UPDATE: Watch our foodie experts use smell, touch and taste to determine which beignets are from Morning Call and from Cafe du Monde.

Our New Orleans foodie influencers are going to see if they can tell the difference from Cafe du Monde and Morning Call beignets. #beignyayfriyay

As the Beignet Battle between Cafe du Monde and Morning Call continues, people have started to tout their beignet alliances.

As the hashtags of #TeamCafeduMonde and #TeamMorningCall emerged, it got us thinking. We all may have our preferences when it comes to the two NOLA reigning kings of the beloved fried dough treat, but would we really be able to tell the difference if put to a blind taste-test?

Hopefully, we may get an answer today as we put three New Orleans Instagram foodies to the test, asking them to share if they can smell, touch, see and taste the difference.

We will be conducting our little experiment live at 10:30 a.m. at PJ’s Coffee at 5432 Magazine Street with Lorin Godin (@nolafoodgoddess), Jessica Steel (@fatgirlnola) and Paula (@nolabites).

If you can’t join us this morning, we hope to see you at our Launch Party on Thursday at the House of Blues, where we will be highlighting “Local Booze, Bartenders and Bounce” with unlimited free cocktails from Atelier Vie, special guests, bounce artists, Denisia and Big Freedia and the most talented local bartenders in the Crescent City!
