In what is surely a dream come true for lovers of candy, sleep, and home decor, a New York company has assembled a bed made of gummy bears. The endeavor took four weeks and more than 26,000 gummy bears--not including those that were eaten along the way--and now it will be given away to someone with a sweet tooth and room in their apartment for a bed made of gummy bears.
According to New York 1, the bed was created by Craig Fruchtman, the owner of Craig’s Beds in New York. Fruchtman said he was inspired to create the gummy bed when he saw an Alexander McQueen dress made of the same gummy candies.
The bed reportedly took 26,135 gummy bears to complete, and it is now on display at It’s Sugar in New York, where customers can take as many selfies as they want with the gummy bear bed.
The gummy bear bed will be on display at It’s Sugar through Easter. Until April 6, those who might want to own a bed made of gummy bears, for whatever reason, can enter to win the gummy bed and $500 worth of free candy from It’s Sugar by taking a photo of themselves with the bed and captioning it #gummybearbed on Instagram.
