Renowned chef and humanitarian Chef José Andrés appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he showcased his culinary expertise and ability to discern flavors. In a segment that put his taste buds to the test, Andrés gamely sampled an array of beverages, providing witty commentary and insightful observations along the way.

One of the highlights of the segment was Andrés‘ encounter with a Coca-Cola variant labeled as “spiced.” After taking a sip, I only expressed confusion at the lack of discernible spices in the beverage. Andrés remarked on the discrepancy between the drink’s name and its flavor profile, humorously quipping about the absence of any detectable spices and instead describing it as simply “sweet.”

One particularly memorable moment occurred when Andrés sampled heavy whipped cream. Although he thought it tasted good after the previous drinks, he said it tasted like “soap.”
