Science in the Kitchen Revisited

Last week Bruce and I did an experiment with a popular candy, that left our whole family thinking twice about eating anything with artificial colors.  Check it out for yourself here: https://teachingmybabytoread.com/2011/06/13/science-in-the-kitchen/

Today we revisited the same experiment, this time using the so-called “natural” version of the candy, sold in the bulk bins of our local coop for a whopping $6.19 a lb.

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.  Not exactly appetizing, is it?

Here is the picture of the experiment done with the conventional candy.

Here is the picture with the natural candy.  As a result of these activities, Bruce is really thinking twice about eating anything with what he terms “weird colors”.
