The Food Network has a new sugar-themed show, "Kid in a Candy Store," featuring Adam Gertler,
the winner of who competed on season four of Next Food Network star.
The show is sort of like a Diners, Drive-ins and Dives for bakeries and sweets shops. The show premieres 8 p.m., Monday, July 12.
The episode airing July 19 features two local stores: Chapel Hill's Sugarland, a bakery with a full bar popular with UNC students. (Our favorite cupcake in a cupcake taste test earlier this year was from Sugarland: a spumoni cupcake. Click HERE.) The press release says Gertler enjoyed a frothy gelato cocktail called a Tartini at Sugarland.
Also featured on the show is Sunni Sky's homemade ice cream shop in Angier. The shop is famous for their spicy hot ice cream flavors called cold sweat and exit wound.
(While in the area, the Fuquay-Varina Independent reported on Gertler's visits to Sunni Sky's. Click HERE to read that story.)
