You can make the really good (and caloric) recipes (see yummy story in the life section) with your rejected/overstocked candy or, you can channel your inner Marc Chagall and make a candy mosaic. In addition to being a fun waste of time, your artwork can serve as a dining or coffee-table centerpiece during a party. (Quick, you've still got time before tonight!) • Our creation, Zombert Einstein, was styled by Emma Couture, St. Petersburg High sophomore, from a surplus of Sour Patch Kids, gummy worms, a few pieces of chocolate and some disgusting packaged sour apple-flavored cotton candy. We bought it because we thought it would be a fantastic icky green color, but FAIL; it was boring white. • Our industrious food artist turned it into crazy white hair, reminiscent of Albert Einstein's unruly shock. Green of face and vacant of stare, Zombert Einstein came to be.
Don't like the candy? Go ahead, make a face
