It’s fair to say Dwayne Johnson’s meal habits are not that of the average person.

For example, the former WWE star, also known as The Rock, has previously revealed he eats 36oz cod a day and, perhaps even more shockingly, hasn’t eaten any sweets for 27 years.

Yes, earlier this year Johnson told his 55.9million Instagram followers he hadn’t eaten sweets since he ate a pack of Twizzlers in a cinema in 1989.

Appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, the talk show host said he wanted to “make a little history” and asked the 44-year-old to eat sweets on the show.

Johnson tried popping candy, which he enjoyed, afterwards saying: “So that’s what candy tastes like? Wow it's amazing.”

The Fast and Furious actor previously told Muscle and Fitness magazine he eats seven meals a day, four of which contain cod. The meal plan also involves eating 12 eggs and six cups of white rice a day.
