This documentary miniseries tells fascinating stories of the people behind the food that built America and follows the ups and downs of several now-household product names such as Henry Heinz, Will and John Kellogg, Frank and Forrest Mars, Charlie Post and his ambitious daughter Marjorie, Milton Hershey, Harland Sanders, McDonald brothers, and the nearly-forgotten John Pemberton and his invention, Coca-Cola. These people were visionaries with ambition, drive, a thirst for success and a willingness to risk everything on an untested, untried idea for a food that no one had experienced before, in times when failure and bankruptcy were just a step away. Each story is told by talented actors and supported by interviews with food historians, history professors and food writers.
