Jelly Belly Art

We all know what paint and a paintbrush can do. But paint is by no means the limit in the world of art. Jelly Belly beans—that’s right, jelly beans—have become one of the most internationally-celebrated art tools out there. In Shanghai China, a 39-foot-long art piece made of 629,000 Jelly Belly beans set the Guinness World Record in 2010 for largest candy art. In case you needed convincing.

From famous faces to classic art recreations, here is some of the most astounding art the Jelly Belly Candy Company corporation has to offer.
