Partial Transcript: Episode 76 (Candy)
Nick: What’s everyone’s favorite candy?
Virginia: The one that I’m eating.
Andrew: Which is?
Virginia: Well, technically I have a potpourri of candy. I’m eating Sour Patch Kids right now. I was eating Butterfinger before that. And I’m drinking a Shiner.
Nick: We can’t advocate for any brand.
Andrew: They could pay us.
Virginia: We could tweet them.
Andrew: My favorite candy is Peach Rings.
Nick: Ugh. Old lady candy.
Virginia: I love Peach Rings. But, you asked for Skittles last week, and I lost some respect for you.
Andrew: I’m not going to eat a whole bag of Skittles.
Nick: Warm Skittles are really good.
Andrew: Skittles vodka are delicious.
Virginia: We did it with Jolly Ranchers.
Andrew: We tried that too, and it came out really good. The watermelon and the cherry were the best.
Virginia: In high school, when we would drink illegally, we would take Zimas…
Nick: I remember those. It took like 40 to get a buzz, even as a kid.
Virginia: For you. My one was more than enough.
Nick: You got buzzed off Zima?
Andrew: It was a sugar high.
Virginia: Anyway, you’d put a Jolly Rancher in it, and it’s taste like that. I was so sad when they discontinued it.
Nick: When I was a kid, there was a convenience store that would sell Zima to minors.
Virginia: Were they stupid?
Nick: They knew it was alcohol. They were just trying to move it. Every kid knew that it was for sale.
Andrew: So, what’s your favorite candy?
Nick: The gummy raspberries with sugar dots on it.
Andrew: I don’t know if I’ve ever had that.
Nick: They’re like Dots.
Andrew: Never had them.
Virginia: They’re the bane of any Halloween bag’s existence.
Andrew: The worst Halloween candy is Tootsie Rolls.
Nick: Yes. They are horrible.
Virginia: They get left behind. Towards the end, you’re happy to see them because they’re all that are left behind.
Nick: I can top that: vanilla Tootsie Rolls.
Virginia: Yeah. The special flavors are bad.
Nick: You not only bought the worst candy, but you got the multiflavored variety.
Andrew: Mom used to buy Tootsie Rolls for Halloween, and the kids would never come there. I was walking home one night, and a kid said, “Don’t go to that house. That’s the Tootsie Roll House.”
