Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Warheads | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit


  • i like sour.. i dont like this prickling feeling that pop rocks have

  • “do i wanna try them?” “no.” gabby is so wholesome

  • my mouth is watering bruh

  • Anyone remember shockers?

  • She called it an AirHead

  • It still has citric acid in the middle

  • How old is she, she looks really young facially but her hair throws me off

  • I love how their calendar says "It's gonna be o.k" lmao

  • I don’t like warheads but I like the Ukrainian version, I think it’s called mr fizzy and it’s basically the opposite. It’s a hard candy but has a pocket on the inside that is filled with the citric acid stuff

  • My childhood 😍

  • Personally, I'm obsessed with warheads when you get to the core. It's the perfect amount of sour and sweet. Though, fairly unsure how they get that but of sour in the core of the sweet lozenge. Love this episode already

  • Am I the only one who double taps through the "reading the ingredients" part? Just me? Kthnxbai

  • I absolutely love sour things I can eat a lemon raw soooo yummy

  • I'd buy them

  • These are nothing. When I was a kid we had gumballs called tear jerkers. We would get sores in our mouth.

  • All the food editors: Blehhh Me who eats 3 toxic wastes a day without flinching: BRUUHHHH

  • I agree with that guy, like em but I also wish they were sour the whole time. I love sour

  • You should make air heads

  • Toxic Waste is a whole other thing

  • my mouth was watering when they were eating the original ones

  • @Bon Appétit , make sour ice breakers

  • Andy eating that warhead is like me in the hospital when the morphine hits

  • My son ate 13 lemon warheads at once....buttercups😂

  • I remember Warheads having a bubble in the center that had a liiittle powder! My friends and I would divide a bag and compete over who could eat the most. Our tongues were bleeding one time because we bought Cry Baby gum and threw into the mix too!🤣🤯

  • Should have thrown them in the rock tumbler

  • 15:58 AirHead?

  • They are the best sour candy what's wrong with y'all

  • ok but can we talk about claire's red sweatsuit look?? i am loving it. with the gold necklace for an accent?? pulls the whole thing together. transforms it. gorgeous. stunning.

  • i love how claire takes cosmo's input seriously like. that's so great and she's so sweet :')

  • Me: Clicks on video Gaby: Tries the warhead Me: mouth waters

  • @0:21 Claire in her all red outfit is on fire! 🔥 love that on her ❤️

  • it’s always so funny when you start watching an episode thinking ‘oh she has totally got this one in the bag’ and then see it’s a 40 minute video

  • 12:18 I do.

  • Warheads are amazing.

  • The center fizzles like pop rocks

  • claire taking pepto is me taking shots with pushy friends

  • *the amount of saliva my mouth is producing could run a fountain. actually 2 fountains!*

  • they really aren't as sour as they used to be tbh.

  • There used to be a sort of chewy center back in the day but now it’s just solid. I guess they done away with it because it didn’t make a difference with how little the core was.

  • 5:07 its cause shes chewing it..if you dont suck on it and chew it instead then it isnt very sour at all as the outer layer is where the sour coating is so if you chew it up and get to the sweet inside you dont taste much of the sourness/ he gets overpowered by the sweet

  • They for sure have a center. Only the center isnt like that. It's a tiny tiny tiny hole filled with like powdered citric acid. I was never sure that it really truly was meant to have that or if I was imagining it and it was just really broken candy when I bit it. It's nice to feel validated lol.

  • 16:00 AIRHEAD?????

  • So cool

  • I used to love those back around 5th grade. The last time I had one it didn't seem as sour as I remembered them being when I was a kid.

  • Clair: I think I'm going to finish tomorrow Me, seeing that the video is less than half way: oh honey

  • The end result looks like those candies off Jimmy neutron

  • who doesnt like the taste of pepto? i used to just drink that shite lmao

  • I think she enjoys punching people lol

  • 28:30 Claire: Is it giving you a chemical burn? delaney: no claire: (clearly disappointed) oh..

  • claire casually making the jimmy neutron candies

  • Zotz are better

  • I'd like to meet the father who raised a ~10 year old with pierced ears and girly earrings.

  • You made Napoleon bonbons!

  • This is giving me PTSD

  • you know what cosmo should try some hidrocloric acid if nothing is too sour

  • my mouth was watering the whole time

  • Oh hey, malic acid, Mythical chef Josh's favourite!


  • 6:31 That's what she said.

  • Claire making warheads- Watchers- **mouths watering**
