Candy Is Delicious

A short documentary by half the cast of Parks and Recreation.

We sent a box of candy to Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza, and Rashida Jones of Parks and Recreation. They sent back this video.

And thus begins CANDY DAY on Rookie. Enjoy! P.S. Candy is delicious, and it will always be delicious.

Parks and Recreation airs on NBC on Thursday nights at 8:30e/7:30c.

    I already like the show and these actresses. The fact that they took the time to respond to the random assortment of candy that you sent with a video just makes me appreciate them more.

    “it tastes like spider babies are being born in my mouth”. PERFECT.

    I need more people with opinions like that in my life.

  • jinkies October 7th, 2011 10:55 PM

    I totally thought one of them would choose the candy bar that’s “not for girls”! These girls are so cute and I have been meaning to watch this show for a while now.

  • leraje October 8th, 2011 4:50 AM

    aubrey stuffed her bra with that kleenex after using it. i am in love.

  • natasha October 9th, 2011 4:42 PM

    DUDE THAT BREATHING or nose whistling or whatever that was.. it freaked me out. I was getting goosebumps allllll over and my toenails were starting to role back into my feet.
    I can’t deal with that creepy sound. I’m seriously still shuddering.

    But I do agree though that Candy Is Delicious, even though I saw very little of the video. CANDY.

  • Sunnh October 10th, 2011 12:37 PM

    That’s awesome!
    (But how come guys always breathe so loudly?)

  • insteadofanelephant October 11th, 2011 7:59 PM

    instead of an elephant

  • sarahuatito October 15th, 2011 8:34 PM
