There is another gummy bear vs. potassium chloride clip from years ago on the site, but this is a much larger gummy bear experiment.
Hugo Gorilla
"The reaction is said to be product favored."
Jet Bin Fever
That bear was one week from retirement.

Burned alive in a chemical fire is a pretty grisly way to go.

WHAT HAVE WE DONE! Soon we will all be living in fear of Gummi Joker Bear.

TSR
I'm sure you meant 'grizzly', Nikon

Killer Joe
About 30 seconds in I was all "Man, that's a good bowl, I need to get one of those!"
Scurrie
The bright blue flame indicates that this was a particularly sweet gummi bear.
Binro the Heretic
Would pork rinds produce the same result or is it necessary to process it into gelatin?

For some reason, I can't get the Gremlins theme song out of my head.

I thought that too...I was looking for little fur balls to fly out of him.

Cube
That isn't even the biggest gummy bear they have.
The Mothership
potassium will fuck you up. sodium too.

Innocent Bystander
So will this happen in my mouth if I eat bananas and gummy bears at the same time?

SolRo
Yes


TeenerTot
Try sodium.

Melting, melting, what a world, what a world!

I think it's molten potassium chlorate, not chloride, though.
Gmork
DO IT WITH A GIANT NOVELTY GUMMY BEAR!
Gmork
Erm, I mean an even GIANTER one!

We can only hope they destroy one of their largest gummy bears for us...science does keep outdoing itself so I am optimistic.

Or a gummy Venus de Milo, carved by gummi artisans who work exclusively in the medium of gummi.

Chalkdust
Will you two stop saying 'gummi' so much?

gambol
Google tells me that these guys got their chemistry wrong. This is a gummy bear v. potassium chlorate, a product of which reaction is potassium chloride.
Corpus Delectable
Yes. And the fact that they thought they could stop the reaction by smothering it or covering it with a lid indicates that they have not fucking clue one what they're doing.

HINT: The oxygen is coming from the perchlorate, idiots, which is under the lid with the gummi bear.

Still fun to watch.

muffinbutt
Five stars for your science.
