    While we have a list of ingredients, nobody really knows how Combos are made. There is little to no information about Combos on the internet, which begs the question: what are they hiding? But not to worry, pastry chef Claire Saffitz is on the case! Join her as she attempts to unpack this mystery and make gourmet Combos!

      I would love to see Claire make a gourmet krabby patty candy😂

    3. James Pedid

      I kind of feel like they need to add a little electronic version of claire at the bottom of the screen with pastry-themed quips. It can be called the eclaire

    4. gula-gula getah sabah

      Chris bites in for the *C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER*

    5. Zainab Al-Bahadli

      Pizza combos are one of my favorite snacks!!! Viva la combo!!! They're so underrated !

    6. Christina Jones

      Why does she dress like my grandma tho 🤨

    7. below.average

      why is Claire like the cutest human being on this planet

    8. Asdfg Hjkl

      Who’s watching this while eating combos? 🙋🏻‍♀️

    9. Georgina Kelly

      this has to be one of her best accomplishments

    10. Kim B, that's me

      What is that puzzle/toy they were playing with?

    11. Kim B, that's me

      Why did I think Combos were bigger made out of a thicker cake tube that is filled with icing/frosting - (diameter is like 2/3 cake and 1/3 icing? and since they aren't, what the heck am I thinking of? Does it exist? **confused**

    12. Alex Sparks-Bakota

      you should a day where claire tries to remake all of her foods in the gourmet series

    13. Alex Sparks-Bakota

      “it’s just that next level where i would be like, ‘f*ck it, it’s gonna have a flat bottom, but we all can imagine what it would look like without the flat bottom...’”

    14. pennypals15

      all these episodes teach me is just how much crap is added to American food

    15. Crazy2148 _

      I walked into my kitchen while watching this to find combos on my counter.... your welcome

    16. fiona cabral

      I love it when she gets organized

      I have never heard of Combos

    24. HyperLoop 555

      The sound is low on this video,and several others produced around the same time.

    25. Erin Richardson

      I literally got a soap ad done by ba in the middle of this video

    26. Aureiria

      I have never had or even heard of Combos before and now I would actually die to try them

    27. 김젠

      I have never heard of combos.

    28. Josefina Ewins

      what’s the wooden thing that they were playing with? I want one

    29. Myra Groenewegen

      I'm confused. Why was there some question about if it was okay to eat the baking-soda-not-washed-off-first cracker-tubes they sound like they think eating them might cause mild illness or something. Is there some question as to whether they're food-safe? Why would there be? Maybe I'm misinterpreting.

    30. Riley S

      “I’ll kind of smoothly sail the ship into the port in day 3” says Claire when there’s still 16 minutes left of the video

    31. Freja Warburton

      please please plllllease make Cadbury mini eggs the ones with the pastel colours

    32. Sam Ali

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="882">14:42</a> the edit says “use honey instead of water” but I think they meant use honey instead of sugar

      "I don't know why you do this to yourself Claire, they sell them in STORES!" - John Oliver.

    34. Lav Mohabir

      Claire: Remind me to not touch the baking soda after baking. Also claire: immediately touches the baked baking soda. good thing she asked for a reminder. :D

    35. Catherine Alcorn

    39. kill me

      ...claire graduated in harvard university with a degree in history and now shes stressing over manufactured snacks

    40. shantanu panda

      Sodium bicarbonate decomposes to sodium carbonate, which is more alkaline. If the coating wasn't rinsed I think the NaCO3 might've reacted with the organic compounds in the dough to make sodium carbide derivatives with esters and carboxylic acids I guess.

    41. Stay Trill

      Chris even browses his phone like an ahole.

    42. cherry blossom

      I'm kinda wondering how frustrated Gordon Ramsay would be trying to do something like this.

    43. xxSkyLoverxxHolla

      I kind of wish she remade it with the wash to see which tasted better? But yay for Claire nailing it.

      Ohh gheez I Love pizza flavored Combo’s. Nothing good for the environment nor biodiversity about All these palm oil ingredients God have mercy on the Biodiversity within Indonesia and Malaysia you should have either used a meat grinder to form the combo cylinders or maybe a pasta extruder baking soda only lowers your stomach acid ph and there is a consumption limit for 24 hours that’s acceptable as safe limits

    47. John Daryl Ocampo
