If you're attending MD&M West in Anaheim, CA, be sure to stop by our booth (#2478) and visit with our crew: Karl Malchar, Theresa Smith, Jim Ritchey, Elena Mangano, and Chuck Gleason.

What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than putting hearts to the test ... gooey and candy hearts that is, NOT a real human heart!

We performed a few compression tests to measure the force each type of heart could withstand before breaking or "smooshing". Take a look at the video and give us your best guesstimate on the results. For every correct answer (or answers that are close), we'll send you a gooey Instron heart of your own (who doesn't want one?!?!).
