I enjoy learning 'food hacking', but this show is clearly a long advertisement
I know these 'classics' are basically flavored turds so I have no interest in eating them. I do however, enjoy the process Wilbur uses to 'food hack' even if many of his tactics are clearly scripted and pre-approved by the ceo(s) of these companies. It's the idea that's interesting - such as his various attempts at social engineering and process of elimination.
Should you ever want to replicate these recipes - you'll need the crappiest materials that you can find if you want the exact taste. If I were you, I'd pick up a book or two specializing in the dish you want to learn. Also, start with fresh quality ingredients and keep the recipes simple.
It's hilarious that this guy hardly ever reveals the most often used 'secret ingredient', msg.
I couldn't quite figure out why the companies would do such as show since Wilbur is probably not a fraud - he's authored many books that reveal various top secret recipes and has happy customers. I suspect that the companies realize that most people are too lazy to put even the slightest dent into their market share and getting featured on this show is free publicity.
The best episode is Mrs. Field's cookies - the ceo is such a little corporate bi*ch. He kisses his absent boss's ass with glowing praises and worships her cookies with unwavering dedication.
