    I haven’t seen it but my first thought is make a flavored hard candy with citric acid sugar then hand pull it and then add baking soda let it harder and then put it in a bag and break it with a hammer till it’s small

    I remember when I was in elementary school, one of my teachers said she experimented pop rocks and soda to see what would happen. So her and a couple of friends ate pop rocks and soda to see what would happen. When she got her results, which were nothing, she decided to test it against diet soda and nothing happened.

My 7 year old nephew is fascinated with all the buildings in New York and has actually been in that building/took a picture at the top when his parents went on a business trip to NYC.
    I wanna go there lol.
