If you’re the kind of person who has thought to yourself, “Man, candy is so good, but it sure isn’t as customizable as I’d like it to be,” then you’re in luck. Today, the world’s first 3D candy printer has set up shop at Dylan’s Candy Bar, that sugar addict’s dream that sells sweets in every imaginable hue, flavor and shape.
Available for use in Dylan’s flagship Upper East Side location as well at the Union Square store, the machine, designed by the UK-based Katjes Magic Candy Factory, prints custom gummy candies in under five minutes. Customers can choose from eight flavors including strawberry and blackcurrant, then select from more than 100 designs including gummy greeting cards with custom inscriptions. To finish off the edible art, they can add a sheen of edible glitter or sweet-and-sour dust.
Feeling flush? Each custom candy costs a flat $20. But don’t worry, once you spend your (real) dough you can just print some fake (edible) bills to tuck inside your wallet.
