Adults probably remember the old saying, “you will eat it, before it eats you,” especially when children refuse to eat their vegetables or other healthy meals. Well in the case of candy, the students proved, the candy will eat you.

This experiment tested the effects of warhead and airhead candies on teeth. Students simply placed egg shells in a bowl filled with water and warhead candy. In a separate bowl, they placed egg shells and airhead candy in water. Both candies dissolved in the water and after one week, noticeable changes occurred to the egg shells.

The warhead egg shells turned blue while the airhead candy egg shells remained white. However, the airhead candy egg shells had developed noticeable bumps on the shell. To take this experiment one step further, students then soaked their baby teeth in the warhead water for a week.Airhead candy the teeth turned black. The results of the project proved candy does affect your teeth.
