Katjes candy shop in Berlin, Germany is now offering a revolutionary way to indulge your sweet tooth: via their 3D printer aptly named the ‘Magic Candy Factory,’ which they claim is the first to print edible treats. While such a concept may seem like a notion straight out of the zany tale Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the video above will indeed show you how the process results in a fruit gum type candy to consume after watching it come to life before your very eyes. Candy shapes include octopuses, pyramids, and forty additional designs, words and fruit flavors that customers can select via a tablet, all while the shop touts the concept that “science actually is magic.” The experience of creating your own candy costs between five euros for shapes and ten euros per word. Pretty sweet.
