3D printing has never tasted so sweet. CNN reports that Hershey’s is teaming up with 3D Systems to make a 3D printer that can make chocolates and other sweets that you can custom-design right in your home. This means that, provided you have enough raw chocolate on hand, you can finally fulfill your dream of creating a giant chocolate replica of Michelangelo’s David, Rodin’s Thinker and other famous sculptures… or you can just pop out a ton of Hershey’s Kisses and eat them. A Hershey’s representative tells CNN that the company wants to “embrace new technologies such as 3-D printing as a way to keep moving our timeless confectionery treats into the future.” No release date or pricing information for this incredible product have yet been announced.
