Exploding Blow Pop

I was just reading professor Kelli Slunt’s Food and Chemistry blog for her Freshman Seminar this semester. I got sucked in by all the cool links and recipes, the class uses the site as a space to share links to food blogs, recipes, and information about culinary chemistry. It is a really fun mix of resources. Anyway, I was so intrigued I went back to her class blog for last semester’s seminar on the same topic. And I’m really glad I did because I caught something I missed the first go round, namely—the exploding Blow Pop experiment. What happens when you dip a Blow Pop in liquid nitrogen and then bang it on a hard surface? Well, thanks to this video taken on one the student’s iPhone—can you say Jail broken?—you can enjoy it in slow motion.
