Behind the Dream: Part II


In Part II of our Behind the Dream series, you’ll see just how dedicated a group of young high school students can be when they are asked to create something larger than life. Watch and see just what it takes to get a project as big as For the Love of Chocolate off the ground.

Behind the Dream is based on a partnership between the Jelly Belly Candy Company and The French Pastry School at Kennedy-King College of City Colleges of Chicago as part of the For the Love of Chocolate Foundation event, which took place on February 25, 2012.

A part of the documentary is dedicated to “the making of the bean,” in which Chicago’s famed Cloud Gate sculpture was recreated in Jelly Belly Jelly Bean Chocolate Dips. The project benefits French Pastry School’s For the Love of Chocolate Scholarship Foundation, which raises money to provide scholarships to students in specialized pastry arts programs. Students from Chicago’s After School Matters’ Culinary Program assembled the sculpture.
