Cadbury Unveils Chocolate 3D Printer So Your Sweetest Dreams Can Come True

Fans of Roald Dahl’s universe might salivate at his descriptions of a magical chocolate factory. In real life, chocoholics can print candies to their hearts’ desires, courtesy of Cadbury.

On 7 July, which happened to be World Chocolate Day, the confectionery maker introduced the world’s first Cadbury milk chocolate 3D printer in Melbourne.

Shoppers of the Myer Chadstone department store can now feast their eyes on 3D-printed ‘Dairy Milk’ chocolate charms produced to their liking. Choices include shapes, letters and Australia icons such as kangaroos and flip-flops.

According to the company, the machine was shipped over from the UK to make its debut in the Australian city, and will stay up until 28 July.

A set of two 3D-printed milk chocolate charms is priced at A$8 (US$5.60), while those with a sweet tooth can purchase four charms at A$15 (US$10.48). It remains to be said if the 3D printer will travel to other parts of the world, so stay tuned.
