Believe It or Not: Eminem in M&M’s

Eminem has been immortalized in chocolate. Artist Enrique Ramos has created a portrait of the famous rapper made out of what else but M&M’s.

The Marshall Mathers portrait was crafted from more than 1,000 individual M&M’s and measures 40 inches by 30 inches. It took more than eight pounds of M&M’s to create, quite possibly making it the highest-calorie work of art known to man.

Ramos’ creation has been acquired by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! to grace the halls of one of their museums. It will be added to a collection that includes Princess Diana made from lint, The Last Supper in burnt toast, and Michael Jackson done in gumballs.

“Our customers have a pretty good eye for art. They won’t be disappointed by Eminem in M&M’s,” said Tim O’Brien, VP of Communications for Ripley’s Believe It or Not! “This thing looks good enough to eat.”
