Candy Talk, Episode 29: Simply the Best, Better Than All the Rest

Open a box of Runts® and settle in — America’s second favorite candy podcast is back! Today our intrepid taste testers do a deep dive on candies that come in a single package with multiple flavors — and why some people think certain flavors are irresistibly delicious, while others think they taste like “pure sadness … like my mom forgot me at the mall.”

Have you ever wondered:

  • Why do you like the flavors you like?
  • Why do some people (who obviously have terrible taste) dislike that same flavor?
  • If you love banana-flavored Runts® are you a serial killer?
  • If you’re a Taurus, do you automatically love banana-flavored Runts®?
  • Where have all the lime-flavored candies gone?
  • Which flavor of Jolly Ranchers® does Ingredient videographer and Candy Talk guest host, Joe Johnson, think tastes like fabric softener?
  • How does Ingredient videographer and Candy Talk guest host, Joe Johnson, know what fabric softener tastes like?

In this “scintillating and titillating” episode, we answer the confection world’s most pressing questions. Join us!
