– Eat that. – But I… Mmmm…. (groaning)
(giggling) – What is it taste, it’s not that bad! (upbeat instrumental music) – [Interviewer] What do
you guys know about Iran? – Um, very old country.
– Uh… – It used to have a
different name, called… – What was it’s name? – Persia. – [Interviewer] What have
you heard that’s happening, like in the news? – Oh, the news recently,
that gets interesting. So the United States has
been sort of escalating tensions with Iran. – Iran and the President got in a fight. – And now Iran’s kind of mad. And we’re a little worried
about a world war three, but like, not really that worried. – [Interviewer] Ellie, have
you heard anything about this? – Nope. – [Interviewer] So it’s kind of hard to like summarize and keep up. But today we’re focusing on food. Are you guys ready to start? – Yes.
– Yes. – All right. Close your eyes. – Vanessa, do you know what
the capital of Iran is? – No. – Tehran. Do you know what the second
biggest city of Iran is? – Nope. Just shut your eyes, Talbott. (upbeat instrumental music) – A drink? – Oh, gosh. Whoa! Okay, there’s
a bunch of seeds in here. – Looks like lemonade. – Waft it. – Oh my gosh. This is really sweet. – [Interviewer] This is called Sharbat, and it has a lot of calcium
and protein and fiber. – Ooh. I gotta tell my
fitness teacher about this. – [Interviewer] It’s
supposed to be really good for constipation… – Good to know. Good to know. – Wow, Talbott, you really liked that. – I did. – Wanna try mine? – No. I’m not your garbage disposal.
– I know. I wanna save room. Oh, Talbott. I’m not your garbage disposal, Vanessa. – And sometimes I am
your garbage disposal. – [Interviewer] You guys
ready for the next one? – Yeah.
– Yup. (upbeat instrumental music) – Oh, thank you, Megan! Oh, hee hee! – It looks like a good rice and beef dish. Maybe lamb, actually. Instead of analyzing,
I’m just gonna eat it. – [Interviewer] This is
called Khoresh eh’ Rivas, and it is a Persian rhubarb stew. – Mmmmm… – Eat that. – But I… Mmmm…. (groaning)
(giggling) – What is it taste, it’s not that bad! – [Interviewer] Have you
ever had rhubarb before? – In a pie, yeah. – I’m not a fan of the rhubarb, honestly.
– Same. Like the first taste is bad. And then like the after
taste kind of tastes like the pickles on hamburgers. – Have you heard of Columbia? – [Interviewer] Uh huh. – We make arepas, and this kind of tastes like the grainy corn
coming from the arepas. So I’m like, I tried it just by itself… Reminds me of home. – [Interviewer] Talbott,
are you done already? – Yeah. – Yeah, Talbott eats fast. – [Interviewer] It’s hard
for us fast eaters, you know? – Finally, someone who understands. (upbeat instrumental music) – Oh! Okay. This is pita bread. – Oh, this looks so good! – It’s the egg pancakes or the sour… I’ve seen these before. – Cauliflower, onion, tomato. And I’m gonna say asparagus. It’s probably a yogurt sauce. – [Interviewer] This isn’t
“Identify the Food”, Sandor. This is called “Kids Try”.
– I know. – The dip is really good. I know you don’t like sour cream, but– – What’s it taste like? – Sour cream. – I’m good then. – These taste like French
fries, but not French fries. – Kind of like not crispy hash browns. – Yeah! – And it’s like pickled asparagus, ’cause it’s got like
that pickle taste to it. – [Interviewer] Do you like pickles? – I love pickles. – The potato is really good. If you don’t want your
third one, I will eat it. – Mmm mmm… I’ll eat it. (upbeat instrumental music) (gasping)
– Ooh. – There’s sugar on it. – Okay. I can definitely
tell this is dessert. – [Interviewer] So this is
an Iranian candy called Toot. (giggles)
– Toot! Toot! (giggles) – You’re so immature, Ellie. – It’s a like edible cookie dough. – Yeah, this tastes really, really close to an Indian cookie I’ve had before. My grandparents make. – Tastes a lot like rice pudding I had at a Greek restaurant in New Jersey.
(laughing) – [Interviewer] Extremely specific, okay. – Yeah, very specific (laughs). – It was really good. I respect them.
– Yeah. – I think we learned one part of Iran, but you have to actually go there to see their city, their
culture, their religion, and not just the food. – [Interviewer] Well,
unfortunately we can’t travel to Iran right now. But we’re still able to have the food, and I think that’s pretty cool. – Mmm hmm! And it’s really good. Made my tummy full. Ooh! Ooh! – [Unison] Thanks for watching! – Bye!
