Get Sparky For the Great American Backyard Campout
These fun candies appear to freshen your breath and taste great, right? But, did you know that when you bite on a wint-o-green lifesaver in the dark, it makes a spark? Actually, all sugar produces a spark when chewed, but it’s invisible to the human eye. So, why can you see a spark when eating a wint-o-green lifesaver? The wintergreen oil turns ultraviolet light into blue green light, thus allowing us to see the spark!
So, tonight when you are outside, grab those wint-o-green mints and set off some sparks.
