These Concrete Block Containers Serve as Thrones to Totalitarian Treats

Observing these political candy packages, you have to let go of all preconceptions of what sweets' packaging typically is. While there is a glut of wrapper types for the full spectrum of saccharine eats, nothing is quite like this exceedingly heavy form of protection and presentation, for and item that's actually individually wrapped.

Dana Porat's 'One Candy' concept is anchored in the symbolism of the 20th century's totalitarian regimes. The concrete block is a pedestal that stands for the monarchy; it's capped with a small silver dish that keeps the liquorice lozenge from touching the masonry directly. These stone thrones have been made from differently tinted materials, but they communicate the same symbolic strength in this whimsical political candy concept.
