Getting dirty with candy and Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe

Categories: Candy,Candy News

Dirty Jobs

There’s no mention of it on the Discovery Channel website, but according to their promo commercial, this week’s episode of Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe (one of Brian’s favorite shows), will feature a trip to a candy maker. While not nearly as dirty as most of the jobs he covers (like Avian Vomitologist and Garbage Pit Technician) I guess you can get dirty making candy – just dirty in a good way. Who wouldn’t want to come home covered in sugar or chocolate?

The promo shows some boiling sugar in copper pots and a candy making slab, but I’m not really sure what type of candy they are making, except that it’s obviously sugar-based, which doesn’t really narrow it down all that much. The show premieres on Tuesday July 25th, 2006 at 9PM EST, but be sure to check your local listings.

UPDATE: Mike visited Wertz Candy in Lebanon, PA.

    Dear Mike, I have to say that I think you are the sexiest man on TV today. I love watching your show. If you are ever in the Middle Tennessee area filming a Dirty Job, give me a shout and I will be happy to give you a Tennessee home cooked meal. I bet you rarely get real food out on the road. Continue doing what you’re doing. We all love you!! Dava Whittaker

    RESPONSE: My wife thinks he’s sexy too :)

    Hey Mike, my dad and I love your show. I can’t see how making candy would be a dirty job, but i’d sure like to do the checking job. as in checking the finished candy (mostly beacuse i’d eat half the candy that passed over the coveyer belt). I got worried your show would end when I saw you were running out of dirty jobs. I have to say, some of the jobs you try are just plain barbaric. I don’t know how you do it, just keep up the good work! Best wishes from my dad and I.

    sincerely, Bartimaeus

    Hi Mike,
    I have just begun watching your show because I think you are so funny (sarcastically so) and so cute. I’m 53 years old, single, have a PhD, am attractive, athletic, love horses and want to meet you.
    Can you fly into Kansas City just for an hour so we can meet. :)
    I can’t believe I just wrote that but I will never know unless I ask.
    Seriously, I just love your show and the way you say “poo.” I ride competitive trail rides with my horse (naturally) and poo has become my favorite word as I ride 60+ miles. I entertain my fellow competitors talking about the poo you handle.
    And seriously I am so intrigued with you that I would love to meet you.
    Of course I haven’t asked the most important question which is
    Are you married?
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Dr. Christine A.,

    No, Mike is not married. He’s single at the moment.

    Great show Mike!

    I’ve noticed your voice-over work in many shows and even love your hosting of “The Most”.

    Greetings Mike from the thriving metropolis of Bremen,IN.

    I must say I have never been smitten by a Television personality, however after watching Dirty Jobs for the first time Monday evening I went into work the next day looking for a dirty job just for you Mike. I am sure that one of our Wire Mills at Copperfield (Head Quartered in Bremen, IN.) is sure to get you a bit messy. We can dress you up in one of the white jump suits the guys wear and you’ll be pleasantly speckled with oils and grease all the while learning the art of copper drawing (a rather expensive commodity these days). Needless to say, I have no doubt that though greasy with oil you’ll still look fabulous!! Wire production is an interesting process all by itself, however with you at the helm guiding the audience it will be a spectacular process to be sure!!!

    Give us call if you are interested.

    Ok maybe it’s just me but, did anyone else notice that these people think they are actually talking to Mike Rowe in these comments??? Hows about going to and leaving him a message instead of a candy website that he isnt even affiliated with…

    That would be like me going to and leaving a message for the guys at Mythbusters…

    Dee da dee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Mike Rowe is a jack of all trades! I just watched some of the most hilarious u-tube videos of Mike on QVC. I do not know how he did it, but shameless! I have a dirty job idea for Mike, but for some reason I am having trouble emailing him. This job involves nudity (get your mind out of the gutter) and a multitude of ingredients. Anyone have a suggestion on how to actually email dirty jobs?

    thanks, and Happy Hoilidays!
