Product Description:

I don't know very many people who would turn down an opportunity to fit candy into their curriculum, and cooking and baking is an awesome way to learn about chemistry. This kit gives you instructions to learn about transfer of heat, volume, phases of matter, freezing and melting point, boiling and condensation, crystallization, solutions, chemical reactions, and more. The kit includes special tools, molds for chocolate and gummy candies, cutters, paper baking cups, lollipop sticks, candy thermometer, colored foil sheets, and candy labels. Use this kit along with your own ingredients to make chocolate shapes and lollipops that look like cars, ladybugs, Santa or a bunny; make gummy dolphins, berries, dinosaurs, bats, bears, and fruit slices; or make a solid chocolate egg to give as a gift. The molds are hard plastic and are high quality like those used by confectioners, and the dipping fork and sugar spatula are great specialty tools. The experiment manual includes recipes, explanations, and colored illustrations. This is a great kit for learning chemistry and introducing candy making to your children. ~ Donna

This is a gift from my son to my Daughter. They will probably both enjoy learning about candy making and chemistry using this kit.

My third grader loves candy and chemistry, so this was a perfect fit. We have already made some of the gummy candies and had a blast!

What are the necessary ingredients you need to purchase to do the experiments?
User on Dec 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The list is LONG. I was surprised when I got the set & needed to spend megabucks to get everything needed, but I felt like I had to at that point because it was a gift for my son's birthday. It is definitely a budget buster (but I suppose you could just buy what you needed for one experiment at a time as you were able, although many of the experiments go together as extensions of what was already done.) To get to your question, I really can't remember everything (it was over a year ago)...but I hope that it helps you to know that it's a long list. :)
How many candy experiments are there in this kit?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't know the exact number, but there are different levels of difficulty/experiments. The set is really about learning chemistry involved in candymaking. Need to be able to follow a lot of directions. Best for ages 12 and up. You will also need to purchase some items to do experiments.

Fun projects - not much Chemistry
My son (8) gave this to my daughter (10) as a Christmas present. They have both been studying chemistry this year. There were several fun little projects making candy....but not much chemistry. It is a great idea to pull in the kitchen and some chemistry principles and what kid can resist candy. There were some special tools for making the candy which made it a bit easier. We tried two candies, but neither recipe worked. Mostly this made a great gift, but you can find most of the recipes and concepts online.
