Kristin Chenoweth hosts the new Food Network show Candy Land and fans are thrilled. The show is a reality, baking competition based on the classic Hasbro game Candy Land. The six-episode series will see five teams competing against each other as they make their way through various Candy Land stations.
The Food Network issued a press release about the new show and stated the following.
Premiering Sunday, Nov. 15 at 9|8c, each episode features the teams stepping into one of the eye-popping lands brought to life, including giant candy canes in Peppermint Forest, life-size gumdrops at Gumdrop Mountains, a real-life gingerbread house at Chocolate Mountain, enormous and luscious lollipops in Lollipop Woods, and lemons growing right off the vines in Lemon Lime Springs. The players must forage for flavors and unique ingredients within each land to use for their sugar masterpieces before presenting to judges Nacho Aguirre and Aarti Sequeira, who determine which teams advance down the board game path based on creativity, technical execution, and how well the candies of the land were incorporated. The first team to make it to King Kandy’s Castle wins the game and earns the grand prize of $25,000.
Kristin Chenoweth appears thrilled with her new hosting gig and shared the following tweet.
The Candy Land set is edible and people are excited to see the new holiday baking show. Kristin sat for an interview with iHollywood TV and gave the viewers a first look at the set.
Food Network continued to say the following.
See how the breathtaking set of Candy Land came to life — whether it’s more than 100 pounds of chocolate used for Chocolate Mountain or 1,000 lollipops needed to create Lollipop Woods — in a one-hour special premiering Sunday, Nov. 15 at 10|9c. Host David Bromstad (HGTV’s My Lottery Dream Home) treats viewers to an exclusive peek into the making of each land and the creative process of the minds that are undertaking this monumental challenge, along with learning the history of the iconic Hasbro game that continues to be a childhood favorite.
