3D Magic Candy
Where: 8 The Green House (by the oval pool), The Custard Factory, Gibb Street, Digbeth, B9 4AA
Magic Candy Factory is a UK first, and it’s right here in Digbeth!
Katjes Magic Candy Factory is home to the world’s first 3D gummy candy printer. That’s right – 3D printed sweets. In any design and colour you want. Magic.
Each print takes less than five minutes (see the super-speed video below), costs just £10, and uses one of eight tasty vegan flavours made from fruit and vegetable extracts. You can then choose to give your creation a coat of glitter, fizzy or sour magic spray! The product is free from gelatin, gluten, nuts, dairy, and is Halal and Kosher friendly, making it practically suitable for everyone to enjoy.
I never thought I’d see the day when I’d hold an edible, printed version of the Digbeth is Good logo… and it really is tasty – I too was a disbeliever until I tried it! The technology used in making the 3D printed candy is ingenious and has won many awards, including Innovation of the Year at ISM, the world’s largest trade fair for sweets and snacks.
The second concept on offer in the Custard Factory shop is the magical pick-n-mix, which offers over 45 different types of vegan, all-natural, and allergen-free sweetie goodness. As well as being incredibly fun and customisable, allowing you to finish your jar with a choice of ribbon and personalised label, the prices are incredibly reasonable, starting at just £3 for a bauble – the candle size pictured is £5.
The Magic Candy Factory is planning a national roll out of bricks and mortar shops and an online store, following the success of the beta shop in Digbeth. Before it does become mainstream, I’d encourage you to give the friendly team a visit so you can prove that Digbeth had it first!
