3D-Printed Vegan Candy Selfies Debut for Christmas

Vegan shoppers can snap selfies and eat them at seven Magic Candy Factory pop-ups across England.

German candy company Katjes announced last week the arrival of its “Magic Candy Factory”—a 3D food printer—in seven stores across England. The factory is equipped with a camera which customers can use to print vegan fruit- and vegetable-based gummy candy “selfies” in less than five minutes. “We’ve created a product which merges the nation’s love for technology and candy,” Katjes managing director Melissa Snover told media outlet Cambridge News. “It allows our customers to see first-hand how we create our unique 3D sweets.” Through December 23, customers can also print personalized Christmas cards dusted with glitter. Katjes introduced its 3D-printed candies to the United States last year in partnership with toy store Go! Games and Toys, which installed the brand’s Magic Candy Factory at its retail outlets and online shop.
