In this final part (Part IV) of our Behind the Dream series, you’ll see how supporters of the For the Love of Chocolate Foundation event come out in style to enjoy a night of chocolate sensory overload! It’s a Carnival theme, and a carnival atmosphere at the Merchandise Mart, one of the largest buildings in the world.
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.
In this final part of the WebTV series, you’ll see the various themed areas of the event and will see how it all comes together. You’ll also meet Princess Lollipop and see how the event started, and why this year it was all about understanding how dreams get fulfilled.
