Candy is more than a sugary snack. With candy, you can become a scientific detective. You can test sweets for secret ingredients or float an "m" from M&M's. You can spread candy dyes into rainbows, or pour rainbow layers of coloured water. You'll learn how to turn sweets into crystals, sink marshmallows, or send fizzy drinks spouting skyward. You can even make your own lightning.

Candy Experimentsteaches kids a new use for their sweets and candy. As children try eye-popping experiments, such as growing enormous gummy worms and turning cotton candy into slime, they'll also be learning science.

Candy Experimentscontains 70 science experiments, 29 of which have never been previously published. Chapter themes include secret ingredients, blow it up, sink and float, squash it, and other fun experiments about colour, density, and heat. Each experiment includes basic explanations of the relevant science, such as how cotton candy sucks up water because of capillary action, how Pixy Stix cool water because of an endothermic reaction, and how gummy worms grow enormous because of the water-entangling properties.

"'Candy Experiments' is perfect for curious children of all ages, parents, home-schooling families or for teachers to use in the classroom." (Wendy Jessen, Deseret News)
(Candy Experiments) "My younger son, who is 4, loves open-ended play where he can just pour and mix and add candy as he desires, watching the colors emerge or the solutions bubble," said Viera mother of two Courtney Charles. "The older one, who is 7, loves doing actual experiments like soaking candy with leters to watch the letters float, testing for acid in the candy with baking soda, comparing candy densitites, or creating a color wheel by mixing various colors of candy." (Katie Parsons, Florida Today)
