WTF – SUPER DICKMANN!

December 13, 2014

Oh man: we’ve been saving this for so long. We finished our European Trip well over a month ago, and we just kept this box in our fridge waiting for the day to review it. I don’t know why we didn’t film it right away, instead of waiting for Germany theme week for our WANKs and FAPFAPs, but it seemed befitting to film this at this time. Anyhow, that’s not the point. Point is this:

Super Dickmann. Super. Dick. Mannnnnn.

Yes, we were far too excited about this product, which isn’t really that great of a product. We just found the name insanely hilarious. Super Dickmann. You’re selling a treat called Super Dickmann. It’s so…so great!

We found this in Germany, and it brought about a very important discussion. Europe is generally a lot more liberal when it comes to sexuality in the media. You can see boobies and nipples, for example, while in media in Canada and the US, you can’t see that at all. It’s wrong!!!!!!! Murdering people gruesomely on TV and seeing blood splatter everywhere is totally acceptable, but heaven forbid someone expose an areola. People will in their lives see lots of nipples, but they will more than likely never see someone murdered. Man, censorship is so silly sometimes.

The point is, Europe doesn’t really ascribe to this silliness as much, I don’t think, and we got to thinking about that because of this product, Super Dickmann. Thank you, silly name, for making us rethink what’s important in life.

Also, check out these commercials we found for Super Dickmann. ZUPER DICKMANNNNN. Holy smokes. I’m so entertained by all of this. Yes, we’re far too old to be laughing at this, but that won’t stop us.

German people: please explain what this Dickmann is all about. Why is it called that. Does Dickmann have another meaning in your language, some other joke, perhaps? Maybe it’s clever wordplay? Something: there’s gotta be something here that’ll make sense of it for me.

    We have those in Portugal as well, we call them “Bombocas” which doesn’t mean anything but always sounded to me like a variation of the word Bombom (chocolate).

  5. Oh wow, can’t believe that you guys have found those. I haven;t eaten those Dickmann’s since probably 10 years or so. My grandparents used to bring me and brother a package of those whenever they came for visit and honestly i never thought of the name of the package in the way you guys are insinuating XD lol.Glad you guys tried it.

  6. Hi, in Israel we have that candy! We call it “CreamBo” (it translated to “cream in it”). We actually have a disagreement about the way you should eat it because it’s too big. Some of the people it the cream first and some eat the biscuit first. Also, we have this candy only at winter time because it’s too hot here at summer and the cream inside is melting…

  7. This has probably already been answered but “dick” means fat in German. “Mann” means man, so I don’t really know how that fits. ;)

  8. After watching this the question that comes to mind is..Where is the blooper footage???

    5 years ago
    • Thought the same thing. I’m guessing the bloopers are too hot for YouTube. Just the main footage was getting a little intense for me in HD full screen on my TV. @[email protected]

  9. hey hey! Do the “Dickmann-game”! I am from germany and there is a game with this! u put your hands behinde your back and try to eat it faster then the others while not using your hands! ohhh and “Dick” only means fat by the way! ;-) there is another name for it and it is called “Neggerkuss” but that is really offensiv so i guess they changed it!

    • In Hungary we used to have this with the same name in Hungarian but these days I can’t see them. I guess when times changed around here and people realized that this is actually offensive, but they couldn’t come up with a perfect name like Super Dickmann so they just stopped producing them?…

      • Weren’t they called “Négercsók” ? Or those were different?

        • I just know for Gremany they were called ” Negerkuss” ! maybe it is “Négercsók” in a different country! mhhhhh, but it is not german! ;-)

  10. Honest to god, i thought that those were kind of normal in the states and around? We have them here in denmark too. but we call them Flødeboller (Floedeboller, translated to cream buns, whipped cream buns.. and google says snowballs.. but no… (flødeboller, Yeah i’d like to see you try and pronounce that >:D )) when someone has to bring cake for class and forgets or someone has to bring something because it’s their birthday, for class, flødeboller is usually what they pick.. yes we get cake and sweets in our classes :P it’s an unwritten tradition here :P

  11. Those commercials are terrible!!! We have a very similar product in Israel but its called Krembo. They are delicious!

  12. You know you totally could have pre-filmed the wtf so they weren’t sitting around for a month worrying about the expiration date and, just saved the footage for this week just saying. But that would have killed the old dick man jokes. Honestly they look just like the rocky road candy bars my mom used to buy all the time when I was a kid. the only difference I see is the wafer on the bottom. and well if you did buy the right one there would be nuts on it. hmmm .

  13. Hello there! I’ve been a lurker for almost a year now, slowly working my way through the EYK back-catalogue, bit by bit. I’m pretty sure I’ve watched 99% of your videos by now. However, the mention of censorship of sexuality in the blog post was just too much for me to stay quiet any longer! As someone who is studying cultural theory at uni there was no way I could resist. First time commenting – so nervous!

    Before I get onto the stuff about censorship – this WTF made me laugh so hard. It gave new meaning to the phrase ‘food porn shots’. I’m just sad that I can’t try a Dickmann myself… y u so far away Germany???

    Anyway, onto censorship! First, let me just state the obvious: the majority of people in this world have emerged from a vagina, fed from a breast or seen hair of the pubic variety. Even if you have never experienced those things, whatever gender you are, you have daily experience with various bits and pieces that are deemed ‘inappropriate’ in the media. Of course, I do understand that in most cases, people would rather their newsreaders and weatherpersons to be appropriately dressed (then again, “The Nudist News” does have a certain appealing alliteration) and to not be confronted with unexpected nudity in shows/movies, there comes a point where censorship of the human body becomes just a little bit silly. I think the phrase is ‘PC gone mad’.

    But this sort of censorship has been around for a long time. Don’t forget that in the entire Western tradition of art up until the last 50 years, women were almost always portrayed completely hairless (excepting the hair on their heads), which has never depicted reality, then or now. Gustave Courbet’s 1866 painting ‘L’Origine du Monde’ is one well known exception – don’t be afraid to look it up! If someone sees you looking, tell them it’s fine art or… *raises eyebrows* for educational purposes.

    Anyway, let’s also not forget that a large number of male statues appear to have leaves for sexual organs. It’s like all media since the beginnings of western civilisation have set out to construct some fantasy world where all the chicks have perky breasts and no pubic hair and the dudes have a piece of greenery in front of their groin. It’s crazy business!

    I think the comparison with death and violence is a really good one, and it’s something I’ve thought about a lot. Breasts rarely hurt people. Hair rarely hurts people, and I’m pretty sure nipples don’t hurt people. There is nothing inherently wrong with these things. And yet, they are regarded as taboo or inappropriate while movies, news and games depicting horrible violence can be accessed very easily by anyone. Don’t get me wrong, I love the occasional violent anime (Berserk, anyone?), and martial arts movies, but the fact that people don’t bat an eyelid at a gory spray or someone getting shot and will flinch at the sight of a nipple… the mind boggles!

    I’ve got this feeling that this prudishness in the US and Canada (and Australia too) could have something to do with a lack of tradition in public bathing. I know you’ve talked about the public baths in Korea before and I know a little about the Finnish sauna. Do you think being comfortable nude around other people affects a culture’s overall attitude to the censorship of nudity?

    Whoa – that got long! Anyway, thanks for being awesome, as usual!

    • I’m glad you brought up public bathing. I don’t think the lack of it is the reason for America’s prudishness, but I do think it is contributing to American’s bad body image. My boss is fairly old (like in her early 60s) and somehow we got into the discussions of how no one showers after taking gym in public school. I told I never did, so no one ever saw each other completely naked. Because of this I think everyone holds photoshopped bodies as “normal” and therefore there are more people with low self esteem.

      5 years ago
    • I completely agree with you. I especially get confused when I catch my favorite action movies on TV. People are dying and there’s blood, but the naked lady walking across the room is cut. Even minimal sex scene, (very, very minimal) is cut, but the dead bodies are scattered around a room is fine. Really, murder is acceptable but sex is not. It’s just that the priorities are a bit mixed up.

    • Looking back, it seems rather strange that a German sweet could lead me to write about the censorship of nudity…

  14. “dick” means fat, thick or large in German, it’s marketed as candy that is really difficult to one-shot because of its largeness. It used to be called N-word kiss, but it was rebranded some years ago for obvious reasons.

  15. I love these! Man I’m totally going to get them with my groceries next time.

  16. We used to have the same thing in Iran (with the size of super dickman) and we called it winter ice cream. I’m not sure they still sell it or not. But it used to be really popular.

  17. Hahaha that was so funny! I really love Dickmanns but we call them Schokoküsse (chocolate kisses). The mini ones come in three different colours, with white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. If you put them in the microwave for about 10 seconds they get bigger and creamier and the chocolate melts a little bit…heaven… I’m going to do some reaearch right now to see if I can find Schokoküsse anywhere in China…miracles do happen sometimes!

  22. Honestly, Dickmann doesn’t mean anything. It’s just the last name of the person who invented those weird treats(I think haha xD)
    If you actually translate it though it means ‘fat man’.

    I find it weird cuz I actually really don’t like those things and everyone I know loves them while I’m just like, ehh.

    • I´m not a big fan of these either…:) once every two or three years I´ll eat one because somebody offered them to me but it´s not that I reaaally like them, though the mini white ones are sometimes nice :)(love white chocolate <3)…

  23. If you thought the German name was bad, I raise you this: In the Netherlands those were actually called ‘neger zoenen’ which means’nigger kisses’. People thought it was offensive, so the name was changed a couple years ago.

    5 years ago
    • the old name in germany were “Negerküsse” (Negros kiss) or “Mohrenkopf” (mohrs head), those names were dropped in favour of the name “Schokoküsse” (chocolate kiss) or the brand name like Dickmann.

      5 years ago
    • And as far as I know in Belgium they call it a ‘negerinnentet’ which means ‘negro boob’

  24. Oh my god, this is hilarious! I never thought of the name that way, but now I’m seeing some of my childhood memorys under a different light.:D Like when we had a Dickmann eating contest during an elementary school festival.. or the one time there was a party at my dancing school everyone should bring cake to and that one kid came with a huge bag full of Super Dickmann packages only to start a huge food fight. Bunch of teenagers throwing Dickmanns at each other’s faces sounds kind of wrong now… xD
    Personally I like the small ones better, because unlike the big ones they come in different variations (white, milk and dark chocolate). And when you eat more of them at once you don’t get that “I’m becoming a Dickman myself”-feeling as fast as with the big ones. ;)

  25. snigger gaffer chortle snort…. we have something similar, eskimo snowballs they are dipped in coconut, but not dick-ish shaped, so no ensuing hilarity just a slight sugar rush.

  28. Oh man, I love those! We buy them at the local German deli. Though I usually get the mini Dickmanns, because there’s more of it to eat. Though the giant ones ARE fun to eat…

  29. I am German and for me this Video is awesome. It is really interesting, because I never think how my language sound to other countries, but this is definitely weird for me now, everytime I will buy them now, I will think about your comments. :D
    So “Dickmann” means “fatman”, just as itsyu said. They are called like this because the founder of the company has the last name “Dickmann”. So they are a actually a brand. Only this company can call them like this, because of the patent. Other companies and Germans call them also, foam kisses or in the past nigger kiss (but this is a little bit racist, we think, that’s why we changed it).
    “Super groß” doesn’t mean super gross. *this is a awesome false friend :D* It means super big. You also can have them in small (mini) version. The bigger ones are good for weird party games, for example eat them as fast as you can without hands. They are also a good cake ingredient.
    The foam kiss has inside a cream or foam made with eggs and sugar and it is really sticky and creamy. It is on a waffle and you can have it with dark chocolate and the mini versions also with white and milk chocolate. I think they are really sweet, but I can eat a lot of them.*.* If you eat to much them you will also become a “Dickmann”. :P

  31. In the netherlands they used to be called ” negerzoenenen”en everybody still refers to them as so but because the first part is seen as offensive it changed its name so now its just” zoenen” wich means kisses. Or the brandname

  32. Dick just means fat or thick, so it kind of means “fatman”. GroB, on the other hand, means big, so “super groB dickmann” is “very big fatman” xD
    In Brasil we also have these and they have several names, all of them kind of bizarre – the ‘strangest’ one means “black woman’s tits” D:

  33. The Austrian equivalent to the Dickmann(= fat man) would be the “Schwedenbombe”. It’s pretty much the same just that the Schwedenbombe is a bit smaller and traditional Viennese candy.

    5 years ago
    • Schwedenbomben (Niemetz) have a different cream inside, which is way better in my opinion.
