How do you share your data with others?  If we print data jewelry we can show it to our friends but it gets expensive if we send them home with the jewelry.  An inexpensive way of making sharable data objects is to make candies.  To do this we printed small plastic graphs and then made a food safe silicon mold of these models (shown below). We then used the molds to make hard candies and gumdrops.  These graphs are based on mice that recovered from a malaria infection and plot circulating red blood cells by reticulocyte concentrations; we call these  candies “resilmints”.
