First up, Malt-o-Meal is bringing dessert to the breakfast nook with their Chocolatey Mini Spooners, and at Max Brenner's chocolate restaurant, you can get the delicacy almost every way imaginable! Then, dip into the Mrs. Field's factory with their new chocolate-covered cookies, and watch how Simply Divine Brownies is using technology to make a personalized treat! Later, the mystery ingredient that makes P2C2 so good, and find out why Gifford's Chocolate Lovers Ice Cream was voted the world's best!

  • Go inside the world of comfort foods with Marc Summers with visits to Resers mac & cheese, Fairytale Brownies, Royal Burgers at Red Robin, Clam Chowder at Fisherman's Restaurant, the Idahoan Potato factory & 9 layer lasagna at Claim Jumper.

First up, follow us to Blue Bunny where we'll see how to make the perfect banana split, then Fisher Nuts has a less traditional version of that midnight treat. Later, Mrs. Fields delivers a giant cookie with a little twist, and do you know what "calzone" means in Italian? Michael Angelo's Gourmet Foods does! Then, check out how Arby's puts the curl in their famous curly fries, and we'll track down a Los Angeles food cart that satisfies grilled cheese cravings all night long!

  • A cornucopia of Thanksgiving favorites, all stuffed into one special Unwrapped! What's on our holiday table? The secrets to sides like Pepperidge Farm's stuffing and Ocean Spray cranberry sauce. If you can't decide between turkey or duck or chicken, "turduchen" stuffs them all into one big bird! The Jolly Green Giant's veggies are favorites but did you know the big guy wasn't always green and he wasn't always a giant? Also we visit Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts to see what really was (and wasn't) on the first Thanksgiving table. And save room for dessert-we've got Marie Callender's pies and Reddi-wip. All this plus muffins and mashers and much much more on a special hour-long "Turkey & Trimmings" edition of Unwrapped.
