Israeli chocolate makes sweet appearance on 'Good Mythical Morning'
Rhett and Link join Jimmy Fallon in their newfound love of pop rock candy from the Mediterranean country.
There are doctors, lawyers, plumbers and technicians. And then there are people who make a living doing fun antics online. If you haven't already, meet Rhett and Link. They are the popular hosts of a daily talk show on YouTube called "Good Mythical Morning" where they discuss everything from the best TV theme song to weird ways to open a bottle. Since they launched the show, their videos have accumulated a jaw-dropping 3.5 billion views.
Which brings us to this week, when they posted an episode called "International Candy Taste Test." In the 15-minute clip, they're given candy without the wrapper and try to ascertain that treat's country of origin. They taste sweets from all over the globe – including Finland, South Africa and Mexico. About halfway through the episode, they're given a piece of candy from Israel. Watch what happened next:
The chocolate bar – which includes a Pop Rocks feature that tickles your mouth – is produced by Elite, Israel's top selling candy brand. It's from the same company and very similar to the Pop Rocks chocolate bar that Israeli actress Gal Gadot introduced to Jimmy Fallon on a "Tonight Show" episode earlier this month.
Both bars are available in America at various Mediterranean grocery stores as well as on Amazon. The candy is one of many Israeli snacks – including Bamba and Krembo – that have become popular in the U.S. in recent years.
As of this morning, Rhett and Link's video has more than 1.2 million views. And with Halloween and trick or treating right around the corner, that number is likely to grow in the coming days.
