Watch This Mad Scientist Perform Explosive Experiments With Peeps

Easter is only a few days off and we’re swept away with how many Peeps we’ve seen in the last couple weeks.

If you’re looking for something to do with all those marshmallow snacks, other than eat them, turn to Grant Thompson (AKA The King of Random).

Peeps variations included in this experiment were the Fruit Punch and Pink flavors, with a few other random candies he had lying around thrown in for good measure. Hey, go big or go home right?

The YouTuber and mad scientist got a hold of some potassium chlorate and decided to have a little Easter fun. He performs a few different experiments to see how the holiday marshmallow snack faired when exposed to molten potassium chlorate. The solid, crystalline, substance had to be melt down with a blow torch until it was a liquid state before it could be added to the Peeps.

Check out the video to see for yourself the explosive results from the sweet little experiment. And per the usual for zany experiments like this, do not try this at home.
