Santa left some moon dough in the stockings in this house. I had never had a chance to play with it before. We had had moon sand, which was rubbish – it got everywhere, and stuck inside the moulds. I was a bit nervous as the moon dough got tipped out – I had no idea whether its similarity to moon sand ended with the name or not.
Moon dough is completely different. It is brilliant. The texture is like nothing I have ever felt before. You press it into the moulds, and then it tips out perfectly.
Yet it breaks apart easily. I have had real trouble coming up with a comparison, but it is a bit like nougat with how easily it comes apart.
I was a bit curious as to how it works, and I found this interesting article on the Chemistry World blog. Go and have a look! Then go and buy some and play with it. You really need to feel it to understand it.
