Warner Bros. International Television Production has acquired exclusive global rights to produce Nippon TV's “Sokkuri Sweets” in the Netherlands. The local adaptation titled "Showcolade" is already being produced by BlazHoffski and is set to air on NPO1. It will air every Sunday prime-time beginning 18th April.

The announcement was made by Nippon TV's Mikiko Nishiyama, Managing Director of International Business Development. “It is an immense honor to once again have WBITVP embrace another one of our crazy, Japanese game shows and deliver it to the world, not long after the phenomenal launch of “Mute it!” on SBS6 in the Netherlands this March," Nishiyama said. "I have no doubt that “Showcolade” will have great success in the Netherlands and provide an entertaining treat to viewers with its sweet surprises and laughter as the chocolatiers make their country proud on this global stage.”

The format was successful since it first aired, showcasing a game show in which celebrities seek sweets and pastries that look identical to real-life objects. The contestants must differentiate between the real pastries, and the deceiving objects. Once they decide, it's time to take a bite to find out what it is.

Based on the original format, the Dutch local version “Showcolade” will have arrangements unique to the Netherlands as an export titan of chocolate. All of the sweets presented in the show are created by the leading chocolatiers in the Netherlands, and the only ingredient they can use is chocolate. In the final episode, the winning chocolatier is decided by how many of their works are not found out as a “fake” throughout the series.
