Nerd Lunch Podcast 27: Drill Down – Candy!

It’s our first cavity inducing episode. Well, maybe our second cavity inducing episode after Episode 19 about sodas. Anyway, Jason Liebig from occupies the fourth chair for a discussion of all things candy. We learn about Jason’s collection/obsession, talk over some of our favorite candies, and eventually find our nougaty center. This week’s Nerd To-dos include a nerd’s quest to visit Popeye’s Chicken and a special story about hanging out with one of the Jimmy Olsens from Lois & Clark.

    The PB Max crossed my mind, but I hardly remember the candy itself, but rather the marketing campaign.

    Jason has appeared a few times on another podc…er…internet radio show called "The Action Room." They did not distribute through iTunes, but I think their episodes are still out there.

    And if you want to see Jason, check out this video.

    Awesome episode guys! Was glad to finally hear what Jason sounds like…I've been internet/Flickr friends with him for a while but never actually have spoken with him. Loved the talk about favorite discontinued candy – I was screaming at my iPod "PBMax! It's the PBMax!" If I could have one wish, and only one wish, it wouldn't be to bring back the PBMax, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't cross my mind.

    The banana kit kat was great but didn't last long for some reason. It was around the time when they were putting 'orange' into everything too. I didn't like that fad. Pretty sure they did an orange kit kat too. Not good.

    Wait a minute, there was a Banana Kit Kat? I LOVE that fake banana flavor used in candy and flavored milk, so I'm sure I would have been head over heels for that thing.

    Great episode guys. My candy thoughts:

    Favourite Chocolate Bars: Mars With Almonds, Reese Peanut Butter Cups, Mint Aero, Hershey Cookies & Cream

    Discontinued Bars I love: Choclairs, White Chocolate Reese Peanut Butter Cups, Banana Kit Kat

    Little Candies I love: Runts, Zingy Zaps, M&Ms Original and Almonds, Reeses Pieces, Gummie Bears

    After working night shifts sometimes on the drive home I'll eat Runts to give me a sugar high to help keep me awake for the drive.

    Jack, you're not wrong. But our pre-established "drill down" terminology mixed with the dentist gag (also not the best word choice) was just too good to pass up.

    Dudes… Was "Drill Down" the best mental picture to associate with this 'cast? Just sayin'…
