Technically, all chemistry sets are edible. It's just a matter of whether you survive to eat again...

"mmmmmm, (metallic) sodium..."

@primadogga: Ah, yes. Sodium metal. Great fun.

Many years ago, when I was 16, a bunch of us seriously nerdy guys "obtained" a jar of sodium bits and used them to terrorize the ducks in the university pond.

I would not suggest eating polymer pudding... depending on propagation methods there are way too many free radicals.

Ummm. Looks kinda interesting, but I would like just a tiny bit more detail. Quantity, contents, weight, something on which to make a decision. Other than:

"Here's a box. You can make stuff & eat it."

Mostly reminds me of Doctor Dreadful. That stuff was gross-tasting.

If anyone does find out more about this, I'd be interested. I hate to buy something for my daughter and not know just what she'd be getting, and I am wondering if I do get it, can I buy it now and put it away for a present?

@75grandville: Here's a bit more description. Admittedly, not much more.

This new Edible Chemistry Kit (available in the Maker Shed) will let you (and your kids) experience the excitement of being a scientist in a tasty, fun, and safe way. The kit includes plenty of ingredients and detailed instructions on how to make color changing soda, polymer pudding, foaming jelly, and several other experiments. You’ll learn all about acids, bases, solutions, formulas, reactions, carbonation, indicators, pigments, gels, and polymers in the best possible way; by using your mouth!

@rhmurphy: "by using your mouth!" I've fallen for that trick waaay too many times...

Would the jelly be 96% pure or 99% pure?
