Suddenly, the Super Foods appear singing their theme song. Grover tries to tell them a superhero is already on the case, but the foods show the object is a kiwi and use their powers to slice it up. The cheese tells Elmo to try it, but he's never had one before. She sings "Try, Try Again" to encourage him to try the fruit. Elmo gives it a taste and enjoys it!
