Science in the Kitchen

Think about this experiment the next time you reach for a bowl of candy! 

After watching the last episode of Jaime Oliver’s Food Revolution, Bruce and I decided to do an experiment with some left over candy.

We put about five or six pieces of candy into two glass jars and filled the jar with about 1/2 of water.  Then we set the timer for five minutes.

This is what the jars looked like when the timer went off.  Does anybody want to eat some candy?  How about that colored sludge water to go with it?  Yuck!  This simple experiment really left an impression on Bruce, who immediately asked to throw the rest of the candy away.
