Gummy bears are so 2015. Chic candy retail chain Dylan's Candy Bar just made a deal with a U.K. confectioner to offer custom 3-D printed gummy candies.

Think: a gummy portrait of your folks for their golden wedding anniversary.

Dylan's, based in Manhattan, partnered with Katjes Magic Candy Factory to bring four 3-D gummy printers to the U.S. Shops in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami will offer the service.

Dylan's will offer more than 100 designs, but consumers can dream up their own works, by writing words or drawing their own candy creations, according to a statement.

Eight different color combinations are available in traditional flavors like strawberry, apple and raspberry, but there will also be U.K. favorites like elderberry and black currant. More flavor options are expected to roll out based on different seasons and locations.

"We can't wait to dazzle our customers with the magic creativity of Willy Wonka's factory, merged with modern-day technology," said Dylan Lauren, owner of Dylan's Candy Bar, in a statement.

Each candy design will set you back around $20; they're all vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free.
