Candyman: The David Klein Story

You know, it’s my job to think about candy and candy news. Thanksgiving weekend is not traditionally a candy holiday, but what a perfect weekend this is for candy. It must be the time of year coupled with the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I, that got me thinking about Bertie Bott’s Jelly Beans and our review of them. Trying those awful beans with my brother reminded me of being a kid and daring each other into eating and doing stupid things. We once talked about trying out for Fear Factor but realized pretty quickly we’d both be done in by the gross foods. It’s funny what brings a family together – bonding over candy. I think that’s what makes candy so appealing to so many people.

A great example of this is Candyman: The David Klein Story showing 11/27/2010 on the Documentary channel at 8 PM, EST and PST. If you’re like me, you’ve probably never heard of David Klein, until now. In fact, though he invented the Jelly Belly jellybean, he isn’t even mentioned by name on Jelly Belly’s website under company history; he is referred to only as “a Los Angeles candy distributor”.

Stark Industries Iron Man 2 safe

Being a Candy Addict, I manage to get some cool candy schwag every now and then, but today I got the coolest yet. It’s a safe stolen from Stark Industries (from Iron Man).

Allow me to explain…

A few days ago I got a semi-mysterious email from an MIT student saying that he was working with Marvel Studios and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups to promote the upcoming Iron Man 2 movie. He said he was part of Team Peanut Butter and they were out to beat Team Chocolate.

Candy Cinema: Miam!

Categories: Candy,Candy Art,Candy Videos


Miam! Supinfocom Arles 2008 from miamteam on Vimeo.

File this under coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time. Miam! is the amazing work of a team of French filmmakers. The animated short follows a young boy as he journeys up the shelves of the candy aisle and into a magical world of candy. Along with a candy princess, he goes on an adventure through this land of candy, eventually fighting the Great Blob of Mockolate to save the princess. (Ok, maybe it’s supposed to be chocolate and not mockolate, but could chocolate really be so evil? I say nay! ‘Tis the work of the evil mockolate!)

And boy is there candy! Every kind you can think of, amazingly rendered and animated. From gummi bears to licorice to gumdrops and lollipops, it definitely looks good enough to eat. It’s like a Candy Addict’s dream come to life… on film, at least.

Many thanks to Laurent, one of the creators, for sharing this with us!


And the Best Candy Cameo Goes To…

Candy Addict is still in transition, but I thought it would be nice to give you something to tide you over. So enjoy and keep watching for our return to full function soon!

Since it’s awards season, I was noticing the marked lack of candy-related awards. I’m sure it’s just an oversight on the part of the various academies. But as a dedicated Candy Addict it’s my job to help remedy that fact.

I’m thinking the category should be something like “Best Use of Candy as a Prop in a Motion Picture or Television.” My nominees are:

While surfing the interwebs, I ran across this homemade video. Funny stuff. I thought for sure he was going down the Diet Coke and Mentos road but not so.
