Would You Give Popping Candy To A Baby?

Two American parents performed, in their own words, "experimental parenting" to see how their baby boy would react to eating popping candy.

The video of his reaction has since become a huge YouTube hit, with thousands logging on to see the look on his face as he consumed one 'pop rock'.

Personally, I found this a little uncomfortable to watch. Although it probably hasn't caused any long-term damage, I still feel like it's a little cruel to feed a baby something that takes them by surprise.

Have a look at the video below and let me know what you think. A funny video, or a little cruel?
