– The battle for the worst candy rages on. – Let’s talk about that. (alarm rings)
(playful theme music) (fire blasts) Good Mythical Morning. – It’s day two of our worst
Halloween candy tournament, which means that we’re one
day closer to crowning a loser and one day closer to crowning
some teeth, am I right? – (chuckles) If you haven’t
seen yesterday’s episode, pause this one and go watch that one so you’re all caught up. Today we’ve got eight
more terrible candies to sink our teeth into. We will consume them all
but only four will come out the other end of our assessment. – Ooh! – It’s time for Clash of
the Crappy Candies: Day Two. – Now before we get into
it, just a reminder, the Tour of Mythicality
has a few final stops: November 8th, 9th, and 10th in Toronto, New Jersey and Connecticut. These shows are close to being sold out so don’t miss your chance. Go to TourOfMythicality.com for tickets. – And even if you can’t make the show, you can still get a signed
copy of the Book of Mythicality which our show is based on. The final 100 copies
are at Mythical.store. – All right here’s a quick recap. If you take a look over
at our Brobdingnagian, Bunyan-esque bracket board,
you’ll see that four candies have advanced to the finals. Those are black licorice, Nik-L-Nips, Dots and Good & Plenty. – Hello Randy. – Happy Cotton Candy Day, Daddies. I’ve licked some of the stuff
you’re about to eat today. (Rhett laughs) – Mm. You know what, I don’t mind. I don’t mind at all.
– Me neither. – Yeah it’ll be a fun surprise. – All right we got four more spots that we wanna advance to today, so the eight that are
gonna be facing off are: candy corn. – [Rhett] Bit-O-Honey. – [Link] Laffy Taffy Banana. – [Rhett] Hot Tamales. – [Link] Necco Wafers. – [Rhett] Tootsie Rolls. – [Link] Almond Joy. – [Rhett] And Circus Peanuts. – Let’s taste. (thunder crashes)
(dark music) – Our first match-up is the second seed with 10,016 votes, candy corn. Against the 15th seed with
2,204 votes, Bit-O-Honey. – Okay now I got some data on candy corn. – Love data. – So just take you a
piece here and you tell me how do you normally eat this, like– – Like that.
– Oh like that? Okay well here’s the data. Almost half of candy corn consumers, according to the National
Confectioner’s Association gobble the whole piece at once. So that’s the majority. 43% start with the narrow white end. Just bit a little bit off. – I’ll try that.
– Another 10%, the true renegades, begin eating
the wider yellow end first. – [Rhett] Those people are nuts. – Leaving the .01% of
them who use the pieces to build a life-size person
and pretend it’s a real friend. – Oh yeah, yeah, I’ve done that too. Okay, Bit-O-Honey, introduced in 1924, is made from taffy
flavored with real honey. But just a minute, let’s not go crazy! – I didn’t realize it was taffy. – Oh well, whoa. You’re gonna love this, man. I hope you are if you got good taste. Now–
– I like candy corn. – This is kinda crazy, according
to the Bit-O-Honey website, they say, quote, “Famous
Hollywood types take a spoonful “of crushed diamonds
once a day for vitality. “For the rest of us, it’s almond bits “and delicious almond bits
can be found in every bite “of Bit-O-Honey.”
– Wow. That’s some good information, man. – Listen, I been in LA for seven years and no one has fed me
a spoonful of diamonds and I’ve asked a lot of people at parties. Trust me. So you haven’t had this before? I recommend–
– I have but it’s been awhile. – Taking a small bite,
because, we’ll be here all day. I used to literally seek these out. It’s got a great, you know, almost like a spoonful–
– Taste. – Of crushed diamonds. No, it’s just a spoonful of almond bits and a little bit of honey. – That is a very tasty candy. But this is so much fun, I mean look. You think this is corn? No, it’s a candy. It’s a trick. – (chuckles) Oh gosh.
– And you can make teeth. And you can– – You’re not doing a good
job of selling it right now. – Different ways to eat it. Some people really hate this stuff. – I don’t hate it. I mean, again, I would not seek this out, and if I was given a big pile of candy, candy corn would be
one of the last things, of course, I’m gonna eat it all. But that’d be one of the
last things I would eat. – Candy corn is not bad. It tastes like hardened cake icing. That’s not bad. – You’re still not doing
a great job of selling it. – Nope, it’s not as good as this. This has a magical taste.
– Bit-O-Honey is great. – It should be eliminated from
our worst candy competition as soon as possible. – Send the candy corn through, Randy! – [Link] Look at the technique. – Yeah, a lot of people bite
the ends of candy corns, but I swallow ’em whole. Like a snake eating a pig. (thunder crashes)
(dark music) – And now we have the seventh
seed with 3,922 votes: Hot Tamales, versus the
10th seed with 3,866 votes. Laffy Taffy, banana flavored specifically. – Okay Hot Tamales introduced in 1950. They are the number one cinnamon
candy brand in the U.S.! Khloe Kardashian keeps
a bot of Hot Tamales on her bedside table. Don’t ask me how I know. And fun fact–
– Her Instagram feed. Jerk. – It would take 87,386
theater boxes of Hot Tamales to fill the entire Kardasian’s mansion. Don’t ask me how I know. – How you know? – I been there a few times. I asked every one of those girls for a spoonful of diamonds. – Came up empty?
– Yep. Every one of them rejected me. – Woo, that’s a, that
wakes up your mouth hole. Woo woo! – This is like the atomic
dealios, the other one. – Yeah? – The Atomic Fireballs, but not a sucky. It’s a chewy.
– Right. (crew laughs) It doesn’t have the pacing.
– It’s not a sucky. – Of a sucky. It has the pacing of a chewy. – Yeah, chewy’s a lot faster than a sucky. – Speaking of chewy,
people particularly hate the banana flavored Laffy Taffy. First produced in the 1970s. According to the Wonka brand,
each piece of Laffy Taffy is exactly 50% Laffy and 50% Taffy. (Rhett chuckles unenthusiastically) Yeah, and the Laffy actually is 50% industrial strength glue. – Oh, really? – So eat it up, son. – Son!
– Eat it up, son! I’m gonna give you a
whoopin’ if you don’t eat it. – What bus crossed the ocean?
– Oh yeah, there’s jokes. – There’s jokes on ’em. I don’t know what the answer is. I don’t know what the punchline is. Do you have to go to a
website or something? – Man, that’s–
– Or do you just get the punchline when you eat the taffy? I can’t get the frickin’
wrapper off of the taffy! This is a manufacturing malfunction. – Just eat the back half of that. – Mm-mm. – You don’t wanna chew
Laffy Taffy too aggressively because again, it’ll
get caught in your teeth like those gum drops. – An ocean bus! It’s not a good joke. – I didn’t have my hopes high. – Oh, this is not good. This is one of the
first ones I don’t like. I think that’s saying a lot. – It tastes a little like banana. Of course I swallowed it and
some of it’s in my stomach, some of it’s dangling down my throat and some of it’s still in my mouth, but it’s still all one piece. – Yeah. – Like how am I supposed to do this? – Yeah yeah, if I reach
in there and grab you, I could toss you across the room. There’s no way, there’s no. Hot Tamales, again, it’s
a fun little experience. Laffy Taffy, we gotta move it on, right? – It doesn’t even taste
like banana really. Tastes like nasty. Move this nasty on please. – You know I used to write the jokes on the Laffy Taffys, you wanna hear one? – [Rhett And Link] Yeah. – Why’d the chicken cross the road? – I don’t know, why? – In a futile attempt to
escape the coming darkness. – I like that. – Yeah, thanks, Daddy. (thunder crashes)
(dark music) – Our next matchup is between seed six with 5,185 votes, Necco Wafers. And seed 11 with 2,649
votes, Tootsie Rolls. – I know what Tootsie
Rolls are but Necco Wafers, I had to do some research. They were first produced in 1847. Necco stands for New England
Confectionary Company and lovers of the candy
are called Neccophiliacs. I made that part up, I’m
just trying to have like a– – I like it though. – Like a grassroots campaign
for someone to like this crap. – [Rhett] I’m sure
that’ll start it right up. – I’ve never tasted ’em. In the 1930s, explorer
Richard Byrd took two and a half tons of these
things to the South Pole. Almost a pound a week for each of his men during their two year
stay in the Antarctic. I assume they ate other things too but two and a half tons of
Necco Wafers and no women. Sounds like quite a party. – Did he think these
would bring sustenance? – Oh my gosh, they’re
harder than I anticipated. – It’s polar bear food. – They toted this stuff
all the way to the pole. – What? Did they all die? I think they did all die. – It’s chalky. It’s– – Maybe it works as sidewalk chalk. (candy scraping)
Oh! It kinda does! – [Link] You just drew an anarchy symbol. (Rhett chuckles) – Totally unintentional. – I can’t process that this is even candy. – Well keep processing, I’m gonna tell you about Tootsie Rolls. Invented by Leo Hirshfield in 1907. He named them after his daughter Clara, who he also called Tootsie. Is it tut-see or toot-see? – Tut-see.
– Tut-see. I go with tut-see. But if you say toot-see, I
won’t hold it against you. They were included in every
World War II soldier’s rations because they wouldn’t
melt or go bad over time. And, 64 million Tootsie
Rolls get made every day. That’s roughly 740 per second. So while I was talking, there were a lot of Tootsie Rolls made. – I did not know–
– Could you imagine being at the end of that pipe? (crew laughs) (makes blowing sound) (Link mimics horn) I think it’s one pipe. (makes blowing sound) – And then you’re just,
right into your mouth. – Yeah.
(Link makes sucking sound) Where’s the Tootsie pipe? Somewhere in Pennsylvania I’m sure. Okay. – I did not know that these didn’t melt. I wouldn’t have, I would
have bet against that. – I’ve always liked ’em. – I used to eat these as a kid. My nanny would keep these around. – It’s not quite chocolate. – It’s a weird–
– I think that’s actually the slogan.
– Mm-hm. If you love chocolate, you
might almost like this. I think is the slogan. It’s weird, it’s kinda like a
Yoo-hoo’s not chocolate milk. It’s a weird chocolate drink. – It’s like Yoo-hoo extract. – It’s like a Yoo-hoo log. – Yeah. – That’s exactly what it is. And that’s a good thing. – We should talk to Yoo-hoo. – This stuff right here. – Take ’em to the South Pole. (candies clanking) – Give it to a pirate. Look, it’s booty! – All right, put the
booty in the next round ’cause it’s horrible. Necco Wafers moving on. – [Link] There’s a cloud going everywhere. – Yeah, I like Necco Wafers ’cause it reminds me of chewing on bones. – Hmm. – You nailed it. (thunder crashes)
(dark music) And finally we have seed
three with 9,162 votes. That is Circus Peanuts. Versus seed 14 with 2,305 votes. Almond Joy. – Okay, Circus Peanuts
created in the 1800s. And rumor has it, the weird choice to make them banana flavored stuck after a freak banana oil accident. You know I had a banana oil accident during my dream last night. Weird fact, Lucky Charms
were create in 1963 by General Mills employee John Holahan after he chopped up
pieces of Circus Peanuts into a bowl of Cheerios and fell in love with the flavor combo. When you taste these, this is not a joke. – I’ve never tasted these. – You will taste Lucky
Charms marshmallows, because that’s where they
got the idea for this. – What? – No one has ever claimed
to be the inventor of these and you might find out in a second why. – I did not know they
were banana flavored. Are they? I can’t even tell. It tastes like gum. – It is not great. – It literally tastes like
gum that melts in your mouth. It’s gum that you can’t chew. – Gum that you can’t chew. – ‘Cause it disappears too quickly. – That’s exactly what it is. – All right versus Almond
Joy introduced in 1946. It should be noted–
– Uh-oh. – That they’re hard to hold onto. You guys voted Almond Joy
one of the worst candies, but you didn’t even mention Mounds! Mounds and Almond Joy are the same thing except for an almond! – Yep. – Mounds aren’t even on your list! Must really hate almonds. – Are you bitter about this?
– It’s just weird! I mean I love almonds. I don’t like coconut. Look, one almond! You take this almond off, look. Take that almond off,
look, this is a Mound now. All of a sudden you love it? You add the almond back
and you’re like ew! Worst candy ever! – I think Mounds might be dark chocolate. It might be a little darker. All I know is, I love it. One time I was at home, I
was watching a commercial for those new little Almond
Joy bites, the little ones. – Uh-huh. – It was like one o’clock
and I got in my car and went to the store and got it. That’s how much I love Almond Joy. – I don’t even like coconut in anything– – But you like it, don’t you? – But this is approaching
palatable for me. – We’ve got approaching palatable! – This is gum that you can’t chew. – Circus Peanuts seem like a mistake. I’m surprised they’re still around. I think there’s no way that they can’t be the loser and move on.
– Yeah they gotta go, man. – All right Circus Peanuts
moving on to the next round. – [Link] You like Circus Peanuts? – Oh yeah, I love ’em. I’ve got some on me right now.
– Where? – Hey Rhett, wanna find ’em? (Rhett laughs) – Yeah, after this. – Yeah, cool, meet me by my van. – Okay, be sure to come back tomorrow where we see the eight finalists face off to determine the worst candy of all time. That’s licorice, Nik-L-Nips, Dots, Good & Plenty, candy corn, Laffy Taffy, Necco Wafers or Circus Peanuts. – All right, thank you for liking, commenting and subscribing. – You know what time it is. – I’m Braden.
– And I’m Curtel. And we’re at the 2018 Fan
Expo in Toronto, Canada with your favorite friend,
Cotton Candy Randy. – Hi Daddies. And now it’s time to spin
the Wheel of Mythicality. Bye! – How can Cotton Candy
Randy be there and here? – I don’t know.
– At the same, what a mystery. Click the top link to watch
