    This reminds me of my high school social experiment about fruit loops where I had someone try red and blue fruit loops and tell me if they tasted a difference. I figured they wouldn’t taste a difference (because they’re the same flavor) so I put kool aid powder on the blue one, and yup they said they tasted different and the WHOLE class was amazed

    It's heartening to see how people are becoming more conscious about locally sourced ,organic, fresh,seasonal, naturally grown food items all around the world. Its a win win for the consumers, farmers and environment as well

    I like a lot of Tasty's videos. But by far this one was my least favorite. It was bias. I am really disappointed. I wish it showed them make both, making that side by side comparison so it can prove their point. But this was clear which one they did their precautions and love with. Well, time to go watch some of their other videos.

    Just to be clear, I want to like this video but, from where I live, making pies that are "locally sourced" is impossible. The climate in our country cannot sustain the growth of apple trees. We heavily rely on importing foreign goods when the local market demands it but can't supply it. What if I want apple pie but can't eat it because I made a rule to myself that what I consume has to be locally grown?

    Locally grown is ethically better to buy but this video seemed painfully scripted. Might make someone who might have actually wanted to try it think that it's all BS. Could hurt the locally grown cause. Just be honest. Pie is gonna be good. Its pie!

    This is the worst way to advertise environmentalism. You can advertise it, but there’s a line between that and shoving it down people’s throats. Her tone made it seem like she was dimming it down.
    The really fake “reactions” don’t help. They’re both still apple pie. One may not be as good as the other, but if you like apple pie you wouldn’t hate the other one.
    Oh, and the cookware change, different crust formation, and obvious filling difference.
    Advocation done wrong just does the opposite.

    This was too scripted, even the "locally sourced" pie looked better than the other pie. This was way too biased, if this is a series its a definite cancel, its just going to be the same results over and over again.

    Fresh?? Hardly! To make my apple pie...
    First I wake up the cow (she loves to sleep in). We milk her and immediately make fresh butter.
    To make the crust I go through our wheat fields and individually pick out the grains and then mill them myself. I ask our chickens for a couple eggs....(make sure the egg hasn’t been fertilized...cuz that’s a whole new type of pie).....I then harvest our sugar cane real quick for some super fresh...uh...sugar. I do run into trouble with ingredients like baking powder but did end up finding some sort of white powder in our sons room and it totally did the trick ...people said the pie made them happy and carefree. Gotta love when you take a bite of something and it takes you away..
    Oh and we get a lot of sugar questions and we always answer the same....As far as white and brown sugar...we think all sugar colors are beautiful.
    The rest of the ingredients are self explanatory: lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, know...all those things grow in our back yard in North Texas!
    Who needs market fresh or store bought ingredients when you can harvest your own cinnamon right ?
    1. For all the lovelies out there who have a difficult time understanding sarcasm and all it’s glory.....the above steps are 100% true
    2. I actually wrote this to see how long it takes my wife to wonder why her TheXvid notifications are going nuts. Hey babe.....might not leave your phone out in the never know who might stumble across it and notice what video you were watching. Never know who could pick it up and pretend to be you. Just sayin. (Oh And please let me know if this long message annoys people and you get a bunch of comments saying you have too much time in your hands)
    You are welcome! I’m nice like that.
    You know you love me....I’m awesome .

    The apples in the LS pie weren’t completely cooked. They said the apples were crunchy. If they cooked the pie longer, it wouldn’t have been nearly as tall as it was.

    This seems rigged, almost like you want the farmers market to win, another thing is that store bought ingredients can also be fresh. Depending on your store.
    Whole Foods and whole earth center are better than Walmart and target just saying.

    Pfff yeah but even if you go to the farmers market you can get scammed and pay extra for ingredients that aren’t local at all ! It is the case where I live, unfortunately. The farmers will try and sell you the idea that everything is local and that they are traditional farmers, but a lot of them don’t grow anything at all. Check out “marketplace farmers market” on TheXvid. So yeah, it is a good idea to buy local but beware of fake farmers because you will be paying extra for something you can get at a Walmart.

    How about making guacamole with store bought and the locally sourced ingredients. By the way nice vid.👌👏❤😂

  • EmrysAlice
    EmrysAlice 3 months ago

    I live in a farming town and all these ingredients would be readily available for me but I’ve never tried to buy locally and honestly it’s started to bug me. I understand that for others it’s a little harder to get the fresh eggs and fresh fruit but I honestly have no excuse. Seeing everyone complain about well we aren’t rich. You definitely don’t have to be rich or privileged to shop locally. The eggs sold in my town for a dozen is 3 dollars. If I went to the store it would be 5-6 dollars. People need to realize that buying locally and trying to be better for the environment doesn’t mean you’ll be paying more. You just have to find the right place.

    The store boxed one is no doubt extremely overly sweet. The apples in it are definitely soft like, sludge. The apple "sludge" swimming in high fructose corn syrup. The crust more like shelf rack AM PM gas station pre-packaged mass manufactured donut pastry in a bag.

  • SydB

    I love this idea and goal for sustainability but I have lived in a food dessert most of my life and the only way we can have fruits or vegetables is with transportation being cheap. Our economy cannot afford to pay so much for "organic" or anything life that. It is a literal desert and farming is hard. Getting water to us is very tough. This issue seems bigger than simply wanting to do good

  • Molly Owen

    Man this video. It seems so biased? One pie baked in a glass dish, the other in metal so they aren’t baked exactly the same. The store-bought pie obviously hasn’t had as much attention and care when it was prepared. The main message of the video is ‘support local businesses’ but you can easily send that message across with making the video biased.
    Make an amazing local ingredient pie and tell people at the end it’s all local ingredients to see how they react! Or atleast blindfold them! If I saw the two pies side by side I’d instantly think the store bought was worse by looks alone and that was not the point of the video.

  • Utkarsh Sharma

    It really irritated me how she doesn't eat something if she doesn't know what the ingredients are. Just because you don't know what it is. it doesn't mean it's necessarily bad for you. I have no problem with people who prefer responsibly sourced, healthily food but at a certain level it becomes ignorance.
    (I know that the store bought apple pie probably wasn't good for you anyway. I'm just sayin')

  • HayleyKilligan

    People will act like it's so easy to buy locally farmed ingredients while totally ignoring the fact that most people can barely afford store bought groceries as it is. My grocery bill every month would probably triple if I only bought local ingredients and food where I live. I could not afford to eat.

    I feel like they just wanted the local pie to taste better because it’s “local” so it’s supposed to be healthier. I feel like if I was one of the taste tester I probably wouldn’t find a difference.

    I am a big fan of locally sourced ingredients, but the truth is, not many people can afford or are willing to spend 40 bucks to make a pie. 6 bucks for store bought is attainable for most. The results were rigged in favor of the locally sourced ingredients pie due to the obvious difference in appearance. None of the hand picked "judges" were going to pick the crap pie.
