Hasselhoff The Candy Man

Although David Hasselhoff's recent reality TV series co-starring his daughters, Taylor-Ann and Hayley, may have already been cancelled, he can find at least he can find comfort in chocolate.

The former "Knight Rider" and "Baywatch" star recently toured the Cologne Museum of Chocolate in Germany, where the American actor has an intensely-devoted following as a pop singer.

"This is probably the only chocolate museum in the world and you know it's funny because I wish my daughters were here to share in this because this is something I think every little kid in the world would love," Hasselhoff told reporters during the visit.

Hasselhoff came up with some holiday gift ideas for his family.

"My assistants will pick up some chocolate for my daughters. Because this will be their first Christmas present so we're going to do a little 'Super-Market Sweep' of chocolate today."

Shopping aside, Hasselhoff also got to cook up his own chocolate Santa Claus -- a sweet diversion from the promotion of his upcoming pop music tour dates in Europe. As a performer, Hasselhoff has gained a huge following in Germany

"I've never seen a chocolate museum. As a matter of fact, I came here to talk about my tour and now all I want to do is eat chocolate."

But "The Hoff" may not want to indulge too much, as he will soon prepare for his upcoming tour and a return to Television.

The Associated Press reports that he will soon replace Simon Cowell as the host of "Britain's Got Talent," the U.K. program which propelled singer Susan Boyle into the spotlight.
