Pop Rocks



Last Halloween, one of the types of candy I had on hand were mini-packets of sour Pop Rocks. When I saw them in the store, I knew I had to have them... they were sour sugar after all. Once again there weren't too many trick-or-treaters, so I had way too many left-overs, and this being so, I was glad that I had bought only the stuff I really liked.  The reason I bring this up is because yesterday my nephew gave me a package of these new Pop Rocks... "Foaming" they are apparently. I haven't tried them yet, but I figure I should only do so in the privacy of my own home as I am not quite sure what "foaming" entails or exactly how much frothing in the mouth there will be. As he handed it to me he said that I must empty the whole package in my mouth... which...yes... I already knew of course.  Funny thing is that there are even instructions to this effect on the back...   I think I'm going to save these for a special occasion, as this may well fall into the "Ooh... exciting" category of my life. Oh... and I highly recommend that if you ever find Chocolate wth Pop Rocks embedded... do try it.

LOL! I, too, remember loving these as a kid. About 2 years ago, the dollar stores here in Phx started having them on occasion, and I got my kids to try them. They got hooked, and we usually have a few packets around all the time for when the younger one (5 y/o) is behaving well.

I can't actually remember if I had these when I was a kid... so long ago... It's definitely a fun treat for the grown-up kid that I am. One of the things I do remember is the chalky stick of candy that came in a package with sour sugar that you dipped it in...

Yeah, those too! We can find a similar 'Mexican-brand' of it here, and the kids like it as well.

Heh... your last comment just reminded me of "Hot Tamales", those little red chewy hot candies that I like, which they still sell.
