The world right now is in a modern place. We can't deny the fact that the way of living now is more advanced than it was ten years ago. Proof stare at you from everywhere, like your hi-tech gadgets plus the growing trend of everything online - from shopping to food delivery. Now with the latest 3D technology spreading its wings we hear it even spread to food like the 3D candy.

Candy you say, as in edible candies not just decoration? That is probably what some are thinking. Of course when you first hear about the concept of 3D and food in a single sentence you end up skeptical. However, what seems to be impossible before is now a possibility.

We do have the technology so what's stopping us? That seems to be the driving force behind the latest offering of Katjes Magic Candy Factory. The chain of stores is now offering their customers a chance to have personalized candy to the next level- by designing it themselves and printing their own candy.

According to Melissa Snover, their 3D printer lets anyone from a child as young as three years to a 79-year-old interact with a tablet computer; which is then used on printing their own 3D candy.

The Creator and Managing Director of Katjes Magic Candy Factory also told Digital Trends that almost anything can be done. The customers can write words, draw whatever they fancy and even upload photos and logos - this is kind of neat when we think about it especially for businesses.

The chosen designs are then turned by the system into candy. After the design selection, the customer can choose from eight different all-natural vegan colors and flavors. That's not all as the options are allergen-free, Halal, Kosher and Hindu friendly as well.

The options currently available are sublime strawberry, ripe raspberry, marvelous mango, luscious lemon, beautiful blackcurrant, elegant elderberry, gorgeous apple, and tasty tropical blue. There's also an additional option that let the customer choose whether they want their 3D candy to have a sour, fizzy or bitter finish. Finally, the machine makes the candy just before their very eyes in less than five minutes.

Snover said that she hopes that aside from developing the Katjes Magic Factory brand that it can also help open people's eyes to culinary possibilities of additive manufacturing. She believes that candy is the perfect medium to start consumers on the journey of understanding, accepting, and enjoying 3D printed food. Which she says is still very futuristic in many ways.

Candy has always been about fun shapes and colors which is why it makes more sense 3D printing it rather than having a 3D print Sunday dinner or a chicken roasts, Snelgrove explains further. Snelgrove was first known for creating the world's first vegan gummy candy brand. She sold it later on before joining family run Katje's.

Meanwhile, Katjes Magic Candy Factory brand is seen growing rapidly. Their stores can now be found in Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Missouri, New York, Salt Lake City, and Seattle in America. It also has stores in Berlin, Dubai, and Dublin. And just this Thursday, Nov. 24 it has officially launched stores in eight shopping centers across England, Scotland, and Wales.
