Kid in a Candy Store

Hosted by Adam Gertler

Suckers, Sugar Art, Cotton Candy

Adam Gertler uncovers the unconventional candy-making techniques transforming sugar into unexpected, unique confections. At the Charms factory in Covington, TN, a carnival classic is spiked with pucker power to make Tear Jerkers Sour Cotton Candy. In Weymouth, MA, outrageous lollipops made by the sucker specialists at Melville Candy Company taste like buttered popcorn and carrot cake, and look even more bizarre! The shocking sugar shapes even include a mega-pop modeled on Adam's face! At Chicago's Alliance Bakery, see how chocolate is sculpted into realistic driftwood, and molten sugar is blown like glass to build towering works of candy architecture. (Episode: KR0209H)
