Everyone enjoys chewy, gummy candies. However, after a while they get hard and lose their gumminess, which makes them more challenging to chew and ingest.

This is what a recent study published in Physics of Fluids hoped to addressed as a team of researchers examined how manipulating the molecular structure of gummy candy can improve their shelf life, making them more desirable for long-term consumption.
