Ford Motor Company today revealed an all-new miniature chocolate and peppermint candy Mustangs made with a 3D printer. This is the first time Ford has 3D-printed a miniature vehicle model that you can actually snack on.
Ford teamed up with 3D Systems and its edible branch, The Sugar Lab, in Los Angeles, to make mini chocolate Mustangs. 3D Systems’ treats also include 3D-printed sugar candies in such flavors as white peppermint and sour apple.
The process began with a CAD model of the all-new Mustang from the Ford design studios. 3D Systems programmed the digital version of the pony car into its new printers designed to create edible treats. After only a few hours, a 4-inch-long, 2-inch-tall Mustang-shaped confection emerged.
While Ford commissioned the yummy-looking chocolatey Mustangs for this Valentine’s Day, buying some for your sweetheart might be tougher because this is a one-off deal for now. Ford is in talks to potentially license the Mustang candy, should it find a solid reception.
