After trick or treating this year, we decided to do some fun experiments with the "reject" candy, rather than just throwing it away. First we took the wrappers off the Tootsie rolls, taffy, and gum drops, and then put them in a pile on a cookie sheet. Then we put them in a 365 degree oven for about 10 minutes. What resulted was a big blob (that got smoky in the oven) of melted candy. The kids wanted to save it but I threw it in the trash. Then they spent the next hour or so putting various other reject candy(and some not so reject) in cups of water to see what colors the water would turn. I think they enjoyed this experiment more than they usually do the candy!
