A woman thought trying the ‘world’s sourest candy’ called ‘black death,’ and filming her reaction would be interesting. She, however, didn’t expect what would happen next. The candy caused a strong physical reaction, making her scream in discomfort. A video documenting her experience has quickly gone viral on Instagram, amassing millions of views and a flurry of comments.
“Black death,” reads the caption to the video shared on Instagram by a user who goes by Underrated Hijabi. The video opens to show the woman introducing ‘black death’ to the viewers. She then reads the warning on the packet that says it is not suitable for children below the age of 8 years. As the video progresses, she tries one of the candy balls. What happens next is nothing short of scary.
The woman experienced an alarming reaction that included unusual movements and screams. She describes feeling like ‘there’s a metal rod’ at the back of her throat.
She doesn’t stop here and tries another candy ball from the packet, only to have a similar experience. This time, she spits out the ball in her hand.
