Experiment - Floating Candy

Some candy will sink and others will float. Did you know that?  I figured it would all float, but no. 

Not surprisingly, a Three Musketeers bar will float because of the air trapped in the candy making it less dense than water. 

What else will float or sink?

Toss a few of those lingering Valentine's Day candies (or those Halloween treats lingering in the back of the drawer) in water and let us know what happened.

  1. I was just writing up a similar experiment using regular objects for my kids preschool next week. Love your site - I found it through a search because I am doing sink or float with candy for an adult group talk on how to do science with preschoolers.
