Now with 10% more inherent vileness

A little mysterious, but funny -- it's the USA-Japan Taste Battle.

The most wrong item featured in the battle is clearly the buttered-popcorn flavor Mike and Ike candy. I mean, yes, Jelly Belly offers popcorn-flavored jellybeans, but I only ever encounter those in variety packs. Like, you get one or two popcorn jellybeans out of sixty or whatever. You have one, you say, "Whoa! That kinda tastes like buttered popcorn! Now please let me have something more normal," and then you eat something that tastes like something candy should taste like. A whole box of that? Ew and double ew.
