Rhett & Link’s Ultimate Lunchables Tournament

In Rhett & Link’s 2023 Last Lunchable Standing Showdown, they put 11 varieties of Lunchables in head-to-head taste test to determine which are the absolute best of the bunch. The Lunchables from six different categories Uploaded Subs, Uploaded Chicken Dunks, Nachos, Uploaded Mini Hot Dogs, Pizza, and Cracker Stackers—but only the very best Lunchables took their rightful place in the Golden Lunchbox. Here’s how the Lunchables Taste Test Tournament shook out.

Round 1: Lunchables Uploaded Subs vs. Lunchables Uploaded Chicken Dunks

The subs vs. dunks round included two kinds of subs: Turkey and Cheddar and Ham and American, both going up against the Chicken Dunks. Right out the gate, Rhett & Link liked the interactive nature of the subs. “You’re like a sandwich artist,” Rhett said while playing with the bun. While the Chicken Dunks required no assembly, Link seemed a little confused about their texture. “It’s like…mushy,” he noted. He also didn’t like being forced into having ketchup be his only condiment. For this reason, and the fact that there is more potential for trading with the sub and its many sides, the sub moves on.

Winner: Lunchables Uploaded Subs

Round 2: Lunchables Nachos vs. Lunchables Uploaded Mini Hot Dogs

The Mini Hot Dogs are not native to California, so the Mythical team had them specially imported from out of state by Mikayla’s parents. Rhett was very enthralled by the size difference in the original nachos versus the Uploaded version, but this alone did not make it a proper contender against the Mini Hot Dogs. Rhett & Link enjoyed the cute novelty of the mini dogs and, once again, Link felt they were appropriate to trade. Rhett sent the nachos off the cliff behind them.

Winner: Lunchables Uploaded Mini Hot Dogs

Round 3: Lunchables Uploaded Subs vs. Lunchables Pizzas

Rhett & Link prepared both variations of the pizza Lunchables, and Link did not like the “cardboard” dough of the original. However, the two loved how fun it was to assemble the pizzas, so they progressed to the next round. The sour Fruit Roll-Up that came with the Uploaded Subs wasn’t enough to keep it in the running.

Winner: Lunchables Pizza

Round 4: Lunchables Mini Hot Dogs vs Lunchables Cracker Stacker

“When I think of Lunchables…this is what I picture,” said Rhett after taking a bite of the Lunchables Cracker Stacker. The pair solidified their winner with the help of a tie breaker: Matt Carney’s eight-year-old niece, Emmy! From her perspective, the Cracker Stackers were far superior to a cold, “uncooked” hot dog, which she spat out immediately! A big win for Cracker Stackers. 

Winner: Lunchables Cracker Stackers

Final Round: Lunchables Pizza vs. Lunchables Cracker Stackers

Rhett pointed out that, in a real-life lunchtime scenario, the Lunchables Pizza would go up against real cafeteria pizza and would not hold up for long. Of the Cracker Stackers, Link said, “This is so much better than a sandwich….It’s a savory s’more, it’s the future of food.” And you really can’t beat the future, folks. The ultimate winner is the Lunchables Cracker Stackers.
