60-Year-Old Candy Taste Test


Uh-uh. It’s like eating a shoe.( music playing )You may have heard
of Christmas in July, but today it’s Halloween
in April, minus the costumes and the going door to door
and the trickery. Yeah, we’re pretty much just
gonna eat a bunch of candy, but it’s not
just any old candy. It’s time for… So we’re going to be taste
testing discontinued
or out-of-production, limited edition candies that we bought off of the eBay, and then we’re gonna decide bring it back,
or nah, that’s whack. All right, first up,
M&M’s released a limited edition white cheesecake flavor
for Valentine’s Day 2017, and we have acquired it. Toss it.
Here we go. This cost us $32. Wow. That’s $32 worth of M&M’s
right there, sucker. Um, let’s open these up.
I mean, it does say– – See if they’ve held up.
– Best before November, 2018. So these things last forever. They are not expired. Oh, well, fresh. But they will be… But they’re gone. …if we– Yeah, they’re gone. They’re not in production. Make it dramatic. Did you get one
of every color? Look, I got one of every flav–
color. So did I and other ones, too. So there’s, like a flesh tone, which is interesting. And then pink and white. I’m gonna eat
all three at once. If you gave me these
and you didn’t tell me
they were cheesecake, I would think something
was wrong with them
’cause they have like a– they lead
with something like sour
and unexpected. Almost like a butter. Once you know that they are…
cheesecake… – Pretty good, right?
– Pretty good. Yeah, they are. Now, when you bite it in half, you can see it’s
white chocolate. These were released
Valentine’s Day. If roses says,
“I love you,” what does giving your lover
cheesecake M&M’s say? I don’t know. “You need
to put on a few pounds”? “I’m sleeping
with your sister”? Are you talking to me or… No. I don’t have a sister. I’m just conjecturing
what it might mean. These are really good. It’s refreshing to do this
segment with something
that’s not expired yet. I know that’s not going
to continue to happen. We’re really loading up
’cause we know we might
get poisoned later. – Yeah, this was pretty easy.
– These are really good. We’re saying, “Bring it back.” In 2007, Tics– Tics Tacs– Is that what it’s called? – Tic Tacs–
– Tic Tacs. …discontinued the classic
cinnamon Tic Tacs to make way for newer flavors, and then after petitions
broke out on social media to bring cinnamon back– ♪ We’re bringing
cinnamon back ♪– Tic Tac unveiled a new and
improved cinnamon spice Tic Tac
in 2012, but these didn’t stay
in production, so we purchased these
out of production for 19.99, and they expired in September
of 2014. Okay. Oh, that’s a lot of these. ( clears throat ) Oh. Are Tic Tacs normally
that hard? I think so. Oh, gosh. Now– ‘Cause a Tic Tac, you usually just put it in your
mouth and let it sit there. – Yeah.
– It tastes like– exactly like those little red
hot cinnamon things
that I hate. I don’t understand the whole,
“We gotta make room
for other Tic Tacs.’ Really? How much room do you need
for a Tic Tac? Can’t you just have more than– You don’t have to make room. They’ve got shelves
at the warehouse, and they gotta make r–
That’s fishy to me. Something that people liked,
and then they brought it back
and they changed it, People didn’t like that.
And now they’re out of
production. I just don’t feel that
there’s any demand for this,
I’m definitely not demanding it. I don’t like it
because it looks like a pill,
like a drug. – Yep.
– And I don’t like doing that. Yep, say no to drugs. Link: So nah, that’s whack. – Rhett: Yep.
– Link: Keep it away. In the summer of 2004, Trolli confectionery brand released road kill themed
gummies. These are flattened animals
with tire marks on them, and then they quickly killed
production of the gummies
in 2005 after the American Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Animals called out the candies
for being insensitive ’cause apparently gummy
animals have feelings, too. We paid $9 and they expired
July of 2005. – Now–
– I like gummies, now. I usually only eat
free-range gummies that have died peacefully in their sleep
from natural causes. Yep, but for the sake
of the question, I’m willing to… First of all, let’s explore
these a little bit. It didn’t sound– It sounded
more like you just unpacked
a pack of marbles versus gummies. – Pretty hard.
– That’s not a good sign. Oh, and there’s, like,
seeds on them or something, like they’ve developed spots. This is a snake
that’s been run over. This is– What is–
another snake. – This is like a–
– That’s a chicken. Is that a turtle or a beaver? It’s not the first time
I’ve asked that. I’ve got a chicken,
a turtle– Oh, no, maybe it is a beaver
or a raccoon, I don’t know. Let’s eat it. But, I mean, the concept
is not offensive to me. Maybe the taste will be. Oh, extra gummy. That is– That is so chewy. Well… The yellow one
does not taste good. The red one
does not taste good. If you’re gonna be
in a chewing competition, ’cause you know there are those, and you needed to train, get yourself
some 13-year-old gummies. Oh, gosh. I don’t think– You’d really go
to town on your jowls, man. Is it just me or do you taste
a soapiness? The flavor has exited
the building. – Maybe that’s what…
– That’s what happens
when they get hit. Yeah, I know.
It’s like a dead gummy left for dead
on the side of the road. The sweetness
inside every gummy bear – is the soul of the gummy bear.
– It’s gone. Link: Nah…
Both: That’s whack. Back in 1978 the Reggie! bar
was created. It was named for the 14 time,
American League all-star
baseball player Reggie Jackson. It was discontinued in 1981, so, Rhett, this bar is
at least 37 years old. We paid $20.29 for it. I’m almost afraid to open it. Reggie’s gonna be upset
with us. Reggie, I’m sorry, but we have
to taste your bar. Oh, gosh, Reggie’s got
a baseball card in there. Oh, gosh, the smell that came
out of this thing. Let me sm–
let me smell it. Smells like Reggie
after a few games. ( shudders ) It smells like the back dredges of a army surplus store. Let me just pull it out on the
card. It’s like you open up
the fire door, and trying to get out–
Oh, my gosh, it looks like a turd. It’s got peanuts. But just imagine how beautiful
it was at one point. 37 years ago and this thing
came off of the production line. You’re eating it off
of his card. That’s… “Milk chocolate, peanut butter,
and roasted peanuts.” There’s peanut butter
in this thing. This thing should be
freakin’ awesome. Okay, eat it. Try it. It’s got an Upper Deck card
in it. – Yes, it does.
– It smells so bad. – I think I’m gonna have to let
you try this one, Link…
– First? …since you love
baseball cards so much. – Oh, gosh.
– I’m gonna– I’m gonna let you try it too,
man. That peanut butter’s
really holding up. – Oh, gosh.
– It’s lost it’s elasticity. Wouldn’t you say? Yeah, it looks
like bad nougat. – All right.
– Dink it. Uh-uh. It’s like eating a shoe. It’s– Actually it tastes exactly like just eating
Play-Doh straight. It really does. It’s got, like,
a gelatinous clayness, sour– It’s startin– It’s really– It’s really sour. I need to wash–
I think I might need to wash
Reggie out of my mouth. The insects that we’re eaten
on this show taste better
than this. Easily. Man. Reggie, I hope you’ve aged
better than your bar. Yeah, I think we’re going
to say… Now we arrive at
the illegitimate child of Kool-Aid and Alka-Seltzer, first introduced in 1956– that’s 62 years ago– we have Fizzies. We paid $150
for that package of Fizzies. Good gosh, two, four, six,
eight tablets back there. Basically just a flavored tablet that you drop into water to create a fun, fizzie,
candy-like drink. And it also says you can add
additional sugar to the drink ’cause there’s not a lot of
sweetener in this thing. Well, it’s gotta be
safe to drink.
It’s made by a witch. Yeah. “Bewitching soft drink tablets, artificially sweetened,
dietary.” Oh, is it dietary? – Oh, well, sign me up.
– Here’s the sugar. How do I– – Just, you– maybe you–
– Pop it? – Just…
– Well, I would peel it. ‘Cause I think that–
I mean– It’s just frickin’
62 years old. You don’t wanna bust it
too much. Wanna keep it intact. – Okay, I’m trying to get–
– Can I use my fingers? ‘Cause yours don’t seem
to be working. Here we go, here we go,
here we go. Ooh, yeah. Look at that. – There’s one.
– And there’s another one. Two tablets.
One for you and one for me. So this is basically like
Emergen-C, but it may cause an emergency. That’s right.
Let’s find out. All right. – Oh.
– Rhett: Oh, it’s still fizzy. Still so fizzy. ♪ Fizzy, fizzy, fizzy fizzy,
fizzy, fizzy, fizzy, fizzy ♪ ♪ Fizzy, fizzy,
fizzy fizzy, fizzy– ♪ Whatever makes things fizzy can hold up in a tablet
for 62 years. You wanna just drink it
straight or you wanna add
sugar? I don’t think
I wanna add sugar. All right. Smells innocent enough. Famous last words. Mm… Wonder if it fizzes
on the other end. On the way out. Dink it.
Sink it. Oh, that is fun. – And refreshing.
– That is so fun. – Refreshing.
– Fizzies really is fun. I was putting it up here
so we get some ASMR action. I’m afraid
to continue to drink it – but after 62 years…
– It’s good. I want more of it. …if it holds up this well,
I mean, it should definitely be brought
back, I think. I mean, but– there’s–
I mean, at this point I feel like we’ve got so many
fizzy things, the fizzy market is pretty–
( clicks tongue )
…pretty tight. You’re gonna slide that pill
right in there? I don’t know. What if it fizzed,
but then it also turned into a
( makes bubbling sound ) – …like a big dinosaur?
– Now you’re talking. Link:Bring it back
with dinosaurs.
Yes. Thank you for liking,
commenting, and subscribing. You know what time it is. – Hi, I’m Trevor.

California, and ( together )

  1. Chocolate has a 10 year shelf life. THe white stuff that forms on chocolate over the years, will not hurt you and doesnt mean that the chocolate is bad. Also hard candy, like Jolly Ranchers, Suckers, etc. Never expire. Sugar lasts forever as long as it doesnt get wet.

  2. Just ordered some of the Cheesecake M&M’s on Walmart.com LoL. All the reviews say they’re great! And I’ve never even heard of cinnamon tic-tacs! You guys! You’re not supposed to bite on them right off the bat lol!! The orange ones are the best and classic.

  3. seriously they ate nuts that have been pecked with air for 37years if that shit ain´t ransid i dont know what

  4. In Sweden we have lots of those fizzies but not those exact ones, our tablets are loaded with vitamins. Most people get vitamin C and D tablets and they fiz like that.

  5. M&M listened and they’re bringing back the Cheesecake this year… https://www.bustle.com/p/white-cheesecake-mandms-are-back-for-valentines-day-2019-15577969

  6. I know I’m months late but you should know that Reggie Bar is actually a reboot of the original, it’s from 1993. Upper Deck (which didn’t exist until 1988 by the way) rebooted the candy bar to commemorate Jackson’s induction to the Hall of Fame.

  7. Road Kill Gummies? Trolli knew they were asking for trouble. I never knew about them, but vegetarian or not, i would have boycotted the company. They're not kosher anyway because all their products contain gelatin, gross.

  8. Peta is so dumb.. They are offended by gummie candy.. i mean even back in 2005 they were lunatics. Focus on real animal suffering and stop telling me to not eat cheeseburgers.

  9. well some of those candies are expired so they'll really taste awful. i don't think they deserve to be rated bad because of their expired versions tho

  10. That Reggie bar was made in '93 Upper Deck became a company in '89. The original Reggie bar came out in '78

  11. I get that they are rare but you wayyyy overpaid for that candy, honestly I’m not sure you guys search very hard.

  12. Good thing this guys are still alive despite of what they've eaten on this channel.. 😂. Just sayin' it

  13. Ahoyhoy There, Fellow YouTuberinos! Ever tried Simpsons Tic-Tacs? Blueberry (Marge) Bubblegum (Bart) and the very strange tasting Donut (Homer) flavours. I loved the Blueberry. There's also Simpsons Duff Energy Drink ( has a nice fizzy head , almost like real booze) andFlaming Moe Blueberry Energy Drink . I think you should have an all Simpsons consumables taste test, with the Tic-Tacs, Energy Drinks,Eat my Shorts and KrustyO's Cereal , plus any other Simpsons discontinued and still in production snacks. Why not do some other discontinued cartoon snack taste test videos? These are really fun segments and Link Gags ( literaly ) are almost as as hilarious as Simpsons Couch Gags.

  14. Ahoyhoy There, Fellow YouTuberinos! Link Gags (Literally) are almost as hilarious as Simpsons Couch Gags!

  15. My grand Mother here in México 🇲🇽 told me about those "fizzies" things they used to make drinks, she said she loved the rootbeer flavor.

  16. Id like to understand rhetts gift scale. If roses are "i love you" and cheesecake m&ms are "im sleeping with your sister" whats inbetween

  17. I love cheesecake and cream cheese flavored stuff. I found the cheesecake M&M’s online and they weren’t that expensive. Definitely gonna get some soon! They should make more cheesecake candy, like candy bars with cheesecake and caramel or cheesecake and strawberries… mmm… can you tell I’m pregnant 😂😂😇😇

  18. About the Reggie bars.. How did they have a Upper Deck cards in them? Upper Deck didn’t start making cards until 1989 and the Reggie Bars you say were discontinued in 1981….
    Update: The Reggie Upper Deck Cards were in 1993… maybe they brought them back for a limited time.
