Kid in a Candy Store

Hosted by Adam Gertler

Ooey, Gooey, Chewy

Adam Gertler is biting off more than he can handle with candy and confections that are ooey, gooey and chewy. In Tennessee, the sky is the limit for the Chattanooga Bakery, where they are updating the traditional recipe for MoonPies. To make the new MoonPie Crunch varieties, fillings like fluffy peanut butter and mint crème are sandwiched between chocolate cookies. See how a traditional, chewy candy goes from mild to wild in La Porte, Indiana, where the American Licorice Company is releasing new Sour Punch Bits that deliver twin bursts of tart in every juicy bite. Then discover the sensationally decadent candy bars at Zingerman's Candy Manufactory in Ann Arbor, MI, where gooey handmade nougat is layered with original specialties like muscovado caramel and raspberry chocolate ganache.
