    "Store-bought ingredients"

    You should fix that to "homemade fresh ingredient apple pie vs storebought apple pie"

    bitch just cause you dont know what an ingredient is just means you're ignorant. Do your research instead of being scared of the unknown. you realize the ingredients are added for food storage and to keep them from spoiling and fresh etc. there's a science behind it

    Bramley apples are for pies. Do you get those in the States?

  • Reply SydB January 13, 2019 at 3:59 pm

    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

  • Reply Sunny Island January 13, 2019 at 5:04 pm

    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.

  • Reply EmrysAlice January 14, 2019 at 6:48 am

    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.

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

  • Reply Mengmeng Di January 14, 2019 at 7:45 pm

    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 YouTube. 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.

  • Reply Sarah W January 15, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    I am always bothered that Tasty uses cling wrap instead of just putting a towel on it. Considering how the other videos are promoting less waste, I hope Tasty can eliminate at least that.

    Its really easy for me living in northern California to go to the farmers market. Everything is grown were I live. It's much harder if you live in Wyoming.

  • Reply Benjamin Liang January 17, 2019 at 8:36 pm

    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.

    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.

  • Reply Marlee Johnson January 21, 2019 at 1:52 pm

    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, ginger….you 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 YouTube notifications are going nuts. Hey babe…..might not leave your phone out in the open…you 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 .

  • Reply Valiant Lion January 23, 2019 at 3:32 am

    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.

    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.

  • Reply Lorenzo Guerrero February 2, 2019 at 6:17 am

    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?

    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.

  • Reply KaoBoy Ab February 24, 2019 at 10:27 am

    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

    What about sustainability. The amount of energy and resources used to produce the ingredients?
    Edit: continuing…. and pasture raise cows. Yes that’s nice but it’s likely you need to clear out land just to raise them. everyone’s so dismissive over sustainability, price and accessibility. And yet how does that benefit the world.? Cows produce methane. The amount of land used to create each ingredient is apparently meaningless. Not only that but what if you live in an area where you must get store bought and not locally sourced due to living conditions? Am I negative? I dunno the whole thing seems biased towards locally sourced. (The term local is so vague. Like natural)

    Of course the homemade pie would win, since it's freshly baked. In order to have a fair comparison, a homemade pie with local and non-local ingredients should have been compared.
