Ryan Gosling really, really loves candy

In a new interview with Esquire, "Crazy, Stupid, Love" star Ryan Gosling reveals just how young-at-heart he really is, proclaiming his extreme love of sugary treats.

"Sometimes I think that the one thing I love most about being an adult is the right to buy candy whenever and wherever I want," Gosling, 30, reveals.

His favorite candy? Hi-Chews, which he scours New York City to find, stopping in at five different bodegas during his interview.

“It’s the candy that never quits on you,” he explains of the fruity chews. “This candy is always worth the price. There used to be a candy called Bonkers, which I believe to be the greatest candy of all time.”

He also mentions he loves multi-colored Haribos. Eventually, the star buys Nerds, Kazoozles, green apple and grape Hi-Chews to satiate his sweet tooth. “Sugar till you die,” he tells the reporter.

    I would be willing to bend over, spread my cheeks and let Mr Gosling have all the milk dudes he could swallow.

    I used to like marathon bars, don't know if they're still around...?

      I remember Marathon bars, too! They were great – caramel and chocolate – and didn't they have a braided shape? So much good candy is gone. I loved Rally bars, too, and Sprint bars – they were like today's KitKats only WAY better.

      Marathon bars were the best – they aren't around anymore, but Cadbury makes the CurlyWurly bar that is just about the same thing...Google it.
