I Want to Try this at Home: Giant Gummy Bear of Flaming Horror

gummyYou can’t really tell from the screen-grab but this is about five pounds of gummy bear reacting with potassium chlorate. If you were wondering, no this probably isn’t safe to try at home. Or anywhere else. But yes, I would enjoy nothing more than trying this at home. It just seems like some wholesome entertainment.

the folks at Vat19, the guys who make these giant gummy bears. Decided to show off what happens when you mix the poor bear with potassium chlorate which reacts violently with things like latex, PVC, paper, and sugar. Seeing as how a five-pound gummy bear contains roughly five pounds of sugar this creates an awesome reaction.

If you do get to try this at home, please… invite me over.
