BAD TASTE with Jayme Kilsby: Episode 02 – X-Men Nerds Candy

Jayme Kilsby is at it again! I say that he’s “at it again” but what I really mean to say is that he’s “putting one foot in the grave by eating moldy, 22 year old candy.” That’s right, folks. Episode 2 of Bad Taste is here and I can already tell you that you’re not ready.

Watch Kilsby indulge himself on a double pack of X-Men Nerds candies from 1994. Nerds are brought to us by Nestle, under The Willy Wonka Candy Company, and it’s rumored that the name of the beloved treat comes from the Dr. Seuss book “If I Ran the Zoo” after the narrator mentions that nerds are among the creatures he would want to collect in his zoo.

Nerds have a life expectancy of 24 months, which is the same lifespan of the Mosquitofish; a fish you probably didn’t know about until just now. 22 years is quite the jump from 24 months but lucky for us, Kilsby has a stomach of steel and a heart of gold.

Jamie Kilsby, a self-proclaimed pop culture archeologist, stars in Bad Taste, a web series that pits one 27-year-old man against a variety of expired candy from the 80s and the 90s. He does it so we don’t have to do it. He does it because he wants to do it. He’s doing it because he’s trying to chisel years off of his life.
