm gonna say 2000s.
  • - I'm gonna go '90s lava cake. - I'm gonna go with 2000s.
  • - 1990s for chocolate lava cake.
  • - I feel like 1990 was the time for the best kids desserts,
  • and this is something kids would frickin' love in the '90s.
  • - (FBE) You are correct! - Woo!
  • - (FBE) Lava cake was most popular
  • during the 1990s. - Yes!
  • Die Hard and some lava cake.
  • - Hell yeah! (bell rings)
  • Kids love their sweets!
  • - (FBE) Fun fact, it was inspired when a chef rushed his dessert
  • and sent it out under cooked, but it was actually well received.
  • - There you go, nice.
  • Happy accident.
  • - I can't believe that people believe that miracles don't exist.
  • We have proof!
  • - (FBE) We have a simpler dessert next.
  • - Yay! - (FBE) A baked apple.
  • - Ooh, whoa!
  • Oh Jesus.
  • - Oh, hmm.
  • Oh, it wasn't what I was expecting.
  • Where it's like fruity, but also sweet,
  • so it's pretty good.
  • I almost wanna say this is one of my favorite ones so far.
  • - That's just apple pie minus the pie plus the apple.
  • - (FBE) Which decade was this dessert most popular?
  • - Let's go the '30s.
  • - This has to be 1930.
  • Some stuff was going on
  • with the whole depression and all that,
  • so they just like "let's just bake an apple,"
  • let's see if this works with the kids.
  • - Yeah, this has like raisins on it.
  • And raisins is an old people thing.
  • So it's probably from the 1930s.
  • - 1930s.
  • - I'm gonna go with 1970.
  • - 1930!
  • - I'm gonna say baked apples is 1930s.
  • - 1930, apple!
  • During the earlier decades, there was like wars
  • and depression and everything like that,
  • and people just kind of had to look at food items
  • and be like "that could be dessert."
  • - (FBE) Baked apple was most popular during the 1930s.
  • - Shut up, really?
  • Look at that!
  • - I knew it couldn't be 1970,
  • no, my momma wouldn't have made nothing like that in 1970.
  • - (FBE) During the depression years, food was pretty scarce.
  • Dessert was a luxury, so this was a cheap way
  • to satisfy the sweet tooth.
  • - I dig it, I mean, fruits as desserts
  • is a very common theme,
  • and if you can even pack on the dessert more,
  • and make it like its own little cake, why not?
  • - It's very like admirable that they would go out of their way
  • to try to find things that would make it
  • so that they can have dessert and be happy.
  • - (FBE) So next up, I have a baked Alaska for you.
  • - Baked Alaska?
  • Oh wow, look at this guy.
  • - (FBE) Baked Alaska typically comes en flambe, meaning it's lit on fire.
  • - Oh, see, I always just assume that means fried. (laughs)
  • - (FBE) So for safety reasons, we won't be doing that.
  • - (laughs) But it's more fun!
  • - (FBE) But post is gonna add in flames for us!
  • - Ooh, alright, thanks post!
  • - Oh, it's hot! (blows air)
  • Mmm!
  • This is ritzy, dude.
  • - Oh my God, that is so good!
  • It's like a marshmallow, whipped cream, like frosting.
  • And then there's ice cream inside.
  • Dude this is like heavenly!
  • - (FBE) Okay, so, what decade do you think something like this
  • would be most popular?
  • - Okay, I'm gonna do '50s with this one.
  • Just kinda has that retro-y feel to it.
  • - 1950. - Maybe this is the 1950 dish.
  • Let's go with that one.
  • - '50s.
  • I'm just thinking they're trying to like, show off their new
  • awesome ovens they have at home now.
  • - (FBE) Baked Alaska was very chic during the 1950s.
  • (buzzer rings) - Oh wow!
  • - Yay! I actually got one,
  • and it's a good one! (buzzer rings)
  • - (FBE) When there were more people with money to spend
  • following World War II. - Oh, that, sense.
  • - (FBE) It was a little bit more of a flamboyant dessert of course,
  • so it was a way for them to impress their party guests.
  • - Oh, that is a good way though. (bell rings)
  • - It's like look what I can do, and we're gonna set it on fire!
  • (laughs)
  • - (FBE) Next one is a cake pop!
  • - Ooh, okay, this screams 2000 immediately,
  • 'cause I made these a bunch with my cousins and stuff
  • when we were younger.
  • - I don't know how else you're supposed to eat those.
  • Like, it's a bite.
  • - Who would buy a piece of cake where you can only get
  • two bites out of it? No one!
  • But make it cute, and put some [bleep] sprinkles on it!
  • Genius!
  • - (FBE) Okay, so what decade do you think the cake pops
  • were more popular? - Mmm.
  • These came out in 2000.
  • My kids was on these mugs.
  • - This has to be 2000s. - Gotta be 2000s.
  • - 2000. - 2000 is the cake pop.
  • - This is for sure from the 2000s.
  • - This is 2000s, easy.
  • - I have the '70s and the 2000s.
  • So, I would say the 2000s.
  • - (FBE) Cake pops were most popular during the 2000s!
  • - I'm doing so much better
  • when all of the other choices are eliminated!
  • - Yes! (bell rings)
  • - (FBE) So cake pops were the most popular during the 2000s,
  • when leftover cake crumbs were turned into little cupcakes on sticks.
  • - Is this because of the market crash in the 2000s?
  • They were like "what can we make into a dessert, crumbs!"
  • - Nowadays we get so concerned over leftovers,
  • that it's nice to see if we could turn them into something else
  • just to sort of save food, so these work out great
  • 'cause they taste amazing!
  • - (FBE) Finally we got one last dessert for you.
  • Next up we got carrot cake!
  • - Oh. (laughs)
  • My grandma can make some mean carrot cake.
  • - Mmm, mm-hmm, mm-hmm.
  • - It's pumpkin-y and carrot-y,
  • and carrots are probably the best of the vegetables,
  • so it's okay to put them in cake.
  • - It kinda tastes like thanksgiving.
  • I get why it's associated with that.
  • - (FBE) So what decade?
  • - There's only one spot left. I wonder where it goes!
  • - (FBE) Carrot cake was most popular during the 1970s
  • due to the emergence of diet fads,
  • where they were perceived as a healthier option for dessert.
  • - (laughs) This is a healthier option? Just 'cause it had carrots in it.
  • - This doesn't taste any healthier.
  • Like sure, I guess you're getting a few extra vitamins,
  • 'cause there's a carrot in there,
  • but it still has the same amount of sugar
  • and icing, like any other cake.
  • - There's veggies, it's gotta be good for you.
  • I like that diet.
  • - It was good to know that the people that had been
  • getting creative during the most difficult times in their lives,
  • they were also satisfying something else by creating,
  • you know, pretty dishes and tasteful dishes in that day.
  • - The coolest aspect of history is being able to get hands on with it,
  • 'cause you get such a deeper understanding of the context of it,
  • like you see really how they lived their lives.
