Kids love Halloween because they get to dress up, act like a monster, and be rewarded with free candy. Then you become an adult, and suddenly have to deal with little monsters demanding free sweets. Halloween is suddenly less fun, unless you build a Lego robot to deal with trick-or-treaters.

David Heyman, the producer of the Harry Potter film series — including upcoming spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them — has a new fantasy franchise in his sights. Warner Bros. has just secured the rights to all things Willy Wonka from Roald Dahl's estate, and is teaming with Heyman to make a prequel about the character.
At Toy Fair earlier this year we were surprised to discover that edible lolly bubbles were not only a thing, they were also surprisingly tasty. But why stop at lolly flavours? The next time you find yourself headed to a tedious children's birthday party, you can now whip up a batch of edible boozy bubbles instead — just keep them away from kids.
When you're a kid, there's an endless list of things you're not supposed to eat, and that includes bubbles. But apparently the science of bubble solution has come a long way over the years, because a company called Little Kids, Inc. has succeeded in concocting bubbles you can not only eat, but are actually surprisingly tasty.
It's not just electronics and other product manufacturing that 3D printers promise to revolutionise. The machines might one day replace all the appliances in your kitchen when it comes to making dinner, or more importantly, making candy.
The craftsmanship of candy. The art of an edible cup. The carving of a jawbreaker into a shot glass.

Grant Thompson shows you how a few simple ingredients and a little bit of creativity can make fun gummy Lego bricks that are both better than gummy bears and Lego bricks by themselves.
Video: My favourite foe for the vaunted red hot nickel ball is food items. The bigger and more ridiculous and goofier the food, the better the destruction. Take this burning of a giant jawbreaker; it crushes the exterior and then starts boiling and bubbling the gooey green innards. It's like alien candy blood leaking out.
I don't see anything excessive about this at all. Instead, I see a chocolate fountain I'd like to install at my house. I now crave a giant chocolate Easter egg I could spend 40 days and 40 nights eating. And I want every meal I eat to be put together by these joy givers who artfully assemble this humungous giant-sized snack.
Lollyphile's new beer lollipops are many things: the epitome of human innovation, the height of candy science, and unfortunately, alcohol-free. But how do they do it and — more importantly — how do they taste? We talked to Lollyphile founder Jason Darling (and tried 'em for ourselves) to find out.
