You may not be able to smell what The Rock is cooking in the following clip, but many of us have tasted what he’s eating.

As you might already know, Dwayne Johnson’s diet is the stuff of Internet legend.

The man basically lives on a diet of cod, baked chicken and artfully cocked eyebrows.

Obviously, that doesn’t leave a lot of room for empty calories, such as – well, most of the crap the rest of slobs eat.

But hey, maintaining the physique of a Greek god at 44 while still making time to save drowning puppies isn’t easy.

Not surprisingly, Johnson has had to make some serious sacrifices over the years.

And it seems one of the first things to get 86’ed from his diet when he decided to become the closest thing to flawless that mankind has ever achieved was candy.

We don’t mean Dwayne only indulges in candy on cheat days, or even on holidays.

We mean the man flat-out eats no sugary treats at all.

In fact, during his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, Johnson confirmed the rumor that he hasn’t eaten candy in 27 years.

That streak came to an end last night when Fallon offered Johnson a wide array of ways to fall off the wagon.

Perhaps not surprisingly, Johnson chose Pop Rocks.

And he was not disappointed.

“So that’s what candy tastes like,” Johnson said. “It’s amazing.”

Amazing, indeed.
