We recently finished filming season 17 of American's Test Kitchen TV, which will premiere across the country early next year. During filming, the crew took part in one of our favorite, long-held traditions: the annual Rice Krispies throwdown. In honor of that, we're recounting contests from years past, including this competition from 2015, when we decided to try out a new medium: popcorn. Despite the unfamiliar contest ingredient, the test cooks' competitive edge—and trash-talking—was as sharp as ever.
