Check out these great reviews below:

~ I did an entire Candy Cane science day, based on these activities. My students were absolutely enthralled with with each and every experiment. And as I'm writing this review in February, I STILL have a candy cane soaking in oil that has never dissolved. I can't throw it out. They check it every morning, and probably will until the end of the year.

~ We used this before Winter Break and it kept my students engaged!!! I can't believe they sat and watched a candy cane dissolve for 20+ minutes without complaint! I'm sure it helped that they got a candy cane after!!! We had lots of great discussions.
