Boiled Robin Eggs  
Hershey's makes what is quite possibly my favorite candy. Whoppers Robin Eggs. It kinda sucks that they're only available around Easter.

What are Robin Eggs? Well, you know how they have Almond M&M's, and Peanut M&M's, et all? Well, imagine a Whopper M&M. Make it egg-shaped and multicolored, and that's pretty much it. GOOOD STUFF.

So today, as a highly intentional experiment that had nothing to do with accidentally leaving a bag in my car, as many of my highly intentional experiments don't, I decided to see what would happen when you apply heat to Robin Eggs.

The result is downright neat.

Apparently the Whoppers, when in a heated environment, compress. The air that makes them light and fluffy leaves them, and they harden and become difficult to chew. Taste the same, of course, but solid.

Whereas the M&M-esque part isn't really affected. So you end up with a large, hollow M&M with a Whopper-flavored bullet inside. It's quite cool.

Anyway, I thought that if I'm gonna hold such highly intentional experiments, I may as well share my results with my avid readers. The casual ones, of course, never got this far in the entry.

Speaking of which, remind me sometime to tell you about the Gummy Heart....

Highly intentional?
I know about the Gummy Heart. That might have been intentional, but what started that process was nowhere near that...

You'll ruin my big secret!!!

(Yeah, this experiment was just as highly intentional as that one. But don't tell anyone!!!)

dood, honestly.
Ok it was fun at the office for a few minutes, I was a little intrigued by the Wooper Phinominon...but...to write a post about it?

Write your deepest darkest desires, what your heart and soul thrives for. Not what happened to the easter candy you left in your car. You bad jew!!! Where is your hanukkah gelt?

"Have you've caught The Gay??" Asks Anthony!

My Journal, my choices
This journal isn't the place for my deepest darkest desires. It's the place for stories about ants. Dictate your own content, not mine.

That's awesome. That's the best use of science I've heard all day.

You should start of Society of Highly Intentional Scientists. Your motto: "I meant to do that."
