Candies, little as they are, never fail to zap us back to our childhood. What more if they were big – no, gigantic!

Nicola Freeman came up with the idea of enlarging candies to a scale that was shocking. And shock her gigantic candy sculptures did. But more than that, the larger-than-life sweets were also described by onlookers as enchanting and fun – two words that clearly belong to our youth.

The oversized confectionery included Love Hearts, a Sweetie Watch, a Sweetie Necklace and a lollipop, all of which are popularly beloved treats. It must have been hard to see the commentary on mass consumerism past the fond memories these elicited.
