Snap, crackle, pop

Guess what I found at the store the other day? Pop Rocks gum! Apparently it's kind of like Razzles in that you first enjoy it as the oh-so-fine Pop Rocks snapping candy, and then somehow magic happens in your mouth and it turns into ... bubble gum. I certainly hope the bubbles you blow have traces of the rocks in them.

Rob points out that you should also be sure to drink a few dozen Cokes while chewing it. Urban legends, come and get me!

I bought these the other day!!! My husband and I were in Wal-Mart when I spotted them and said "I have to get these!!"
I'm a fan of regular Pop Rocks and gum, so I thought it has to be good!

Not so much.... the flavor is ok - very bubble gum. But the pop isn't as intense and doesn't last as long as traditional Pop Rocks.

The gum was ok, but it lots it's flavor pretty quickly and got rubbery just as fast.

I wouldn't suggest anyone buy this - unless it's for scientific purposes of course.

You know what's bizarre? My old boss's boss was the grandson of the guy that invented pop rocks. I didn't believe him until I read in one of my "Uncle John's Bathroom Reader" about how pop rocks were invented, and lo and behold the name was familiar!
