Science Moment

I was just holding some M&Ms in my hand and the candy shells got a little sticky, which would have made me think that M&Ms’ marketers are big fat liars, except for that I remembered showing that (in at least one instance) the shells really were quite impervious to high heat.  (It’s here, about halfway down the page.)  So my new working hypothesis is that, while the candy shells are resisitant to heat, they are not resistant to dissolving in water.  So if you have damp, sweaty hands, you can expect your M&Ms to get messy.

This concludes this Science Moment.

  1. I am so getting educated by blogs—about the important things, like candy.

    I’ll bet you could turn this into a winning science project!

    M & Ms and Reices pieces are the only way I can send chocolate to Guatemala. Everything else, including Sugar Babies arrives in a melted, gloppy blob!
