Snoop Dogg found out how candy canes are made, and he did not like it (video below).
On a hilarious "Jimmy Kimmel Live" segment called "Howz It Mizzade," the Doggfather watches footage from a mysterious factory while trying to figure out what type of spooky food he is looking at.
"It's something that's not edible," Snoop guesses on the parody of the Science Channel's "How It's Made" show. "I don't like it. Nobody's going to buy these."
In his defense, it does look pretty gnarly at the beginning, where we see factory workers dump a hot, golden pulsating waxy clump from a vat onto a workstation. Snoop's description of the liquid mixture as "hot bumble bee pee" is pretty accurate, we have to say.
"Ugh," he says. "It looks like the Blob. Remember that movie, 'The Blob?'"
At one point, Snoop speculates that they are making something he has smoked before. Cannabis wax?
"It looks like throw-up," he adds, as the footage shows workers and machines continuing to stretch and knead the mixture, which is gradually becoming lighter in color.
What he is actually looking at is a mixture of sugar and corn syrup, plus a bit of flavoring and color. If you've ever made hard candy, caramel or toffee, you might recognize the horrifying hot blob of melted sugar. But, as far as we can tell, he has never made candy before, not even with best buddy Martha Stewart.
In the video, workers roll the heavy, solidifying mixture into a thick log, and, in what we can only imagine is a desperate bid to have the plasticky item not be something that he has eaten before, the rapper guesses that they are making a Frisbee.
But then the workers stick long bits of a red taffy-looking thing onto the white hunk and put it through a machine that stretches and rolls it into a long, thin cord before cutting it every few inches.
"Oh!" Snoop exclaims, with simultaneous jubilance and horror, realizing that it is the festive holiday peppermint-flavored candy.
"I'm never eating a candy cane again, cuz," he says. "That was bullsh** right there. F*ck that. That was a candy cane?"
