Default Strength of taffy

My 4th grader wants to do a project that measures the strength of different flavors of taffy (which is the strongest: pineapple, watermelon, strawberry, etc..). Help!?! I don't know where to begin or even what we would be measuring!

Default umm....ok

Well, the flavor wouldn't even be involved with how strong it is, only the dye and flavor. What you could do though, is get different kinds of taffy, saltwater, original...etc. Then test them on the same scale, how long it stretches, how much weight it can hold(how many quarters, dimes, nickels, tec.), and other tests...these are just ideas but you can go off on these and change them if you'd like...hope this helps! Good-luck!
