Gummy bears… They help us sleep and create yummy couture. The gelatinous little guys are also good for some occasional food art.

Madrid-based Marta Alonso Yerba has taken gummy bear art to another level, melting them down and creating pieces that resemble stained glass. The beautifully-colored panels are actually made into light boxes, filtering light to form beautiful patterns.

Oh, gummy bears… Is there anything you can’t do?

Avengers: Age of Ultron is about to make ninety-trillion dollars at the box office… give or take. So, it only makes sense that the movie gets its proper Sesame Street parody.

Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon is a fruit and vegetable-themed superhero flick, starring plant-based protagonists. Dr. Brownie, Onion Man, Captain Americauliflower, Black Bean Widow, Mighty Corn, and Zuchin-eye team up to battle the evil Bon Bon and giant cookie spaceships.

The puns and Muppet violence is plentiful. We won’t give away the ending, but let’s just say that another giant green monster comes to the rescue. Please watch this…

Foods Arranged Neatly To Form Gradients of Color And Shape

There’s something very appealing about seeing foods arranged neatly. It gives us even more of the warms and fuzzies when the foods create patterns with color and shape.

Artist Brittany Wright is here to help, with her Instagram series #FoodGradients. The photos represent “a meticulous arrangement of similar food according to their graduating color tones.”

The result… a satisfying series for the obsessive compulsive, or anyone who appreciates a study in color and food porn. See more below and over at Wright’s Instagram series here.
