Two Dutch pranksters from the professional YouTube group Lifehunters organized a taste test at one of Europe’s most popular cuisine exhibitions, asking so-called food experts to taste and comment on what they said were “organic snacks,” but were actually McNuggets and cheeseburgers.

The foodies, who were attending a health food convention in Houten, the Netherlands, were unable to tell the difference, even heaping praise on what they believed was healthy organic food.

“It’s good, the structure is good,” said one expert. “Not too sticky, and it has a good taste.”

“Rolls around the tongue nicely,” said one foodie after tasting a Filet-o-Fish. “If it were wine, I’d say it was fine.”

“I like it, it’s pure,” said another taste tester. “It’s just a pure, organic product and that makes it very tasty.”

“In Holland, organic food is getting more and more popular, most people are talking about it, they want to know things about it,” said one of the pranksters. “I think it’s funny because it’s just all in your mind … If you tell people that something is organic, they’ll automatically believe it’s organic.”
