Fans of the legendary cartoon The Simpsons series can now enjoy a tangible treat thanks to the creation of real-life, edible Gummi Venus de Milo candies. These delicious treats commemorate the classic episode, 'Homer Badman.'

As far as most comical The Simpsons plot lines go, the 'Homer Badman' episode is a cult favorite. In it, Homer Simpson visits a candy convention and encounters the most iconic work of gummy art, the Gummi Venus de Milo. While the candy was only a TV show myth, now you can enjoy sampling the work of gummy art thanks to artist Katy Hargrove. The candies were made using carefully crafted silicone molds to replicate the elegant sculpture in miniature form. The molds were then filled with melon-flavored Koolaid and gelatin as deliciously edible pop culture treats perfect for any fan.
