    GREAT SHOW!!! Love Marc Summers.
  • "Unwrapped" is a series on Food Network. Hosted by Marc Summers, this show takes you behind the scenes on how foods (and occasionally food-related things) are processed.

    I have watched this show ever since I can remember. I am not exactly sure how long I have watched it, but I know it has been a long time for it seems like the set has changed at least a million times, for the set keeps changing, and the host had reddish blond hair at the beginning of the show (it's gray now.) It's so cool to see how my favorite snacks are made and it gets me interested in foods I have never heard of before. There are only two things I don't like about this show:



    1. The jokes & puns tend to be sort of corny (although that's part of the "Unwrapped charm".)

    2. I always am tempted to eat junk food after I watch this show, LOL!



    Overall, I would reccomend "Unwrapped" to anyone who likes to learn, cook, or eat!moreless
  • Interesting, if not slightly bland, show on how and where popular foods come from.

    7.7
    On the negative side, this show tends to repeat certain clips, companies, and sequences throughout the show. Say if it had an episode about "Candy" and one about "Chocolate", you might see some of the same clips. Or at least other ones that were taken at the same time.

    But, I do enjoy this show. I love to watch how hard candy gets made and tossed through the tumblers. Or the origin of 'cheese food'. Or especially the little details of some our favorite restaurants and food stores.

    Basically it's insightful, entertaining, and somewhat educational. Nothing you couldn't learn about from some good internet or Wikipedia searches. But still fun to watch. Mark is also a pretty good host.moreless
  • pretty good..

    7.6
    this shows really informative and unlike how its made the announcer has a voice that will keep you interested the whole way. they talk about foods that u would eat every day and its interesting to see what makes them. i try to watch this whenever i can. i think it is a good show for the whole family, even the littler kids because the show unwrapps icecream... cookies... and other sweets that they love 2 eat. i personally like the ice cream episode and the holiday one the best... its kool 2 see how they make pumpkin pies and my favorite flavors of icecream.moreless
  • I love this show =P

    9.1
    Well, the candy-related episodes at least. They make me hungry. =P It's mad interesting seeing how everything is made. And it's a great waste of time. Marc Summers is delightfully corny. My least favorite episode was the one involving chocolate because even though it was interesting it was so gross to watch. I hate chocolate! Unless it's with like, peanut butter or nuts. This review is getting pretty random. Anyway yeah, Unwrapped hasn't had any new episodes, I don't think? They should definitely come back and show how more candy is made. Like Hubba Bubba. How do they get the gum center in there. Anyway yeah.moreless

    • I love the cooking Channel
      I like how they have the history of all the foods and tell you how they make it I think it is a really cool show.

      I like candy episodes the best. I'm not so into it when they talk about frozen chicken bits and stuff. Or those shots of big vats ...
