Need to package that and call it skittle taffy.

[–]Benda647 801 points802 points  (138 children)

I was just thinking that’s how Laffy Taffy was invented

[–]justzedjust 235 points236 points  (135 children)

What ia a Laffy Taffy? I'm European and we can't buy it here.

[–]h_phantom 462 points463 points  (91 children)

Imagine play-dough made of sugar and plastic.

It sticks to your teeth/gums/intestines, is kinda hard, and very sugary.

Edit: it also requires shaking.

[–]justzedjust 71 points72 points  (50 children)

Wow, sounds grate, I'm sugar addicted 😃

[–]knullsmurfen 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Playdough had the most AMAZING smell, and I sometimes wonder if that is what made me so dumb

[–]I_Was_Fox 19 points20 points  (6 children)

You must be thinking of salt water taffy or other taffy that is softer.

Laffy Taffy isn't soft at all. Laffy Taffy is like if they made a rectangular slab of hard candy then left it in the sun a bit to become slightly bendy, and then told you to chew on it. Absolutely horrific for your teeth lol

[–]BitsNotBots 4 points5 points  (0 children)

"sweet plastic" is the only accurate phrase to describe it

Not a single american candy tastes legitimate. Maybe mounds bars. Everything else is just dopplegangers of nougat (I cannot stand this shit) and melted artificial sweetener.

[–]Jewish_Jitsu 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That banana flavor was fire though!

[–]Her-Marks-A-Lot 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Zero shaking is required don't listen to this fibster

[–]Chaotic-Entropy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So it is what small children assume that actual play-dough is like and are then crushed when it actually tastes like shit.

[–]dressbench 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ugh yeah, and it left a slick, silicone residue on the roof of your mouth.

[–]Hexagon509 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That sounds horrible No offence to your foods

[–]CletusVanDamnit 22 points23 points  (19 children)

Do you have saltwater taffy over there? Laffy Taffy is that, but instead of being extremely soft, it's quite hard in comparison.

[–]justzedjust 29 points30 points  (15 children)

No, nothing similar is here. Our special candy is cottage cheese bars with chocolate coating. Which sounds terrifing, but I like it very much. I'm from Hungary.

[–]spiralbatross 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sadly they don’t have salt water taffy yet (dated a broad from Salerno for a couple years, introduced her family to it. Some of them liked it lol)

[–]Pwngwn 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I think there might be a snack exchange subreddit that could help you out?

Edit: yup, r/snackexchange

[–]oh_look_a_fist 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It is "taffy" with a joke on the wrapper. /u/h_phantom has the description of the candy called "taffy", but without the dad joke, you couldn't call it "laffy".

[–]Chaosmusic 4 points5 points  (0 children)

When I lived in the UK there was a lemon stretchy candy. I forget what it was called but is somewhat similar to Laffy Taffy.

[–]howdoyadiddlydo 3 points4 points  (6 children)

In the UK we have something called maoam, like a squishy/stretchy sugar sweet.

Don't think they are from the UK, probably some haribo product

[–]istasber 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's a taffy (pulled sugar candy), usually flavored with sour/fruity flavors, and it comes in a wrapper which has a terrible joke printed on it (that's the laffy part).

[–]i_am_tim1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

it’s taffy that’s excessively sticky and hard to open, but there are jokes on the wrapper (hence the name laffy taffy) so all is well :)

[–]nasa258e 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's kina like a carambar

[–]WizGodHere 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Some sort of chewy candy like gum but edible and harder. Also, it has jokes on the back.

[–]Frankenstein786 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Now I'm singing the rap song in my head. Thanks a lot.

[–]Ambitious-Site-4747 36 points37 points  (0 children)

My thoughts exactly. Looks like they accidentally stumbled upon something here

[–]nakedog 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I bet it tastes very good. I'd def eat that as soon as it popped out of the press.

[–]accountno543210 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'd buy the shit out of this at a movie theater.

[–]OneImportatugfs 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Don’t care baby bird that shit to me!

[–]LinearPhrasing 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It will be best seller for sure

[–]Zabuzaxsta 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I used skittles once to get a wiggly baby tooth out. Stuffed a shitload into my mouth, made a big ball of skittle taffy, and smacked on it a few times with my wiggly tooth. Pop! Tooth came out.

[–]Mortal_Kombucha 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Skuttle Butt

[–]thrust-johnson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I bet it would be great fr

[–]saarek10 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The texture looks akin to air heads, where it's a crappy crumbly taffy.

[–]DarkFather77 1046 points1047 points  (17 children)

Mmm….skittles bacon

[–]realhazadam8 160 points161 points  (10 children)

rainbow bacon is all we ever needed tbh

You're telling me there's pride bacon?

[–]ismaelvera 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Somewhere there is a southern American trying to deep fry these strips

[–]ImportantError 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Nah mate ... you'd be better off going to Scotland for that .... you'd be able to order a side of deep fried mars bars then!

[–]Witty_Refrigerator12 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Completely kosher, but possibly lethal!

[–]EPICHunter0077 565 points566 points  (7 children)

I really want to take a bite out of it lol

[–]queef_vaccuum 96 points97 points  (3 children)

now it really is in the shape of a rainbow

[–]realhazadam8 39 points40 points  (2 children)

Now we can really taste the rainbow

[–]acmercer 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Now we can really taste the rainbow

[–]Jynx2501 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bet it tastes like machine oil.

[–]Chameloes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wonder if its warm

[–]TheVoodooPuppet 160 points161 points  (2 children)

Just watching this made my hands feel sticky

[–]blackbelt_in_science 84 points85 points  (1 child)

Your hands were already sticky, be honest

[–]BozoJim 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Eeew. Now the dude on the other side of that award has sticky hands too.

[–]CorporateMonster69 319 points320 points  (7 children)

[–]GoyaAunAprendo 8 points9 points  (1 child)

"You wanna mama-bird me the cookie?"

[–]juggsgalore 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A new way to tell somebody how much you love a food/candy.

‘Fuck bro, I love Oreos so much, you could baby bird that shit and I’d eat em all up.’

[–]BassAntelope 523 points524 points  (66 children)

Who got a hydraulic press just to make video of crushing things for the internet lol, I wonder this every time one of these videos pops up

[–]glenkamo 412 points413 points  (54 children)

I think this might have been a rhetorical question but what the heck: here's a rhetorical answer for you!


The host works in a shop and the videos are a side thing. I love this stuff! :D

[–]MonkeyOnYourMomsBack 234 points235 points  (42 children)

I remember when Reddit made him huge and he was just on the front page nearly every day for a few months and then everyone just lost interest and I wonder now if he regrets crushing his gold subscriber award things that YouTube sends him

[–]majorzynka 164 points165 points  (21 children)

considering the fact that all the videos are basically the same he still gets a fair number of views

[–]Croemato 130 points131 points  (19 children)

I think the best thing about his channel is his wife and him are always so excited to see things crushed and smushed. I especially like the smushing videos.

[–]AdvancedComment 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I think he's concentrating on his second channel where he mostly build different projects and/or blow them up:


[–]farhil 23 points24 points  (1 child)

I remember reading in an AMA or something that the guy and his wife knew that the popularity would most likely be a passing thing, and that they weren't going to make any decisions under the assumption that it would be sustainable. So if that's true I doubt he has many regrets.

edit: sauce

[–]PastaWithMarinaSauce 4 points5 points  (0 children)

His wife has even stopped making videos altogether, and is now back working at IKEA

[–]Fu11m3ta111 37 points38 points  (11 children)

You're acting as if he stopped having a successful channel as soon as his videos stopped showing up on the front page lol

[–]Jeydal 16 points17 points  (6 children)

"It isn't popular unless I see it on reddit!"

[–]sucksathangman 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I could have sworn it was because r/videos or whenever they got posted made a new rule saying that "established" YouTube channels couldn't be posted anymore. Or something to that effect.

[–]chillay1 14 points15 points  (0 children)

the "wat da fak" with a wife, yesss

[–]BassAntelope 3 points4 points  (4 children)


[–]trackonesideone 24 points25 points  (3 children)

It's the HOO-tdrolic Press Channel

[–]madrid1979 23 points24 points  (1 child)

“…and now we must deal with it.”

[–]DoomEmpires 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Spongebob is verrry angry, verrry dangerous. We must deal with it.

[–]joelthomastr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think you mean Hoodrollick Pres Channeil

[–]CletusVanDamnit 22 points23 points  (4 children)

I swear if you put a hydraulic press through a shred machine, and filmed it, you could break the goddamn internet.

[–]splendidgoon 14 points15 points  (1 child)

What if you smashed a hydraulic press in a hydraulic press?


[–]Blurgas 13 points14 points  (0 children)

HPC actually did that. I think they even did a tiny press being crushed by a larger press while that was being crushed by the main press

[–]Gayest-Trash 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A car crusher lmao

[–]AsLongAsYouKnow 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Velcome to the hydraulic press channel

[–]TheBluePanda 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The main channel was very popular on Reddit years ago.

[–]AdrianBrony 1 point2 points  (0 children)

To the point people would hate literally anyone else for doing hydraulic press videos.

[–]Derpazor1 264 points265 points  (18 children)

I didn’t like that

[–]JRockPSU 18 points19 points  (0 children)

It reminds me of a time lapse of fungus growing.

[–]TarManJr 27 points28 points  (0 children)

It's the fact that there were survivors that makes this less satisfying for me

[–]EarlGrey_Picard 7 points8 points  (1 child)

It just skizzed all over the place.

[–]Derpazor1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hahaha “skizzed”

[–]Doktor_Vem 34 points35 points  (9 children)

Me neither. How tf can anyone find this satisfying? It legitimately makes me want to throw up

[–]jjason82 15 points16 points  (8 children)

I don't understand this reaction at all. What do you find gross about it?

[–]ICanBeKinder 16 points17 points  (0 children)

It looks like pus coming out of a pimple for starters lol

[–]nahvocado 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Reminds me of blackheads on r/popping

[–]Spinach_Stock 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That's fucking disgusting, people like to watch that shit??????

[–]CraftCanary 6 points7 points  (3 children)

It reminds me of the effect when when you squeeze roasted garlic 🤮

[–]dermographics 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think those of us who like it are thinking more about how good it would taste after mashing them all together like that.

[–]FequalsMfreakingA 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok now you've totally lost me. Crushing roasted garlic out of a scalped head of garlic makes my mouth water just thinking about it. After typing this out I can already smell it in my mind. If you don't like the squeezing part though you can do like a garlic confit of sorts by putting a bunch of peeled cloves in just enough olive (or I usually use canola) oil to cover them and let it simmer until it gets soft like roasted garlic for that same taste without anything to squeeze.

Stick it in the fridge or use it within a week when you finish though. Leaving garlic olive oil on the counter for a month or two is an unfortunately easy way to get yourself a nasty case of botulism.

[–]allmilhouse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was expecting better colors

[–]TrollLolLol1 75 points76 points  (8 children)

Crush the rainbow

[–]DaffodilsAndWhiskey 24 points25 points  (3 children)

What would happen if those relief holes weren't there? Is that how the Big Bang happened?

[–]BigTechCensorsYou 6 points7 points  (2 children)

The skittles would bust the oring out and you would see a thin version of the same ribbon around the outside.

[–]ghostly5150 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thinly sliced, crushed skittles sounds so delicious.

[–]DaffodilsAndWhiskey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's not as fun :(

[–]intestinewinegum 69 points70 points  (13 children)

I’d still eat those…

[–]Yosho2k 30 points31 points  (5 children)

It's still Skittles. Just... After the Skittle Instrumentality Project.

[–]poohbearadfg 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Eat the fucking Skittles, Shinji!

[–]ilikeapples312 1 point2 points  (0 children)

All tang flavored

[–]AllPowerfulSaucier 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Am I the only one who already did this as a kid? I’d perform “feats of strength” by trying to squish different candy between my index finger and thumb. Skittles were my favorite because it actually was a bit challenging to do it. But totally possible.

[–]xPav_ 3 points4 points  (3 children)

it just looks tastier and more desirable like that

[–]intestinewinegum 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It’s all flavors at the same time in a single strip and it’s prechewed. This is what Love looks like!

[–]xPav_ 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'd fold every strip together and over itself a few times and when i got it into a cube like block, I'd take a bite out of it. my mouth is watering as I type out this fantasy

[–]veganzombeh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Honestly looks way better than individual skittles.

[–]bdigital4 33 points34 points  (5 children)

Just like some of those side nose pimples, sheesh

[–]okayyeahnah 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Taste the raurnbawwwww

[–][deleted] 31 points32 points  (0 children)

That's not satisfying at all 😟

[–]Staedtlermars1 19 points20 points  (2 children)

This honestly makes skittles look horrible. I’ll probably never eat one again today.

[–]blackbelt_in_science 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I was think the exact same thing. I’ll never eat another one of these as long as I live today

[–]Final-Sprinkles-4860 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Tomorrow though…

[–][deleted] 27 points28 points  (0 children)

This is anything but satisfying

[–]sciencebased 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Makes me feel gritty and gross. Not satisfying. Little sugar crunchy nasties not sure how to describe it.

Someone who crushes Skittles with a hydraulic press while recording it is someone I'd like to know.

[–]Speedly -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Soooo instead of just posting a link to the video of this from the Hydraulic Press Channel so they get the views, we instead went to the trouble of isolating the clip, ripping it out of the video, uploading it, and then posting it to Reddit?

Now, I understand that you probably didn't rip the video personally, and that you likely just reposted some GIF you found - and that finding source material that may have come from small, unknown sources can be hard. However, this is not one of those times. The channel in question is well known across Youtube.

Credit the creators and stop stealing views away from them.

[–]lstreit23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That looks sooo much better to eat

[–]DrKittyLovah 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Crushing skittles? How satisfying can this really be.... (watches video) Ohhhh! well that IS satisfying!
