Fig Newton's Cradle

A Newton's Cradle is a simple, practical demonstration of the laws of motion.

A fig newton is a tube of pastry filled with cooked figs.

The BorgCo Fig Newton's Cradle simply combines the two.

The frame of the cradle is made from extruded sections of pastry filled with cooked figs. The "balls" are hollow spheres of pastry coated with hard candy, and filled with cooked figs.

The strings are, well, just string. Still working on that.

Ideal for teaching young people the laws of motion.

1. Open box and carefully remove experimental equipment (Note "best before" date).

2. Demonstrate the laws of motion.

3. Eat the experimental equipment.

Why is there no category Physics: Food ?

       Sorry no bun, as you've created some kind of hopelessly unravel-able apostrophe vortex.   

       Fig Newton's Cradle (what you have now: the scientist and one fig - wrong!)   

       Fig Newtons Cradle (many figs; no scientist!)   

       Fig Newtons' Cradle (a cradle owned by many figs; joint tenancy?; where's the scientist?)   

       Fig Newton's' Cradle (???)

       The string could be dental floss for when the lesson progresses from physics and nutrition to dental hygiene.

       What about that red boot lace type stuff, never ate any of it myself, it always looked like it might ruin my tea, but it's certainly stringy. Or String cheese, again, never tried it myself, can't seem to find the string variety of a civilized cheese, like Stilton or Cheshire.

       Some stringy things are tough enough to work and sort-of- edible. Like muscle fibers. Or insufficiently cooked noodles. Or catgut.
