Hat Creek Candle Company to Be Featured on the Food Network's "Unwrapped"

Company's Unique and Deliciously Scented Cookie Melts to Be Showcased

WATERTOWN, WI--(Marketwire - October 8, 2010) -  Hat Creek Candle Company, creator of whimsical made-from-scratch artisan candles, today announced that it will be featured on the Food Network's program, "Unwrapped." The episode, titled "Cookie Jar," focuses on cookies and cookie-themed products, and will initially air October 11th, 2010, at 8:30pm ET.

The Food Network's "Unwrapped," hosted by Marc Summers, uncovers behind-the-scenes details on classic American food, from peanut butter and chocolate syrup to French fries and bubblegum. The "Cookie Jar" episode will feature numerous cookie-themed segments, including profiling offerings from Quaker Oats and Harry and David's.

To compose the segment, producers from the network's flagship show spent a day at Hat Creek's Watertown, Wisconsin, facility, filming the Cookie Melt process. Producers captured the incredible transformation of how batches of raw wax "bake" into elaborate and sweet-smelling cookies that could easily be mistaken for an afternoon snack. This process included "whipping" the wax, with a real kitchen mixer, into a dough-like consistency, and even adding wax toppings, including chocolate drops and realistic looking and smelling wax pecans.

In addition to the Food Network-featured Cookie Melts, Hat Creek Candle creates a variety of clean burning, classically scented candles in traditional jar sizes, as well as countless other "Fresh Baked" items including cupcakes and petite pies, with real cinnamon used in the crust to give it an authentic look and smell.

Hat Creek's candles and other products can be found at the Watertown, Wisconsin, store location and online at
