Or at least that’s what Hersheys is thinking.

The chocolate company teamed up with 3D Systems, a company that makes 3D printers. The partnership aims to produce a 3D printer that can print out your own Hersheys kisses or perhaps a chocolate in your own image!

I wonder how it feels like eating a small chocolate version of me. Hmmn… this is exciting. I can make a 3D model of me and my fiancée, print it with this 3D chocolate printer and then give it to her as a gift!

However, this is still years ahead of us. I hope they can do it soon and be affordable for me …or you.

Actually, there were already 3D printed chocolates during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 in Las Vegas. However, the Verge reported that they were very fragile and crumbles in your mouth. That’s not very nice. Chocolates should slowly melt to taste good.

Anyway, Hersheys is surely embracing this new technology. So, should we?
