Over the past two-plus decades, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has done it all in the world. He played football for the Miami Hurricanes, became the WWE Champion eight times and is now the biggest box office draw in Hollywood.
One thing he apparently hasn’t done in that time? Eat candy.
Now you would think that with all the things The Rock has been cooking over the years that the jabroni-beating, pie-eating People’s Champion would have indulged on a sugary sweet at some point. However, it looks to not be true, as The Rock says that the last piece of candy he had was all the way back in 1989: a Twizzler at a movie theater.
Well Jimmy Fallon set out to break that 27-year streak on the “Tonight Show” on Thursday night, tempting the Great One with treats such as Twizzlers, Ring Pops and Pop Rocks.
Oh, and a giant gummy worm that clearly didn’t look like a gummy worm. Keep it behind the desk, Jimmy.
The Rock finally gets to work with the Pop Rocks, and it looks like he has a good time with them. However, at the end of the day, it looks like The Rock still has his eyes on that gummy worm.
Doesn’t look like he will make it another 27 years without candy.
