WATCH: Mindy Kaling's strange addiction

Mindy spends the next three minutes talking about her favorite candy being Australian red licorice, specifically the Australian one because "regular old red licorice, detest!"

She then acquires four brands of the licorice candy, explaining each one to viewers, even reading about where they were made (spoiler alert: one of them was made in Perham, Minnesota, so not a true Australian).

She delivers a taste test on each of the candies and then ranks them all at the end, comparing them based on taste and look.

This is not the first of the actress' hilarious Instagram food content

Throughout the video, she has a running bit where she compares the licorice to the Hemsworth brothers, saying that choosing a favorite there is like choosing a favorite Hemsworth brother (revealing that her favorite is Liam).

Her video already has fans in stitches, who can't help but love the fact that the Mindy Project star made an entire video about Australian red licorice candy.

"The coolest person on Instagram. Licorice review video," one wrote, with several laughing emojis. Another agreed with her, commenting, "Yassss! American licorice taste like sweetened rubber compared to Australian."

Some of them even gave recommendations for different kinds of licorice she could try and where she could find them, including Trader Joes.
