When Bears Go Soft

A Brief History of Gummy Bears

Molten potassium chlorate is a strong oxidizing agent that reacts violently with sugar. Lucky for us, Gummy Bears have lots of sugar in them.

Aaaaand in this corner, disturbingly wearing no trunks whatsoever and weighing in at a whopping 5 pounds and 12,600 calories, the Sugar Coma from Oklahoma, the Leader of the Nation of Cavity Formation, the Treat to Lead Us to Diabeetus, won't you please put your hands together for... The World's Largest Gummy Bear!!

There is much more at Vat19's Gummy Bear site, including the semi-disgusting video these shots were captured from.
