The Incredible Edibles maker operated on the same principle as the Thingmaker toy machine — add a goo to a mold, heat it up, and then you will have a colorful shaped little thing. The main difference is that the toy creator used a plastic material (“Plastigoop”), while the Edibles machine used a sugarless liquid/gel (“Gobble-DeGoop”).

To hear the old-timers tell it, there wasn’t much difference between the two — in other words, lousy taste was a common complaint among those who tried eating the gummy sweets. But, hey — they looked cool!
