When Gladys gets stood up for her date by the candy delivery man, she punishes the whole camp by banning candy at Camp Kikiwaka. Seeing an opportunity, Zuri and Jorge start a candy smuggling ring and end up getting Tiffany, whose mother unsurprisingly has never allowed her to eat candy, hooked.
The candy ring is basically a G-rated version of drug smuggling, complete with Jorge purchasing a white gangster suit and gator skin shoes and Tiffany turning into a candy junky so desperate for a sugar fix she’s seen licking a tree looking for sap. After Tiffany trades her violin for a chocolate chunk, Jorge tells her “Welcome to rock bottom, sister” and sets up an intervention with her stuffed animals. Zuri then caught Jorge badmouthing her products, which results in Jorge to call her nuts. Out of choices, Jorge decides to quit, and give up candy forever (or until he gets home from camp).
The Emma and Xander romance kicks into another gear when Xander asks Emma out – since he’s a dreamboat guitar player he does it with a song, naturally. When Lou finds out about their date, she tells Emma they go together like peanut butter and eggs, meaning that as a good thing. But when Ravi overhears Xander talking about his ex-girlfriend and how he is going to shred for Emma with an axe on their date he gets protective of his sister, thinking she’s being set up for a Friday the 13th-inspired date in a secluded spot in the woods.
Emma starts to think Ravi might be right when Xander shows her a hole he’s dug and the axe he brought along. She even goes so far as to hit Xander with a tree branch, only to discover that Xander dug the hole to build a bonfire for s’mores. He’s not an axe murderer after all. When Ravi came to warn Emma about Xander, he fell in the hole that Xander created, and so did Lou, who came to save the day. This results in Ravi breaking a rib, (possibly not literally since he seems fine enough to intrude on their s’more making at the end of the episode) since he broke Lou's fall. Emma then tells Xander that she is really glad that when she was hitting him with that branch, it didn't hit his face. Back at Camp Kikiwaka, Ravi apologizes to Emma and Xander for ruining their date and swore that he will never get in their romantic moments again until he realizes that he is in one. Xander seems to lean in for a kiss with Emma, but Lou interrupts, finding them making s'mores.
The smuggling ring ends up getting broken up by Gladys, who confiscates the money she finds in Jorge’s mattress for dollar slots, but Jorge does earn points with Zuri for not ratting her out. To take Tiffany’s mind off of candy, they introduce her to something else addicting she’s never been exposed to: video games.

Lou: Boys are like hot dogs, delicious but wondering what’s inside will make you puke.
