3D Candy Printers Let Customers Create Their Own Confections
The Magic Candy Factory Printer can create tailored treats in under five minutes
3D printers have been used to make everything from automobiles to performance sportswear, but now the instruments are being used for something more ‘tasteful.’ Confectionary supplier Katjes Fassin is teaming up with Dylan’s Candy Bar to bring its 3D candy printers to American shores, after its astounding success over in Dubai, Dublin and Berlin.
Having popped up in select DCB locations this month, customers will soon be able to order customized goodies online.
The 3D candy printers can create tailored treats in under five minutes in eight different colors and flavors, with the ability to add text and optional “magic” finishes such as glitter or fizzy dust. The natural fruit and vegetable extracts are mixed together to form a special printable material, which is designed via tablet prior to sending to print. All gummy treats are vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free, and will cost a flat rate of $20 to produce.
