How to 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.
Actually, you'll learn a lot about gummy bears with the science experiments below, thanks to Joanne Loves Science and made scientist C for Chemistry. Not only are gummy bears yummy, they're educational, too!
