Why do Skittles dissolve faster in hot water?

The reason why sugar dissolves at a faster rate in hot water has to do with increased molecular motion. The added energy in the hot water causes water molecules to move faster and sucrose molecules to vibrate faster. This added movement tends to make the bonds between sucrose molecules easier to overcome.

Similarly one may ask, can Skittles dissolve?

Skittles are made of ingredients that are prone to dissolve in water. They also do it quickly, so you have neat science right away. Candy dissolving science is fun to test out with a variety of liquids and candies.

What is in the middle of a skittle?

Why does candy dissolve in vinegar?

In fact, candy might dissolve more slowly in vinegar, since the acetic acid molecules don't dissolve sugar as well as water does. Although your stomach does contain acid, it plays less of a role in digestion than you might think. Acids don't break up components in your food like carbohydrates (such as sugar) or fats.
