Adorable Kid Thinks Candy Corn Is A Candle, Tosses It In The Garbage

A YouTuber named Kyle Quinn gave some candy corn (which is garbage) to an outrageously cute sixth-grader in China. That sixth-grader thought it was a candle, and threw it in the trash. That sixth grader is the best sixth grader. » 11/07/14 9:01am 11/07/14 9:01am

Candy Corn Is Garbage

Many people like candy corn, such as hobos, serial murderers, and Satan. But actually, candy corn is terrible. If you give it out to trick-or-treating children this evening, you belong in fucking prison. » 10/31/14 1:25pm 10/31/14 1:25pm

Which Candies Have Have The Most Sugar?

Ostensibly, this chart from WaPo's Wonkblog is about ranking candy by its sugar content so you can consume the maximum amount of sugar, and it does a fine job of that. But looking at it, all I can think about is how everything north of Gummy Bears coming in at a full 70 percent sugar is so much more alarming than I… » 10/31/14 10:54am 10/31/14 10:54am

M&M's Flavors, Ranked

There's plenty to mock about the leaders of the dude-food movement—Fieri, Zimmern, the Epic Meal Timers—and their bag-tag army of regular doofs united by pork-themed t-shirts and their exaggerated disdain for small plates and Whole Foods. But we're not here to make fun of their indoor sunglasses or their spicy… » 6/25/14 2:16pm 6/25/14 2:16pm

Chart: Does Your Choice Of Candy Reveal Your Politics?

We already covered this for booze, but the research firm NMRPP has released a chart showing the political leanings (x-axis) and voter turnout (y-axis) of various major candy brands. Bubble size is proportional to the population of survey respondents who ate each type of candy. » 2/13/14 11:15am 2/13/14 11:15am

Marshawn Lynch "Skittle Sausage" Looks Like The Worst Thing Ever

I want to be openminded about this, because I will eat pretty much anything. But the idea of adding a giant bag of Skittles to hot sausage seems as gross at that screengrab looks. » 1/27/14 5:32pm 1/27/14 5:32pm

I Sucked on a Breast Milk Lollipop and Lived to Write About It

Back in June I covered an exciting new product hitting the novelty lollipop market: the Texas-based Lollyphile Breast Milk-Flavored Lollipop. My feelings on the matter were a blend of maximum-lolz, medium-nausea, and the smug comfort of living very, very far away from Texas. Here's what I wrote at the time: » 8/02/13 2:00pm 8/02/13 2:00pm

First Weird Injury Of NFL Season Caused By A Jolly Rancher Candy

Cowboys safety Barry Church missed the last 13 games of 2012 because of a torn Achilles. He's good to go for this season, though he did have to miss practice on Monday because of a piece of candy he ate a few weeks ago. » 7/31/13 9:50am 7/31/13 9:50am

Will Eating Decades-Old Athlete Candy Bars Kill You? A Taste Test

"You're not going to eat it, are you?" the eBay seller asked, after we had completed our purchase. "People have been asking me if they can eat it, and that's probably not a good idea." » 2/14/13 3:40pm 2/14/13 3:40pm

How To Eat Halloween Candy: A Guide And A Power Ranking For Sad Adults

That the Snickers bar is the best of all candy bars is a point so obvious and unassailable that it needn't be argued here. What's odd and paradoxical-seeming, and thus noteworthy, is that its superiority is the precise reason why the Snickers is not the best candy bar for Halloween. That is to say, its Halloweeniness… » 10/27/12 1:45pm 10/27/12 1:45pm

Carlos Beltran Shares The Love, Gum

Late last night, a reader pointed us to a Carlos Beltran tweet, the latest in a series of strange tweets from the resurgent Cardinals outfielder. And it was pretty odd: "I hope you have enjoyed chewing gum today." A nice sentiment, to be sure. We at Deadspin certainly hope you have enjoyed chewing gum today, if… » 7/06/12 12:45pm 7/06/12 12:45pm

Parents: Don't Put Any Goddamn Candy In The Goodie Bag

I go to a lot of children's birthday parties. These parties are virtually identical. You go to a gym, you take off your kid's shoes, you hand your kid over to the 19-year-old girl making $6 an hour and wearing a bright red or blue shirt with the name of the gym on it (PLAY ZONE! GYMTASTIC! BALLS AND SHIT!), then you… » 1/25/12 4:00pm 1/25/12 4:00pm

Marshawn Lynch's Skittles Sneakers Give Him Superpowers

Before Saturday, no one had rushed for 100 yards against the 49ers defense, and no one had run for a touchdown against the 49ers defense. Before Saturday, nobody had worn Skittles sneakers against the 49ers defense. Correlation is not necessarily causation, but this time it totally was, say scienticians. » 12/26/11 12:55pm 12/26/11 12:55pm

Marshawn Lynch Likes Skittles, Eats Skittles, Gets Free Skittles

After Beast Mode went Beast Mode on the Eagles' sieve of a d-line, he retreated to his bench to taste the rainbow. This is nothing new for Lynch, whose sweet tooth grill goes back to his Bills days. His mother still buys him a pack before every game, and he talks about Skittles in the huddle. » 12/02/11 2:35pm 12/02/11 2:35pm

Oklahoma State Takes A Page From Pee Wee Football

The Cowboys' new focus on defense includes rewarding players for turnovers with Snickers and Butterfinger bars, probably from a fun-size bag bought for $2.99 at a Stillwater Otasco. [AP] » 9/27/10 4:45pm 9/27/10 4:45pm

Four Out Of Five Dentists Think Joe Girardi Is Nuts

Further proof that Joe Girardi is the Frank Burns of AL managers; he has forbidden the Yankees to eat candy or gum. Yes, that should turn the tide. New York would have four or five more World Series trophies if not for the evil of Skittles. Girardi is being really strict about this. » 4/22/08 5:45pm 4/22/08 5:45pm
