Watching A Red Hot Ball Of Nickel Destroy A Jawbreaker Is Mesmerizing

If you ever want to get away with doing something somewhat dangerous in your backyard, just say you're doing it for science.

At that point, you'll be given the psychological green light to go ahead and do whatever experiment you'd like to. Even if it involves placing a red hot nickel ball into a giant jawbreaker candy.

In a recent video uploaded to YouTube by Carsandwater, that's exactly what one daring pyromaniac did -- and it's awesome.

This YouTube channel is known for using red hot nickel balls to show the effects of heat on some of your favorite items like gummy bears, ice and watermelons.

This time, it's all about destroying jawbreakers. The New York-based YouTube sensation places the red hot nickel ball over the jawbreaker and the rest his history. If you're into candy splattering everywhere, this is for you.

Thanks, science!
