If you really like chewing gum, Amazon will sell you several months’ worth for an extra 25% off today.
A helluva lot of sugar and a helluva lot of machinery. That’s what it takes to make candy canes and it’s very close to being a magical process, as taking something as large as what candy canes start at and shaping it down to the classic skinny hook is so very impressive.
I was never a pillowcase kid. Fill the sheets that I put my head on with the goods, risking an errant Mr. Goodbar besmirching my sleeping quarters? No thanks. Besides, a pillowcase would need to go in the wash eventually. My plastic pumpkin was a dedicated trick-or-treating device. And somehow, it managed to stay…
Trick-or-treat night draws close, and with it come the warnings about the dangers (hidden razor blades and saturated fats) lurking in your candy—all the while ignoring the real threat at hand: that house around the corner handing out full-size candy bars.
Just in time for Halloween, University of Glasgow medical student Mike McCormick released diagrams of the female and male reproductive systems made out of all the kinds of candy I hated to get when I went trick-or-treating as a kid.
Kids are evil. You’d think free candy on Halloween would be enough, but no—these middle schoolers show us that there is no limit to what they’ll do for a little extra candy.
Halloween is nigh, which means it’s once again time to spend an agonizing twenty minutes in the snack aisle at your grocery store asking yourself a soul-searching question: Which type of candy should I buy?
I’ve never really lived in a neighborhood that drew a lot of Trick-or-Treaters, but that doesn’t keep me from buying Halloween candy. Obviously, this is a task I take very seriously because, even if zero children visit my house, I want to get the as much delicious, seasonal sugar as I can for my money.
If you’re planning on spending Halloween watching horror movies and passing out candy to trick or treaters, Amazon’s taking an extra 20% off select Mars candy packs today. Just be sure to grab multiple bags; Halloween’s still a few weeks away, so you’re probably going to end up devouring at least one yourself.
It’s not just electronics and other product manufacturing that 3D printers promise to revolutionize. The machines might one day replace all the appliances in your kitchen when it comes to making dinner, or more importantly, making candy.
The craftsmanship of candy. The art of an edible cup. The carving of a jawbreaker into a shot glass. It’s a thing that you never thought would make any sense but once the jawbreaker starts spinning on the lathe and getting shaved down to expose the different layers of its colors, you realize that all shot glasses…
There are dieticians out there who will tell you it’s a bad idea to eat pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner—and they’re probably right. You at least need to mix things up for one of those meals, so when lunch rolls around, why not go with this eight-inch Gummy Pizza instead of a pepperoni pie?
Everyone loves Lego bricks. Everyone loves gummy bears. So why not combine the two to make gummy Lego bricks that you can eat and build stuff with? Grant Thompson shows you how a few simple ingredients and a little bit of creativity can make fun gummy Lego bricks that are both better than gummy bears and Lego bricks…
My favorite foe for the vaunted red hot nickel ball is food items. The bigger and more ridiculous and goofier the food, the better the destruction. Take this burning of a giant jawbreaker, it crushes the exterior and then starts boiling and bubbling the gooey green innards. It's like alien candy blood leaking out.
I don't see anything excessive about this at all. Instead, I see a chocolate fountain I'd like to install at my house. I now crave a giant chocolate Easter egg I could spend 40 days and 40 nights eating. And I want every meal I eat to be put together by these joy givers who artfully assemble this humungous…
First, let's start by dispelling a somewhat popular myth that more or less goes like this:
One of my favorite things: seeing the process of how things are made from things I've never ever wondered how they get made. Take for instance this awesome hand made candy cane, which starts as dark and yellow sugar goop that looks unrecognizable.
Using a slight variation on the famous high-speed camera set-up by Doc Edgerton, the Edgerton Center at MIT shot a .22 caliber rifle through three peanut butter cups and captured this perfect image. Three peanut butter cups were harmed in the photographing of this photograph. [MIT]
Sumatra and Borneo are the only places in the world where orangutans – the so-called "red apes" – live in the wild. Both species are endangered, the Sumatran one critically so. And your Halloween candy could be, at least in part, to blame.
