Candy Rocket Project

UHA Mikakuto, a major player in the Japanese sweets industry, has done what I am assuming very few candy companies have ever done, which is create a fully soft candy-powered rocket.

In order to facilitate the project, UHA Mikakuto called upon many experts from various labs and universities to figure out the best way to go about creating candy fuel.

In the end, the candy rocket was successfully launched by way of twenty Puccho soft candies and even reached an altitude of 813 feet!

That’s pretty impressive for a candy-powered rocket…

Hopefully, more details on the project will emerge soon, but until then enjoy watching the Candy Rocket Project in all its glory:
