Unwrapped in an American television series that takes a behind the scenes view of how some of America's most beloved treats are made. It is hosted by Mark Summers on the Food Network. Each episode is filmed in a small diner. Episodes have a theme like favorite movie snacks, peanut butter snacks, and deli items. Many iconic American dishes and treats have been examined individually like chocolate, circus peanuts, and peanut butter. Some of the more unique treats include sponge candy, pickles, and protein bars. For most, if not all of the products, viewers are taken into the factory that makes the foods like Hershey's, Jelly Bellys, and numerous cereal, chip, and frozen food factories. Since some foods have a secret ingredient or process, the episodes shows as much of the process as it is allowed. This show has also done episodes on small time businesses like Hammond's candy. They have holiday candy episodes about candy corn, candy canes, Kwanza candies, and Valentine's Day heart candies. Most episodes are about sweets but there are also savory episodes. For instance there is an episode about beef jerky, one about honey baked ham, and another on chicken soup. Not only does this show go in depth about foods, it also has an episode about toys that are made to put in fast food meals for children, and one about sparkling cider. This show has been on for nine seasons since 2001. To date there are 308 episodes all based on unique foods.
