Wintergreen Lifesavers Spark- Great American Backyard Campout June 25

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.
