Chewy candy often contains oil. The oil softens the candy and helps keep it from drying out. It can also make candy more glossy or less sticky.
In this experiment, you will heat and cool the candy, which will allow you to see and touch the oil. When food contains oil, it also contains fat. Starburst candy contains 5 grams of fat per package, according to the candy's nutrition information.
