If you fantasized about wandering through Willy Wonka's elaborate chocolate factory growing up, your mind is about to be blown. Boutique candy shop chain Dylan's Candy Bar is bringing the magic of Roald Dahl's classic novel to life by teaming up with UK-based company Katjes's Magic Candy Factory, known for their unique edible products, to launch the first-ever 3D candy printer in the country. Unlike other high-tech devices, the efficiency of Katjes's machine is unparalleled: custom candies can be churned out in just under 5 minutes.

The way it works is simple: First, the device heats up the ingredients—all vegan, gluten, and dairy-free—then makes them into specific shapes using coded instructions sent via an in-store tablet. Customers can choose from over 100 designs, including names, self-portraits, or important questions. "I've seen people propose!" says founder Dylan Lauren. The flavors are also unique, ranging from elderberry to black currant. Still, Lauren insists: "It's not all about eating candyit's about experiencing it. No matter how old you are, you should always feel like a kid in a candy store." Amen!
