Candy does a lot of crazy stuff.
If you let gummi bears soak in water, they’ll grow to twice their normal size.
If you put M&M’s or Skittles in warm water, after a few minutes the letters float right off. The color’s gone, too, and you’re left with all-white candy.
As I mentioned before, Wint-O-Green Lifesavers can spark in your mouth. So can just plain sugar. To get the best look at it, crush the candy or sugar with pliers in a dark room after letting your eyes adjust. (Weirdest of all, ice will do it, too. You have to quickly take it out of a freezer and into a dark, hot room). It’s something about the breaking of the crystalline pattern, but nobody fully understands it.
Do you know of anything else candy can do?
Update: I did all these experiments and a few others with my nieces on Halloween, and they all work. Cool!
