The ‘Magic Candy Factory’ creates 3D printed gummies which are vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free.
As Design Taxi reports, the novelty candy shop debuted August 28 and is located at Katjes Café Grün-Ohr in Berlin, Germany.
Customers can choose from a number of different 3D shapes and colors to create their perfect candy experience.
When a design is chosen – which can be anything from a butterfly to a pyramid, the Magic Candy factory lays out lines of hot flavored gum candy. The machine uses a very special and unique fruit gum liquid to produce 7 colors and flavors and 10 different shapes.
While you might not think such a cool treat could be good for you, the gummy mixtures are actually made from vegetable-based gelling agents and all-natural fruit and vegetable extracts.
That means the gummies are gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan so that people from all walks of life can enjoy the unique candy experience.
Each novelty fruit gummy costs about $5 each. Or, one can script out a message for $11 a word.
The candies can be printed in 3-10 minutes, whereas competing machines take up to an hour.
“The benefit of the experience in store for the whole family is that children and adults can learn about the technology of 3D printing and ingredients in food,” shared Melissa Snover, the Managing Director of Katjes Fassin UK. “Other confectioners haven’t been able to bring anything like this to market, but we’ve spent many months developing this technology to be fast, educational and fun.”
