Trick or treat! On today's episode of Distillations we give you a taste of both. First we introduce you to a candy called Drop that tastes like a mouthfull of chlorinated saltwater yet has a devoted following in the Netherlands. Then producer Mia Lobel joins the Culinary Institute of America's Peter Grewling for a demonstration on how chemistry is to thank for some of her favorite candies—and part of some confectioners' top secret recipes.
