A type of candy that has ruined many teeth from people attempting to chew it is the famous Jawbreaker. Atomic Fireballs are a known Jawbreaker created by Salvatore Ferrara of the Ferrara Pan Candy Company created in 1954.
Atomic Fireballs were formed using the hot panned candy process. This process involves building candy pieces from single grains of sugar and tossing them into revolving pans while adding flavor, color and other candy ingredients. This process continues until the pieces become the desired size.
The atomic fireball has been helpful in my life when i need a small snack, just have a small little ball of cinnamon in a wrapper in my backpack to help me think through the day is quite nice. The atomic ball the first time I tried one had the same feeling as when someone takes a drink of some hot chocolate, it started to burn my tongue and made my face red. It’s always given me something to snack on during the day and make my face turn red and heat up.

Carnauba Wax; the Carnabau wax for the reason that it is an exothermic substance, thus it creates heat. Contains mainly esters of fatty acids (80-85%), fatty alcohols (10-15%), acids (3-6%) and hydrocarbons (1-3%). Specific for carnauba wax is the content of esterified fatty diols (about 20%), hydroxylated fatty acids (about 6%) and cinnamic acid (about 10%). Cinnamic acid, an antioxidant, may be hydroxylated or methoxylated.
This helps make the actual shape of the fireball hold together.
The Carnauba Wax is found in Northeastern Brazil on the Copernicia prunifera tree. It grows on the bark of the tree over time and is then harvested.
Food Starch is made up of alpha glucosidic bonds, which cause helix-shaped molecules, while cellulose build with beta glucosidic bonds giving straight molecules and a fibrous structure. In plants starch is organised in 1-140 m granules.
