    It was a beautiful summer afternoon. The sun was shining, the birds were gay. (seriously, it was weird).

    I knew my fresh order of Colorfabb was on its way today.
    Oh the joy!!

    That new spool feeling that only a 3D printer owner can understand.
    A box full of beautiful, vibrant colors, with unlimited potential.
    A box to change the WORLD!
    (Or RULE them ALL if you're a villain from the dark side...)

    The excitement made even greater, knowing the owner of PrintedSolid Mr Matt Gorton, my friend, colleague, and nomination for 2016 president, goes above and beyond customer service to package every parcel with not just high quality printer food, but also a delicious treat for ourselves.

    The fabled Printed Solid Gummy Bears!!
    A tiny bag of childhood memories with every purchase. What a wonderful addition to such an already beautiful day.

    All that was left was sit and wait for the postman to deliver my box of happiness.
    And he did, there it was, the driver brought my package and left with a smile.

    I tear the box open open like Ralphy on christmas day, only to stand there in silence.... Stunned...

    The sky darkens as the clouds rush in. The birds outside, I realize it was non consensual.
    The day, has lost, it's beauty......

    I lift my last freshly packaged spool of marine blue 2.85 out of the box, looking for that long awaited little bag of gummy treats.. To find this...

    Mr. Mathew Idontknowyourmiddlename Gorton, There are no words............ .......... ..... .. . . . . . . .

    SLANDER! I call foul. I think that you ate those gummy bears and this is part of an elaborate scheme to get more free gummy bears!

    OK. Maybe it was me. Maybe I was hungry. Maybe there will be extra in your next order. I just don't know.

    Between this and the time I chased down the mail truck for you, no doubt that you are in my top 5 most memorable shipping fiascos. This is probably number 1. Number 2 was another time that I chased a mail truck and strained my calf muscle (THAT was an expensive shipping day). Mark is in there too with the poltergeist set screw stealer!

    !!! I just realized my wife packed that order. I remember because she asked if the mixed diameters was correct. So it wasn't me or the helper.

    What do you think that's going to get me? Probably sleeping on the couch if I say anything. :)

    So really, when will they come out with gummy filament? I want to print an army of delicious gummy bears. Big ones, little ones, all colors. Matt, stop hording this new technology and offer your new gummy exotic filament to the world! Buhahahaha!!!

    I got my first package from Matt last week and my young son saw the gummy bears. It may have been worse than seeing an open package, because they were gone from my hand before I knew what happened. He ate them all while I was distracted by my new XXL LCD and all of its new tech allure. He also asked if they make gummy bear filament. That would be awesome and made me laugh until I cried. Kids are great. But seriously, we need to invent gummy filament. And no, printing a gummy bear using ninja flex is not a good substitute.

    When my 5YO comes into the shop, see cleans up any gummy bears and writes notes to my helper telling him not to eat them!

    If gummy bear filament comes out, we will surely stock it.

    @mark tomlinson I still think of this thread every time I pack orders and couldn't resist sending you an @AxisLab special!

    @AxisLab special? Did you send him an empty bag of treats with a note from your 5YO saying your helper ate them all? Lol!

    I love the support you give to this community and the way you run your company. Definitely a stand out. That's why if there is something I need/want that you sell, I will send my business your way. It's not just because of your gummy treat deliciousness at the bottom of the box like a prize at the bottom of a great cereal. It's the passion you have for our hobby. Thank you.
