Because apparently Americans don't have easy enough access to junk food, soon getting a candy bar could be as easy as hitting "print."
3D Systems announced a deal with Hershey's Thursday to collaborate on developing a 3-D printer that makes chocolate and other edible products.
In a statement, 3D Systems said making printers that print chocolate is a good way to help the relatively new technology go mainstream. Hershey sees it as a great delivery system for its products.
"Whether it's creating a whole new form of candy or developing a new way to produce it, we embrace new technologies such as 3-D printing as a way to keep moving our timeless confectionery treats into the future," said William Papa, head of research and development at Hershey, in a statement.

Awesome! I know what my wife is getting for valentines day!
Since the 3-D printer isn't going to be cheap to begin with, i'm hoping they have a fine selection of premium dark chocolate to work with in addition to the Hershey's.
Ah. More creativity up the Hershey highway.
