Dance Break

While the culinary competition on Rewrapped may be fierce, host Joey still found time to treat the contestants –– and the off-camera crew –– to an impromptu performance.

Deliberation at Work

Pastry Chef Jenny McCoy, Marc Summers and Irene Britt Chang, the president of Pepperidge Farm and the vice president of global baking and snacking, gather for a quick chat during the mint-chocolate Milano Cookies challenge.

On the Clock

The contest is split in two halves, and in Round 1, rivals must re-create the snack of the day, here mint-chocolate Milano Cookies, with limited time, before inventing a dish using the original product in Round 2.

 

Surprising Scene

No matter the situation unfolding before Joey's eyes, it was surely worthy of a jaw-dropped expression.

Camera-Ready

It takes multiple lenses to fully capture the Rewrapped kitchen, comprised of three cooking stations and a judges' table, plus various tools, equipment and ingredients.

Panel Seats

The judges are perched high on a platform for a clear view of the kitchen. They're tasked with tasting the competitors' dishes in both rounds and awarding points for taste, texture, presentation and creativity.

Wall of Tools

Common gadgets like pots, pans and mixers, as well as specialty items like high-powered blenders and food processors, are available to each competitor.

Building a Theme

Whimsical and sweet, the Rewrapped kitchen carries the snack theme throughout — even the ovens are built to look like larger-than-life pieces of candy.

Within Reach

The pantry on set is located in the corner of the kitchen, so all three rivals have easy access to it, and it's fully stocked with plenty of flour, sugar and spices.

Equipment Galore

Rewrapped's culinary team set up a help-yourself station of spoons, spatulas, whisks and various other implements so contestants can grab whatever they need in a flash.

Setting the Scene

The front of each competitor's workstation is adorned with a colorful image depicting the snack of the day.

Anything Goes

While most snacks are definitively sweet or savory, the kitchen is stocked with additional ingredients with both flavor profiles, so competitors can add any and all tastes to inventive dishes in Round 2.
