Transcription

  • (upbeat music)
  • - [Andrew] Ah!
  • - Worth It One Stop.
  • - We're in Nagoya, Japan!
  • And that is the Nagoya Castle.
  • It's actually lit right now,
  • and we're with my best friend, Rie McClenny.
  • - Hi! - I think it works like this,
  • she's your best friend but I'm her best friend.
  • - Ooh, that one hurt!
  • And you're here with us because we're doing an awesome,
  • spectacular episode on custom Japanese candy.
  • - We call it Kintarō-ame.
  • Kintarō is Japanese folktale character.
  • Traditionally, the candy has Kintarō face on it.
  • - The process is extremely satisfying,
  • that's what really what we're here for.
  • - Not too many spoilers, but we do have a very
  • special design, we're not gonna give it away right now.
  • - That's right, you're not gonna see Kintarō on our candy,
  • you're gonna see somebody else.
  • - Oh man, the wind is crazy, also
  • there are crows caw-cowing.
  • What do they say in Japanese?
  • - Caw-caw.
  • - So, we have some caw-caw and some
  • whoosh-whoosh (Rie laughs) going on right now.
  • - Let's do it.
  • - Alright, let's do it!
  • - [Passerby] Am I in the frame? (upbeat guitar lick)
  • - We sent in our own design to
  • make our special custom candy.
  • Spoiler alert, the design is of
  • our co-producer, Adam Bianchi.
  • - We thought it would be a good design because there's
  • lots of complications (others laugh) about his face.
  • You know, you have this facial hair here, the glasses.
  • (quick drum rhythm)
  • - So how do you make the candy?
  • - How is each part of Adam's face made?
  • - So what are you doing to help make these shapes
  • and keep everything even during the process?
  • - Oh!
  • I think I messed up already. - Oh no, oh no!
  • - Oh no, this is gonna be a very
  • ugly version of Adam, I'm sorry!
  • Can I cut?
  • (chuckles)
  • - [Rie] So, do you want to do it, Andrew?
  • - [Andrew] Sure.
  • (candy snaps)
  • Ooh!
  • Ah!
  • (concerned gasps)
  • - [Rie] He almost lost a finger!
  • - [Steven] I noticed that there's a lot of people
  • working together on this, what's the
  • importance of doing everything by hand?
  • - We got some candy.
  • - So not only did we see the candy get made,
  • we got to get our hands in the mix.
  • - Yeah...
  • And we did not do a good job.
  • - We did probably the least challenging part.
  • - [Steven] Yes!
  • - So we just lived this moment,
  • but I wanted to call your attention again...
  • - Oh man!
  • - To that.
  • It's weird because Adam is holding
  • the camera and filming me show him this.
  • It's very hard, like this could be a murder weapon in Clue.
  • And then it tapers off into this
  • little tail end where you get...
  • (Steven laughs)
  • Candy Adam.
  • - Rie, what do you think about this?
  • (laughs)
  • - Rokurokubi.
  • - Rokurokubi.
  • Adam, Adam Bianchi.
  • (laughs)
  • Like the level of sculpture happening here
  • is really amazing.
  • - Let's pull out the candy.
  • - I'm gonna put this away cause I...
  • - Please.
  • - It's too much to look at.
  • - We should bring out the ones we made first, right?
  • - Sure, yeah.
  • - Just to be clear we made 50 pounds of candy.
  • - About 35 hundred pieces of Adam.
  • - I believe these are the ones that we made (wheezes)
  • and I just looked at this for the first time!
  • This is like if you took Adam and put my hair on him.
  • - Yours are too thin and then some of mine were too thick
  • so when we got in the rolling machine,
  • the edge of it just sliced across his face.
  • (plastic crinkling)
  • Look at that guy.
  • It looks like you're about to go into a time warp,
  • and you've like frozen and then your
  • body starts swirling in space.
  • - Hey, some of them are pretty good though.
  • If you pick one out at random, okay,
  • it's gonna be awesome, watch this.
  • Watch... (strained mumble)
  • Alright, you ready?
  • - Yeah this isn't the 50 pounds, there's many boxes of this.
  • - Oh man!
  • - So because these one's are good to go,
  • they're actually individually-wrapped which is great.
  • Oh yeah, he's much chunkier in the right-sized one,
  • he's got a much chubbier face, which I like.
  • - I think the word is, uh, chiseled.
  • - Look at that one, that's a good Adam.
  • I mean, it really looks hand-painted, right?
  • With, like, a single hair paintbrush.
  • Alright, I'm gonna eat this now, cheers.
  • (chewing)
  • Did you chew it immediately?
  • - Oh wait... (chuckles) how do you eat it?
  • - It's a hard candy, Steven!
  • Great flavor, tea smell. - Mhm.
  • What I like about it is that it's also not insanely sweet
  • which was what I was expecting when I saw them make it.
  • No.
  • - Was it right side up?
  • (laughs)
  • - How about me?
  • (laughs)
  • - Ew!
  • - The light outline around his ears
  • is potentially the most present to me.
  • - The different portions of his
  • face dissolve at different rates.
  • Pretty soon you can feel this texture
  • of his face against your tongue.
  • And I'll have like, the little bumps of the outline
  • of the eyes, yeah I'm licking his eyes right now.
  • - You're making it really weird.
  • - Yeah it was just surprising how good this candy turns out.
  • - What's that supposed to mean?
  • (laughs)
  • (delicate piano music)
  • - [Andrew] Oh yes!
