OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- New technology at Oak Park Mall is turning the whole family into candy makers.

The Magic Candy Factory is offering a fun opportunity for families to enjoy a sweet treat while teaching their kids about science.

"Science when executed perfectly is indistinguishable from magic," Melissa Snover, who is originally from Kansas City, said. "And we want this technology and this 3-D printing to become so easy to use and so enjoyable to use."

According to Snover, each individual design has 35,000 lines of code, which our system makes for you automatically.

Each design is unique. Everything is also vegetarian and free from all allergens such as gluten, soy, dairy, eggs, and nuts so everyone so those who have to follow a specialty diet can come in and enjoy Magic Candy.

"When I was developing regular candies, I had to make them on a big line," Snover said. "And I was making hundreds of thousands of the same thing, and it's really frustrating. Because I want to make things that make people happy. And with the Magic Candy Factory we now can make something customized unique every time."

The store opens fully to the public Wednesday, Nov. 9.
