What Am I? Season 2 Episode 3

Below I’ve listed the key chemicals or elements found in a commonly available  product, which may (or may not) be slightly UK-centric.  All chemicals drawn below are part of the same product.  I’ve drawn the chemical structures of principal components where simple and appropriate; given the E number or CAS number (however tempting Sigma-Aldrich catalogue numbers would be) if no simple chemical structure exists for an additive; and given the chemical formulae or name if neither of the above make sense.  See if you can guess what this is!  If no one gets it within 24 hours, I will post a clue.  If you guess on Twitter (@kjhaxton), please DM your guess so others can play.

  1. So we have starch in (both forms), red dye, yellow dyes, blue dye, sugar, tartaric acid and sodium bicarbonate.

    Could be anything really, baked goods, candy, cereals, a host of snacks or potentially even medicine.

  2. Refreshers or lovehearts? Some kind of sharp-tasting starchy sweet.
