Who needs a fancy red carpet when you could have a colorful carpet made of candy? This awesome 607-foot-long, 23-foot-wide carpet is made of 13 tonnes of candy covering 14,000 square feet along a sidewalk in Chengdu, China. Designed by graphic artists Craig Redman and Karl Maier, aka Craig & Karl, and curated by AllRightsReserved, the candy carpet was created as part of an event at the IFS shopping center called “Sweet At One,” meant to raise awareness about the plight of impoverished children in surrounding rural areas of China. 2000 volunteers helped place all of the candy, which was later donated to hungry kids and their families along with 15,000 meals.
Promoters dubbed this creation “the world’s largest candy carpet,” so we can’t wait to see someone break this record - and here’s hoping they invite us over to eat some candy afterwards.
