Junk food is so delicious. The tastes of candy bars and smells of movie popcorn are almost irresistible. But junk foods have a secret. It's not an accident that we enjoy them so much. Science plays a major role in making and packaging these foods. "Where's the Science Here?" reveals why junk food is more amazing than you ever imagined! "Cobb's deverly conceived new series, Where's the Science Here?, focuses on food chemistry, not nutrition.... Well-digested explanations and low-tech projects reinforce Cobb's reputation for snappy hands-on science writing for children."---Booklist
