This Week's Winners!

We have two more winners of our Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs prize package. This week's first letter came to us from Lola, 7 years old, from Wilmington, North Carolina. She wrote,

"Dear Curiosity Quest
I'm curious about how you make gummy worms. Are they really worms?

Lola, How did you know that gummy worms are one of my favorite candies? I wonder how they are made too. Did you know that the candy company Trolli came out with the gummy worm in 1981. Gummy worms remain one of the top selling gummy items today.

Our next letter came to us from David, 6 years old, from West Covina, California. David wrote,

"Hi i'm a new kid of yours. I watch your show sometimes and I'm curious about marshmallows.
How do they make them."

David, one of my favorite things to do with my family is roast marshmallows in our fire pit at home. I hope that we can do a show on marshmallows soon, but in the meantime, did you know that Americans buy 90 million pounds of marshmallows each year, about the same weight as 1,286 gray whales. That is astounding! I am sure a couple of pounds of those are eaten at my house :)

Thank you to both of you for you letters. Congratulations!
