We love candy and we know you do too. That’s why we’re always looking for new and exciting ways to inject the fun and flavor of our candies into more places. With that in mind, we’re proud to announce the first ever (that we know of) Recipes with Candy Contest for Food Bloggers.
We’ve discovered some very unique, candy-made, Mosaic Portraits created by Jason Mecier.
Mecier is a unique artist who has used a wide range of materials that many would deem “trash” to create intricate portraits of famous celebrities. Recently he released a new series of Mosaics made out of candy ( Hot Tamales, Gummy Bears, Candy Corn, licorice and more) which are pop celebrity inspired! Here are a few of our favorites: Continue reading
I’m pretty fond of Gummy Bears, just like a lot of other folks. This is especially true with the explosion of shapes, colors and sizes that are now available. One thing I also like is stop motion video. Not sure why, I just think it’s cool. My plan is to combine these two things together and make a cool gummy stop motion video one day. Continue reading
My daughter’s Bat Mitzvah was last week. If you’ve been to one of these, you have probably seen that the décor is usually based on a theme.
