Candy: A Century of Panic and Pleasure by Samira KawashFor most Americans, candy is an uneasy pleasure, eaten with side helpings of guilt and worry. Yet candy accounts for only 6 percent of the added sugar in the American diet. And at least its honest about what it is—a processed food, eaten for pleasure, with no particular nutritional benefit. So why is candy considered especially harmful, when its not so different from the other processed foods, from sports bars to fruit snacks, that line supermarket shelves? How did our definitions of food and candy come to be so muddled? And how did candy come to be the scapegoat for our fears about the dangers of food?
In Candy: A Century of Panic and Pleasure, Samira Kawash tells the fascinating story of how candy evolved from a luxury good to a cheap, everyday snack. After candy making was revolutionized in the early decades of mass production, it was celebrated as a new kind of food for energy and enjoyment. Riding the rise in snacking and exploiting early nutritional science, candy was the first of the panoply of junk foods that would take over the American diet in the decades after the Second World War—convenient and pleasurable, for eating anytime or all the time.
And yet, food reformers and moral crusaders have always attacked candy, blaming it for poisoning, alcoholism, sexual depravity and fatal disease. These charges have been disproven and forgotten, but the mistrust of candy they produced has never diminished. The anxiety and confusion that most Americans have about their diets today is a legacy of the tumultuous story of candy, the most loved and loathed of processed foods.Candy is an essential, addictive read for anyone who loves lively cultural history, who cares about food, and who wouldnt mind feeling a bit better about eating a few jelly beans.

Making A Candy Waterfall: Can Solids Flow Like Liquids?
By: melissa rodriguez, Jasmine Mascorro, and Emily pineda. For instance, rocks are solid, water is a liquid, and air is a gas. What about something like sand? You can stand on sand like a solid, but if you are making a sand castle, you can pour it out of a bucket like a liquid. Granular materials can range in size from very small powders like sugar and flour that you use in your kitchen, to very large objects like rocks and boulders.

Next: Materials. A graduated one with a spout works best. Alternatively, you could use other types of small, solid materials. Tip: For the best results, try to only use candies with similar surface textures and avoid very light-weight candies, such as ones that are hollow or air-puffed.
In this physics science project, you will investigate the physics of granular materials that can flow like liquids even though they are made up of solid particles. For example, a spherical candy might flow at a different speed than an irregularly shaped cereal, and both of these This activity is not appropriate for use as a science fair project.

Introduction Have you ever poured sand out of a bucket or cereal out of a box and noticed it seems to flow' a lot like water? This is because both sand and cereal are granular materials. That means they're made up of solid particles, but they can actually flow like liquids! In this science activity you'll investigate how the size and shape of granular materials affect how they flow. And what better way to do this investigation than with some sweets! So get ready to put your Halloween candy to some good scientific use. Background Solid matter such as sand that is made up of many individual small particles is called a granular material, and the individual particles are called grains.
