Giant Candy Carpet Mosaic in China

A 607-foot-long “carpet” of candy, arranged into a colorful mosaic, was installed on a sidewalk in Chengdu, China as part of a recent promotion for the IFS shopping center. Made of 13 tons of candy and spanning 14,000 square feet, the installation was touted by organizers as the “world’s largest candy carpet.” The installation was created by artists Craig Redman and Karl Maier of art duo Craig & Karl, and was curated by AllRightsReserved. In addition, the candy wasn’t wasted: it was given away to underprivileged children after the close of the installation.
