60-Year-Old Candy Taste Test

– It's like eating a shoe (upbeat music) You may have heard of Christmas in July, but today it's Halloween in April, (cheering) minus the costumes and the going door to door and the trickery

– We're pretty much just gonna eat a bunch of candy but, it's not just any old candy It's time for to be discontinued, candy edition – We're gonna 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 wack – 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 – [Rhett] That's $32 worth of M&M's right there sucker – Let's open these up

– See if they've held up – It does say best before November of 2018 These things last forever They are not expired – Fresh

– But they're gone – They're gone They're not in production – Make it dramatic – Did you get one of every color? – I got one of every color

– So did I and other ones too – There's 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 (crew laughs) 'cause they lead with something like sour and unexpected – Almost like a butter

– Then once you know that they're cheesecake – Pretty good, right? – [Link] They're pretty good – [Rhett] They are

– 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 gonna continue to happen – We're really loading up 'cause we know we might get poisoned later

(crew laughs) – This is really good – This is pretty easy – [Rhett And Link] We're saying bring it back – In 2007, Tics Tacs Is that what this is 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 We purchased these out of production for $1999

They expired in September of 2014 Whoa, that's a lot of these – [Rhett] Are Tic Tacs normally that hard? – I think so (crew laughs) Oh gosh A Tic Tac, you should just put in your mouth and let it sit there

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? You don't have to make room They got shelves at the warehouse That's fishy to me

It was something that people liked and then they brought it back and they changed it and people didn't like that and now they're out of production I just don't feel there's any demand for this and I'm definitely not demanding it – I don't like it because it looks like a pill, like a drug I don't like doing that – Say no to drugs

– [Link] Nah that's whack Keep it away – In the summer of 2004, Trolli confectionary brand released roadkill themed gummies These are flattened animals with tire marks on them and then the 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 (crew laughs) We paid $9 and they expired July of 2005

I like gummies now – I usually only eat free range gummies that have died peacefully in their sleep from natural causes but, for the sake of the question I'm willing to First of all, let's explore these a little bit

– It sounded more like you just unpacked a pack of marbles versus gummies – That's not a good sign – Pretty hard – Oh, and there's seeds on them or something like they've developed spots – This is a snake that's been run over

This is another snake – That's a chicken – Is that a turtle or a beaver? It's not the first time I've asked that – You got a chicken, a turtle Maybe it is a beaver, a raccoon, I don't know but let's eat it

– The concept is not offensive to me but maybe the taste will be – Extra gummy – It's so chewy The yellow one does not taste good – The red one does not taste good

If you're gonna be in a chewing competition, 'case you know there are those, and you need to train, get yourself some 13 year old gummies – Oh gosh – I would think you'd really go to town Your jowls man – Is it just me or do you taste a soapy-ness? – The flavor has exited the building

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

– [Rhett And Link] Nah 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 Rhett, this bar is at least 37 years old

We paid $2029 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

– [Rhett] Oh gosh Reggie's got a baseball card in there Oh gosh The smell that came out of this thing – Let me smell that

– It smells like Reggie after a few games (groaning) – It smells like the back dredges of a Army surplus store (crew laughs) – [Rhett] Let me just pull it out on the card – It's like you open up the fire door and trying to get out of the-oh my gosh It looks like a turd

It's got peanuts – Just imagine how beautiful that was at one point 37 years ago when this thing came off of the production line – You're eating it off of his card Milk chocolate, peanut butter, and roasted peanuts

There's peanut butter in this thing This thing should be freaking 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 since you love baseball cards so much – First? – Oh gosh – Imma let you try it too man

– That peanut butter is really holding up – Oh gosh – It's lost its elasticity, wouldn't you say? – It looks like bad nougat Dink it It's like eating a shoe

– Actually it tastes exactly like just eating Play-Doh straight – It really does – It's got a gelatinous, clay-ness, sour It's really sour I think I might need to wash Reggie out of my mouth

– The insects that we've eaten on this show taste better than this easily Reggie, I hope you've aged better than your bar (everyone laughs) – I think we're going to say nah that's whack Now we have arrived 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 it's just a flavored tablet that you drop into water to create a fun fizzy 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 – It's gotta be safe to drink It's made by a witch

Bewitching soft drink tablets, artificially sweetened, dietary – Oh it's a dietary? – Here's the sugar – Sign me up – Pop it? – I would peel it It's freaking 62 years old

You don't wanna bust it too much I wanna keep it intact Can I use my fingers 'cause yours don't seem to be working – Here we go – There you go

– [Link] Look at that There's one – [Rhett] And there's another one – Two tablets One for you, one for me

This is basically like Emergen-C but it may cause an emergency – That's right Let's find out It's still fizzy Still so 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 – It smells innocent enough Famous last words – Wonder if it fizzes on the other end on the way out

Dink it, sink it – That is fun (crew laughs) – And refreshing – That is so fun – It's refreshing

– Fizzies really is fun – I was putting it up 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, it should definitely be brought back I think – At this point I feel like we've got so many fizzy things The fizzy market is pretty tight You gotta slide that pill right in there I don't know

– What if it fizz but then it also turned into a big dinosaur? – Now you're talking – [Link] Bring it back with dinosaurs – Thank you for liking, commenting, and subscribing – You know what time it is – Hi I'm Trevor
