The Food Channel is introducing Part I of our latest original documentary: Behind the Dream. It’s 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. Some graduates of that program, incidentally, have been the recipients of the scholarship program!
