                                  Put the melted sugar in a tin foil or greased soda stream bottle and pressurize as high as possible. Then keep it under pressure whilst it is setting. Dang. I should be hanging in the kitchen with Claire haha.

                                    You almost had it... All you needed was a pressure container. The dry ice does the rest, no baking soda needed ;)

                                                    When a guy who does science for his job says that making pop rocks is harder that aero jell to make then you know it’s gonna be hard to make

                                                    Edit: I mean like an actual remake

                                                      This episode shows how supportive the BA test kitchen members are of each other.

                                                      It feels like they would totally succeed at a ropes course or wilderness weekend challenge.

                                                          Does it foam like the candy Zots?

I did a experiment and Put pop rocks and soda together and put a ballon over the Erlenmeyer flask. All the balloon did was inflate the slightest bit. Not even close to be able to blow up. So it might cause bloating. But I’m almost positive it wouldn’t blow up.
