It was worth it when suddenly he said.... "If i have no pulse mom, does that mean my heart isn't working"? My response was .. "You got it buddy. No pulse, no heartbeat". He grinned and all was good. :)
The one that simply amazed both of us was the fizzy ones. We were astonished at the sheer amount of bubbles that came shooting out the fizzy when it was placed in hot water. Like the M&M it disappeared in no time flat. The fizzy when put into cold water bubbled slowly and over time hollowed out in the middle. The lad thought this quite interesting and BEGGED to eat it.
The one that disgusted us...the gobstoppers. MOST candies..the water tasted sweet or at least sort of like the candy. Gobstoppers...just...ICK...and hence forth I have NO desire to EVER eat one again.
Halloween Candy when placed in hot water exuded this white waxy film (looked icky but the lad said... MMMM). AND caramels dissolved fairly quickly BUT left this sticky spot behind on the cup that took a couple doses of oil to get off. Smeared all over the cup.
Rolo pops on a stick...dissolved slowly in cold water, fairly fast in hot but the rolo part didn't dissolve. the lad put it in his mouth and immediately spit it out. YUCK! It was a very pale colour which made me wonder if the hot water sucked the colour/flavour out?
Anyways, some pics. They might be a bit jumbled, I'll try to comment.
SO.. we made a compass!
