Who doesn't love coffee and dessert after a great meal, or on a lazy afternoon?
These magnets tell you what you're really eating:
Vanillin - primary component in pure vanilla extract
Theobromine - primary alkaloid in cocoa and chocolate
Sucrose - aka regular old sugar
and of course,
Caffeine - the life-giving molecule in coffee and tea
That cute organic chemist in your life will appreciate these magnets, as will your slightly geeky friends.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
Each GeekMagnet is hand-assembled from a clean and shiny glass marble, sturdy cardstock, and a strong rare earth neodymium magnet. The glue used is the good stuff, so your GeekMagnets are solidly constructed. Note that the glass marbles I use might have bubbles or other imperfections, giving these magnets a nice organic feel to go with the molecules represented.
I designed and printed the graphics myself so this unique quirky set can only be found here."
