These candy science experiments will totally wow your kids.. and will give you something to do with all that candy they get at holidays!
When candy corn sneaks into the aisles of the grocery store at the start of the Fall season, it seems like there is an onslaught of sugar overloaded holiday all the way until the Easter Bunny drops his load of eggs in the front yard.
That a lot of sugar– Marshmallow Peeps, Valentine’s Day chocolates, chocolate coins, Christmas fudge.. and don’t even get me started on the massive Halloween candy haul.
