Soon You Can 3D Print Your Own Hershey’s Bars!
Yes, it’s true. 3D printing is all the rage. We called it way back in early 2012 (#humblebrag), but 2014 is the year it will start going mainstream. Earlier this month at CES, the biggest electronics conference held in Las Vegas, we saw more than 30 new types of 3D printing technologies! One in particular, the ChefJet, caught our eye. This thing can print edible sugar, meaning its users will be able to design and make their own candy, any time they want. (I certainly know what my trick-or-treaters are getting this year!)
“We believe that innovation is key to delivering relevant, compelling consumer experiences with our iconic brands,” said William Papa, Hershey’s vice president and chief research and development officer. “Whether it’s creating a whole new form of candy or developing a new way to produce it, we embrace new technologies such as 3-D printing as a way to keep moving our timeless confectionery treats into the future.” (photo: Yahoo)
