Really inappropriate for young kids! But other than that, EXCELLENT!!!! Favorite show on the whole dang TV.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

The series showcases the work and creativity that goes into candy art and design. It also shows how someone's idea can go from a creative concept to an actual finished product. Candy decorating techniques are also explained.

The format of the show isn't particularly unique, and conversations that go beyond the creative work featured here seem a little forced. But the endless piles of treats, as well as the magical displays being created here, makes it feel (sort of) like a guilty pleasure.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
