If, like us, you can’t quite bare to carry out without sugar now that sweet, sweet Easter has been and gone, don’t fear – the lovely folk at Fenwick Newcastle still have treats in store for you this week.
Pop by the Food Hall and you’ll discover the world’s first 3D candy printing machine – a new and innovative toy designed to take confectionary to the next level.
Katjes Magic Candy Factory is the first of its kind (the fastest 3D printer in the world), allowing kids and grown-ups to make ‘sweet selfies’ and fun shapes, write messages, upload snaps or company logos, and even draw custom candies, before watching them come to life in minutes.
The process is as simple as one, two, three. Simply choose your design or message, snap your best side or upload a favourite pic from your mobile, decide on your flavour (there are eight to choose from, including elderberry, mango, lemon and raspberry), and choose your finishing dust (‘sour’, ‘glitter’ or ‘fizzy’). The rest, as the Katjes clan say, is magic. You’ll see your custom treats being made immediately – and you can even have a time-lapse video of the process sent to your email.
Adam Barber, senior buyer at Fenwick’s Food Hall, said: “We’re passionate about great confectionery, so we are really excited to announce this exclusive launch with Katjes Magic Candy Factory – which will run until April 23. This concept will be a fun experience for children and adults alike.”
The vibrant gummies are made of all-natural fruit and vegetable extracts, making them vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and also halal and kosher-friendly.
Melissa Snover, founder of Katjes Fassin UK Ltd, said: “I have always been a huge fan of Fenwick – it’s a British institution – so to be able to partner up with them to debut our 3D Candy Printers for the first time in the UK is a dream come true.”
Visit the pop-up while you can – it’s there until April 23!
