Kids Try Chinese New Year Food | Kids Try | HiHo Kids

(girl screaming) – It’s a fish with an eye and a mouth! (kids screaming) (quirky music) – [Kids] Hello! – [Host] What’s going on, you guys? – Um, wait, what’d you ask? – [Host] Do you know why I
brought you all here today? – Chinese New Year! – [Host] Ding, ding,
ding, ding, ding, ding. – Knew it! I’m a rabbit. – [Host] What does that mean? – Oh, uh, I think it has something to do with, like, the month that, like, each month that you were born. – [Host] Okay, so Ethan’s talking about something called the Chinese Zodiac. – I have no idea what I am. – I’m the water dragon. – [Host] So, do you guys know
what Chinese New Year is? – It’s like a new year, but for Chinese? – Well, I guess, like,
there’s no fireworks, but you do have bigger dinners. Obviously there’s, like,
the best Chinese food, and you just get together with
friends and family, so, yeah. – [Host] Do you celebrate
Chinese New Year, Ethan? – Yeah, I do. – [Host] It’s all about removing the old and welcoming the new. – That’s sad. – [Host] Why is that sad? – Because, like, everything,
all it goes bye-bye and into the dust, and
you’re like, “See ya!” – Can we get to the food already? – Yeah!
– Ooh, I’d love to. – [Host] Does anybody know how to say close your eyes in Mandarin? – (speaking Chinese) – (attempting to copy what
Ethan said in Chinese) (kids laugh) – [Host] That sounded close to me! Close your eyes! – Smells good!
– It smells so good. – Mmm.
– I wanna open my eyes. (kids cry out) – I love, I love that. – [Host] The first dish
I’m going to introduce are the dumplings. – [Clara] Yum! – [Host] Grab a dumpling,
put it on your plate. – Yaa. – A dumpling. – Mmm, I like this stuff. – They should, like, make
a chocolate outside layer and then put chocolate, like,
pudding in it and stuff. – [Host] Okay, I gotta steal one dumpling. Sorry, you guys. – No! – No, you can’t! – Our territory!
– No, you can’t! – [Host] We’re gonna move
on to this next dish, which I want you guys to try, which are the Longevity Noodles. Also known as Chang Shou Mian. Ethan, am I pronouncing that right? Or not at all? – Mmm, well, for the accent, not at all. Um, no offense, but, um, I’ve never heard of them, so. – I swallowed it whole. – [Host] GG, what are you doing? – Ahhh. (Clara laughs) – [Host] You know how
we were talking about the Chinese Zodiac earlier? – Yeah.
– Yeah. – [Host] So, this year is the
gonna be the Year of the Rat. – I saw a red raccoon once. Not the same. – [Host] In honor of the Year of the Rat, we are going to release
10 rats into the studio. – What?! (kids screaming) No, no, no, no! – Do it, do it, do it! – [Host] Okay, okay,
I’m not gonna do that. Chill, chill. I wouldn’t do that (laughs). – I wanna do it. – [Host] Let’s move on to the next dish, which is the steamed fish. (kids screaming) (GG screaming) – Ow! – [Host] Okay. – But it’s a fish with an eye and a mouth! We’re not gonna eat– – [Host] Oh, you’re
gonna eat it, all right. – No, no, we are not. – So, at the same time. – Okay. – Everyone! – Okay, I’m in. (kids screaming) – [Host] One, two, three.
– Three. (kids screaming) – It’s disgusting. – It’s bitter. – But, hey, we shouldn’t say, like, really, really disgusting, because people eat this. – I know. I said no offense, it’s kinda disgusting. – [Host] All right, we’re gonna move on to the next dish, which is in those little cups. It’s called Nian Gao. – [Ethan] Oh, I know what that is. – [Host] Ethan, am I saying that right? – Yeah. Except for the accent. Nian Gao. – Nao Gao. – How do you dig into this? – It’s, like, a little sweet, not sour. – Like really sticky Jell-O.
– Yeah, yeah. – Like the stickiest Jell-O you ever had. – How do I get this off? Get off. Get off! – [Host] We’re gonna move on to the last thing on the table. – Now let’s all take an
orange from the bottom. (kids laugh) – Timber! – [Host] I have one last
thing to give you guys. – I’m gonna guess, um, ice cream? – [Host] And open your eyes. – (gasps) Oh, I know what these are. In Chinese, we call them Hong Bao. – [Host] This is Hong
Bao, like Ethan said. Or known as Red Pockets, sometimes. And they’re full of lucky
money to give to kids. – It’s a one-dollar bill. – [Host] Okay, is that
not enough for you, Clara? (GG laughs) – It’s one dollar! – You put it together, it’s
only, like, four dollars. – Take my little money (laughs). – [Host] What was your favorite part of Chinese New Year, you guys? – Eating food! – [Host] But which food? – [GG] Definitely not that. – Dumplings!
– Dumplings! – [Host] Do you wanna teach everybody how to say good-bye in Mandarin? – Um, (speaks Chinese). – (speaks Chinese) – (speaks Chinese)
– (speaks Chinese) – (mumbles with mouth full) (Ethan laughs) – [Kids] (speaking Chinese). – That’s five in Chinese. (host laughs) If you didn’t know.

    Mackenzie: Hey, we shouldn’t say it’s really disgusting because some people it this.
    Clara: Yea I said “It’s disgusting, no offense”

    That really made me cringe a tad bit there

    Sorry, my preschool teacher training came out watching this video.


    .. why people whyz :c

  4. Wow I love Chinese New Year 🧧 I have a Chinese Zodiac too I get money this year I only got like 20 dollars 💵

  5. I just showed this to my grandma and all of her childhood memories flooded back to her she was in tears cuz she's Chinese but I'm half american but from now onwards I'll celebrate Chinese new year with my grandma

  6. Ummmm….we probably not eat “ this” in Chinese new yr ….we eat carrot cake ,rice cake ,seafoods (abalone)or fa choi <<<really traditional dishes !!please research properly

  7. Host: It’s called Niang Gao, Ethan am I saying that right?
    Ethan: Yeah, except for the accent. Nang Gao *pronouncing it wrongly*😂😂

  8. I hate these three girls because they kinda disrespect the culture like shut up it's fish your overreacting

    Fact: you can't really give a person that's not Asian a red, traditional, envelope because they don't get the meaning so there's no point in the dummy

  9. i know that girl with a high ponytail (i forgot her name, gg i think, sorry if i’m wrong) from like 3 years ago. i can’t believe she is still here and i am amazed about how these kids grow

  10. You're welcome to come to my house for dinner or something else and we could get you some drinks or coffee or lunch on Sunday or Friday evening if you want to date and we can go over the weekend with your friends and family to help

  11. The dumpling you actually normally put dimes in and it’s a race to see who you can eat the most, and the noodles are normally longer and more chewer, we normally don’t eat fish either. Also you forgot the moon cakes. No hate!


  13. These kids are so cute and sweet! I appreciate the sensitivity about the "disgusting" fish! Kids sometimes are better people than adults, I swear.

  14. In my family, (since im a lolita in waiting) everyone is always exited and asking me what i will be wearing, of course i stayed quite as a surprise 😉
    But yeah, my favorite part about chinese new year, is about dressing up and getting ready, and meeting my family💙

  15. The fish is bitter probably cos they're eating the skin too. also, supposed to pour soy sauce on it after brushing the skin off

  16. Man why do i feel like a proud big sister, looking at how much these kids have grown over the years 😂😂 i also want those dumplings soooooo bad. Alright i’m going outta here, zàijiàn!!

  17. When the kids screamed looking at the whole fish, I am wondering what do they draw as fish during kindergarten. Fish and chips?
