Iconic Celebrities Immortalized In Candy Art


The chain of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum/attractions have commissioned new artwork to pay tribute to some of the most iconic celebrities for display in their stores around the country. Among the celebs immortalized are Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe … and the medium used for these pieces? Candy! Check ‘em out:

These amazing pieces of art have been made out of gumdrops, licorice and M&M’s. I understand that the pieces will be shared among the various Ripley’s locales … I know we have a Ripley’s museum here in Hollywood, CA. To be honest, I wouldn’t mind having one of these pieces hanging in my own home … I think a portrait of Britney Spears made out of candy would look EXCELLENT over our fireplace mantle. Which one of these do you like best?

    wouldn’t the candy melt over your fireplace?

    • @BO — Er … I hadn’t thought about that. I guess not if it’s been varnished … dunno.

    How do you put Beyonce with the likes of these legends and then leave Britney out?

  • izzi

    How the heck did Beyonce get in this group?

  • mimi

    uhm neither britney or beyonce should be considered iconic.. theyre from the bubblegum pop generation and yeah both were extremely popular during that time but DEF NOT iconic as any of the other artists part of this group.

  • jake

    Madonna shd be there..not Beyonce

  • Daisy

    Elvis!! For sure!!

  • JessieAnn

    M.J. looks ridiculous. I don’t like it. Marilyn looks weird. Elvis is great and this is great of him..but I’m not fan of Beyonce, however I like hers the best out of these 4. Don’t know how she is placed with such iconic artists…I think Madonna should be up there.

  • ohs

    If you go to the Jelly Belly factory in California, they have done numerous of these with their jellybeans for years

  • Nik
