Chock full of amino acids as well as their building blocks, Campbell's Primordial Soup Kit contains everything your young scientist needs to grow, or if they choose, to play with their food and try to create life per Dr. Miller's 1953 experiment.
Serving instructions: pour in 1/2 cup of water.
Microwave with included tinfoil wrapper to induce electric current. Stir, and serve. Best at 40 degrees C.
