What 3D-Printed Candy Actually Tastes Like

We had volunteers try geometric treats. Here’s what they had to say.


A dozen BuzzFeed staff members tried neon sours and geometric peppermints, made using a 3D printer.

Candy of the future, or trendy novelty item? Only one way to find out: have a mystery taste test.

Initial reactions varied:


"Sour Patch/SweeTarts/Kool-Aid powder mashed in my mouth."


"Reminiscent of diner mints."


"The size was deceiving. I expected to have more candy in my mouth."


"I started frowning pretty much the second it went in my mouth. Whatever that was, it's on a short list of things I don't plan to eat again."

The candy was unanimously voted as looking incredibly cool:


"It was beautiful."


"I liked it. 10/10 would eat the sour one again."


"It was one of the coolest-looking candies I've eaten, though I needed confirmation that it was candy."


"I liked how it looked, not so much how it tasted."

Everyone guessed sugar correctly, with some interesting variations:


"Pixie Dust."


"A Lifesaver that — somehow — went stale."


"Sugar, maybe with some paper plates mixed in."


(The real ingredients: Sugar, starch, water, natural and artificial flavor and colorants, alcohol [<1% by weight].)
