Drop a Warhead in baking soda water, and bubbles erupt. Leave a Skittle in water, and the S floats to the surface. Melt a Starburst, and shiny oil spots form. You're doing candy experiments--science experiments with candy.

Melt Halloween candy. Dissolve Valentine hearts. Float Easter Peeps. Or let your kids create their own candy science experiments.

Candy experiments. All candy. All science. All fun.

Good news for chocolate lovers! An analysis of several studies, published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, found association between chocolate consumption and a lower risk of coronary artery disease.



The study pointed to consumption at least once a week, but didn't say what kind. Previous studies show the best benefit comes from eating chocolate that's more than 70% dark. Of course, the sugars and fats in chocolate, especially products like cookies, can lead to worse health, so don't go overboard if you make chocolate your new health food!
