Glow-in-the-dark Jawbreakers

A new candy fad...

I bet that kids would love it. A big hit for sleepovers, campouts, and for halloween candy.

Now we just need to make that glow-stuff non-toxic and tasty... It's made out of two reacting chemicals, right? Just encapsulate the two chemicals in little micro-beads of sugary stuff, bind them together into a jawbreaker, and voila!

Ooh: Glow-in-the-dark Pop Rocks! Hee hee!

"...where you can't see it..." OH CONTRAIRE! Glow in the dark is prominently featured in another idea designed to aid vision in darkened locations Glow_20in_20the_20D...20Breast_20Implants

       Just suck on a glow in the dark ponytail fastener.

       So they glow when they're in your mouth because it's dark in there? And as soon as you open your mouth, it's not dark so they stop glowing? See where I'm going here?

       I've tried chewing on wintergreen Life Savers in a dark closet. It's fun!

       Yes, an interesting idea, but what good is glow-in-the-dark where you can't see it?
phoenix, Feb 27 2002
  

       My point. But if you can't see them, are they really glowing? Perhaps they could be renamed "Schroedinger's Glow-in-the-dark Jawbreakers".

       at least he/she got "voila!" right.

       Not a bad idea. I can picture kids sitting around in the dark, watching each other chomping on these things (think sleep-overs and back-yard "camping"). But I think the kids would prefer glow-in-the-dark bubble gum. That way, they could see their own bubbles glow.

       "What good is glow-in-the-dark where you can't see it?"   

       Ever stick your tongue out after eating a lollipop or popsicle, just because it's blue? You can't see them if you eat like a civilized person, but these are for kids to take out of their mouths and stick their tongues out and such.   

       Play with your food!

       The port-a-potties at the kids summer camp will also glow in the dark.

       Well, if you could use something radioactive, say tritium in the manufacture of the candy, as well as a phosphor of some sort, you should be able too get a nice glow going.

       How about using the refrigerator light to recharge them? You know, the light that goes out when the door is closed!
