    To celebrate their return and their new image, we put them to the test to see if they could tell the difference between food and drinks that look the same!

    Round 1: Coke vs. Pepsi

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    Shaun: (lifting the blue cup) That's uhh, Coca-Cola, 2008 vintage. You can smell it!

    Andy: Oh yeah! You're right!

    Bradie: Blue is definitely Coke.

    Shaun: [Red's] definitely Pepsi.

    Answer: Coke was in the blue cup, Pepsi was in the red cup.

    Short Stack were right!

    Round 2: Gatorade vs. Powerade

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    Shaun: They're both pretty fuckin' nice! I reckon blue is Powerade.

    Andy: Red is Gatorade, and... yeah. Blue is Powerade.

    Shaun: Oh wait, wait wait wait.

    Bradie: is Powerade.

    Shaun: Yeah. Red is Gatorade.

    Answer: Gatorade was in the red cup, Powerade was in the blue cup.

    Short Stack were right again!

    Andy: We're connoisseurs!

    Round 3: Vegemite vs. Promite

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    Shaun: We've been trying to do this My Fitness Pal thing... it's not going well now! *laughs* ...should I let you in on a very terrible secret? I don't actually eat Vegemite, I don't like it. It's crap, isn't it?! It tastes like shit! I can't believe it's made from beer. Like I can't believe beer gave us something this shit. *licks the sandwich from the green plate* This one's Vegemite.

    Bradie: Pink's Vegemite...

    Shaun: *licks the sandwich on the pink plate* Oh yeah, pink's Vegemite.

    Andy: *casually taking bites out of both sandwiches* I think it's the other way round?

    Shaun: You're going the other way?

    Andy: Yep.

    Shaun: Pink's 100% Vegemite, isn't it?

    Answer: Vegemite was on the pink plate, Promite was on the green plate.

    Most of Short Stack were right! (Sorry, Andy!)

    Round 4: Jatz vs. Ritz

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    Bradie and Andy, simultaneously: *points to pink* Jatz, *points to green* Ritz.

    Shaun: I prefer Ritz!

    Answer: Jatz were on the pink plate, Ritz were on the green plate.

    Short Stack nailed it!

    Round 5: Pascall Jubes vs. generic

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    Shaun (to Bradie): You seem like the kind of guy who would love Jubes.

    Bradie: [Green's] the proper one.

    Shaun: But, ohh... [pink's] pretty good!

    Bradie: Yeah, they're both good, aren't they?

    Shaun: I reckon... [pink] might be the expensive ones.

    Bradie: Nah.

    Shaun: The only reason I think [green] might be the expensive ones is because the shape is more consistent, while these guys *points to pink* seem like they don't give a fuck. [Pink] tastes better, but I think [green] is probably more expensive.

    Answer: The Pascall Jubes were on the green plate, generic were on the pink plate.

    Short Stack win again!

    Shaun: [Pink] does taste better, though!

    Round 6: Snickers vs generic

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    Shaun: *takes a bite out of the green* ...that tastes like shit.

    Andy: Yeah, the pink's legit.

    Bradie: Green doesn't taste too bad.

    Shaun: I dunno...

    Andy: I think pink is legit.

    Bradie: I agree.

    Shaun: I think green.

    Answer: The Snickers were on the pink plate, while generic was on the green.

    Bradie and Andy were right!

    Round 7 : Mint Slice vs. generic

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    Shaun: Green's legit. Is it green?! Look at pink, it's got like, shitty chocolate, is it?! It's got that white crap on it!

    Andy: Yeah, you're right.

    Answer: The Mint Slices were on the green plate, generic were on the pink.

    Short Stack knew before even tasting them!

    Shaun: All these years of having a shitty diet are paying off!

    Round 8: Scotch Fingers vs. generic

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    Shaun: [Pink] are the good ones. You can just tell 'coz of the way they broke. [Pink] broke pretty well, [green] is a bunch of broken crap.

    Andy: [Pink] doesn't taste that great, so maybe not?

    Bradie: Maybe [green's] the good ones?

    Andy: Yeah.

    Shaun: I disagree, I think pink's Scotch Fingers.

    Answer: The Scotch Fingers were on the pink plate, generic was on the green.

    Shaun was right!

    Round 9: Tim Tams vs. generic

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    Bradie: It's definitely green.

    Shaun: They're different flavours! Are they different flavours of the same brand? I think green's legit, but pink is pretty damn good!

    Andy: It's totally green.

    Answer: The Tim Tams were on the green plate, generic was on the pink.

    Short Stack, right again!
