Immaculate Confection

Some people are addicted to The Hills while others find their compulsions lie with gambling or video games. My long-suffering boyfriend, however, has a far worse problem. He is addicted to Gummi Bears. This would not be much of an issue if his preferences didn't run exclusively towards Haribo brand Gummi Bears, the aristocracy of gelatinous movie theater candy. And it seems he is not alone. Jason Freeny, the artistic genius behind Moist Productions (I know, at least he didn't call it "secretions") has finally validated Gummi addicts the world over and silenced their exasperated loved ones.

The Anatomy of Gummi Bears collection is fantastic and include such classics as "You Are What Eats You" and "Immaculate Confection". A self-professed child of hippies, Freeny has designed trophies for MTV award ceremonies and "develop[s] works of candy colored madness" while watching cartoons with his son. Check him out. Sweet tooth or not, Freeny is a treat.
