Also called the "Marshmallow Experiment," the iodine ion from potassium iodide catalyzes the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide. When this occurs, oxygen gas rapidly forms. In the GIF you see here, soap and food colouring are also added, which traps the oxygen as it attempts to escape. The result is a foam snake that looks like an elephant's trunk or toothpaste.
