Kitchen Hack: Exploding Skittles

This hack began as a myth debunking project.  I had heard that if you froze skittles it turns them into pop rocks.  Sounded simple enough.  After some tasty trials, I discovered that it is not altogether false.  The effect is pretty subtle and doesn’t last long enough to be very useful, but it does actually work!

Hack #7: Pop goes the rainbow

Freeze skittles for at least 6 hours, then eat them.  As they warm in your mouth, they produce a pop rock type effect.  Just be careful when chewing, as freezing skittles makes them very hard!

Fun, even if just to try something new!

Freeze skittles and they pop, but just a little!
