Just in time for
Wednesday Christmas, a U.K. company has come up with a way to combine a classic chocolate lollipop with your beautiful face.
That’s right, London-based start-up Candy Mechanics can make 3D chocolate treats of human heads. Kinda creepy? Maybe. Kinda awesome? Definitely.
Candy Mechanics officially launched today, and while your chocolate head on a stick won’t be available until December, their first product — personalized chocolate slabs called candy cards — are available now. But if you’re the patient type and can wait a few more weeks, here’s what you need to know, according to The Independent, about making your very own lollipop.
First, upload a video of yourself to the Candy Mechanics website.
From that, the team can start the process by scanning all angles with a 3D scanner, then printing it.
Afterwards, your head is transformed into a lollipop mould.
Finally, the chocolate head is removed and given a quick spray of edible gold shimmer. Ta-da!
If you want to know how they get the chocolate looking like you, it’s all thanks to their magical drill that gets it just so.
And in case you’re wondering what happens to all the excess chocolate shavings, Candy Mechanics collects it all and melts it down so it can be used on future faces. They use different types of chocolate, and there’s an option to add various sprinkles and toppings as well.
It’ll run you £20 ($35 CAD) for a box of three but, sadly, the lollipops and candy cards only ship within the U.K… for now. But we’ll be the first ones ordering once they expand globally.
