Did you know there is a lot of science behind making candy? How about that “Red Hots” candies get their heat from a chemical called capsaicin - the same molecule that gives peppers their kick? And when you crunch on Wintergreen Lifesavers, they spark because you are making light with friction similar to the electricity in lightning: You might say you are making a miniature lightning storm in your mouth! Learn about these cool chemical reactions and much more as you become a Science of Fun Stuff Expert on candy!
