Kiki13 Matsumoto tasting

Matsumoto tasting by smearing chocolate on his face in Kiki Chocolate

The Kiki Series is a series of competitions where each member tastes a randomly selected product, mostly food and drink but once cigarettes, from many different brands blindfolded. After the tasting period, they must find the product they tasted from a selection of 8 to 20 different products of various brands. Anyone who selects correctly will receive a 100,000 yen prize money, otherwise they take a variety of punishments, such as being hit in the groin by a Chinko Machine or, more commonly, getting slapped or sprayed CO2 gas by a foreigner.

Kiki13 Hamada batsu

Hamada getting darted in the ass by a black demon in Kiki Chocolate

The Kiki series started in 1998 with Matsumoto asserting that he can correctly differentiate instant noodles. Out of 30 instant noodles he tasted he only get 8 guesses correct. The first proper Kiki episode, with all members participating and the current rule established, is Canned Coffee a year later. The series has been going on, usually at the rate of one to three episodes per year, with the latest airing on 26 April 2015.

It is probable that the wins are not 100% honest. In many instances the members (especially Hamada) take cues from their peers when guessing. Another point is that the senior members from Downtown has the most wins.
