When I was a teen, I left a bag of gummy bears in the car on a sunny day and ended up with a bag of multicoloured gummy goop. I dealt with the material by putting it in the fridge for a while then cutting the resulting blob into useable hunks.
Inspired by this experience, the kids and I duplicated the melting and refrigeration phases yesterday. Today we did the cutting and sampling. Mixed reviews from the kids as the material is quite gooey.
