Allston Pudding Presidential Candy-Dates

Allston Pudding celebrates Presidents Day (and its proximity to Valentine's Day) by asking local artists to imagine a dream date with any Presidential candidate from history... and it must involve candy... Some hilarious stuff here. I'm slide 8.

We walk along a beach of Pop Rocks as the seltzer tide washes over our feet. Words are pieces of salt water taffy we put in our mouths. We collect Jolly Ranchers like skipping stones and throw them far into the ocean. Seagulls dive for Swedish Fish. A hot pink cotton candy sunset takes the shape of Mt. Rushmore. He points at the moon, and while I turn to look, he becomes a bronze statue. —Audrey Harrer -
