Chocoalate...Sink and Float

What's better than chocolate?  not much!

Here's another experiment brought to you by Candy Experiments. 

Most candy sinks in water, because sugar is denser than water. 
But some candy floats. Why?

This experiment is so easy...all you need is some leftover chocolate candy and water.  Drop the candy in the clear glass and observe what happens. 



Here's what Loralee at Candy experiments says is happening:

"Some kinds of candy, such as Kit Kats, 3 Musketeers, and marshmallows have air trapped inside. This makes them float.  "

I have created another recording sheet to go along with this experiment!  Hope you can use it!
