Anatomy of a Scam

Some of may have seen this on Facebook, or elsewhere.

You know it has to be some sort of trick, or we’d all go out and buy a candy bar, eat it that way and never have to buy another one again.  So I decided to dissect the gif animation and find out how they did it.  Here are my results.

And in slow motion so you can really see what’s going on.

So, it’s not really a scam, just a funny little slight of hand trick that I couldn’t resist figuring out.

I like the idea of self-growing chocolate. Has Willie Wonka seen this?

If anyone could make it work, it would be Willie Wonka.
