  • "I feel sorry for you guys!" Brithsh YouTube star Deji Olatunji was thoroughly disgusted with Icelandic candy. Photo/Screenshots from video, see below.

Last week the british youtube star, Deji Olatunji, who runs the YouTube channel ComedyShortsGamer, posted a video of himself tasting Icelandic candy. Some Icelander had sent Deji a box of selected chocolates and a bags of potato chips for him to sample. To make a long story short, Deji, who has more than six million subscribers, was less than impressed with Icelandic sweets.

In an expletive filled and high-pitched review of Icelandic candy Deji declared it was “the worst candy [he had] ever tasted”. He was particularly annoyed with the “black stuff” and “black sh*t” he kept finding inside the candy, asking whether this was “the main candy ingredient” in Iceland.
