Mutilate Candy Gummy Bears with Exploratory Science Experiments

Who could resist a gummy bear?  Those rubbery little candy creatures shaped like a bear are just too cute and too delicious to pass up.  If you can't get any enjoyment out of those gelatin-based confectioneries, then you're simple not human.  Even scientists love them, but not for their seductively sweet properties...

If you've ever wondered what a gummy bear looks like frozen in liquid nitrogen, you've come to the right place.  If you want to see those saccharine, ursine candies liquefied using a high-frequency sonication, you're in for a real treat.  And if you're curious to know the density of those gummies, you'll find that out, too.
