    Brad is such a misogynist. Eurgh. He needs to elevate Claire instead of making fun of her. So sexist.

    I bet Skittles are made with granulation that is compressed in a tablet press and then coated in a tablet coater. Industrial Pharmaceuticals are made the same way.

    I absolutely love the trend of Brad saying/doing something crazy or dumb-sounding, claire swearing it won't work or it's not a thing, and then Brad's method is the one that works in the end 😂

      Samantha Bednar i think that they’re fine and the only reason people don’t like them is that they’re afraid of change and aren’t ready to admit it

    I can’t eat Skittles because they rip the roof of my mouth raw, and I don’t realize it until I’ve eaten half the bag, then I remember why I can’t eat Skittles, until I forget again.. it’s a vicious cycle. But I can say without a doubt; I know what the rainbow tastes like: Softened pumice.. fruity tangy sweet delicious eerily softened palate-sanding pumice. -Phill, Las Vegas

    I ate skittles Religiously in high school around 1998-2002 and not so much until recently. I didn’t know they changed lime until I watched this, and now I understand why they had a funky taste. They are really gross and tart when you pop a handful.
