Make your own fizzy candy and other treats just like culinary chemist, Adrienne Attoms™. You can do it again and again just using ingredients from your own kitchen.
Picking Up S.T.E.A.M. When you give sugar, baking soda and citric acid a whirl in the mixer to make fizzy candy, not much happens. But pop the mixture in your mouth, and your saliva dissolves the citric acid and a chemical reaction happens! The citric acid (yes, it’s an acid) and the baking soda (a base) produce carbon dioxide bubbles, causing that fun fizzy sensation on your tongue! The citric acid also adds tanginess, while the sugar provides sweetness.
