Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson eats more than two pounds of cod per day for his insane diet, and, unsurprisingly, candy is never a factor.
During an appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s “The Tonight Show” on Thursday, Johnson told Fallon that he hadn’t eaten a piece of candy since 1989. It was a Twizzler, and he was at a movie theater.
Knowing this, Fallon tempted Johnson to “make a little history” and eat candy for the first time in 27 years.
“Well, look, I mean, we’re here. Big movie comes out tomorrow,” Johnson said. “I think we bust out the Twizzlers.”
Instead, Fallon attempted to lure Johnson with a giant gummy worm, a Nerd Rope, and Ring Pops before ultimately convincing The Rock to eat Pop Rocks and hold up a microphone so viewers could hear crackling.
“So that’s what candy tastes like! Wow, it’s amazing,” Johnson said.
