Gather around, children, and I will tell you a cherished tale of our ancestors. Way back in the 1990s, there was a television show called Beavis and Butthead--a soaring epic of courage, beauty, love, and fart jokes.
One of the two heroes of that story was Beavis, a sub-standard teenage boy who transformed into an alter ego when he overdosed on sugary snacks. Thus Beavis would become The Great Cornholio. You can observe the transformation in this video:
Like Peter Parker and the radioactive spider, The Great Cornholio was born from an experiment gone awry. Beavis and Butthead visited a sick friend in order to mock him. The boy's mother offered them breakfast burritos as a snack, which they found repellent. So they rooted through her kitchen cabinets in search for more satisfying fare. Beavis found candy, ate too much of it, and became The Great Cornholio.

Perry Santanachote, a culinary necromancer at Thrillist, made this tasty homage to The Great Cornholio. It is a burrito composed of the ingredients that formed our hero's catalytic meal: a Snickers bar, a Twinkie, jelly beans, sprinkles, jam, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and Fruity Pebbles wrapped up in Fruit Roll-Ups.
