I loved Pop Rocks as a kid. Remember the urban legend that if you drank soda and ate Pop Rocks your stomach would explode? Guess what? Not true. (Smiles) Did you know that the crackling sound comes from the release of tiny pockets of carbon dioxide. Who knew, right?
So, why all the talk about Pop Rocks. Well, I recently ran across a company press release stating that it is re-releasing its original retro grape flavor in celebration of the candy's 35th anniversary. Apparently the company rediscovered the lost recipe and decided to bring it back after a nearly three-decade absence.
In celebration of the candy's place in kids' lives everywhere (and in pop culture, too), I found this video busting the urban myth. Enjoy!
