Look what happens when a red gummy bear encounters Potassium Chlorate

Chemistry can be fun. Gummy bears can be fun. To be honest, I’ve no idea whether potassium chlorate is usually fun. I suspect most things with “chlorate” in their name tend to be more serious than fun. However, that should stop us – or some brave soul at the St. Albans Science Department – mixing a gummy bear with potassium cholorate to see if it’s fun.

Here goes!

Well. What do you think?

Fun or oh-my-god-that-looked-dangerous? Or both? Yeah. I thought so too!
