Review: Kid in a Candy Store
This is going to be a very short review. Because the show isn’t any good? No, not really. It’s because the newest show from Food Network, Kid in a Candy Store, isn’t new. Adam Gertler is just as charming as he was when he (and three other people) should have beaten out Aaron McCargo Jr. on NFNS 4. It’s the format of the show. There is nothing really new about it.
If you liked Food Finds, Will Work For Food, Unwrapped, Food Tech, Road Tasted (with either the Neely’s or the Deen’s), Man vs. Food, FoodCrafters, Unique Eats, Follow That Food or How’d That Get on My Plate? then you’ll like Kid in a Candy Store. It is pretty much those shows. Only it’s just about desserts. I’m sure for those of you with strong sweet teeth it will be a fun variation of a tried and true formula with an amusing and talented host. As for me, I’m not a big dessert guy. My idea of the perfect dessert is a second cheeseburger.
It is certainly better than Cupcake Wars.
