GLENN

A Glenn Beck Tragedy in Chocolate

Hershey's or Cadbury chocolate? That is the question. While some may prefer the English-born Cadbury chocolate egg, Glenn is an all-American Hershey's man through and through. In fact, he's never even tried a Cadbury chocolate egg. Despite his co-hosts efforts (and in light of the strict diet he's following), Glenn refused the Cadbury chocolate confections during radio on Wednesday. Once a Hershey's man, always a Hershey's man.

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

STU: We discovered something tragic today in that Glenn Beck, who says he believes in American culture --

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

STU: -- for some reason has never tried a Cadbury cream egg, which seems impossible.

JEFFY: What!

PAT: Preposterous. It's preposterous.

GLENN: No. The cream sounds -- is this the one with the white and yellow in it?

STU: Yeah, the fake yolk inside.

PAT: Yeah, deliciousty. It's deliciousness.

JEFFY: The caramel one.

GLENN: No. No. That looks just gross.

STU: It's so good.

PAT: Oh, the caramel ones --

JEFFY: The caramel ones are the best.

GLENN: Yeah, the caramel --

PAT: We need to send whoever got these back for the caramel ones.

JEFFY: We should have asked for the caramel ones.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: First of all, I don't like Cadbury chocolate.

PAT: What! Oh, you are nuts.

GLENN: No. I know that you -- I know that you think I'm a low-class chocolate eater because I love Hershey's chocolate.

PAT: You love Hershey's.

STU: It's okay to love Hershey's chocolate. But also you would try other chocolates. This is a national treasure.

GLENN: Yeah, I would. I know. I'm not going to -- I got to get back to my strict diet. And I'm an all-or-nothing guy. If I break it here, I'll break it.

JEFFY: Glenn, Glenn.

STU: This is essentially an egg.

GLENN: No, it's not an egg.

JEFFY: This is for the show. This is for the show. You know how many diets I've lost and gone off of, thanks to these shows on this network?

GLENN: I know. You would be in a hospital. You would be anorexic if it wasn't for this show. I know, Jeffy.

PAT: Glenn, this is filled with protein. It's an egg. It's nothing, but protein.

GLENN: Okay. Open it up. That looks so gross.

STU: It's supposed to look like an egg, except it's really just sugary creamy goodness.

Okay. So we also have the Cadbury cream egg cookie. (?) I win $10,000.

JEFFY: Walmart salad.

GLENN: Did you hear about the Walmart salad with the bat in it?

PAT: That was done on purpose.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Had to be. But can you imagine -- can you imagine opening up a salad bag and having a bat in it?

PAT: No. I think I would take it back to the store.

GLENN: You think so?

PAT: I think so. I think so. I'm going out on a limb there, but I think I take it back to the store.

GLENN: So I would want to own the salad company.

PAT: Yeah. I'll tell you this --

STU: So they would give you some extra protein.

PAT: I tell you this, I would ask for my 1.97 back.

GLENN: Okay. So you find a spider in it. Okay. You're not going to -- a bat. How did you miss a bat?

PAT: That's weird.

JEFFY: I don't know. I might get a little upset about a spider too.

STU: Oh, my God, these Cadbury cream egg cookies are so delicious. Oh, my God.

JEFFY: They are so good. The eggs are great too. Glenn. Glenn.

STU: A little yolk coloring.

GLENN: Yeah, no, it looks like you're taking a fried egg and then dipped it in chocolate. That does not sound good.

STU: Ooh, we should try that next. That sounds delicious.
